Democrats in the Senate offered a bill that would require political campaigns to report to the FBI if a foreign country offered to help them in their elections. Republicans claim they want free fair elections, but they blocked that bill. Sounds like they aren't that interested in protecting the integrity of our elections after all.

The Obama administration used a foreign agent employed by the FBI to obtain a fake dossier in order to secure a fraudulent warrant to conduct a surveillance on a political opponent and they lost anyway. Can you trust the FBI?

The bill had nothing to do with Bernie. Why don't you want foreign countries interference stopped?

Sure. That's exactly what it is intended to help prevent.

What about when Schiff thought he was going to get nude pics of Trump from Russian trolls?

Watch closely. Under this law, it would be considered foreign interference for a foreign government or entity to provide TRUTHFUL INFORMATION about a political candidate, if the information could be helpful or hurtful to the candidacy.

The TRUTH is a PROBLEM for Democrats.

For example, INVESTIGATING JOE BIDEN and his SON'S ACTIVITIES IN UKRAINE is a political favor.

NOTE AGAIN: The Truth is a political favor.

Do you see how perverted this thinking is?

If the information is harmful to our country, there are plenty of routs to share that information. This is strictly for information to help or hurt political candidates.

There's always something irrelevant to the primary legislation.

Because it can't be stopped. The states are in-charge of their elections. If foreign countries write op-eds, or buy TV commercials, or buy facebook or google commercials, or youtube commercials, or ads in newspapers, or radio ads, or any other form of political interference, who is going to police that? How do we know that they'd stop all ads and not just the ones for the opposition party?

So foreign interference can't be stopped, that's a bullshit claim.

. . . and I am absolutely POSITIVE, that the DNC would get right on reporting all of the foreign donations they receive from Canada, Britain, Saudi, Israel, etc. etc. etc. :nocknockHT:

I am so sure they would be up front about about it all. . .and if anything slipped their mind and a partisan FBI agent happened to find out about it? I am certain that FBI agent would file a report immediately and the completely non-biased corporate press would blow the whistle on THAT too. :auiqs.jpg:



Sorry, the DNC has a horrible history on this. .. they are the last folks to be trusted on this.
