Donald Trump, Jr. Is Being Torched On Twitter Over Absurd Defense Of His Father’s Attempt To Cover Up Russian Scandal

In an attempt to defend his father’s effort to cover up the Russian scandal, Donald Trump Jr. retweeted a message from Fox News host Geraldo Rivera which defended Donald Trump’s request for FBI Director James Comey to end his investigation of fired national security adviser Michael Flynn.

“News Flash, @realDonaldTrump hoping @JamesComeyFBI cuts @MikeFlynn some slack because he is a ‘good man’ is not close to #Obstruction,” Rivera tweeted Wednesday morning.
