"Fox & Friends" invites Trump to "clarify" his comments on accepting foreign dirt

At first, it seemed like Fox & Friends would be mounting a defense, with Steve Doocy observing that there’s “so much oppo research floating around Washington, D.C.” and “perhaps that’s what the president’s talking about,” Mediaite reports. Ainsley Earhardt also seemed to back the idea that Trump need not alert the FBI to an offer of foreign intelligence because they don’t “even have enough agents.”

But Brian Kilmeade wasn’t on this same page, chiming in to say that actually, “you don’t want a foreign government or a foreign entity giving you information because they’re going to want something back.” Kilmeade left open the possibility that Trump just misspoke, though, suggesting that he “knows” this and has “got to clarify that.”

“He opened himself wide up to attacks,” Kilmeade said, going on to politely ask everyone to “keep the other countries out” of American elections.
