Contrary to what Trump thinks and says, Christopher Steele wasn't a foreign government or acting as an agent of one. The dossier was the work product of a DC based research firm hired by a conservative media group then the Democrats. Accepting opposition research from a company you hired is acceptable. Trump talking to world leaders, as part of his job is one thing.
Accepting it from a foreign government is another. Not reporting it, to me, is unethical. You think Russia is going to offer damaging information and not expect something in return?
I don't know...just seems highly unethical. Our founding fathers warned us against it - but that doesn't matter since neither party truly gives about what our founders thought.
But what if the DC based research firm received the information from a foreign govt?
