Here Are Five New Takeaways From Trump's ABC News Interview
ABC NewsBy the time ABC News aired its lengthy, wide-ranging, and extensive interview with President Trump on Sunday evening, many of the most headline-making moments had already been released by the network via excerpts.

Washington has already been rocked, for example, by the bombshell revelation that Trump was seemingly open to the idea of receiving dirt on his 2020 opponents from foreign entities and didn't think it was necessary to contact the FBI if approached.

But while we already knew heading into Sunday night that Trump wouldn't speak to Robert Mueller because he was concerned about lying, that he didn't fire Mueller because firings didn't "work out too well" for Richard Nixon, and that he believes former White House counsel Don McGahn lied to Mueller to make himself look good, there were still a number of eyebrow-raising tidbits from the full interview.

Pompeo: Fox News host's questioning Trump's FBI comments a ‘Washington piece of silliness'
When Fox News host Chris Wallace asked Pompeo Sunday if "accepting oppo research from a foreign government right or wrong?" the former CIA director responded: "Chris, you know, you asked me not to call any of your questions today ridiculous. "President Trump has been very clear that he will always make sure that he gets it right for the American people and I'm confident he'll do that here as well," Pompeo said. Trump in an interview last week with ABC's George Stephanopoulos said that he would take damaging information — which he referred to as "oppo research" instead of as interference in a U.S. election by foreign governments — and that he would do so without necessarily alerting the FBI.

House Dems Do What They Do Best After Trump Invites Foreign Election Interference: Shrug
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast / Photos GettyTo a person, Democratic lawmakers said on Thursday that President Donald Trump's stated comfort receiving election assistance from a foreign government was shocking, disqualifying, and even criminal. And then, they did what they've come to do best: shrug.

Inside the caucus, there was a sense of dejection the morning after ABC News released footage of an interview in which Trump said he would not reach out to the FBI if a foreign government tried to help his campaign. Members and aides admitted they have grown jaded and increasingly convinced that leadership will not move forward with an impeachment inquiry regardless of the ethically dubious and legally problematic steps the president takes.

"The Mueller report laid out in black and white the multitude of crimes created under the Trump regime," said an aide to a Democratic member. "That was more than enough evidence to move forward with impeachment. So if that did not suffice for Pelosi, I don't know what will."
