It is illegal for any person to solicit, accept, or receive anything of value from a foreign national in connection with a U.S. election - Ellen Weintraub (The head of the Federal Election Commission)
Opposition research, or as Trump calls it "oppo research" is valuable . The democrats paid a U.S. firm to obtain a copy of the "Steele dossier".
FEC chairwoman appears to subtweet Trump over the illegality of accepting foreign help in election
Savannah Behrmann , USA TODAY
WASHINGTON— The head of the Federal Election Commission reminded candidates that asking for help from foreign governments is illegal in an apparent subtweet of President Donald Trump
Ellen Weintraub's tweet came after Trump exclaimed that China should investigate former vice president Joe Biden , despite already being in the middle of an impeachment inquiry after asking Ukraine for the same thing.
"By the way, likewise, China should start an investigation into the Biden's because what happened in China is just about as bad as what happened with Ukraine," Trump told reporters on the White House South Lawn Thursday.
“Is this thing on?” Ellen Weintraub wrote soon after Trump's press gaggle, re-upping her original scathing memorandum from June , accompanied with the microphone emoji.
Okay, that's the law.
Here is one of several public confessions Trump has made.
