welcome back. president trump says that he would accept dirt on an election opponent from a foreign government during the 2020 >>election. rt of another very eventful week at the white rause. we have moder of "meet the press" chuck todd here to help us sort through all of it. and also about thera dem and republicans, house they are responding to the president'snt
commes. yeah. >> well, what's interesting is to watch the republicans walk the line of not criticizing the president and say i'd call the fbi, i'd never do this, this is stillllegal. democrats tried to bring more attention to the fact that they have been calling for, they have a few bills, mark warner here in virginia, house democrats haveo s elections security measures they have not be able to get the senate to take up. so democrats tried to get n attentior that. they have had an awful time trying to create political urgency around this election security issue. they thought that the president's comments would do that. he backtracked quickly. i think one of the reasons he om made the cnt is because his son was simultaneously testifying on capil hill that day about the infamous trump tower meeting. that's when he is asked the question i don't want to make it look like i think son did something wrong. then he backtracked. there is a possibility that was the version ofhy trump.
