Donald Trump Jr., one of Trump’s three sons, is currently running the Trump Organization network of businesses along with his brother, Eric Trump. According to the Trump family, the Trump Organization is now operating entirely separately from the Trump administration, so there’s no potential for conflicts of interest.
Update: Watch Comey’s testimony live
In other news, businessman Donald Trump Jr. is currently spending the morning watching former FBI Director James Comey testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee and tweeting about it. (The president himself has not tweeted so far.)
In particular, he wants us to know that the time his dad asked the then-FBI director to drop an investigation into his former national security adviser wasn’t at all an effort to interfere with an ongoing investigation.
1/3 Flynn stuff is BS in context 2 guys talking about a guy they both know well. I hear "I hope nothing happens but you have to do your job"— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) June 8, 2017
2/3 very far from any kind of coercion or influence and certainly not obstruction!— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) June 8, 2017
3/3 Knowing my father for 39 years when he "orders or tells" you to do something there is no ambiguity, you will know exactly what he means— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) June 8, 2017
He also goes after Comey personally.
So if he was a "Stronger guy" he might have actually followed procedure & the law? You were the director of the FBI, who are you kidding?— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) June 8, 2017
And praises Marco Rubio.
Solid point and seems rather convenient for the partisan nonsense we have seen play out for months. https://t.co/PpYkSVRzmA— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) June 8, 2017
All part of a normal day in the life of a busy businessman who is in no way involved in politics.
