1. I understand this impulse, but how do you define “reporting dirt” and “by foreign adversaries” - if this was law in 2016, Clinton campaign would be in trouble because some “dirt” Steele obtained on Trump which made it into his “dossier” was via sources in Russia.

2. If this becomes law and a “clear-cut foreign adversary” - let’s say an operative for the Iranian government - were to approach Biden’s campaign with offers of solid “dirt” about Trump, Biden’s campaign would have to reject this offer and report it to FBI, overseen by AG Barr…

3. If a “foreign adversary” were to post such dirt on social media, would campaigns be prohibited from using it? If not, what’s to stop “foreign adversaries” from doing this? Wouldn’t that make this law kinda pointless?
