Esteemed legal scholar Eric Trump struggled to maintain his composure when sharing his opinions about New York Attorney General Letitia James’ legal actions against his family on Fox News last night.
James’ has been leading an ongoing civil investigation into potential Trump Organization fraud, including whether the family business lied about the value of its real estate holdings for tax purposes.

“She ran on the campaign promise of suing my father because she didn’t believe in his political party,” the son of the ex-president, who shares a birthday with the January 6 insurrection, said to Sean Hannity.
Then he went on claim the suit “violates the Constitution.” (Fact check: No, it doesn’t.) From there, he grew increasingly more emotional and irrational.

“This is what you’d expect from Russia,” he ranted. “This is what you’d expect from Venezuela! This is third-rate stuff!”

Last week, Eric’s two older siblings, Don Jr. and Ivanka, asked a judge to quash subpoenas they had received from James’ office demanding their testimony in the investigation.
The toxic brother-sister duo accused James of having ulterior motives, saying she was trying to get their testimony in the civil case for the sole purpose of handing it over to criminal prosecutors later on.

“This is a rather transparent gambit,” their lawyers argued. “By attempting to play both sides, Ms. James is in a position to cherry pick her investigatory methods–civil or criminal–in a calculated manner to, for example, leverage a Fifth Amendment assertion and obtain an adverse inference.”
Ivanka and Don Jr. said they “might” (key word: might) consider testifying if they could be guaranteed that no criminal investigation involving them would be launched. Because that is a request only absolutely completely totally 100% innocent people make.
Here’s how people on Twitter are reacting to Eric’s legal temper tantrum last night…
Someone tell Eric Trump that Letitia James holding his idiot father accountable for breaking the law isn’t against the fucking Constitution.

Remember when Eric Trump and his siblings stole money from kids with cancer and then had to take a class on how not to be corrupt?
Yeah, good times.

Offer him some cheese with that.
I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, and keep on saying it:
When will Fox News lose it’s broadcasting licenses over their hosts (yes, plural) involvement in 1/6?
If this is what happens in Russia, wouldn’t they support it? Chump was always up Putin’s a$$. He even agreed with Putin on many occasions.
My thoughts exactly
Eric is just mad because Jr. and Ivanka always get everything and he never gets anything!
he’s just like his dad, self professing to some sort of expertise that he really has no expertise at. these types of people tell themselves they’re the best and what’s really true is they’re crappy at everything and have to excel at something even if false.
Better yet, lets put daddy before he commission.
Ha ha ha, he is another Trump loser!
It is likely that this voice will deepen when his testicles descend!
you all are cry babies and big huge and the best Losers!!!!! go away pay you bills !!!!!!
Sounds like he got his education at Trump University.
Does Eric Dump realize that both New York State and the federal government have constitutions and that AG Letitia James’s investigations violate neither? Or that based on both state and federal laws his lying, treasonous, psychopathic daddy should be investigated extensively, very likely indicted, tried, and convicted of numerous crimes? It’s not like he’s a stranger to state courts (New Jersey, New York, etc.) to begin with!
Man, if I were Eric Trump I’d just keep my mouth shut and stay out of public sight because I’d be so embarrassed that me and my brother had to grow beards because our weak chins are the result of our Daddy’s regressive knuckle-dragging Neanderthal genes.
You are suggesting that if you were Eric Trump that you would be self aware but Eric is defined by his lack of self awareness. So it is really a catch 22.
His law degree must be hanging on the refrigerator using alphabet magnets.
he is sofa king stupid that when he gets hauled in front of any judge he will plead the 5th dimension.
for the life of me I cant imagine anyone being interested in what eric trump had to say, other than grampa munster sean hannity.
