Last week in an interview Trump opening and willingly declared he would be willing to take negative information about his political opponents from foreign countries, in violation of our FEC election laws.
When the interviewer reminded Trump that the FBI Director has stated that accepting foreign intelligence on political opponents is a violation of federal law, Trump replied that the FBI director is wrong. 🧐 That statement was FALSE!
That FALSE statement prompted the Federal Election Chair to issue her own statement backing the FBI Directors statement on foreign collusion on US elections being against the law:
This puts us into historical uncharted waters. Have we ever had a president so openly and deliberately flout US law to the point of rebuking the FBI director for having dared to state the TRUTH about foreign collusion being against the law???
What makes this so incredibly bizarre is that through the Mueller Investigation, Trump has proclaimed that he didn’t and would never collude with a foreign power. Now he’s openly admitting he’s fine with it???😲
Out of all the things Trump has done that has made the news, this one stands out by a long shot. The President of the United States is saying it’s okay to break federal laws and undermine American independence by accepting foreign help to win elections! 🤯 For ardent Trump supporters who don’t care, would you feel the same way if a Dem president did this. Think about how you would feel if Obama made such a statement?!? Hillary got the “Lock her up!” chant for being sloppy with security on her private email server, but now we have a President embracing breaking the law!
