Donald Trump, Jr posted a photo of the Judge’s daughter shortly before his father was charged with 34 counts of falsifying business records and conspiracy to undermine the 2016 election via a catch-and-kill scheme to mislead voters.
“Donald Trump Jr has tweeted a photo of the NY judge’s daughter. This contributes to the risk and threat picture and is an indicator of the threat strategy we’re likely to see moving forward,” retired FBI Assistant Director and NBC News National Security Analyst Frank Figliuzzi commented.
Trump’s son wrote on Twitter above a Breitbart story:

Manhattan DA Bragg’s statement claims the conspiracy was “a catch and kill scheme to boost election prospects and went to great lengths to hide it, including attempts to violate state and federal laws.”
