Democrats and their cohorts in the mainstream media are upset over an interview President Donald Trump did with George Stephanopoulos. The reason? Because Trump said he wouldn't necessarily call the FBI if a country came to his campaign saying they had opposition research on his candidate. He also brought up the fact that oppo research is a common thing in politics and that every politician utilizes it to win elections.
These are just a few of the many, many triggered liberals. And, naturally, they're running with the idea that this would be election meddling or election interference.
It is shocking to hear the President say outright that he is willing to put himself indebt to a foreign power... not to mention the foreign interference in an American election part. https://t.co/xlQoELsTif— (((Rep. Nadler))) (@RepJerryNadler) June 12, 2019
Donald Trump committed yet another act of treasonous betrayal of the USA by publicly welcoming interference in our democratic elections by our nation’s foreign adversaries. His comments were truly shameful, despicable and indefensible... except by other traitors.???? #TraitorTrump— Jon Cooper (@joncoopertweets) June 13, 2019
Trump committed "another act of treasonous betrayal?" Seriously? He's being put on trial for a hypothetical situation.
Republicans and Democrats should both speak out - loudly and strongly - against this.— Senator Chris Coons (@ChrisCoons) June 13, 2019
Foreign interference in our elections is unacceptable, period.https://t.co/mjfIgrVmXL
From that interview with George, we found out why Trump's lawyers didn't want him testifying. Because that guy testifying would have put himself in jail. https://t.co/GpjCVAATq1— Chris Matthews (@HardballChris) June 13, 2019
Remember 12 JUN 2019. Today was the day a sitting President announced he would accept clandestine help from a hostile power to stay in office.— John Schindler (@20committee) June 13, 2019
Translation for the cheap seats: Donald J. Trump, our 45th president, admitted that he is a traitor. On camera.https://t.co/C9hLDR4tcj
Trump’s interview with @GStephanopoulos crystallizes what’s at stake:— Ron Fournier (@ron_fournier) June 12, 2019
Unless Democrats and Republicans in Congress impeach him, every future president has grounds to ask foreign adversaries to launch covert operations against political rivals in the U.S. #existential
Why is impeachment always the answer?
He calls it “opposition research”— Richard W. Painter (@RWPUSA) June 13, 2019
The rest of us call it subversion and espionage.
He needs to be impeached NOW!

Republicans, have you really no shame?— Derek Cressman (@DerekCressman) June 13, 2019
Would it be ok if Joe Biden accepts embarrassing documents stolen from Trump by Mexico or Iran? Is that what we’re willing at accept as a nation? https://t.co/hzQKhntmbk
We're not talking about stolen documents. We're talking about someone willingly providing intel.
Trump’s belief that campaigns shouldn’t call the FBI if approached by a foreign government is about as unpopular a proposition as you can find in this country. https://t.co/lLiIpN5njX— Matthew Miller (@matthewamiller) June 13, 2019

They are just failing to do their constitutional duty. Every day they dither and dance around #impeachment, they're giving Trump license to trample the rule of law.
Trump tells @GStephanopoulos he sees nothing wrong with taking help from Russia, China and other hostile powers to help him win a second term.— David Cay Johnston (@DavidCayJ) June 13, 2019
We have a disloyal man in the Oval Office -- which I've been saying all along. Now we have clear proof.
Here's the thing: this was a hypothetical situation. It wasn't reality. It hasn't happened. It hasn't taken place. And Trump said what everyone would, realistically, do in that situation. We're human and curiosity gets the best of us. We'd want to know what the other people had.
