nearvideo trump criticized, to call the press an enemy of the people
The media and Trump wage political struggle; ‘MediaBuzz’ host Howard Kurtz weighs in.
Prominent Democrats expressed outrage Wednesday after President Trump confessed he would be willing to listen to the political opposition research by foreign players-also, as you will not condemn Democrats, including representatives from Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC), for the financing of the creation of the anti-trump, “Steele dossier” by a former British spy.
Trump told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos that he made contact with the FBI, if such an approach was. Video from the interview to the public the evening went on Wednesday.
“I think I would want to hear. … I think you might want to listen to, there is nothing wrong with listening,” Trump said. “It is not interference, you have information, I think I would take it,” Trump said. “If I thought there was something wrong, then I would maybe to the FBI, if I thought there was something wrong.”
Some scholars have argued that the campaign Finance law bars U.S. campaigns from knowingly or collection of information from foreign actors. Other prominent law professors counter, unless such information constitutes a market-quantifiable “thing of value”, there are some restrictions on the sharing or searching for information.

UCLA law professor Eugene Volokh, for example, has said that any attempt by the criminalization of the mere exchange of information between the US-advised campaigns and foreign actors could be in conflict, the First Amendment. This particular area of the law, he noted, is not worked out particularly well.
Nevertheless, top Democrats Trump discharged almost immediately after the video surfaced online.
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-NY, – 2020-a candidate for the office, tweeted: “It is time for Congress to begin impeachment hearings.”
Joe Biden wrote, “President Trump is, once again, welcome foreign interference in our elections. This is not about politics. It is a threat to our national security. An American President should not try, your help and abet those who are trying to undermine democracy.”
“This is just the latest example of what said Vice-President Biden, when he said that Mr. Trump is an existential threat to our country,” the anti-Trump, a former Director of the CIA, John Brennan, wrote on Twitter. “‘Unfit to be President’ is a gross understatement. @realDonaldTrump is unworthy of any public office, and all Americans should be horrified.”
Over wrote the Virginia Democrat Rep. Don Beyer: “trombone blew away ‘no collusion,” he is broadcasting his willingness to receive the help of a hostile foreign power in 2020. He is not happy that his son says to the FBI about the Russian help, and he wouldn’t call you in 2020. Yes, we absolutely need a law enforcement investigation.”
Beyer, in may, was the first Virginia Democrat, for the trump of the prosecution. Other political commentators have shared his dim view of Trump’s comments.
“Trump goes on TV to advertise, the foreign agreements,” wrote the New York magazine’s Jonathan Chait.
“Entirely predictable,” said CNN contributor Amanda Carpenter. “Don’t let people get it yet? Trump is always the way with the campaign Finance crimes, collusion attempts, and disability. Now. As we speak. Why should he change? Bullies bully until someone with courage, intelligence, and, perhaps, forcing them to retreat.”
But the conservatives pointed out that these Democrats and commentators were completely silent on the numerous episodes of apparent high-level Democrat-political relations, foreign agents and actors.
For example, Beyer, Brennan, and other non-level similar accusations against Democrats at the beginning of may, when Ukraine is written to the message that a DNC insider reached in the year 2016, the information about President of the Trump campaign.

The investigation began after an unearthed audio recording showed that a senior Ukrainian Anti-corruption official apparently admitted to leaking Manafort financial information in 2016-including its binding to the pro-Russian actors in Ukraine, is a benefit to Clinton.

A Ukrainian court decided recently that the Manafort leak amounted to illegal interference in the US election.
