Trump Sons: Russia Investigation 'Greatest Hoax of All Time,' a 'Witch Hunt'

June 6, 2017

President Trump's eldest sons on Tuesday dismissed the federal investigation into ties between the Trump campaign and Russia as the "greatest hoax of all time" and a "witch hunt."

Both Eric and Donald Trump Jr. called the probe into allegations of collusion between their father's campaign and the Russian government an effort to undermine his presidency.

"It's the greatest hoax of all time," Eric Trump said on ABC's "Good Morning America." "I was there throughout the campaign. We have no dealings in Russia. We have no projects in Russia. We have nothing to do with Russia."

"To me, it's without a question, reads and smells like a witch hunt," Trump Jr. added.

One day before President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey last month, both sons met with FBI agents in New York to discuss an attempted cyber attack on the Trump Organization.

ABC reporter Tom Llamas asked whether the sons discussed the meeting with their father or if they ever talked about the Russian investigation with the FBI agents. Eric Trump responded that the meeting revolved around a "totally separate topic."

Trump Jr. said that he feels there are people in the White House who are not working in the best interest of the president and those in Washington, D.C. actively working against him.
