    Schiff: Washington Democrats meeting with Ukrainian officials for Trump dirt would have been 'inappropriate'


    California Rep. Adam Schiff said Sunday that fellow Washington Democrats acted “inappropriately” if they indeed met with Ukrainian officials to get potentially damaging information on 2016 GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump -- amid widespread probes, allegations and revelations about the Trump campaign meeting with Russian officials to try to derail Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

    “It wouldn’t be appropriate for the Democrats to get help from the Ukrainian government,” Schiff, the top Democrat on the House's Intelligence committee, which is investigating the Russian meddling, told ABC’s “This Week.” “It would be problematic to get any kind of support from a foreign government.”
    Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

    “There is a deeply anti-democratic undercurrent to much of the criticism of the new president, borne aloft by an assumption that democracy is too important to be left to the voters.”

    CNN doesn't agree with him, Russia's worse so the Ukrainians are a nothing story.

    This is what I don't get - the Trump story is a case of a Russian coming to a Trump family member under false pretense to gain access. That's -- bad.

    The Democrat story is Democrats GOING TO THEM to get dirt on Trump - and that's not ok, but - meh.

    Apparently it is MUCH worse to be willing to hear about dirt on your opponent - but not get any - than to actually seek to get it from a foreign source - deliberately.

    CNN is actually saying Russia is our enemy and Ukraine is not and that makes all of the difference.

    This is what's amazing to me... almost throughout the entire Obama presidency they were 'colluding' with the Russians, yucking it up with Vlad, telling Dmitri he will have more flexibility with missile defense, resetting relations, turning a blind eye to the Crimean annexation... Now, suddenly they're our enemy, now that Trump and his crew are 'colluding'.

    MR... colluding is colluding, is it not?

    A sitting official would be making policy unless there is a quid pro quo. What did obama get or give in that collusion?

    As for the OP, yes collusion is collusion. It should be investigated and if there is illegal activity it should be prosecuted. Do you disagree?

    Of course, your reply to this will be predictable.
