Eric Trump Discusses Hunter Biden Controversy
Eric Trump said if he or his older brother, Don Jr., lied on a federal form as Hunter Biden allegedly did in paperwork to buy a pistol — which is the subject of a controversial incident involving the Secret Service — they would be jailed for life.
Eric Trump was asked by Fox host Maria Bartiromo on “Sunday Morning Futures” about the allegations swirling around President Biden’s son and the gun that turned up missing in 2018 — and his involvement in business dealings in China and Ukraine, as reported by The Post last October.
“Obviously, Hunter is a troubled kid, right? There’s no question about that. But if that was Don or I, or if that was anybody in the Trump family, and we lied on a federal form, we’d be in jail for the rest of our lives. We really would be,” former President Donald Trump’s son told Bartiromo.
“And it’s amazing. There’s no one even, there’s no one even talking about that. He lied on multiple questions. It wasn’t just the drug question. He lied on multiple questions,” he said.
“And I think a lot of people, Maria, in this country are sick and tired of the unequal scales of justice,” Eric Trump said.
Asked on the gun purchase transaction receipt whether he was an “unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance?” he answered: “No,” Politico reported.
But five years earlier he had been discharged from the Navy Reserve after testing positive for cocaine and he and other Biden family members have been open about his history of drug abuse.
But emails found on Hunter’s hard drive obtained by The Post from the contents of a laptop he left at a Wilmington, Del., repair shop in April 2019 contradicts their claims.
“She stole the gun out of my trunk lock box and threw it in a garbage can full to the top at Jansens [sic]. Then told me it was my problem to deal with,” Hunter wrote.
“Then when the police the FBI the secret service came on the scene she said she took it from me because she was scared I would harm myself due to my drug and alcohol problem and our volatile relationship and that she was afraid for the kids.”
