Donald Trump Jr. Says His Father Would Be ‘Stupid’ to Talk to Mueller in Russia Probe

As the special counsel continues to investigate Russia's interference in the 2016 election, Donald Trump Jr. said that he would advise his father not to sit down with Robert Mueller.

“I wouldn’t do it,” he told the hosts of Fox and Friends in an interview on Thursday morning. “I would think it would be stupid.”

Donald Trump Jr. also told the network that Mueller’s probe isn’t even about collusion anymore, and instead called the investigation a witch-hunt against the president. “It’s about, ‘Can we get him to say something that may be interpreted as somewhat off or inaccurate, and after 50,000 questions, maybe you make a mistake, and that's how we get you, and that's ridiculous,” he said.

President Donald Trump seems to share his son's sentiments and tweeted in May that the whole situation is a "hoax" and the idea that there has been any obstruction of justice is a "setup and trap."

"The reality is the greatest invetigative bodies in the world have been looking at this for two years, two years and nothing," Donald Trump Jr. added.

In the same interview, Fox and Friends hosts asked him about the recent comments from Senator Bob Corker, who said that the GOP is turning into a “cultish thing.”

“It’s not a good place for any party to end up with a cult like situation as it relates to a president that happens to be of, purportedly, of the same party,” Corker told reporters on Wednesday night.

In response, Donald Trump Jr. said that “if it’s a cult, it’s because they like what my father is doing.”
