Donald Trump Jr. compares Buzzfeed coverage to Catholic HS confrontation, says Schiff leaking

Donald Trump Jr., in an exclusive interview Monday night with Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle,” accused House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff of orchestrating a series of inaccurate leaks aiming to damage the White House, saying there is a “99.9 percent chance he’s the guy that was leaking my testimony as I was testifying” in 2017.

Trump Jr. also compared Thursday’s discredited BuzzFeed article, which alleged that President Trump directed Michael Cohen to lie to Congress, to the media coverage this weekend surrounding a widely documented encounter near the Lincoln Memorial involving several pro-Trump Catholic high school students, black activists shouting homophobic slurs, and a Native American man.

“You had some Catholic schoolboys that were at a right-to-life march, okay? They were wearing a MAGA hat,” Trump Jr. said. “They had to pounce because the media wants that to be true. They want a bunch of nice, Catholic kids — happen to be white — they want them to be the enemy.”

Many liberal and conservative commentators criticized the students — and, in some cases, called for them to be personally harassed and their school closed — based on initial, incomplete videos of the encounter, only to walk back their comments after a fuller video showed that the students themselves had been harassed, and that the students did not appear to approach the Native American man or the activists at any point.
