Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah), a member of the House Intelligence Committee, defended President Trump saying he would not immediately call the FBI if a foreign power gave him dirt on a political opponent, saying an ally may provide valuable information.
“For example, one of our close allies, the U.K., Australia, a number of others, and they may have information that’s valuable,” Stewart told CNN Saturday.
The article goes on to state the following:
“There might be valuable information that comes from one of our allies. If they look at it and it’s credible, I think we’d be foolish not to take that information.”
Trump raised eyebrows this week when he told ABC News he would listen if a foreign power gave him opposition research on his eventual 2020 opponent and would not immediately call the FBI.
“I think you might want to listen. There’s nothing wrong with listening,” Trump said. “It’s not an interference. They have information. I think I’d take it. If I thought there was something wrong, I’d go maybe to the FBI.”
