Democratic California Rep. Adam Schiff appears to have reversed his position on the ethics of using “stolen” information against political foes.
“It’s not OK to use materials they stole from your opponent, or to make it part of your campaign strategy,” Schiff tweeted on Sunday.
I said it before and I’ll say it again:— Adam Schiff (@RepAdamSchiff) April 21, 2019
It’s not ok to seek Russian help in your campaign.
It’s not ok to use materials they stole from your opponent, or to make it part of your campaign strategy.
Sadly, my GOP colleagues do think that’s ok.

But when “the Russians” contacted Schiff in 2017, offering him information that they promised would prove compromising to President Donald Trump, he had a very different reaction.
After being told that there were naked photos of Trump and the Russian model, Schiff instructed members of his staff to follow up — which they did, attempting to set up a meeting with Parubiy in order to move forward.
