    FEC chair rebukes Trump over statements on accepting election help from foreign governments

    The head of the Federal Elections Commission issued a thinly veiled rebuke of Donald Trump on Thursday over the president’s stance on accepting opposition research from foreign governments on his political adversaries.

    Ellen Weintraub, the FEC chair, expressed her disbelief that Trump believed accepting foreign assistance in a U.S. political election was permissible.

    Yes please let's cut the crap. He was responding to a "Just suppose" question and he said he MIGHT listen to what a foreign entity had to say.

    Yet others in government do exactly that but because they call it opposition "research" its ok. Steele got his info from unknown Russian sources.... and what the hell was their motive? Well, we can actually see what their motive was. they have succeeded in disrupting the United States government. Yet as long as Hillary can peddle her sack of sour grapes shes perfectly content.

    We aren't talking about opposition research. The dossier went to the FBI. Hillary has nothing to do with this. It's time to stop believing everything Trump says.

    And conservatives continue to blindly support Trump; conservatives are just as dishonest and corrupt as Trump.
