U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday blasted President Donald Trump’s comments saying that he would take assistance from a foreign entity ahead of the 2020 election but stopped short of saying they could trigger impeachment.

Pelosi joined a slew of Democratic lawmakers and a senior Republican in condemning the comments.

In a ABC television interview aired on Wednesday, Trump said he would listen if a foreign government or person offered damaging information about political opponents as he seeks re-election. He also said it would be “ridiculous” to report his foreign contacts to the FBI.
