REPORT: GOP Congressman: Trump got the Left to care about foreign intelligence in elections


Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., said President Trump’s comment about being willing to accept foreign opposition research in the 2020 presidential election was a successful way to get the Left to care about foreign intelligence being used by campaigns.

In a tweet on Friday the House Freedom Caucus chairman compared the Democrats’ troubled reaction to Trump’s remark to their dismissal of the Steele dossier.

The article goes on to state the following:

“This week President Trump was able to do something no one else could: get the left to care about foreign intel in our elections,” the North Carolina Republican said. “You’d think Democrats paying for oppo research from Russians, then funneling it to DOJ to open an investigation, would’ve done the trick. Guess not.”

The dossier contained unverified claims about Trump’s ties to Russia and was used extensively in the FBI’s Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act applications targeting former Trump campaign associate Carter Page. It was compiled by British ex-spy Christopher Steele, whose work for opposition research firm Fusion GPS was funded by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee.
