DNI Coats: I Wished Trump 'Had Made a Different Statement' in Helsinki, But 'That Has Been Clarified'
While speaking at the Aspen Security Forum on Thursday, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats stated he wished President Trump had “made a different statement” on Russian election interference in Helsinki, but that Trump’s statements have been clarified. Interviewer Andrea Mitchell asked, “[W]hen you watched that in Helsinki, what was your gut reaction watching him validate Vladimir Putin’s assessment over yours?” Coats said, “Well, my thoughts there were that I believed I needed to correct the record for that. And that this is the job I signed up for, and that was my responsibility. Obviously, I wished he had made a different statement, but I think that now that has been clarified, based on his late reactions to this. And so, I don’t think I want to go any further than that.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett

Thursday on his nationally syndicated radio show, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh argued the hype over Russian meddling in U.S. elections was an effort by the Democratic Party “to eventually get rid of elections.” Limbaugh said, “You realize as far as many Americans are concerned, every election going forward is not to be tainted depending on who wins and loses it. If the if the Democrats win, everything will be fine, you’ll never hear a word about tainted elections. In fact, the next time Democrats win the House or the Senate, pray tell the White House you’re probably going to hear one of two things: ‘Yeah the Russians were still trying to help the Republicans, we found out about it this time and we were able to overcome it and the Russians are going to be trying every election but we Democrats have found a way to beat them back. Vote for us, we can control the Russians, we’re not in bed with them,’ Blah blah. The other possibility is that if the Democrats won the election, that’s going to be, yet there won’t be any talk of the Russians meddling or colluding whatsoever. We won’t even hear a word about

Thursday on ABC’s “The View, ” co-host Whoopi Goldberg got into a heated exchange with Fox News host Jeanine Pirro. When Pirro said Goldberg had “Trump Derangement Syndrome,” Goldberg said, “Listen, I don’t have Trump derangement. Let me tell you what I have. I have a lot of — I’m tired of people starting a conversation with Mexicans are liars and rapists.” She continued, “Listen, I’m 62 years old. There have been a lot of people in office that I didn’t agree with. I have never, ever seen anything like this. I have never seen anybody whip up such hate. I have never seen anybody be so dismissive. And clearly you don’t watch the show. So, you don’t know that I don’t suffer from that. What I suffer from is the inability to figure out how to fix this. That’s my issue. But one of the things that you talk about a lot, and I’m curious about it is the deep state. How long has the deep state been there and who is running it?” Pirro said, “When you said in your opening statement, how horrible it is that Donald Trump is talking about all of these people.” Goldberg shot back,”I’m
