Charles Schumer: Senate must rebuke Trump foreign dirt comments

Sen. Charles E. Schumer says that if Republicans want to do something about President Trump’s new comments welcoming foreign meddling in the U.S. election, they’ll have a chance Thursday afternoon.

Mr. Schumer, the top Democrat in the chamber, said his party will ask for consent to speed to the floor a bill making it a requirement that anyone who gets election-related information from a foreign power report it to the FBI.

The bill, which has been floating about for months, got a new boost after Mr. Trump on Wednesday told ABC News that he would welcome dirt from a foreign government, and his immediate reaction wouldn’t be to rush to U.S. authorities to report it.

Mr. Schumer called that “undemocratic, un-American, disgraceful.”
