In comments reported by CNN, Trump Jr. slammed what he perceives as a bias within the FBI and the special counsel's office, which is conducting a probe into Russia’s election meddling and any potential ties between Trump campaign staff members and Moscow.


The president’s son, citing anti-Trump text messages sent by an FBI agent formerly working on the Russia probe, said “there'd be revolution in the streets” if this happened to former President Obama. 

"My father talked about a rigged system throughout the campaign, and people were like, 'Oh, what are you talking about?' But it is. And you're seeing it,” Trump Jr. told the Turning Point USA Student Action Summit, according to the news network.

“There is and there are people at the highest levels of government that don’t want to let America be America.”

The remarks from the president’s son come as conservative pundits and some Republican lawmakers have questioned the integrity of the special counsel’s investigation.

Those individuals have referenced anti-Trump text messages FBI agent Peter Strzok sent during the 2016 campaign. Strzok was reportedly removed from the Russia probe after the discovery of the messages.

Trump Jr. has met with the Senate and House Intelligence Committees, both of which are conducting their own Russia probes.
