( - In reaction to President Donald Trump telling George Stephanopoulos of ABC News that he would listen to a Norwegian who claimed to have information on his opponent and might go to the FBI if he thought there was something wrong, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D.-Minn.) is calling for Trump's impeachment.

“One word: impeachment,” Omar said in a Tweet she sent out this afternoon that retweeted a Tweet from ABC News that included a videoclip of the exchange between Stephanopoulos and Trump.

Here is a transcript of part of that clip:

Stephanopoulos: “Your campaign this time around, if foreigners, if Russia, if China, if someone else, offers you information on your opponent, should they accept it or they should call the FBI?

Trump: “I think maybe you do both. I think you might want to listen. I don't think there's nothing wrong with listening. If somebody called from a country -- Norway -- we have information on your opponent, oh, I think I would want to hear it.

Stephanopoulos: “You want that kind of interference in our elections?

Trump: “It's not an interference. They have information. I think I'd take it, if I thought there was something wrong, I'd go maybe to the FBI.”
