7:06 am
moren what theresident had to say and the reaction as well. peter, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. you're right. these were remarkable comments especially after an investigation that consumed nearly two years of donald trump's presidency focusing on that in 2016. the president he might not necessarily alert the fbi if foreign governments offered damaging information on his 2020 opponent suggesting he would pun his o political future ahead of the rule of law. president trump asked by abc news whether he'd accept information on his 2020 opponent from a foreign power or call the fbi. >> i think maybe you d both. i think you might want to listen. there's nothing wrong with listening. ifod someb call ed from country, norway, we have knformation on your opponent. oh. i 'd want to hear it. >> you want that kind of interference in our election?

7:09 am
has there been reaction yet and do we suspect there will be some fallout? >> reporter: strikingly, republicansave been silent. but democrats from the campaign trail, they condemned the commentser chuck schum calling them disgraceful. he tweeted, there's no wonder mitch mcconnell is blocking bipartisan eorts to secure our elections from foreign interference. i think the real question perhaps right now is what if anything, the the president's latest comments mean for the wider impeachment discussion. nancy pelosi has resisted calls within her partyeg to b impeachment proceedings. we are going to hear from her this morning. a weekly news conference. bu it's not clear that these comments from the president will change her calculus. >> peter alexander, thank you. there is his morning, growing reaction to the first sentencing connected to that widespread college admissions scandal. it wasn't what a lot of people were expecting from the judge.
