Does anyone one recall when and who the President was when foreign money influenced US Presidential and Congressional elections?

"The theory is as follows: This unnamed company (supposed Russian Bank VEB - state owned and Putin sits on the Board of Directors) was going to fund Trump’s Moscow Tower, however it couldn’t because of the US sanctions Obama placed on them before leaving office. So Trump would lift the sanctions in order to get his tower funded. Kushner met with VEB’s chairman in NY, and also a man who pled guilty to spying for the Russian government posed as a VEB employee (VEB paid this man’s legal bills). VEB also helped fund the Trump tower construction in Toronto, so the Trump’s have past history with this Russian “bank”. "
is there supposedly a crime in that theory, or just another "degrees of separation" exercise by the lefties?

Sanctions not lifted. Tower not built. Trump tougher on Russia than Obama.

what number are we up to now in the "oh boy, this one is really going to get Trump" charade?

Didn't bother reading the article, Cim? And who gives a crap who paid for it? If someone requested it, that means they wanted dirt on Trump.
Every candidate since 1776 wanted dirt on the opposition candidate! That's standard operating procedure!

And it's absolutely important who paid for it and what they paid for.

And think about this. What does it tell you about the person who wants dirt on someone else? Especially enough to perhaps even make up things that are lies.

Candidates don’t get dirt from foreign entities. Stop being a disingenuous gaslighter.

It came from Fusion GPS. Who was initially asked by the Washington Free Beacon, a conservative news outlet.
You do realize that’s old news? When Trump won the Republican nomination they pulled out. I’m pretty sure they never paid anything.

oh please.... stop already....

The original arrangement between the Free Beacon and Fusion GPS involved opposition research into multiple Republican candidates, not just front-runner Donald Trump.

Sources close to the Free Beacon stress that the project, when the Free Beacon funded it, had nothing to do with Russia and did not involve Christopher Steele, the former British spy who gathered anti-Trump dirt in Russia. Steele was retained by Fusion GPS when the project was funded by Democrats, and not in its initial phase, when the Free Beacon was involved.

The Clinton campaign worked with an American research agency who hired a well respected former intelligence officer from an ally country.

The Trump campaign worked with a foreign government who was meddling in our elections. Taking over parts of a neighboring country and under sanctions by our government for misdeeds they committed in relationship to Mr. Magnitzky.

Yeah, totally the same.

tl;dr version: Both campaigns had dealings with foreign governments and either can be spun to be good or bad.
