[Ed. – Two sets of rules]

Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairman Tom Perez told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota on Wednesday that Republicans should not use any ill-gotten information against the Democrats in the upcoming elections, but, when pressed, did not seem to think that Democrats should be held to the same standard.

“And what we saw in the 2016 election, a foreign adversary — and not just any foreign adversary, our — our most — our fiercest foreign adversary attempted to interfere with our election to help Donald Trump and hurt Hillary Clinton,” Perez said. “And what we said in 2016, and my predecessor asked her counterpart at the RNC back then to do the same thing, don’t use stolen information. That’s what we’re saying again.”

“It sounds like they’re saying that,” Camerota responded. “I mean when they say it’s an affront to all of us, any breach of political organizations, and we come together to prevent it, it sounds like they’re saying that.”
