MSNBC contributor says ‘bipartsian commission’ needed to vet presidential candidates, stop another Trump from winning

‘We got this wrong and this can’t happen again’

An MSNBC contributor on Thursday called for a “bipartisan commission” to vet presidential candidates and prevent someone like President Donald Trump from winning the White House ever again.

NBC News National Security Contributor Frank Figliuzzi, the former assistant director of the FBI, said Trump’s tax returns as reported by the New York Times show he is “the most vulnerable president in our history” to compromise by foreign governments and is a national security threat. He believes the media and the 60 million people who voted for Trump in 2016 failed to properly vet him before he became president and the remedy is to have a bipartisan committee vet presidential candidates instead of the American people.

“He is the most vulnerable president in our history in terms of compromise and potential exposure to those who want to help him dig out of his financial pit in return for a price,” Figliuzzi said of Trump in a segment discussing the president’s tax returns.

Figliuzzi claimed the tax returns show how foreign governments could pressure Trump into making policy decisions that benefit their interests instead of the interests of the United States. He did not provide an example of a policy the president implemented that’s benefitted foreign governments and harmed the United States.
“There’s also another layer to this which is that when you’re this entangled with Russia and the former Soviet bloc you’re going to run smack into organized crime figures,” Figliuzzi added.

“So there’s too many gaps in the tax returns. There’s too many questions. Why is this president paying more to foreign nations in taxes than he is to the United States? How does he cover his debt? Who’s doing that for him? What’s the Deutsche Bank connection? Why are there so many golf courses losing so much money and why the continued purchase of those properties?”
