After the whole Donald Trump Jr/Russian lawyer debacle, the Trump family has been under some serious scrutiny. People magazine indicates that the scandal has broken through to become relevant, so much that their latest cover broke the internet today with the headline “Trump Family: Secret & Lies.”
When Donald Trump Jr went on Fox News’ Hannity July 11 and said, “In retrospect, I probably would have done things a little differently,” some friends took notice.
“Those are not words normally heard from a Trump,” a source who knows the family well tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story.
Those who know and have studied Donald Trump Sr. and the grown children running his empire while he’s president—Don Jr., Ivanka and Eric—say the family is guided by their father’s creed of winning at all costs and never admitting mistakes.
For weeks now, the Trump administration and its supporters have been working diligently to dismiss the allegations as a distraction, but the People cover could prove to be a turning point and eve more evidence that the scandal’s gravity is being felt far beyond the field of political punditry. In other words, Russian collusion is a serious issue that needs to be addressed–instead it is being brushed under the rug like Trumpsters tend to do.
