The so-called President told George Stephanopoulos he would happily take “dirt” on a political opponent from a foreign government and not tell the FBI about it. In other words, he’s not guilty of collusion … yet.
To review: while the president of the United States is openly saying he would accept foreign election help again:
– His attorney general is investigating the CIA for daring to investigate Russia’s attack on the 2016 election, and,
– Democrats held a Watergate nostalgia hearing.

Your government at work, folks.
In defending himself, the “president” declared he is allowed to speak to foreign governments. “I meet and talk to foreign governments every day,” he tweeted. In fact, he had just met with the Queen of England and the Prince of Whales. Understandable hilarity ensued. But the distinction between being an international embarrassment during a state visit and being used by a foreign government to influence a U.S. election eludes him.
