WASHINGTON, DC — Just hours after testifying before the House Intelligence Committee that his meeting with Russian officials had “no connection” to the 2016 U.S. election, Donald Trump Jr. has strongly denied any association to the White House.
In a statement read by his lawyer, Sergei Mikhailov, the American President’s son strenuously denied “any and all ties to the current administration in America”.
“Donald Jr. has no involvement with the White House or the American government whatsoever,” Mr. Mikhailov said. “All issues relating to the American government have been placed firmly in the hands of the President’s other children—Ivanka, Eric, Tiffany and Baron.”
“My client does not really know Mr. Trump, has had no contact with him nor has he ever even held a personal conversation with him in his entire life,” Donald Jr.‘s attorney added, declaring any reports to the contrary are “fake news”.
Furthermore Mr. Mikhailov announced that his client would never cheapen his relationship with the Russian government by discussing political matters with the American government.
“My client would also like to assure any members of the Russian government present here today that my client has no divided loyalty and is firmly committed to promoting Russia’s interests both at home and internationally,” he said.
Sources inside the White House laughed off Donald Jr.’s claims, saying he “lied about everything” except for having never had a personal conversation with his father in 39 years.
Meanwhile Trump’s critics have argued that Donald Jr. doing nothing to actively help the American people, makes him the “perfect representative” of the current White House administration.
