Ellen L. Weintraub, chairwoman of the Federal Election Commission, wipes the floor with T-rump
Ellen L. Weintraub, chairwoman of the Federal Election Commission, decided to wipe the floor with T-rump yesterday after he said on national TV he has no problem breaking the law and getting 'oppo information' from foreign governments.
"Let me make something 100% clear to the American public and anyone running for public office: It is illegal for any person to solicit, accept, or receive anything of value from a foreign national in connection with a U.S. election. This is not a novel concept. Electoral intervention from foreign governments has been considered unacceptable since the beginnings of our nation. Our Founding Fathers sounded the alarm about 'foreign Interference, Intrigue, and Influence.' They knew that when foreign governments seek to influence American politics, it is always to advance their own interests, not America's. Anyone who solicits or accepts foreign assistance risks being on the wrong end of a federal investigation. Any political campaign that receives an offer of a prohibited donation from a foreign source should report that offer to the Federal Bureau of Investigation."
If any T-rumpanzee can translate this to your head dictator in easy words that even he can understand, your welcome to it.
