As the investigation into the potential collusion between Russian state officials and the Trump administration continue to provide new revelations, many who have become pitted at the center of the controversy are making any and all attempts to mitigate and divert attention from the realities that are surfacing. From very senior officials that currently or previously worked for the administration, to the president’s internal family members, the suspicion surrounding the investigation has those close to Trump reaching to alleviate the surmounting issues.

While speaking in front of a group of conservative-leaning student activists at a college in West Palm Beach, FL on Tuesday, Donald Trump Jr. suggested that the ongoing Russia investigation has become a justification and means by which top government officials are attempting to block the Trump agenda.

Footage of Trump Jr.’s speech found him proclaiming that, “There is, and there are, people at the highest levels of government that don’t want to let America be America,” pointing to the concept that such higher-ups are purposely impeding President Trump’s agenda in order to maintain political influence, rather than allowing the outcome of the elections to dictate policy measures and plans.

In more recent revelations regarding the context of the investigation, Trump Jr. himself has started to play a primary role in special counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing inquiry. Such discoveries found that Donald Trump Jr., along with former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, and Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, met with a Russian lawyer in 2016 who promised to provide damaging information against Hillary Clinton.

When speaking to the group on Tuesday, Trump Jr. further attempted to assuage the ongoing situation by likening it to a hypothetical scenario, asking attendees to look in retrospect and analyze the investigation by replacing President Trump with a newly-elected President Obama. In doing so, he stated, “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?”

Such a statement insinuated that Mueller’s team has become wrought with individuals who are biased, ideologically oppose President Trump, and therefore cannot inherently come forth with a truly objective result to any investigation. Through an array of hypothetical circumstances and alluding to the “rigged system” that his father repeatedly mentioned on the campaign trail, Trump Jr. implied foul play and conspiracy coming from the FBI and the appointed special counsel.

As new revelations are uncovered almost daily regarding interactions and communications between Trump officials and the Kremlin, such an outburst on behalf of Trump Jr. may only serve to fan the fire of controversy that has begun to engulf the administration. Given his evidently integral role in both the team surrounding President Trump, as well as concerns about his own involvement in the meetings, a continuation of mudslinging and ill-conceived assertions will not have the beneficial or mitigating impact that Trump Jr. clearly attempted to imply.
