On Wednesday’s interview in Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” Donald Trump Jr. blasted House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) for conducting the impeachment inquiry into his father, President Donald Trump.

“If I lied, even a little bit in front of those guys like Adam Schiff has lied to the American people, and in front of Congress the other day, they’d throw me in jail for perjury,” Trump Jr. said. “He’s done it over and over. He’s probably the person that magically leaked my emails and edited them, which was the big CNN bombshell which made it seem like I got the WikiLeaks stuff a week before as opposed to a week after.”

He continued to categorize the Democrat from California as the “Jussie Smollett of Congress on steroids,” referring to the disgraced star of the show “Empire.”

“I was in there for about nine hours, and magically when I got done at about 7:30 in the night, I go look at my Twitter feed to catch up on the news of the day,” the president’s son said, “And starting at about the first bathroom break, CNN is live-tweeting essentially the contents of the hearing.”

“Adam Schiff has never been afraid of a microphone,” he added. “He’s never met a camera he didn’t love. And frankly, he’s never met a camera he didn’t lie to. Adam Schiff is basically the Jussie Smollett of Congress on steroids.”

Earlier, Trump Jr. accused Democrats of hating the president more than loving America.

A breaking news article published on Wednesday, Oct.2, said that Adam Schiff knew about the whistleblower’s complaint against President Trump beforehand. Following the news, Republicans criticized Schiff for deliberately lying

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) said that Schiff “withheld this info from the American people” and even from the House Intelligence Committee. “In light of this news, it’s hard to view impeachment as anything aside from an orchestrated farce.”

House Minority Leader, Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), also stated that Adam Schiff needs to be removed from the chair of the committee.
