Eric TrumpThe son of former President Donald Trump went on Fox News to complain about the barrage of summons received by the Trump Organization and members of the Trump family. Twitter users made fun of him.
On Sunday, Mr Trump told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo that the Trump team was facing multiple investigations and would have to respond to the summons “every single day”.
“The problem with Democrats is that they dig so deep they always find themselves in there,” Trump said. “And the reason I’m disappointed about this is every single day since my father ran for president, my father and our whole family and our company are under investigation. Every single day, Maria, we’ve been summoned. Summons followed after summons.”
“They have made the whole system in this country a weapon,” he said. “They’ve got weapons two. They have made our army a weapon. He made the education system a weapon in this country. They have made the medical system a weapon in this country. Democrats are fully armed to use against their political opponents,” Trump claimed.
Mr Trump was increasingly ridiculed on Twitter for his complaints about the criminal justice system after Trump.
“If Eric Trump is upset because he and his family are getting summon after summon, wait until they’re in prison and pass from prisoner to prisoner,” says Lee Mace tweeted.
“Eric Trump was yelling at Fox that ‘every day my family gets summon after summon after summon’. Plus the crayon subpoenas his kids give him on Father’s Day,” writer Paul Rudnick tweeted.
Former President Trump is facing multiple criminal investigations into his business deals, real estate taxes and capital riots on January 6.
Mr Trump has said of the investigation: “Nothing is more corrupt than an investigation that is desperately looking for a crime.”
He is also the subject of several civil litigation. He has been accused of violating the Voting Rights Act and the Ku Klux Klan Act – a law that prohibits intimidation tactics against public officials. There are also several claims of fraud against the former president.
It would be unprecedented to prosecute the former president, and Mr Trump no longer enjoys the security of a high office.
New York Law School professor and former Manhattan assistant DA Rebecca Roife told Rolling stone Magazine: “This is a significant concern for him as he is no longer in office.”
“If he has committed a crime like anyone else, I don’t understand how he can avoid it,” she said.
A federal conviction will not prevent Mr Trump from running for the White House again in 2024.
Lawyers in the tax fraud case against the Trump Organization and its chief financial officer Alan Weiselberg returned to court on Monday.
The New York State Supreme Court follows several criminal charges that were unheard of by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. nearly three months ago.
It is alleged that Mr Weiselberg, who has worked for the Trump family since 1973, and the Trump Organization over the course of 15 years partly paid executives at the company by using tax-free benefits such as unpaid apartments. tax fraud. Car, and private school tuition for Mr. Weiselberg’s grandchildren.
Mr Weiselberg and the Trump Organization have both pleaded not guilty and Mr Trump has said the investigation is politically motivated.
