We’re convinced it not only takes chutzpah to be a Democrat, but a degree in rhetorical jujitsu is required as well.
Consider this rationale as to why it was ethically fine and dandy for the Clinton Democrats to gladly accept the dubious dossier on Donald Trump from Christopher Steele, but downright wrong for a Republican to receive “free” information from a foreigner. This gem of logical gymnastics comes courtesy of former Obama Justice Department spokesman Matt Miller.
Says Mr. Miller: “It is legal under United States law for a campaign to hire a foreign individual, to hire someone, to pay them to go out and conduct research or do other things for you. Campaigns do that from time to time. That’s what the DNC did. It is illegal to accept help from a foreigner.”
Hmmmm, curious. Perhaps Townhall.com editor Katie Pavlich hit the proverbial nail when she wrote: “Apparently, accepting foreign help during a campaign, paid or unpaid, is ethical only if you’re a Democrat. If you’re President Trump, it’s an impeachable offense.”
