TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): So, I think that the president has the unilateral authority to declassify documents. Do you think that it would be a good idea in this case?

DONALD TRUMP JR.: I think it'd be a phenomenal idea. You know, I'm not aware of what that is, I don't communicate with him about these sorts of things.

CARLSON: Right.

TRUMP JR.: You know, but -- they've certainly gone after him, they've certainly gone after me, our whole family.

[...]

CARLSON: Well certainly I think we would all benefit from seeing what's in this memo, for sure. Do you believe that your campaign was spied on by agencies overseen by the Obama White House during the campaign?

TRUMP JR.: Listen, what I have seen, and what I have learned over the last few months is bordering on disgusting, so there would be little doubt in my mind that it'd be possible. But this isn't the America I thought would happen, I mean, this is the stuff that you read about from banana republics.
