Donald Trump Jr. on Tuesday visited Fox News’ Sean Hannity to discuss revelations that he met with an emissary of the Russian government with the explicit purpose of obtaining compromising information on Hillary Clinton.
Trump Jr.’s visit to—as CNN’s Jake Tapper put it—“his father’s favorite channel” yielded as much hard-hitting news as one would expect. Trump’s eldest son “probably” would have done things differently, but he “can’t help what somebody sends” him in an email.
According to CNN’s Dylan Byers, in a preview for the interview, Hannity “goes after media for not caring about Hillary Clinton, Deep State.” He also, according to his preview, “ran out of questions” to ask Trump Jr., who’s currently embroiled in one of the biggest political scandals to date.
