"Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump says he would listen if a foreign government approached him with damaging information about a political rival -- and wouldn't necessarily report the contact to the FBI.
"I think you might want to listen," Trump said in an interview with ABC News that aired on Wednesday. "There isn't anything wrong with listening."

It was a stark -- if not entirely surprising -- expression of nonchalance from the President over foreign efforts to influence US politics. Trump has consistently downplayed Russian efforts to interfere in the 2016 contest, and cast doubts on US intelligence agencies' assessments of the meddling.

It's a crime for a campaign to knowingly solicit or accept items of value from foreign nationals.

In the interview, though, Trump seemed to suggest rebuffing foreign governments would be unwarranted -- and unnecessary to report to federal law enforcement authorities.

That stance has put him at odds with national security professionals within his own administration. But Trump appeared unbothered by the discord in his interview, saying he would be open to any and all dirt on potential rivals.

"I think I'd want to hear it," Trump said, downplaying the idea such a move by another country would amount to election interference." (More)

I really don't understand how people vote for him. Imagine if Clinton or Obama said that yeah they want dirt from foreign governments? Fox news would actually explode into a fiery singularity.
