Skip to comments.Congratulations, dems. You've made an iron clad case against hillary clinton and the DNC

Yesterday I wrote that Trump had goaded democrats and Pelosi into doing what he wanted, i.e. ban foreign foreign opposition research. He has repeatedly said that what happened to him should never happen to another President. But there's more and the left still doesn't get it and I need to spell it out even more clearly.
Trump has baited the left into making all kinds of caustic remarks and they have swallowed the lure.
Analysis of this Trump clip consumed most of the hour with ODonnell interviewing several guests, including MSNBC contributor Jennifer Rubin, who went on an angry tirade against the President: You have to ask a more fundamental question which is, how can anyone in their right mind and good conscience support putting this guy in office for another four years Another fundamental question: how does MSNBC retain viewership when it insults over half the U.S. population who voted for Trump?Here's what the DNC media spent its time on yesterday
Rubin continued: He is a mess. He has betrayed his country. He will do it again. If he's reelected can you imagine what he's going to do, then? It's really catastrophic. The only one Trump has been betraying is the liberal media that he has rightfully labeled fake news.
Not that anyone should really care, but Andrew MCCabe, the disgraced former FBI agent who is wholly owned by the DNC and the Clinton Foundation, said Trump impeachment proceedings should begin immediately.
ABC's cheap trick Ana Navarro called Trump's words "treasonous."
Even Judge Nap has been sucked in.
Asked by Fox's Shepard Smith if Trump had any "wiggle room" when it came to listening to a foreign entity offering information on a political opponent, Napolitano said no.Serial unmasker Susan Rice said Trump's not playing on the US team.
Theres no wiggle room with respect to dirt, with respect to opposition research because the Federal Election Commission has already decided in other cases that that is a thing of value," he said, adding that it "comes from a statute which prohibits receipt of money or a thing of value from a foreign national. Whether the person is working for a foreign government or not.
Rice said, This is extremely serious. The stark reality, the sad truth is that we have a president in the United States whose not playing on Americas team. He is invited yet again foreign interference in our presidential elections. He said that and finally admitted, in fact, that he sees nothing wrong with collusion, which is in fact what happens when you accept information from a foreign entity. And he said he would do it again. He sees no problem with a president of the United States being beholden to a foreign power, even a foreign hostile power as inevitably one would be if you accepted information and support from a foreign government. They have their claws into you, and they can manipulate you.Joe Biden called taking foreign oppo research "dead wrong."
Then FEC Chairperson Ellen Weintraub dropped the hammer (I am not sure if this was wittingly or not)
Federal Elections Commission Chairwoman Ellen Weintraub appeared to rebuke President Trump after he said he would be willing listen to foreign governments promising information on his political opponents.Remember all these words. They're going to be used again and all of the above may be called as witnesses. Against Hillary Clinton and the DNC. Their hatred of Trump has made them clueless and careless and Trump was counting on that. They did not let him (or me) down.
Weintraub issued a statement Thursday night attempting to clarify federal law relating to political campaigns and foreign influence.
I would not have thought that I needed to say this, she said in a tweet with her statement.
"Let me make something 100% clear to the American public and anyone running for public office: It is illegal for anyone to solicit, accept, or receive anything of value from a foreign national in connection with a U.S. election, Weintraub said.
Anyone who solicits or accepts foreign assistance risks being on the wrong end of a federal investigation, she continued. Any campaign that receives an offer of a prohibited donation from a foreign source should report that offer to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Here is the key point:
Donald Trump was not talking about himself. He was talking about Obama, Clinton and the DNC. He let the left make an iron clad case for charging Clinton and the DNC with felonies.

As opposed to domestic foreign opposition research?..........
After everything that was said yesterday I thought for Sure Hillary and Company would have been Perp Walked, because THEY DID EVERYTHING THE MEDIA RAILED ABOUT YESTERDAY!!!
President Trump plays the media like a fiddle.
Jebbifer Rubin is still mad that Yeb! didn’t get to be a gracious Designated Loser like it was planned.
How about MANUFACTURING ‘opposition research’?
Is that legal?
HilLIARy sure didn’t complain that she paid $8 million and was given fake data.
Ill beleive it when at least a few of the coup conspirators have been locked in their cells. Until then it looks more like losing than 4D underwater hockey.
LOL....Sure did...He played Stephanie, too.
I hear you. I do try to remain optimistic, but it’s all moving so slowly that one has to wonder if it’s moving at all. The Modified Limited Hangout could indeed be in play. I just hope it isn’t.
The key phrase from the statute is “money or other thing of value”, and (to my knowledge) information given with no exchange of another thing of value has always been outside the definition of “thing of value”. Napolitano’s pronouncement otherwise that the FEC has decided this contradicts court cases that, IIRC, decided the principle.
>>> charging Clinton and the DNC with felonies.
Tick tock . . .
I would be surprised if he didn't get sucked in, cause he sucks.
“...He let the left make an iron clad case for charging Clinton and the DNC with felonies. ...”
Then DO it.
As long as any of that crew walks free, it proves that some ARE above the law... just not you or I or any of us.
Yep, this is what I thought when I first heard that exchange. Taking foreign oppo research is EXACTLY what Hillary did.
So it’s either legal for her and also legal for Trump, or Hillary is in deep doo-doo.
She solicited the info.
It will cease to be when enough of us motivate Barr to get off his ass and do his gd job.
I would agree with that.
On the other hand, Hillary paid millions for the Steele Dossier that the British and Russians put together for her at her request. You got the soliciting, receiving, and value right there.
Yes, rope a dope, cool, but...
None of it will be enforced on Dems and Nothing will happen. See: Hillary, private server, emails, murders, etc.
