Disgraced Florida retiree Donald Trump’s son Eric apparently can’t handle the number of subpoenas being sent his family’s way, so he engaged in quite a bit of projection during an appearance on Fox News.
The Trump Organization and family members are the subjects of multiple investigations ranging from tax fraud to seditious conspiracy. The probes are being conducted by federal prosecutors, state prosecutors, and Congress.
So many investigations require subpoenas for documents and other potential evidence prosecutors can use to build their cases. That means personal records, business records, and executive branch records from Trump’s single term in the White House, which was marred by scandal after scandal, weaponizing federal agencies including the Justice Department, and a failed attempt to overthrow democracy.
On Sunday, Eric Trump complained about the subpoenas on Fox News and falsely accused Democrats of being the ones engaged in weaponization against their political opponents.
“The problem with the Democrats is they dig so deep that they always find themselves,” Trump said. “And the reason I’m frustrated about this is every single day since my father ran for president, my father and our entire family and our company has been under investigation. Every single day, Maria, we get subpoena after subpoena after subpoena.”
“But, I mean, they weaponized the entire system in this country,” he continued. “They’ve weaponized the DOJ. They’ve weaponized our military. They weaponized the educational system in this country. They’ve weaponized the medical system in this country. The Democrats weaponize absolutely everything they can to use again their political opponents.”

Donald Trump literally wanted to use the military to orchestrate a coup and kill Americans who were protesting against him and his policies. He absolutely weaponized the DOJ to persecute his political rivals and shield him from lawsuits and indictments. Trump also diverted medical resources from Democratic-controlled states to red states during the pandemic and targeted educational policies that don’t whitewash American history.
Eric Trump should be grateful that federal prosecutors and Congress are only sending subpoenas. Because he and the rest of his family should be sitting in jail cells right now for all the crimes they’ve committed. And that could still happen.
