This is peak 2020 Democrat hypocrisy.
Impeachment manager Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) on Thursday was asked whether the Clinton campaign’s use of the Steele Dossier in 2016 would be considered impeachable under the Dems’ standard.
Hakeem Jeffries said no because the Steele dossier was opposition research that “was purchased.”
What a disaster for the Democrats!
So if Hillary Clinton won the 2016 election, the legitimacy of her victory would not be in question by the Democrats even though she paid a former British spy to compile a dossier using Russian intel sources.
In other words, foreign interference in US elections is fine as long as you are a Democrat and you pay for it.
