President Donald Trump early Thursday quoted daughter-in-law Lara Trump from her appearance on Fox News' "Hannity" program, where she defended him against the House Judiciary Committee's document requests from 81 people associated with the president and campaign, her own husband Eric included.
“'Democrats are frantic to throw something else at the president,'" Trump tweeted, quoting her comments to show host Sean Hannity. "'That’s why you saw those 81 subpoenas. It’s ridiculous. Just because your (SIC) still upset over an election that happened 2 1/2 years ago, you should not be allowed to ruin people’s lives like this.'"
Lara Trump, a senior campaign adviser for her father-in-law's re-election bid, told Hannity that the House Democrats' investigations into the president's possible criminal acts show how much they fear him.
"The campaign will be vindicated," she said. "The truth comes out at the end. And I think that Democrats right now are showing how scared they are with the fact that they view [special counsel Robert Mueller's] report is probably going to be released soon because they are frantic to find something else to throw at the president, to throwing anybody close to him."
She added that there is "full confidence" that "the right things happen because we know the president, the campaign, nobody's done anything wrong here."
