Eric Trump dismissed fears he could be indicted and insisted he has led a 'clean life' after the Trump Organization was charged in a 15-count indictment.

The son of the former president, 37, was asked if he was concerned if an indictment was coming his way after prosecutors brought tax fraud charges against the Trump Organization and chief financial officer Allen Weisselberg. 

Speaking to Newsmax's Eric Bolling on Thursday, Eric dismissed these fears and insisted that he and his siblings Donald Jr, 43, and Ivanka, 39, have always led 'amazingly clean' lives.

Eric, who is the executive vice president of the Trump Organization, said: 'You know what? I'm not, Eric, because guess what, we've always lived amazingly clean lives.

'And believe me, if they could've, they already would've, right? I mean, that's what they wanted, that was their end goal.' 

He went on to blast Joe Biden's son Hunter, 51, referring to reports that the President might have inadvertently paid for a series of wild nights Hunter had with a prostitute at a Los Angeles hotel in 2018.

Eric also referred to reports that Hunter made a deal to sell his paintings for up to $500,000 to 'confidential' buyers, sparking concerns over bribery and potential money laundering. It came after his alleged corruption over prior business deals in Ukraine and China.

The businessman went on to say that, unlike President Joe Biden's children, he and his siblings entered the business world long before their father ever began politics and were 'very successful'. 

He continued: 'Don, Invanka and I live nice clean lives and we work very, very hard and guess what? 

'Long before politics ever came into our lives we were in the business world and we were successful, and we worked very hard and we lived clean lives.

'It's very different from the Bidens who were never in business until their father got into politics. And they milked it for everything it's worth and they still do it to this day.'

Meanwhile, Eric's wife Lara Trump told Fox News yesterday that the charges brought against the Trump Organization's chief financial officer Alan Weisselberg were 'disgraceful'.

She fumed: 'Let me be really clear with people: what we saw happen to Alan Weisselberg today was absolutely disgraceful. 

'Had this happened to anyone else, we are talking about five years of an investigation by Cy Vance [Jr.], the district attorney, we are talking about 3.5 million pages of documents because they are so desperate Dan to find anything on Donald Trump because they want to disqualify him from running for president in 2024.'

Allen Weisselberg, 73, appeared before a judge in New York on Thursday, charged with running a 15-year scheme to help its executives evade taxes by compensating them with $1.7 million in fringe benefits that were hidden from the authorities.

Prosecutors painted Weisselberg as a 'soldier' in the Trump Organization, having worked for the company ever since 1973, under Donald Trump's father Fred.

But Trump Jr, an executive vice president at The Trump Organization, told Fox News' Jesse Watters on Thursday that the charges against Weisselberg were akin to those pressed by the Russian president, Vladimir Putin.

'This is the political persecution of a political enemy,' he said. 

'This is what Vladimir Putin does. Just ask Navalny,' Trump Jr said referencing the dissident Alexei Navalny. 'That's what's happened in New York. It's the equivalent of Russia, Russia, Russia.

He added: 'After five years, three million documents, countless witnesses and hours of grand jury testimony and forensic auditors, this is what they come up with.'

'They're going to charge a guy who is 75 years old on crimes of avoiding taxes on fringe benefit. People in corporate America get a corporate card.'

'I'm sure you've paid taxes every time you've taken a car to or from work. It happens sometimes,' Trump Jr continued. 

'This is what - this is not what they promised the American public, but they have to do something.' 

The Trump Organization was also charged in a 15-count indictment, that included charges of conspiracy, grand larceny, tax fraud and falsifying business accounts. 

The maximum prison sentence is 15 years, but Weisselberg would likely get less, if any time at all.

Assistant District Attorney Carey Dunne said: 'As spelled out in the indictment, this was a 15-year long tax fraud scheme.

'It was orchestrated by the most senior executives who were financially benefiting themselves and others.'  

Trump Jr said that they deliberately announced the charges on the Thursday of the July 4 weekend 'because it's nonsense'.

He added: 'But this is what they do to their enemies. No different than Putin.'

The indictment accused Weisselberg of failing to pay tax on two leased Mercedes-Benzes, a rent-free apartment, bonuses and about $360,000 in school fees paid for by the Trump Organization.

It also said that other, unnamed executives were given similar benefits and that Weisselberg orchestrated the scheme with 'others.'

Trump Jr accused the New York officials of attempting 'to destroy a man's life, his reputation', and said it was like living 'in a banana republic'.

He added: 'And in this is what they've got after all of that
