Trump News Today: Eric Trump ridiculed for Biden comments as Pence’s Jan. 6 location revealed

Eric Trump says Putin could say Donald Trump was ‘a very strong person’

Donald Trump and his children Donald Trump Jr and Ivanka Trump have filed a lawsuit in their fight against the New York Attorney General’s attempt to depose them in a civil investigation into the Trump Organization. Their lawyers argue that a lower court erred in denying the Trumps’ request to quash their subpoenas.

The former president started his week with a bizarre phone interview on Fox Business in which he called Vladimir Putin’s nuclear threats an “n word”, dismissed climate change as “a thing called weather”, and insisted he would continue to run on the supposed theft of the 2020 election despite the host’s suggestion it could hurt Republicans at the polls.

His exciting Monday morning comes after an event in Florida over the weekend in which he appeared to promise a return to the White House.

Following his remarks, Republican U.S. Representative Liz Cheney warned that the ex-president could face criminal penalties for the attacks on the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, telling NBC that the House Select Committee investigating the assault was considering recommending criminal punishment for the “kind of supreme dereliction of duty you saw with President Trump.”

Meanwhile, “Cowboys for Trump” founder Couy Griffin has been convicted of a misdemeanor charge stemming from the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. He faces up to a year in prison for trespassing on restrictive grounds in the capital. He was acquitted of a separate disorderly conduct charge.
