According to radical left-wing Representative Hakeem Jeffries of New York, President Trump‘s son, Donald Trump Jr., is now under criminal investigation in Washington, D.C.
“Donald Trump Jr. is now under criminal investigation in the District of Columbia. Keep the pressure on every single person who incited the violent attack on the Capitol,” Representative Jeffries wrote in a post on Twitter.

Representative Jeffries did not provide any details about the investigation, or the reasons behind it, but it appears that it may be related to the riot in the Capitol building in Washington, D.C. It is unclear how investigators believe Donald Trump Jr. was related to or influenced the riot.
Left-wing “news” website Political Tribune tried to claim that Trump Jr. encouraged his father and the crowd at the Capitol, writing: “Trump enjoyed the scene showing his supporters fighting for him, and he did very little to quell the violence… One man caused the chaos, destruction, death, and mayhem that we all witnessed. Donald Trump Jr. enabled him and egged on the crowd, whipping the outgoing president’s supporters into a frenzy.”
Pretending to report the news, while really just spouting biased, inaccurate statements, the outlet wrote: “Trump gave an incendiary speech, urging the crowd to march to the Capitol and demand legislators gathered to formally confirm President-elect Joe Biden’s election victory address his absolutely false claims of widespread voter fraud… Donald Trump Jr., the outgoing, likely twice-impeached president’s oldest son, is under criminal investigation… As for Junior’s father, he will go down as the only president in U.S. history to be impeached twice.”
