Thomas Gallatin reminds everyone about the real act of using foreign oppo-research:
Remember: It was Hillary Clinton’s campaign that actually paid for foreign “dirt” on Trump.
“Somebody comes up and says, ‘Hey, I have information on your opponent.’ Do you call the FBI? … This is someone that said, ‘We have information on your opponent.’ Oh, let me call the FBI. Give me a break. Life doesn’t work that way,” President Donald Trump stated in an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos. Bill Clinton’s communications director-turned “journalist” was questioning whether Trump would immediately call the FBI should a foreigner offer information on his political opponent. Trump added, “I think maybe you do both. There’s nothing wrong with listening. If I thought there was something wrong, I’d go, maybe to the FBI.”
Once again the Democrats and their Leftmedia cohorts rushed to their well-worn fainting couches. Trump would accept foreign governments influencing America’s elections, they all shrieked. Never mind the fact that neither Trump nor Stephanopoulos ever said the opposition information was coming from a foreign government or agent. No matter; leftists simply assumed intent.
On Friday, Trump sought to clarify his statements, saying, “If I thought anything was incorrect or badly stated, I’d report it to the attorney general [and] the FBI. I’d report it to law enforcement, absolutely.” Obviously, Trump was not advocating breaking the law, and he is correct in noting that listening to someone, even a foreigner, is not a crime.
