Democrats: Trump comments give green light to foreign election meddling

Trump Says He Would Take Political Intel from Foreign Power Rather Than Call FBI: WATCH

Trump team contacts with Russians during the 2016 presidential race led to special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into possible collusion and obstruction of justice.

"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. "I think you might want to listen, there isn't anything wrong with listening".

Fox News host Sean Hannity delivers an opening monologue on his June 13, 2019 show about President Donald Trump's comments regarding if he would notify the Federal Bureau of Investigation if offered information on political opponents which had been gathered by a foreign power.

In a recent interview with ABC News, Trump said, "Oh give me a break, she's running for President, she's doing horribly". Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) tweeted that Trump thinks "he is above the law", while Sen. Lindsey Graham of SC, one of the staunchest allies of the White House in Congress, called the president's assertions a "mistake".

How MPs turned down their latest chance to help avoid no deal
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn was overheard rebuking MPs, saying that they "won't be cheering in September" as they celebrated the defeat of the motion.

'I heard she made that statement, ' Trump said in regards to her remarks earlier this week.

"I meet and talk to "foreign governments" every day".

Hannity was referring to comments that Trump made during an interview with ABC News' George Stephanopoulos in the Oval Office.

'I don't want to see him impeached, I want to see him in prison, ' Pelosi reportedly told other members of Congress. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi tweeted that Trump is giving Russian Federation a "green light" to attack our election again. Legal experts say knowingly soliciting information from a foreign entity would also be illegal. "The president has either learned nothing in the last two years or picked up exactly the wrong lesson - that he can accept gleefully foreign assistance again and escape the punishment of the law", Representative Adam Schiff said. 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. Democratic presidential candidates who renewed calls for Trump's impeachment included US Senators Elizabeth Warren and Kirsten Gillibrand and US Representative Eric Swalwell. Now, he said he'd do it all over again. "Let's hope Congress has the will and time to make it clear to the Trump campaign that working with a foreign government to help you get elected is never an option".
