Eric Trump appeared on "Hannity" Monday night and spoke about the corruption in Washington, saying the nation’s capital is “absolutely” more corrupt than people think.

“Do I think Washington is a lot more corrupt than most Americans think? Absolutely. No question about it,” he said on the show.

“We gave uranium, the material we use to make nuclear weapons, to Russia. To Russia. I mean think about that,” he said. “And nothing gets done about it.”

He was speaking of a deal the State Department approved in 2010 that allowed Russia’s nuclear energy agency to buy a stake in a Canadian uranium company that has mines in the United States. 

The deal allowed Russia to have a stake in about 20 percent of the uranium production capabilities of the U.S., according to PolitiFact.

Eric Trump then spoke about about people in Washington “harping on one email that is total nonsense."

His brother Donald Trump Jr. came under fire last month when news broke that he attended a meeting with a Russian lawyer who promised dirt on then-Democratic nominee Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonMcConnell: Taliban could take over Afghanistan by 'the end of the year' Hillary Clinton: There must be a 'global reckoning' with disinformation Pelosi's archbishop calls for Communion to be withheld from public figures supporting abortion rights MORE during the 2016 presidential election.

Trump Jr. initially denied the meeting took place and then claimed the meeting was about Russian adoption policy, but he eventually tweeted out the email thread he used to coordinate the meeting that showed he was expecting damaging information on Clinton.

Eric Trump went on to point to the fact that Saudi Arabia gave money to the Clinton Foundation as further evidence that he believes there is corruption in Washington.

“It makes no sense,” he said. “It really actually speaks to the corruption in the city.”
