CNN is MELTING DOWN over what Trump just said to ABC news

OH boy, CNN and MSNBC is absolutely melting down over what el Trumpo said about maybe possibly probably being open to getting opposition research from China and Russia to help him in 2020.

Watch below:



I mean the thing is, he does say he probably would call the FBI. I think Stephanpoopolous was probably trying to get him to say that he would have called the FBI, so that he could go AHA why didn’t your people do it before? But as we all know, Trump doesn’t go for all that. He just said, eh, yeah I would do it!!

They’re going nuts:

Is it bad? Yeah, kinda. No one cares. Democrats will screech and howl for a few days, Republicans will pretend they never screeched and howled about the threat of Russia in 2012, and we all just move on….

The same parade of people who spent the past three years claiming collusion with Russia.

What’s really notable about this answer is the honesty of it. Yes, Trump would take such information. So would probably just about any other politician. It’s ugly, but it’s a fact of life. And it only becomes unethical if there’s a quid pro quo of some sort that actually crosses a criminal or unpatriotic line.

Most politicians asked such a question would simply lie about it. Trump was straightforward.

I don’t really see how someone who does it but lies about it is morally superior to someone who is straightforward about what he would do.

It’s all a set up so that when it comes out that’s exactly what Hillary Clinton did, the press will have already staked a political position and will look stupid (again) if/when they flip.

Exactly. This is all a case of looking for a mote in Trump’s eye while ignoring the whole treasonous forest in their own. If what Trump said rises to impeachment then Hillary and a whole host of those who aided and abetted her should be put under the biggest maximum security prison we have. Of course, I’m wondering if that’s not the whole point in all the Dems screeching and moaning? I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see them trot out a stupid deal that says they won’t impeach Trump if no/few charges are brought against Hillary and the Clinton machine. It’s a way to get around Hillary being prosecuted as one of the worst treasonous politicians ever.

If the foreign entity got the information illegally then an American has the obligation to contact authorities.

If the information is legally obtained and not paid for then it comes down to whether or not it’s a campaign contribution.

We’ve all seen what happens to politicians when they break campaign rules…. absolutely nothing.

Obama did do it. So much corruption and CNN is aghast with words but not actions. At this point, I look at what Trump does – not says. (We’ve had 2-plus years of Trump rhetoric so I go by experience.) The point here is that if Obama had said it, it wouldn’t be an issue. These same members would somehow be giggling that Obama said what Trump says. (Oh, and Obama, et al are so sophisticated and ‘presidential’ cuz that’s what the country needs.)

Actually, I think he is just playing on a different level. He gives statements that allow the Media to take out of context so easily, but I think he does it on purpose since it always works out for him in the end.

Stephanpoopolous was probably trying to get him to say that he would have called the FBI, so that he could go AHA why didn’t your people do it before? I think you’re right. This is similar to the reason why Trump refused to admit that the Russians interfered with the 2016 election *at all*. In his mind, he’s avoiding the gotcha. Naturally, the Dems are going to go nuts while ignoring their obvious hypocrisy: * Obama telling Medvedev that he would have more flexibility after the election, in an obvious attempt to get Russian cooperation during the run-up to his re-election. * Hillary/DNC use of Christopher Steele who used Russian disinformation directly as oppo research provided to the media and to the Obama FBI that then used it to fraudulently obtain FISA warrants against the Trump campaign. * Adam Schiff was caught red-handed trying to get dirt on Trump from… Read more »

What he should do is surround himself with the BEST people who could do that opposition research for him. Oh wait…

The world isn’t going to end after he said this (it was stupid) but it sure seems like he fell into a trap. Why would he say that he would repeat what Hillary did in order to win – especially after rightly criticizing her for it? Trump has more than enough support to win outright. And the democrats are going to ruthlessly chew each other up and expose every nerve.

So what? Answering a hypothetical question without any substance is a giant nothing. Suggesting that Trump should be impeached for saying he would not necessarily turn over a conversation with a foreigner to the FBI is ludicrous! He speaks with foreign leaders daily and could not do his job otherwise! There has been no crime committed by listening to someone gossip about someone else, which is a whole lot different than knowingly buying fake “evidence,” lying to the FISA courts to obtain bogus warrants, then spying on and indicting the political opponent who beat your choice for POTUS, as the obama/clinton cabal did! First, the DNC cheated Bernie Sanders out of the Democrat primary, then they tried to overthrow a duly elected sitting President of the United States! Now, THAT IS THE CRIME; why aren’t any real criminals connected to this attempted coup in prison yet?!

Considering what we’ve learned about a hostile element within the FBI, if Trump was offered opposition research from China and Russia on a Democrat candidate, I would be suspicious that the FBI was behind it.

Why are they saying it’s against the law to get information from a foreign government? Is it? Hillary should be prosecuted then.

Since when is talking to foreigners illegal? I really don’t get this.

I think Trump is not on the same page as the interviewer. He’s thinking regular dirt… the left seems to think the government is offering to throw the election? I don’t even know what they are thinking actually.

I find this troubling that something that has gone on forever is now illegal because people hate Trump.

So… the fact that Hillary bought information from Russia and it was false, not true, and caused chaos for two years over it… but Trump shouldn’t use real information? No one is even saying Hillary buying that information is a crime… although she did launder the money through a law firm so that might be a crime, but getting it seems to be completely legal.

I wonder if people think the question was that the opponent did something illegal and the FBI should know about it… or if it’s just regular campaign dirt?

I really don’t get it. Candidates get campaign dirt all the time from all kinds of sources.

I think they are changing the rules for Trump. Again.

Is this about reporting a crime? How is actual information from somewhere like say the UK a problem? If it’s true.
