A quote from an ex-Clinton staffer has recently made its way around again, which might have some Democrats thinking twice about recent comments President Donald Trump made about receiving opposition research from foreign entities.
In the fall of October 2017, Brian Fallon, who served as a spokesman for the Hillary Clinton 2016 campaign, told the The Washington Post, “Opposition research happens on every campaign, and here you had probably the most shadowy guy ever running for president, and the FBI certainly has seen fit to look into it.”
He even said that he would have been willing to go abroad to receive opposition research on then-candidate Donald Trump.
“I probably would have volunteered to go to Europe myself to try and verify if it would have helped get more of this out there before the election,” he said.

We have a president who neither understands nor respects the constitution of the United States, and he thinks the law does not apply to him.
