Eric Trump took some verbal shots at Justice Department special counsel Jack Smith on Monday for actions he reportedly took as part of his probe into former President Donald Trump.

Eric Trump, during an appearance on Newsmax TV with guest host Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), said that Smith went through his little brother Barron’s “underwear drawer” and “everything else you could possible imagine.”

“They are doing anything they can to take down my father,” said Trump. “Everybody forgets that Jack Smith’s wife was the one who did the Michelle Obama documentary.”

“I mean, isn’t it really convenient that she’s team Michelle Obama and happens to be the person that’s going after Donald Trump when, in a Harvard Harris poll this morning, my father’s leading Biden by five points, and I actually think it’s probably far higher than that,” Eric Trump said.

“But he’s clearly the frontrunner for the Republican Party by, you know, forty or fifty points over the next nearest rival. DeSantis is fading quickly. He’s beating Biden in every single poll on a national level,” he added.

Referencing his 17-year-old brother, Eric Trump said he fount it “really interesting” that the man whose wife “produced a Michelle Obama documentary happens to be the guy who is rabidly going after my father, as you said, misusing statutes, and raiding his home at Mar-a-Lago, and you know, going through Barron’s underwear drawer and, you know, everything else you could possibly imagine.”

“It’s disgraceful, and honestly, I am fearful for this country, Matt, because it’s— our country can’t last this way. They’ve lost so much confidence of the American people. The FBI’s not respected the way it was before, and it’s so sad to say that because it used to be a great institution,” he added.

Last year following the FBI’s unprecedented raid of his Mar-a-Lago estate as part of the bureau’s investigation into alleged mishandling of classified documents, the former president said Barron’s room had been searched and that agents also “rifled through” former first lady Melania Trump’s unmentionables as well.

“They rifled through the first lady’s closet drawers and everything else,” Donald Trump said. “And even did a deep and ugly search of the room of my 16-year-old son — leaving everything they touched in far different condition than it was when they started. Can you believe it?”

Several Republicans blasted the FBI and Justice Department shortly after the raid for taking such drastic action against a former president who happens to be Joe Biden’s chief political rival.

According to Fox News, the raid “was in connection with materials that Trump took with him from his time as president.” The outlet quoted other sources who said the “National Archives and Records Administration referred the case to the Justice Department,” and agents “recovered 15 boxes of classified materials from” Trump’s estate, the outlet continued.

Bongino was furious.

“This is some third-world bullshit right here,” Bongino said. “Let me say it again, third-world bullshit. I mean every word of that. I don’t care that it’s cable news.

“I was a federal agent, I raised my right hand. And I swore to protect and defend the constitution of the United States. And I love this country. This is a freaking disgrace. A disgrace. We don’t live in Cuba. We don’t live under Kim Jong Un” of North Korea, he continued.

“We live in a constitutional republic. A representative democracy. You have a bunch of FBI agents raiding the home of a former president because they don’t like his politics? Are you kidding me?” he added.

“This is some third-world garbage that happened tonight,” he continued.

Following the raid, Trump said that it was political in nature and meant to keep him from running again in 2024.
