Media, Dems hyperventilate over Stephanopoulos interview

Media, Dems hyperventilate over Stephanopoulos interview

Get the smelling salts, call 911, contact the emergency medical technicians, the media including disgruntled Democrats on Capital Hill are in an acute state of shock after listening to President Trump acknowledging to Clinton crony George Stephanopoulos that he would certainly listen to a foreign country that perhaps had incriminating evidence on his political opponent.

The in-depth interview in the Oval Office on Wednesday by Democratic strategist and former communication director for former President Bill Clinton and currently a political correspondent for ABC News seemed to have caught the 58-year old journalist by surprise after the President candidly explained that opposition research is a common practice among competing campaigns.

Stephanopoulos seemed incredulous after the President said he wouldn’t necessarily call the FBI if a country came to his campaign saying they had opposition research on his candidate.

This immediately brought up the subject of Russian interference during the 2016 Presidential Election and whether his oldest son Trump Jr. should have gone to the FBI when he received an email from a Russian saying they had opposition research for the Trump campaign.

“Should he Trump Jr. have gone to the FBI when he received that email?” Stephanopoulos asked.

“Okay, let’s put yourself in a position. You’re a Congressman. Somebody comes up and says, ‘Hey, I have information on your opponent.’ Do you call the FBI?” Trump asked.

“If it’s coming from Russia you do,” Stephanopoulos replied.

“I’ve seen a lot of things in my life. I don’t think in my whole life I’ve ever called the FBI. In my whole life. You don’t call the FBI,” Trump explained. “You throw somebody out of your office, you do whatever you–”

Stephanopoulos apparently attempting to defend his position replied, “Al Gore got a stolen briefing book. He called the FBI.”

Trump retorts, “Well, that’s different. That’s a stolen briefing book. This isn’t stolen. This is somebody that said, ‘We have information on your opponent.’ Oh, let me call the FBI. Give me a break. Life doesn’t work that way.

Stephanopoulos still attempting to defend his position replies, “The FBI director says it should happen that way.”

Trump counters, “The FBI director is wrong!”

Here’s where Stephanopoulos decided to play hypotheticals with Trump.

“Your campaign this time around, if foreigners, if Russia, China, if someone else offers you information on opponents, should they accept it or should they call the FBI?” Stephanopoulos asked.

“I think maybe you do both. I think you might want to listen. There’s nothing wrong with listening,” Trump replied. “If somebody called from a country – Norway,  ‘we have information on your opponent.’ Oh. I think I’d want to hear it.”

“You want that kind of interference in our elections?” Stephanopoulos asked.

“It’s not interference. They have information. I think I’d take it. If I thought there was something wrong I’d go maybe to the FBI if I thought something was wrong,” Trump explained. “But when somebody comes up with oppo research, right. They come up with oppo research. ‘Oh, let’s call the FBI.’ The FBI doesn’t have enough agents to take care of it. But you go and talk honestly to congressmen, they’ll all do it. They always have. And that’s just the way it is. It’s called oppo research.”

It appears by the frenzied emails concerning the Presidents honest and forthright remarks, the media along with disgruntled House Democrats have gone ballistic.

It is shocking to hear the President say outright that he is willing to put himself indebt to a foreign power… not to mention the foreign interference in an American election part. https://t.co/xlQoELsTif

Donald Trump committed yet another act of treasonous betrayal of the USA by publicly welcoming interference in our democratic elections by our nation’s foreign adversaries. His comments were truly shameful, despicable and indefensible… except by other traitors.???? #TraitorTrump

From that interview with George, we found out why Trump’s lawyers didn’t want him testifying. Because that guy testifying would have put himself in jail. https://t.co/GpjCVAATq1

“Oops” least we forget, it was Hillary Clinton who actually purchased phony opposition research from a “foreign spy” directly provided by inaccurate information by Russian Intelligence, in order to frame President Trump.

    Of course, it’s A-OK if your campaign pays for the dirt, false or not.
