In an op-ed published in Breitbart on Wednesday, Donald Trump Jr. accused Democrats of knowing the conclusions of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigations as early as 2017 and called the investigation an “attempted coup.”

“Even though Mueller’s investigation debunked the liberal conspiracy theories about ‘collusion’ and ‘obstruction,’ it did accomplish a large part of what the Democrats were hoping for. The attempted coup served as a constant distraction from the President’s policy agenda for nearly two years, cast a shadow over the 2018 midterm elections that helped Democrats take control of the House of Representatives and double-down on their obstructionist political strategy, and even took a few Republican scalps along the way

“The overarching shame of Russiagate is that, egged on by a wildly irresponsible media, some people were actually hoping to find out that their President was a Russian agent. The second shame, nearly as important, is that Democrats were able to exploit those people’s delusions to justify a two year, taxpayer-funded opposition research team.”
