Far-left tactics being used against his father — including the FBI raid of the former president’s Mar-a-Lago home — is all part of an ‘intimidation package,’ says Donald Trump Jr. He tells Glenn why recent Biden Administration claims about that FBI raid are ‘lies,’ and he calls out the shocking lack of transparency from the federal government: ‘What's going on is absolutely disgusting.’ Plus, Don Jr. explains what Americans MUST do at the ballot box this fall to stop the dangerous, far-left ‘games’ that currently are being played.

GLENN: Honored to have Donald Trump Jr. on with us, executive vice president of Trump Organization and author of Liberal Privilege.
Welcome, Don. Welcome to the program. How are you?
DON: I'm doing okay. Good to be with you guys.
GLENN: Yeah. I have to tell you, I saw your father at CPAC, and I sat there. And I listened to him, and I thought, there is no one in American history, no one who has gone through what your -- what your father and your family has gone through. And then, Monday, this happens.
Let me -- let me get some -- just some facts here from you. First of all, they have released the warrant, but not the affidavit. Your dad has come out and said, absolutely, I insist that you release it.
Any chance of that happening? Have you heard anything?
DON: You know, I doubt it. You know, you see what happens. It's not our first rodeo. None of this surprises us. Merrick Garland gets up on TV. They want total transparency. And then no. We can't actually do that. They will get our lackeys in the liberal media to run with it. As if that's meaningful or real. And then they do absolutely nothing. Remember, Merrick Garland had no knowledge of it. Then he had knowledge when he signed off. Then it turns out, he's been weighing the decision for months. It's all a lie. And that's it real problem, hey, do this stuff. I think you saw it yesterday, with the passports. They took his passports, which weren't a part of the warrant. They took picture books, which probably weren't part of the warrant. But none of that matters. Then they leak it Norah O'Donnell. No, no, no. We didn't actually do it. It takes about six seconds to prove this stuff.
Meanwhile, the other information and the misinformation that's put out there goes viral, and they pretend this stuff is about (inaudible). I mean, think about it. They used the FBI's HRT. The Hostage Rescue Team, to serve this search warrant. You know, that's like the SEAL team of the FBI. To -- to serve a warrant on an empty house. I understand that three weeks ago, according to the media, Donald Trump apparently choked out two very heavily armed and very young Secret Service agents, to take over, to drive down to his supporters, at -- you know, they heard that from a witness who seemed to have perjured herself, when Secret Service agents themself said, hey, we would like to testify, and say that didn't even come close to happening.
You know, now they don't want to hear from them anymore.
I mean, think about that, they use the HR team, the Hostage Rescue team to try to serve this warrant. Like Donald Trump is going to -- but like --
GLENN: So how many times -- how many times did they -- because they contacted your dad. He put a lock on the door where they were done, at their request. Where was this in the back and forth?
DON: Yeah. Listen to me, they have been working with him for months. They said he's been nothing but cooperative. All they had to do was ask.
He clearly said that. And they turn over whatever they were looking for. But they can't do that. They don't want to do that. They wanted to do it under the guise. They create the intimidation factor of going in there with the HR team. You know, we have to really make sure that people learn not to speak out against us. I don't know of an institution in America, that destroyed their credibility more than the FBI. They clearly haven't stopped anything, in -- in months. And then, you know, then they get on TV. How dare they speak out about the FBI. Who functioned so admirably, when Peter Strzok, and Andy McCabe go on TV, and talk about integrity, after lying -- when they sign off on faulty FISA warrants, when others literally get caught lying.
There -- you know, they're back in their jobs, like nothing happened. Because it was against Donald Trump.
You know, what's going on is absolutely disgusting. It's clearly an intimidation package. You know, the Deep State is rearing its head. And imagine the media.
If Donald Trump weaponized the FBI to go after his political enemies, and they did this to Barack Obama. Their heads would explode. There would be nothing else on TV. Because Donald Trump is the only guy that has the guts and is willing to stand up to these clowns. Every other Republican -- there's plenty of them totally fine with all of this. Because either they see it as a window for their political future -- well, you know, Donald Trump is not in the way. Maybe there's a chance for my Milquetoast personalities to ascend to the highest levels of the Republican Party and serve the Democrats dutifully. Because that's what it seems like at it this point. So, you know, all of these facets are designed to intimidate, especially Donald Trump, and anybody else who has the guts to speak out against these people. But what's nice, like all the things they've done lately, it's gone so far. So much of the American public, who have been politically agnostic, who have been quit, who have been silent.
Like, they're watching this stuff. And they can't believe -- I have Democrats. You know, don't forget, I was pro-New York. Even as a lifelong conservative. I was from New York.
I have plenty of Democrat friends that are like, holy crap. What's going on in our government? If this was going on in a banana republic, you know, the warmonger in government, they would be starting a war to overthrow those governments.
GLENN: I will tell you -- I will tell you that when I heard, that they were going after your dad for espionage, I -- I -- I -- my -- I really thought, I have finally entered, you know, the Alison wonderland, upside down. You're a father with espionage?
DON: Russia. Russia. Russia. Part 29. Give me a break. He had the nuclear codes. He probably stole the nuclear phenomenal. And, you know, he's giving those things to -- when does it end? Maybe we would be better off if Donald Trump still had the nuclear football. Because at least our enemies respect him, unlike the laughing stock that's currently occupying the White House. Which is, frankly, you know, his personality and his idiocy is only encouraging our enemies. But, you know, when does it stop? Does it ever -- it's only making me more -- more inclined to be more aggressive. Speak out further. I probably already am rather aggressive. Because this stuff can't happen in America. And for our media to sit idly by. Spread the propaganda. You see what they do every time. Something happens. They lose control of the narrative. They leak to their usual suspects. I want to know, are the FBI agents involved in this one the same ones that were looking into Hillary and the laptop, and the taking of hammers to blackberries and Anthony Weiner. And the top secret stuff that was supposedly on his laptop. Because I wonder, do they have a team -- just a corrupt team that they use to do all these things. Because one has to wonder all these things. Because this just can't be coincidence at this point. I went through great lengths, Glenn, as you noticed. To sort of make the distinction towards these bureaucrats of the FBI. These guys who are lawyers, they never carried a gun. They wouldn't know what to do with one if they did. It would weaponize that formerly great institution. You know, and the door kickers, who come up to me all the time. And they're disgraceful in their organization. Or the retired guys especially. Because they're a little more inclined to be vocal about it. But the regular guys don't start speaking up. Don't start functioning as whistle-blowers.
If they're whistle-blowers for the left. So if you're a whistle-blower for the right, you'll lose your job. Somebody has to start saying something. Because it's getting much harder to defend. Even the rank and file at this point. Who, again, don't seem to be stopping anything.
They've had on the radar every terrorist -- every psychopath in America. They've been on their radar, yet they managed to slip through and kill people all over America. But they certainly had plenty of time weaponize a BS argument against Donald Trump. And do so, ad nauseam.
GLENN: I will tell you, I have a bazillion questions I could ask you. But I'm just about to run out of time, because I know you're a busy man. So let me -- let me go here.
First of all, there are, I think, 13 or 14 whistle-blowers, which is a really good sign. We need many, many more, but there are whistle-blowers, in the FBI. So they haven't killed it yet. Although, it is on that road.
The New York Times, for some reason, decided to report that your father reached out to Garland. And asked how he could help reduce the heat to calm everybody down. I thought that was a great move.
Yesterday, he came out and said, look, the temperature is getting to a boiling point here. You know, I'll do anything I can, to reduce the temperature.
We are in deep trouble. And I think they are doing this, because they can't find the extremists. They want to make people extremists. And just keep poking them over and over and over again.
DON: Yeah. Well, listen, it certainly sounds likable that. You saw what they did with those meth heads in Michigan. Where they tried to trap a bunch of lunatics. To try to create the assassination plot, rescue Whitmer. Oh, they ran with that right before the election like it's real. You know, the three white supremacists left in America. And they found them all. And they're going to -- give me a break. These are the same clowns that think, that's the greatest threat to American democracy in America. Like, where? What are you talking about?
GLENN: I know. So I want to ask you this. I want you to leave us, if you can, with some hope.
What is it that the American people should be doing? They are paying attention. They are calling their senators and congressmen, and are not speaking out. I think Congress and the Senate needs to be very clear on this. But what is your message or your father's message to the American people who are like, I can't take it anymore.
DON: Listen, I think we have to stay in the game. I think it's very purposefully a war of attrition on the other side. If they can intimidate you enough. If they can make you create enough fear. And they have certainly done that. And I can understand why.
But I think -- so much rests on us not letting this just fly. If they do this now, and they try to weaponize it, to prevent Trump from running. Which is clearly what they're doing. They exercise an incredibly broad search warrant. They take picture books, even. Anything they can do, to try to hurt Trump. They don't want his lawyers present.
Because if I'm doing a search warrant, I want the lawyers present, so that there's never anything above -- then when you question why would they do that? How dare you question it.
I don't know. I've been looking at the FBI for the last five or six years. It doesn't seem like they do anything aboveboard lately. Right? I mean, they don't get in trouble for doing the things. They get caught manufacturing things. All these signatures. Lying. Whatever it may be. And we're supposed to believe it's a credible organization. You know, I think we have to actually be engaged in this profit. I think we cannot let it fly. We cannot just say, okay. Well, let's just maybe put a Milquetoast Republican in there. Because that will calm things down. No. That gives them the win. That gives them everything they want. Because nothing will ever be done to prevent this from happening again. I think what you need honestly, you need a Donald Trump in there. And you need to actually drain the swamp. You have to fire the bureaucrats. And you need someone who has the guts to actually do that. I think --
GLENN: Right. But we are not beyond. We are not to the point where we are beyond the ballot box, are we?
DON: You know, I think we have to be at the point where we overwhelm the ballot box. We overwhelm the games that are being played. You saw what happened yesterday, in the -- the recall. You know, the signature ballot recall from George Gaston, you know.
The Democrats in charge, they threw out 30 percent of the signatures. Who I'm sure, people, you know, they're watching what's going on in crime-ridden California. And I'm sure they were real. And really signing off. But it's a 750,000 signatures.
They canceled about 30 percent of them. Said, oh. Now you didn't -- 30 percent. But they want you to believe that the 2020 election. That less than 1 percent of the signatures of these random ballots going out to people, and dozens -- and various -- all over the country. They want you to say, less than 1 percent are faulty. But more than 25. Almost 30 percent of the ones in the California recall election were faulty. That doesn't work. It's not like a sample size of three. It's a sample size of three-quarters of a million people. That was 30 percent. Over 100 million people, it was less than 1 percent. Give me -- we have to overwhelm him. We have to get in there. We have to do everything we can, to save our country, and, you know, the republic. Because it is at stake. And it is on the ballot.
GLENN: Donald Trump Jr. Thank you, sir.
My best to your family and to your father. We are praying for him and you. And the rest of the family. Thank you so much. God bless.
DON: We really appreciate it. Thank you so much, guys.
GLENN: You bet. Buh-bye.
