I wonder why it is kosher for Hillary to pay a foreign Intel source for fake info on her opponent but it is horrible for Trump to listen to someone offering info. Apparently this is part of why Trump is a threat to the world according to Biden but it is fine when their side does it.

Nah, paying for it is definitely worse, so not an equivalence

I love how 'consistency' always leave absurd comments on everything and never stick around to prove their point or come with arguments.

The self anointed, insufferable media and political elite acting as if Trump is worse than any of them is pretty rich.

I don't understand why this is wrong. If it is true, does it matter where I comes from? We should all be skeptical of foreign Intel but not flat out reject it.

i totally agree, like how everyone was more mad that emails got hacked than the fact that said emails were incriminating.

I think the problem comes from the possibility that whatever foreign power does this might then have more leverage with with the person they gave the information. You really can't be sure if that person now owes the other party something in return, so it should be seen has a problem

Its wrong because it is against the wrong person. Anything bad for the left = wrong Anything good for the left = right Don't let them pretend that there are any morals at work here and hold our side to a higher standard.

Anyone who's ever been involved in a political campaign knows that you want dirt on your opponent no matter where it comes from. Then you check it out to see if it's true. That's how politics works. Anyone who says otherwise is trying to con you.

But to get it from a foreign government runs the risk of you owing that foreign government a favor. I know some here might say that it's no problem if we get those kinds of information from allies like the UK or Germany or even "allies" like Saudi Arabia. But what happens when we get information from countries that are not our ally or we have a rocky relationship with like Iran, China, Pakistan, North Korea, or even Eritrea (Russia is way too obvious to even mention)

mac, i get your point but favours aren't legally binding and could be repaid in a way that doesnt hurt America. specially in a second term president.

@MacrossMX When you're in government people are always trying to get favours. That's why you have to elect people with intelligence and a backbone

I'm sure if Russia came to the democrats with accurate information damaging to Trump they'd decline it, because they're paragons of ethics and morality!

Well if democrats did take information from a foreign government would you want them prosecuted?

@Mod Okay if it's accurate important leaked information does it matter the source? Information is information.

Wells its illegal....Federal election law, administered by the Federal Election Commission, prohibits contributions, donations and other expenditures by “foreign nationals” in any federal, state or local election as well an exchange of any “thing of value.” Most recently, Section 303 of the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002, also known as the McCain-Feingold Act. Also you dont want to favorite or be beholden to a foreign goverment, Isnt that going against the whole "America First" slogan haha.

Rationalisations for what? Listening to things?
Mod Okay 3 months
Haha it went from its all a hoax, to Trump didnt solicit any information from the Russians , to yeah we took a meeting at Trump tower...He successfully dooped his followers into normalizing something that is illegal. I am not surprised that it happened, just amazed at how quick the turn around was.
