GRAHAM says TRUMP wrong on accepting “dirt” from foreign government, pivots to STEELE dossier:

"I’m hoping some of my Democratic colleagues will take more seriously the fact that Christopher Steele was a foreign agent paid for by the Democratic Party to gather dirt on Trump"

Two key distinctions between Steele and Russia:

1) Paying Christopher Steele is a *legal* campaign *expenditure* — accepting anything of value from a noncitizen is an *illegal* campaign *contribution*

2) Russia was offering *stolen* material to Trump

FEC chair ELLEN WEINTRAUB:

“Let me make something 100% clear to the American public and anyone running for public office: It is illegal for any person to solicit, accept or receive anything of value from a foreign national in connection w/ a US election”
