🚨'I think I’d take it”—Trump says he’d take help from a foreign govt offering dirt on 2020 election opponents. This is an admission he was in 2016 & continues to be aligned w/ adversaries like Russia who criminally attack our country. abcn.ws/2WIvZef #ImpeachTrumpNOW‼️
‼️“I’ve never called the FBI in my whole life. That’s not what you do.” Trump says he wouldn’t even call FBI if Russia or any hostile foreign power called offering dirt.

Sorry. This isn’t “norm-busting.” This is a criminal screwing his country. #Maddow
‼️Trump is so lawless, he just openly admits collusion! Accepting help from Russia now is clearly willful & thus criminal. WORSE, he just INVITED Putin—who works to subvert democratic elections around the world—to subvert ours—AGAIN! And look at his pathetic excuses. JFC #Maddow
Trump basically just said his own "I love it" to Putin, which in 2016 helped launch Russia's election attack. Kremlin press is already noting key points: He'd take foreign dirt, and, not only would NOT alert the FBI, but criticized Director Wray.

Prison is too good for this guy.
“The moment you sit down to listen to a foreign power’s dirt, you are owned”—@FrankFigliuzzi1. YES! Look how the Trump Tower Meeting compromised them: B/c they took that mtg, they’re compelled to defend criminal conduct. Trump’s even admitting intent for future crimes🤯 #LastWord
@FrankFigliuzzi1 @TheLastWord @Lawrence Trump is admitting he will cooperate w/ Russia or any foreign adversary. If the (dis)information is useful, he’ll take it.

This is no hypothetical. Such cooperation (collusion) defined his 2016 election squeaker win. B/c he’s even more unpopular today, he NEEDS it again in 2020.
@FrankFigliuzzi1 @TheLastWord @Lawrence Repubs will defend Trump's stunning admission, broadcasting that he wants Russia's election interference AGAIN—w/ever more indefensible propaganda. They want to retain power—at literally ANY cost. It's why Barr paused & narrowly answered Q about reporting dirt/interference to FBI
🔥FEC Chair @EllenLWeintraub just confirmed it: Trump's astounding admission that he'd take election interference from Russia & other hostile foreign states sabotaging our democracy is—VERY—criminal. Aaand still criminal despite GOP whataboutism propaganda about Steele & Clinton.
@EllenLWeintraub ICYMI Desperate GOP attempts to gaslight Trump's astounding foreign collusion admission. Whataboutism propaganda by Graham, McCarthy et al distort key facts & terms: GOP hired Steele—a proven credible Russia expert—NOT a hostile foreign spy or Russian agent. Trump is a criminal.
We're just spinning in the circles of hell now: Under fire, Trump goes on Fox propaganda TV to clean up his mess admitting he'd take foreign dirt in 2020—as in 2016. But Criminal POTUS doubles down, says he'd LOOK at it THEN go to FBI—OR AG—IF info was "incorrect or badly stated"
Reports that Trump backtracked on foreign dirt are wrong. Listen to the Fox interview. He never commits to going to FBI. He says FBI—OR Atty General—IF the info is "bad." So he WILL LOOK at it, as if "looking" is not illegal "accepting." He's still welcoming foreign interference!
🔥Collusion on a case-by-case basis: Trump often buries his intent in contradictory blather. But 2020 campaign spokesperson (& familiar 2016 propagandist) Kayleigh McEnany spelled out the strategy pretty clearly y'day: Trump will take illegal foreign dirt on a case-by-case basis.
😈"Of course you have to look at it"—That's Trump's criminal mind at work, trying to distinguish LOOKING from ACCEPTING dirt. It's not! It's illegal. And it's foreign interference. AND he wants it! So used to lying & distorting, he thinks his propaganda doesn't stink, as it were.
There you have it. Lawless Trump has ZERO intention of going to the FBI to report foreign interference. Colluder-in-Chief just publicly thanked disgraceful GOP Senator @MarshaBlackburn for BLOCKING bill requiring him to report foreign help to the FBI.
