Schiff: Dems Getting Information From Ukraine Would Have Been Inappropriate

Posted: Jul 16, 2017 4:30 PM

As Guy wrote about yesterday, Democrats wanting to get to the bottom of the Russia matter can't ignore their own history of "coordinating with foreign governments or entities to win a domestic election," referencing the saga of a DNC operative and Ukrainians who provided opposition research on Trump to the DNC and the Clinton campaign. 

Maybe they're listening?

On Sunday's "This Week," Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said "it wouldn’t be appropriate for the Democrats to get help from the Ukrainian government. It would be problematic to get any kind of support from a foreign government.”

Although he said it wouldn't have been appropriate, Schiff says that comparing Ukrainian efforts with Russian efforts "is a bit like comparing a bank robbery with writing a check with insufficient funds."
