Trump Tries To Clean Up Foreign Dirt Comments

Hope Hicks Resigns

McEnany, however, said the "outrage" over the president's openness to foreign information is "ironic", claiming that Democrats have been receptive to foreign dirt on rivals. They have information, I think I'd take it.

Sen. Marsha Blackburn, Tennessee Republican, objected, derailing the effort. If the media's outraged over--you might want to listen and then report it to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, why are they not outraged about Hillary paying for Russian lies, disinformation, Comey generously using the unverifiable data from Russia to spy on the Trump campaign and get a FISA warrant... "Who wouldn't? Probably if I were running in her position, I'd make the same statement".

Mr. Warner said his bill didn't cover mere conversations, but only required reporting for offers of illegal help. "What the president said last night shows clearly, once again, over and over again, that he does not know the difference between right and wrong", said US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the top Democrat in Congress.

"For a president to invite foreign powers to offer political candidates stolen information about his opponents is disgraceful", said Malinowski, a former assistant USA secretary of state.

Sen. Mitt Romney said that it was unthinkable that any presidential candidate would accept and encourage foreign interference. "It is never appropriate to allow a foreign government or its agents to interfere in our election process. I don't want to send a signal to encourage this". He denied the suggestion that that would amount to foreign meddling in United States polls. "The President has given Russian Federation the green light to interfere in the 2020 election", Warner wrote on Twitter earlier. "If bad, I'll call the FBI", Hannity said. Democratic presidential candidates who renewed calls for Trump's impeachment included US Senators Elizabeth Warren and Kirsten Gillibrand and US Representative Eric Swalwell.

Trump's comments came just hours after Rep. Tom Malinowski, D-7th Dist., introduced legislation requiring campaign committees to tell the Justice Department if they are approached by foreign powers, the same way banks must file suspicious activity reports.

"He's on tape, a senior member of Congress, more than happy to take a call from an unverified Russian opp in order to source out embarrassing material to impact the election of Donald Trump". An FBI counterintelligence investigation of Russian election activities in the 2016 presidential election sparked Mueller's probe, which confirmed U.S. intelligence agencies' findings that Russia worked to help Trump win.
