White House National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien seemed undisturbed by the idea of President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, being targeted by foreign efforts to meddle with the 2020 election.
CBS’ Paula Reid asked O’Brien, “Were you aware of concerns that the president’s personal attorney might be the target of a foreign influence campaign?”
“I think there are a lot of people in America that are targeted by foreign influence,” O’Brien replied. “There are a lot of folks that are trying to influence Americans so we’ve always got to be concerned about that. That’s something we’re concerned about across the board. I’m not going to get into any specifics on any specific politician.”
JUST IN: “A lot of people are targeted by foreign influence…” National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien would not answer whether WH knew President’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani was targeted by foreign influence campaign. @CBSNews pic.twitter.com/hj1h0ZmirM
