Trump says he would listen if foreigners offered dirt on political opponent
President Trump on Wednesday wouldn't commit to calling the FBI if a foreign power offered damaging information on a political opponent.
The comments, in an interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos, came after special counsel Robert Mueller's report, released earlier this year, detailed numerous efforts by Russia to interfere in the 2016 election.
"I think maybe you do both," Trump said when asked whether he would call the FBI or listen if Russia, China or another foreign government reached out.
"I think you might want to listen. There’s nothing wrong with listening," he continued. "It’s not an interference. They have information. I think I’d take it. If I thought there was something wrong, I’d go maybe to the FBI."
Stephanopoulos noted that FBI Director Christopher Wray has said campaigns should reach out to the bureau if they are contacted by a foreign entity.
"The FBI director is wrong," Trump said.
ROFL, WHAT THE F****!
I can't wait to hear the spin on this one.
