Trump says "of course" he'd report damaging information to the Federal Bureau of Investigation

Trump says

"I think it's a mistake", said Graham, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Real Clear Politics reporter Philip Wegmann says he believes President Trump is trying to defend his son by making it seem like it is OK to accept foreign opposition research. The dossier contained 103 key allegations, none of which were were verified by special counsel Robert Mueller's 22-month investigation.

When the ABC anchor referred to the FBI director telling Congress his agency should be made aware of any such foreign election meddling, Mr Trump said: "The FBI director is wrong".

Trump, in an interview Friday with "Fox & Friends", said he would look at the information in order to determine whether or not it was "incorrect". "If somebody called from a country, Norway, [and said] "We have information on your opponent"-oh, I think I'd want to hear it".

McGahn described how Trump directed him to press the Justice Department for Mueller to be fired by insisting that he raise what the president perceived as the special counsel's conflicts of interest. "I never suggested firing Mueller", Trump said.

Trump defended his remarks in a series of tweets following his ABC interview.

Even several of the president's fellow Republicans spoke out against his remarks to ABC.

Senate Democrats failed on Thursday to ram through legislation requiring USA presidential campaigns to report to the Federal Bureau of Investigation offers of help from an agent of a foreign government.

Trump was "dead wrong", Biden said. Senator Mark Warner, who pushed the legislation, recalled Trump's "Russia, if you are listening" call for Moscow to dig up Clinton's missing emails during the 2016 campaign. "If you look at what happened, Hillary Clinton with the money that ultimately went to Russian Federation for the fake dossier, the totally fake pile of stuff....and the amount of money that was paid, and was paid by Hillary Clinton and the DNC, and it went to Russian Federation, that's the criminal", Trump said during the interview. In the Trump Tower meeting incident, Donald Trump Jr. was told that meeting concerned information that could be damaging to the Clinton campaign and that was purportedly "part of Russian Federation and its government's support for Mr. Trump". The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee expressed alarm at Trump's comments.
