    What the Democrats thought when Obama did this?


    Obama admin. sent taxpayer money to campaign to oust Netanyahu


    The State Department paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxpayers grants to an Israeli group that used the money to build a campaign to oust Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in last year’s Israeli parliamentary elections, a congressional investigation concluded Tuesday.

    Some $350,000 was sent to OneVoice, ostensibly to support the group’s efforts to back Israeli-Palestinian peace settlement negotiations. But OneVoice used the money to build a voter database, train activists and hire a political consulting firm with ties to President Obama’s campaign — all of which set the stage for an anti-Netanyahu campaign, the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations said in a bipartisan staff report.




    So if Trump abused his power by allegedly soliciting interference in an American election isn’t it likewise an abuse of power to use taxpayer funds to interfere in a foreign election?

    Did Obama get a personal favor in return?

    Answer the question at hand! Why is it right for Obama to send taxpayer funds to influence a foreign election?

    Once the money is received, Obama and the Congress (Yes, both) had no way of controlling how it was to actually be spent. You really are reaching on this one. No Personal Favors were involved for Obama. No interference in the US Elections were involved. This is another case of "What about Obama" that makes zero sense. Stop lying.

    He didn't. And that money was actually sent by the US Congress. Your "What about Obama" is noted and your attempt at moving the discussion from your own liar, cheat and orange criminal in charge is noted.

    Only because he was bagged before hand. If you were to go rob a bank and the cops surrounded the place and you decided you couldn't get away from it could you just hand the money back and the robbery never happened? Of course, in your mind Rump could.
