    The Facts

    • Donald Trump Jr., the oldest son of former Pres. Trump, reportedly sat for an interview with members of the Jan. 6 Committee earlier this week.

    • Trump Jr. was a high-profile presence in his father's presidential campaign and was present at his side on the morning of the riot at the US Capitol.


    The Spin

    Left narrative

    The attack on the Capitol was not a spontaneous event. It was a deliberate and organized attempt to overturn the will of the American electorate. With every interview, the Jan. 6 Committee gets one step closer to holding those who organized and incited the violence accountable, including the former president.

    Pro-Trump narrative

    Trump Jr. met with the committee and didn't invoke his 5th Amendment right once because he has nothing to hide, and the cooperation of Trump's inner circle will reveal this partisan investigation for what it is: a witch-hunt.
