Dan Crenshaw: Trump Asked Ukraine About Biden In The Public Interest

|

In an interview Monday with CNN's Chris Cuomo, Rep. Dan Crenshaw disputed the premise that President Trump did anything wrong during his call with the president of Ukraine.

"I’m not sure I agree with the premise that he’s done something wrong," Crenshaw said, "I understand that there’s a theory about wrongdoing, but the facts do not back that up."





"You don’t think he asked a foreign power to help him with a political opponent?" Cuomo asked.

Crenshaw replied; "See there's a part to that question that departs from the facts that we have, which is the political side of it. We have the transcript. We can pretend that the military officer coming to testify [Tuesday] is a big bombshell, but the reality is we already have the transcript. We know he mentioned Biden. Now, why would that be? The question we have to ask is, is the president mentioning it because there is some public interest? I would argue in this case, there might be, because our former vice president had a major conflict of interest with his son being on the board of a company that was being prosecuted by someone who the vice president was trying to get fired. So there's a clear conflict of interest."
