Rep. Mike Quigley (D-IN) said that he believes President Trump had been “compromised” by the Russian government during a Monday interview on MSNBC.

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes asked Quigley about recent reporting by the New York Times, which claimed “that the FBI began investigating the president over allegations that he was acting as a Russian agent after Trump fired then-FBI Director James Comey.”

“I say this after watching it for over two years: I would tell the American public there are no coincidences,” Quigley said.

Quigley then attacked Trump for his ties to Deutsche Bank and for “slow-rolling” sanctions against Russia.

“There are no coincidences. I believe the president of the United States has been compromised,” Quigley said, adding that this needs to be the subject of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

Hayes pressed Quigley on what the word “compromised” meant to the Indiana Democrat.

“I believe that the Russians were the sole source of funds through Deutsche Bank. I can’t believe that there’s that coincidence. I believe that they were able to use that so that he relied upon them,” Quigley said.

Quigley added that Democrats would not know whether Trump was compromised until they see his financial disclosures.

“But it is certain that the president has acted like he’s compromised from the beginning of his campaign,” Quigley said.
