Volokh went on to note that the statute in question applies not to foreign governments but to all foreigners. Under the interpretation the anti-Trumpers seek, no member of a campaign could seek information from any foreign national, Russian, British, Canadian or Fijian.

In reality, this is just the latest in a series of non-scandal scandals concerning the Trump administration. Remember how you felt when you heard reports that the President had disclosed classified information in that White House chat with the Russkies?
