North Carolina Senator Thom Tillis, Republican member of the Senate Armed Services and Judiciary Committees, commented on US President Donald Trump’s statement that he would accept damaging information on his rivals in the 2020 election from a foreign country.
Tillis said that those criticizing President Trump and his views should look into the origins of the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into Trump campaign back in 2016.
“You have to listen to the entire discussion, where the president said if he felt something was wrong, he would reach out to the authorities, so I’ll leave it up to the president to use good judgment,” Tillis said. “But I also think that up here on Capitol Hill reporters today are conveniently not going back and talking about GPS Fusion working on behalf of the Clinton campaign, paying a former foreign agent to get information from foreign governments to use against president Trump,” he added referring to a dossier, compiled by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele.
“President Trump said something that has gotten people’s attention. The Clinton campaign did something that’s being conveniently left out of the dialogue.”
Tillis has also noted that it’s “hard to believe” that Clinton Campaign officials did not know how GPS Fusion obtained the dossier.
