Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, June 13, 2019

Donald Trump has said he would accept damaging information on his opponent during the 2020 election campaign, even if it came from a foreign government. In an interview with broadcaster ABC News, the president denied this would count as meddling in an election. "They have information - I think I'd take it," he said.

"Asked if he thought his son should have called the FBI when he received one such email in 2016, he said: "Give me a break, life doesn't work that way."

And remember, this was after the FBI had come to the campaigns to warn them of foreign influence.

Stephanapolis is guilty of the same crime every TV interviewer seems to commit: not ready for the answers, so no follow up questions. George never once brought up the FBI warning, nor did he confront Trump with the fact Donnie had just said he'd illegally conspire with a foreign government if he got the chance.

Translation: Crooks don't call the cops mid-crime; life doesn't work that way.

"Trump lied when he said he'd never spoken to the FBI -- he did it during a mob case

You don't call the FBI. You throw somebody out of your office, you do whatever you do," Trump said.

The reality is that Trump was doing business with the mob while running casinos, which earned him a chat from law enforcement.

In a Politico report from Pulitzer Prize-winning writer and Trump biographer David Cay Johnston, Trump was talking to the FBI as far back as 1980.

"FBI agents subpoenaed Trump in 1980 to ask about his dealing with John Cody, a Teamsters official described by law enforcement as a very close associate of the Gambino crime family,"

What a joke. The press calling people traitors, etc. Well, we know that Hillary DID do exactly that. We have Adam Schiff doing exactly that.

And worse, we know for a fact these activities DID influence the 2018 midterm elections.

So, until the media actual goes after the people that actually DID it - they have no credibility.

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

When @RepAdamSchiff took calls from another person, also very successfully purporting to be a Russian Operative, did he call the FBI, or even think to call the FBI? NO!

Adam Schiff @RepAdamSchiff

Adam Schiff Retweeted Donald J. Trump
Sorry, Mr. President, wrong again.

You eagerly took foreign help in the 2016 election and want it again.

When a foreign national offered info relevant to our investigation -- not election -- we informed the FBI before and after the call.

It's called ethics. You should try it.
