Why is it when Donald Trump Jr does it it's "treason" but when Hillary Clinton does it it's "opposition research"?

    How much uranium did Donald Trump, Jr give to the Russians, and what bribes did he and his family receive for doing so?

    Because one is opposition research and the other is, at least in spirit, somewhat close to treason.

    In the Clinton case she paid a company to conduct opposition research on Donald Trump. That is pretty standard. Any significant campaign in the u.s. does opposition research on their opponents.

    What Donald Trump jr. did was completely different. He was approached by someone who was identified as an agent of a foreign government working to advance that country's political agenda. He then attempted to get help from them in the campaign. This is illegal under us election law, and the fact that Trump would help a foreign government Advance its agenda in the US does not speak well to his patriotism

    I guess the same reason it is the other way around for cons.

    Hillary paid an American company for the dossier!

    Trump Jr gleefully tried to collude with a foreign national with ties to the Kremlin!!!

    See the difference now?

    It is impossible to argue with the followers of Saint Hillary, Queen of the Universe.

    It's even less comparable than that. Trump's meeting involved no actual information or data, only a vague reference to it in the future. Nothing illegal at that point.

    Clinton's treason involved real hard copy disinformation generated by, and spread to, real people. Which was subsequently acted upon by both willing, and unknowing apparatchiks.

    I didn’t know Chelsea Clinton met with agents of our great foreign enemy Great Britain and attempted to be its toy.
