Donald Trump may be telling on himself. During an Oval Office interview with ABC New’s George Stephanopoulos, Trump spoke on receiving information from a foreign government coming to him with dirt on a political opponent, saying, “I think you might want to listen. There isn’t anything wrong with listening.”
Needless to say, this was not the smartest answer he could have given. Especially since in the 2016 election, a foreign government has been accused of interfering. A incident he consistently downplayed.
Recently, FBI Director Christopher Wray said that politicians and their operatives should report attempts by foreign governments to interfere with U.S. elections to the FBI. Trump told ABC, “The FBI director is wrong.”
As you can guess, the Democrats are not happy people right now. They say these comments alone should bring up the impeachment conversation. “This is criminal. And we need ti hold this president accountable,” U.S. Rep. Brenda Lawrence told CNN. U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris called Trump a “national security threat.”
Lets see how this goes..
