President Trump can get back to work now that the “10-month witch hunt” is over, according to his son, Donald Trump Jr.
Appearing on Fox News’ “Hannity” Thursday night, the younger Trump noted that former FBI Director James Comey’s credibility “has to be shot” after his testimony before the Senate intelligence committee Thursday showed him to be many things, including a liar and a leaker.
“This is what they did to distract him from being able to get the stuff done that he was elected to ultimately do, and I think now that this has all passed, he can go back to doing what he promised he was going to do,” said Trump.
Comey’s failure to confront the President was quite telling, his son points out. “The head of the FBI goes, ‘Well, if I was a stronger man’ … I mean, what kind of response is that? … Not, ‘Hey, maybe I should follow the law and procedure and say that Trump was doing this. Maybe I should let him know that this was happening.’ But instead, he decides to do this.”
Trump says that the hearing was an eye-opening look into “the swamp” that is Washington, D.C.
“Reasonable people are seeing that this has just been one big witch hunt. They see how disgusting the swamp really is,” said Trump. “They see the teeth that are there, and I think they’re going to realize that, ‘Hey, give the guy a chance. Let him do what he was elected to do, and he’ll do a phenomenal job.'”
