1. President Trump
Even in Trump's age, when we have become accustomed to hearing incredible things, it was a runner. The president, in an Oval Office interview with ABC News, George Stephanopoulos, said he would listen to a foreign government if it came to him with dirt on a political opponent. "I think you might want to listen," Trump said. "There is nothing wrong with listening." Remember, the president has consistently played Russian efforts to interfere in the 2016 competition and doubts the US agencies' assessments of it. Trump's statement also contradicts FBI director Christopher Wray's comment during his confirmation hearings that politicians and their operators should report to FBI attempts by foreign governments to interfere with US elections. Trump told ABC: "The FBI director is wrong."
Democrats pounced on the president's statements, which were several talks from the party for persecution. "This is criminal. It's criminal. And we have to hold this president accountable," said US Rep. Brenda Lawrence to CNN's Erin Burnett. The ever-growing gaggle of democratic presidential candidates also joined US later Kamala Harris, who called Trump "a national security threat." CNN's Stephen Collinson said that Trump's words risk the integrity of the 2020 vote and may even open the election to disturbances from foreign spies. Republicans were largely silent.
