Trump's attack on Hillary and fellow Democrats Wednesday was over what he described as a double standard for their respective associates' alleged coordination with foreign governments in the campaign.
He used his Twitter account Wednesday to the Washington Times article outlining how Democrats used false information from Russia to attack him and his campaign.
Mr. Trump tweeted:
"@WashTimes states 'Democrats have willfully used Moscow disinformation to influence the presidential election against Donald Trump."He then added:
"Why aren't the same standards placed on the Democrats. Look what Hillary Clinton may have gotten away with. Disgraceful!"The Washington Tomes report refers back to the questionable dossier, written by Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence agent. It was allegedly distributed by Fusion GPS, the Democrat-funded opposition research firm, and Steele was allegedly paid by a Clinton supporter. The FBI eventually got their hands on the dossier.
The White House and Trump supporters also cited a meeting between a DNC consultant and officials at the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington, D.C., last year.
"If you are looking for an example of a campaign coordinating with a foreign country or a foreign source, look no further than the DNC, which actually coordinated opposition research with the Ukrainian Embassy," White House Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Monday.
"This is not an accusation. That is an on-the-record action that they took," she said.
But let's be honest with ourselves; both sides of the aisle are filled with hypocrites.
