The right to gather information is protected by the First Amendment, regardless of who provides that information. UCLA law professor Eugene Volokh, who is a leading expert on the First Amendment, made that point in his Volokh Conspiracy blog on the Washington Post website:

"If the Hillary Clinton campaign had reason to think that, say, the British government had 'very high level and sensitive information' showing serious misbehavior by Trump, I think it would have had every right to get that information and see if it should be put before the American people as evidence that Trump shouldn't be elected," he wrote. "Limiting candidates' ability to expose their opponents' misbehavior would violate the First Amendment."
