Former special counsel Robert Mueller dropped the hammer on Donald Trump on Wednesday when he claimed that accepting foreign help to win an election “should be and can be a crime.”
Under questioning from Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT), Mueller was asked if it is illegal to accept “dirt” from a foreign country like Russia.
“We have an election coming up in 2020, director,” Himes noted. “If a campaign receives an offer of dirt from a foreign individual or a government, generally speaking, should that campaign report those contacts?”
“Should be and can be depending on the circumstances a crime,” Mueller warned.
This plays part in Trump’s 2016 campaign when his son, Donald Trump Jr., attempted to get dirt on Hillary Clinton from Russia.
