Disgraced former President Donald Trump’s business has been charged for committing tax crimes, and Eric Trump incriminated the company during a Fox News interview that prosecutors can now use against the Trump Organization.
It is strongly advisable that defendants in a criminal case remain silent, or at the very least avoid confirming the criminal behavior you have been accused of and charged for committing. But Eric Trump, often considered the dumbest Trump kid, appeared on Fox News to whine about the case against the company for which he serves as an executive, only to literally make the case for prosecutors.
According to the Huffington Post, Eric Trump “appeared on Fox News and railed against the district attorney’s office for focusing “on $3.5 million to take down a political opponent” when, he claimed, crime “is rampant” and people are leaving “dirty” and “disgusting” New York City “in record numbers.”
“I mean, this is what they do, this is New York state for you,” Trump claimed. “This is worse than a banana republic. It’s truly horrible.””
And that’s not all, Eric Trump also went on to claim that Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg was paid “employment perks,” which is illegal because it’s a way to evade paying taxes.
Here are the videos via Twitter:

Does the lawyer for the indicted company that Eric is an EVP at know he’s on TV? pic.twitter.com/7udDv0VO41

Yeah, Eric Trump just incriminated his family and his family’s business on national television in a clip that prosecutors can use in court.
Twitter users mocked him for being such a dunce.
Clearly no one at Trump Org has told the nepotism hires that commenting on the criminal matter is unwise. Run your mouth, Eric. Run your mouth. pic.twitter.com/iulouUmiAn

Why does Eric trump insist on lying about living a clean life when he stole money from child cancer patients and his wife Lara stole money from dog rescue charities, as if his criminal history isn’t public knowledge? More like living a shitty toxic life.

Eric Trump went on Fox to complain about New York & the indictments of the Trump Organization.
His defense of daddy?
1) $3.5 million isn’t all that much
2) Others steal more
3) New York sucks
4) Hunter Biden

This morning they charged the Trump Organization with crimes and tonight Eric Trump admitted to those crimes on live TV.

These things you are admitting to are against the law. That makes them criminal.

There is an arcane legal term for what Eric & Don, Jr. have done, get on TV and say the indictments are referencing trivial things all companies, including the Trump Organization, do. It’s called “an admission.”

Eric Trump just admitted to committing crimes. It’s time for him to be indicted and arrested.
