President Trump told two senior Russian officials in a 2017 Oval Office meeting that he was unconcerned about Moscow’s interference in the U.S. election because the United States did the same in other countries, an assertion that prompted alarmed White House officials to limit access to the remarks to an unusually small number of people, according to three former officials with knowledge of the matter.
White House officials were particularly distressed by Trump’s election remarks because it appeared the president was forgiving Russia for an attack that had been designed to help elect him, the three former officials said. Trump also seemed to invite Russia to interfere in other countries’ elections, they said.
H.R. McMaster, the president’s then-national security adviser, repeatedly told Trump that he could not trust the Russians, according to two former officials.
More information just came out of of the oval office meeting with the Russians. Apparently the President is ok with the Russians interfering in US elections, because we do it as well.
It would be nice if these memos were part of the impeachment inquiry as well.
