The media's hypocrisy concerning foreign influence in U.S. elections is staggering.
Find me a media commentator who isnt turning him or herself upside down trying to explain why Donald Trump Jr.s meeting with the Russians could potentially lead to the presidents removal from office, and Ill show you someone who either isnt on the air or is just not trying very hard.
Nobody seemed to care when the Russians used political influence to buy up U.S. uranium stocks under Obama. Lets see if they care the Chinese may now be trying to buy up significant quantities of U.S. copper using a criminally-convicted former Clinton associate as a front to do it. Its the allegation foreign influence tipped the balance in 2016 presidential election thats the story that keeps going and growing because the Trump haters think it might eventually lead to something that pushes him out of office.
The president is right when he says most anyone would have taken the meeting his son took though maybe not at that senior a level. Campaigns are rough and tumble. Good operatives are always on the lookout for information that could be damaging to an opponent and contrary to what some folks are saying as they peek out from under the halos that have suddenly appeared above their heads thats not always stuff that comes from publicly available sources. Barack Obama got to the U.S. Senate because he got a couple of news organizations to convince an Illinois judge to unseal divorce records that both parties to the divorce agreed would be closed to public view.

CHI-COMs gave to Bill and Al Gore and they damn well knew where the money was coming from and what they were giving China in exchange. Anything to win in 1996.

Barack Obama told Russia he could be more flexible AFTER the 2012 election.
