House Speaker Nancy Pelosi attcked President Trump in her weekly press conference Thursday morning, asserting that he "does not know right from wrong" after Trump said in an interview with ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos that he would be willing to listen to foreign intelligence on political opponents.
“Your campaign this time around,” Stephanopoulos said, “if foreigners, if Russia, if China, if someone else offers you information on opponents, should they accept it or should they call the FBI?”
“I think maybe you do both,” Trump replied. “I think you might want to listen, there isn’t anything wrong with listening. If somebody called from a country—Norway—[and said], ‘We have information on your opponent,’ oh, I think I’d want to hear it.”
Pelosi told reporters that Mr. Trump's "cavalier" attitude towards listening to election dirt was an "assault on our democracy."
"It's a very sad thing that he does not know right from wrong," Pelosi said. "It's so against any sense of decency."
WIBC host Tony Katz:
"The President is giving a very honest answer in saying that he would listen and if there was a problem he would call the FBI. But let's not say this isn't being done; it's being done everywhere.
There was an entirety of an investigation that concluded the President didn't collude with foreign governments. You don't have to like what the President had to say, but I will not sit idly by while Nancy Pelosi plays the role of being virtuous. She doesn't get to take that position - not on this. Almost not ever."
