Donald Trump Jr. pushed a conspiracy theory during a speech to conservative college student activists at the Palm Beach County Convention Center in Florida.
Despite hard evidence, criminals charges and guilty pleas that have resulted from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the Trump campaign’s collusion with the Russian government, Trump Jr. claimed the investigation was tainted because one FBI agent — who was fired from the investigation in July — sent private text messages about not liking his dad:
Imagine what would happen if we rolled back the clock to 2008 and a conservative director of the FBI and high-up people in the FBI that were leading all of these investigations wrote an e-mail about an insurance policy, the dossier, in the unlikely event that Barack Obama was elected president?What do you think would happen?
Do you think the media would cover that? Yeah. Do you think it would be brushed under the rug, like, “Oh, it’s nothing, it doesn’t mean anything?” There would be revolution in the streets.
You know, my father talked about a rigged system throughout the campaign, and people are like, “Oh, what are you talking about?” But it is. And you’re seeing it. There is and there are people at the highest levels of government that don’t want to let America be America.
