It would be a gross understatement to suggest that the Trumps have a peculiar idea about the proper conduct of American political leaders. The president, since taking office, has acted as though he’s the head of a dictatorship, attempting to undercut the American justice system at every turn instead of working with it and moving forward.

Among other moves to that end, he abruptly fired the FBI Director because, essentially, he didn’t like him.

That’s not where the issues, end, however. Most recently, the president supported House Republicans, led by House Intel Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, in their production and pushing of a memo alleging surveillance abuses at the FBI.

This memo has been hotly contested by both Democrats and the FBI itself, but serious questions about the very accuracy of the document did not stop Donald Trump Jr. from going on Fox and praising the document, officially released last week, as supposedly “sweet revenge” for him and his family.

Speaking to host Jesse Watters, Trump Jr. acted as though there are no questions about the document’s legitimacy and with its release, President Obama has been implicated in some kind of grand conspiracy to bring down Donald Trump.

After telling Watters that the entire Russia investigation “always has been… so ridiculous,” the president’s son commented, speaking of the supposed surveillance abuses:

‘There is a little bit of sweet revenge in it for me and certainly probably the family in the sense that if they wouldn’t have done this, this stuff would be going on. This would be going on at the highest levels of government. They’d be continuing to do it to my father, trying to undermine his actions. Imagine how effective he can be, given the year he’s had, without this cloud over his head.’

Trump Jr. claimed that “nothing” has been found during the course of the Russia investigation. Has he not heard of Paul Manafort, Rick Gates, George Papadopoulos, or Michael Flynn? All four of those men have faced charges from Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and yet Trump Jr. has the gall to say that “nothing” has come of the Russia investigation.

That’s not “nothing.”

The issues that the Nunes memo claims have persisted in the nation’s justice system revolve around the government’s supposedly corrupt surveillance of Trump associate Carter Page, who has long had suspicious ties to the Kremlin.

According to the memo, the government withheld information from the judge who granted their warrant which would have undercut the legitimacy of their very request.

Even though, again, both Democrats and the FBI claim that key pieces of information have been twisted or left out of the Republicans’ story, that hasn’t stopped the Trumps from touting the memo as proof of the whole Russia investigation being a sham.

Trump himself has done so on Twitter.

Besides the questions about the very accuracy of the document, the Nunes memo itself undercuts Republicans’ claims of the Russia investigation being a sham, since according to the memo, the Russia investigation was started separately from the supposedly corrupt warrants to monitor Page.
