Trump says son was 'open, transparent and innocent' in discussing Russia emails

The president defended his son on Wednesday.

“My son Donald did a good job last night. He was open, transparent and innocent,” the president tweeted, referring to his son’s appearance last night on Fox News after releasing the emails. “This is the greatest Witch Hunt in political history. Sad!”

Minutes later, he posted a second tweet, writing, “Remember, when you hear the word ‘sources say’ from the Fake Media, often times those sources are made up and do not exist.”

In a statement Tuesday, the president said, “My son is a high-quality person, and I applaud his transparency.”
