Lindsey Graham: Foreign information includes the Steele dossier

President Trump may be interested in hearing information from foreign sources on his opponents, but at least one Republican thinks all candidates should reject such offers and contact the FBI.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., also made it clear Thursday he believed that Democrats had received improper foreign help in 2016 themselves.

Graham, in a long tweet thread, said, “I believe that it should be practice for all public officials who are contacted by a foreign government with an offer of assistance to their campaign — either directly or indirectly — to inform the FBI and reject the offer.”

But Graham also called Trump’s critics hypocrites, saying Democrats were more than willing to accept outside help in the last presidential election. “During that race, we had a major American political party hire a foreign national, Christopher Steele, to dig up dirt on an American presidential candidate,” Graham pointed out. “As if that was not bad enough, the foreign national compiled an unverified dossier that was then used by the FBI to obtain a warrant against an American citizen and surveil an American presidential campaign.”
