nearvideo President Trump says he may or may not report foreign opposition research to the FBI
Real Clear politics reporter Philip Wegmann says he believes that President Trump tries to defend his son by appearing to accept as it is in order, foreign opposition research.
President Trump on Monday refused to say whether he has confidence in the FBI Director, Christopher Wray, while the recognition of the two officials did not agree on some of the most important questions, including the question of whether the President was the campaign a victim of espionage.
In an interview, Trump was questioned on his level of confidence in the FBI boss.
“Well, we’ll see how it turns out,” he said to The hill, prior to the discussion on Wray’s earlier claim that he would not describe the word “espionage” to the Bureau’s monitoring of key performance indicators associated with the trump campaign in 2016.
President Trump refused to say he has confidence in the FBI-Christopher Wray, who has previously stated that he believes that the President is spying on the campaign.

When asked earlier this year if he believed that the Trump campaign was spied in 2016, Wray told lawmakers on the Senate appropriations Committee: “this is not the term I would use.
“A lot of people have different colloquialisms. I believe that the FBI is engaged in investigative activity, and a part of the investigative activity includes the monitoring of the activity in different shapes and sizes, and to me the important question is that of the book, which is consistent with our legal authorities.”
