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.
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.
