Speaking on "Fox & Friends," Trump Jr. praised the work of the Senate committee, which he described as bipartisan and fair, compared to the House committee, which he said was only interested in "soundbites."

"You walk out of a room after, what was it, 10 hours of interviewing and you didn't know who was on who's side. Meaning, those guys actually seemed like they were trying to get to facts."


"When I look at House Intel, when I look at these other groups, it was literally looking for a soundbite," he added. "You go in voluntarily, you go in under the auspices of confidentiality, you come out at 7:30 at night again after a 10 hour day, you look at your Twitter feed and starting at noon its 'CNN is reporting that.'"

"The Adam Schiffs of the world, presumably him because he never met a camera he didn't love, good thing is he's not that good on TV, but he's out there telling these people this," Trump Jr. said. "The following weekend, they're giving misleading information, leaking actual information but selectively leaking out and crossing out dates to make it seem and to try and create and perpetuate this scandal."

Republicans in the House closed the Intelligence Committee's investigation into Russian election interference on Monday, declaring that they had found no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Democrats were furious, countering that the committee's work was not done and accusing Republicans of sending a "green light" for Russia to interfere in future elections.
