I was listening to a “Never Trump” commentator on TV the other day….I do this because I want to hear where their heads are at right now. They were very upset about Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with a Russian lawyer in an attempt to retrieve opposition information on Hillary Clinton. They acknowledged that what Donald Trump Jr. did was not illegal, but were upset at the ethic violation of meeting with a foreigner for opposition research.
The lawyer that Donald Trump Jr. met with had no ties to the Kremlin and the meeting produced no new information on Hillary.
People now are calling Trump Jr a “traitor” and the outrage from the left is in high gear….like overdrive.
I want to first point out that President Trump’s opponents in the Hillary camp did the SAME thing. A Hillary Clinton operative met with Ukrainian Ambassador Valery Chaly in March of 2016 to dig up dirt on members of the Trump campaign.
I have worked on several campaigns, anyone who says that there is no opposition research done is LYING to you! If you are a smart candidate you actually hire to have opposition research done on YOURSELF to see what is found and prepare for a defense.
Now I want to address the ethical side of this. MORE
