    I would not have thought that I needed to say this.

    Electoral intervention from foreign governments has been considered unacceptable since the beginning of our nations. Our Founding Fathers sounded the alarm about "foreign Interference, Intrigue, and Influence."

    Our founding fathers knew that when foreign governments seek to influence American politics, it is always to advance their own interests, not America's.

    You're right, Droolie. The way to process bribes from from foreign countries is to establish a *charitable foundation* and by using *speaking fees*.

    Of course, the problem is when you have nothing left to sell, i.e. US policy, those speaking fees can fall dramatically. Coincidentally, the fall in price is congruent with the likelihood of being able to deliver on the speaking fees paid.

    What a coincidence!

    No. But I do have a brain capable of logic. I also have standards. While you make your decision on whether this is kosher based on party, I can commit to you that when a Republican does the same thing, I will be among the first to complain.

    That would include Karl Marx who wasn't thinking of anybody but himself.

    I see you haven't been paying attention to Trump bending over backwards for Saudi Arabia and Israel, major foes of Iran.

    Here's Trump's mindset.

    I submit that he cares about Saudi Arabia and Israel because they are major foes of Iran. Like Obama before him.

    Trump loves Saudi Arabia (and the $$ they sent Jared's way) so much that he sided with MSB's denial of torturing and dismembering the American resident journalist. The Saudis made up lies about Qatar.....and Trump spread those lies.
    Trump loves Israel so much that he's taken actions that infuriate the Palestinians.

    Trump admits his 2016 guilt over accepting Russia's help.....by denying that Putin/Russia interfered in the election.
    And suggesting he'd look over whatever foreign oppo came his way....despite it being against the law.

    Trump always eventually cops to his wrongdoing....with a so what?
