Former CIA Official Suggests Trump Campaign Team May Have 'Welcomed' Russian Election Interference
Former CIA and U.S. Defense Department official Jeremy Bash told MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace that President Trump's actions after being cautioned by the FBI about Russia raise serious red flags.
Bash specifically noted that the Trump team's lack of interest in informing the FBI about a Trump Tower meeting with Russians following the bureau's alert is suspicious.
“I think the fact that the campaign, the candidate was warned and that the candidate and the campaign did not then go back to the FBI after the Trump Tower meeting is a huge red flag, that not only were they unconcerned with this Russian overture, but they welcomed it and in some ways want to conceal it,” he said.
“To have warned the FBI would have been to expose their own conduct, the campaign’s own conduct, and that is something that Bob Mueller will be very, very interested in.”
