George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley weighs in on the allegations against the Clintons in regards to Russia. From Thursday's The Story with Martha MacCallum:
JONATHAN TURLEY: As you know, I've been very skeptical about the past Russian collusion claims as being a criminal matter, even though I supported the appointment of the special counsel after Comey was fired I've been cautioning and many others have that it really isn't a crime to collude. In the same, it wouldn't be a crime on the Trump side to receive information on the other side from a foreign national.
The allegations against the Clintons could potentially be criminal. It doesn't mean that they are criminal. The $500,000 given to Bill Clinton might have been innocent. The timing might just have been horrible. But that would be a cognizable crime if a linkage was found.
In the same way, the allegation over the dossier does involve a potential violation of federal law. The Federal Election Commission Act requires campaigns to state a purpose for any money spent over about $200, to sort of have an item description for each of those amounts. There isn't an item description for this law firm for the amount of money that is being alleged to have been given to this research firm.
