Rep. Sean Duffy came out defending Donald Jr. this week for his meeting with Russian officials during the election, saying that meeting people who may have information for you is “not a crime”.

“I don’t have an issue with it,” Duffy said on CNN. “There’s nothing wrong with that. That’s not a crime.”

“I have no problems with what Donald Jr. did, and I don’t think any prosecutor would either,” added Duffy, a vocal supporter of the Trump administration.

As written for by Pete Kasperwicz:

Duffy also dismissed Democratic complaints about the meeting by saying that while President Obama was in office, Democrats didn’t seem to have any problems with Russia.

“The ones who have loved the Russians have been the Democrats,” he said. “And to now say when Obama was there they were great friends of ours but now that Trump’s there they’re now a hostile state…”

Duffy admitted Russia is “no friend to the U.S.,” and said if he were offered a meeting with the Russians, he might have someone else take that meeting.

“But I don’t think it’s a bad act on the part of Donald Jr. at all,” he said.
