If there is one thing that we know about Donald Trump, it is that he is fiercely loyal to, and protective of, his children.
Trump has not only demonstrated this familial fortitude in his direction defense of Ivanka, Jared, Don Jr., and others, but also through his choice to attack Joe Biden’s son Hunter during the 2020 election. The Don likes to face his obstacles head-on, after all, and with a sense of finality, so of course he would go after his opponent’s kid. It’s the very last thing that Trump would have wanted for himself, and so he understands the gravity of the maneuver.
Now, the tables are turned again, and there is little doubt that Donald Trump is furious about it.
For months, some of Donald Trump’s top advisers have assured him that he has virtually nothing to fear from the Manhattan district attorney’s tax investigation, which they view as merely “fishing” for information. But investigators with the D.A.’s office have been expanding their criminal probe into Trump’s business empire, asking questions and grilling witnesses—as recently as in the past few days—not only about Trump but particularly about his eldest son, Don Jr., and Allen Weisselberg, one of the former president’s most trusted officers, The Daily Beast has learned.take our poll - story continues below
This latest round of interest in Trump Jr. and Weisselberg’s activities, as well as other new developments, underscore the resources and the gravity that New York prosecutors are devoting to the investigation, just as Trump continues to publicly decry the probe as another example of Democrats picking on him.
In fact, there is a train of thought that suggests that Trump’s future political aspirations, (which could very well be on display in just a few days at CPAC), could be bolstered by a desire to again be in a better position to protect his children from such “witch hunts”, as the former President himself has described these investigations.
