The Hill reports:
Retired Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster, who was ousted as President Trump’s national security adviser in 2018, said Thursday “it’s absolutely not” appropriate to solicit foreign interference in U.S. elections.
“It just didn’t happen when I was there or in any conversation that I was privy to and part of, which was I think almost all the, really all the head of state calls,” he added. But when asked generally if it is appropriate to solicit foreign interference in the political process, McMaster replied, “Of course, no. No, it’s absolutely not.”
“Of course what has to happen here is seeing our democracy play out, the separation of powers play out, and for the American people, through their representatives and their representatives in Congress, as to make a judgment as to whether or not that happened,” he added.
