Romney: "Unthinkable" for presidential candidate to accept dirt from foreign government

“Let’s distinguish between a foreign official making an off-hand comment at a dinner about the campaign versus a foreign government trying to influence an election. In the latter case, that would be unthinkable. It would be totally inappropriate and it would strike at the heart of our democracy,” Romney told reporters.

He added that it would “be wrong and unthinkable that any candidate for president would accept such information.”
