52 USC 30121: Contributions and donations by foreign nationals.

Subtitle III-Federal Campaign Finance

ยง30121. Contributions and donations by foreign nationals

(a) Prohibition

It shall be unlawful for-

(1) a foreign national, directly or indirectly, to make-

(A) a contribution or donation of money or other thing of value, or to make an express or implied promise to make a contribution or donation, in connection with a Federal, State, or local election;

(B) a contribution or donation to a committee of a political party; or

(C) an expenditure, independent expenditure, or disbursement for an electioneering communication (within the meaning of section 30104(f)(3) of this title); or

(2) a person to solicit, accept, or receive a contribution or donation described in subparagraph (A) or (B) of paragraph (1) from a foreign national.

(b) "Foreign national" defined

As used in this section, the term "foreign national" means-

(1) a foreign principal, as such term is defined by section 611(b) of title 22, except that the term "foreign national" shall not include any individual who is a citizen of the United States; or

(2) an individual who is not a citizen of the United States or a national of the United States (as defined in section 1101(a)(22) of title 8) and who is not lawfully admitted for permanent residence, as defined by section 1101(a)(20) of title 8.

So there you have it folks, the Presidents defense attorneys and many of the Republican Senators are stating no law was broken, but here it is in writing he did.

On top of this direct and blatant violation that was proven by Trump's own legal team, the GAO (Government Accounting Office) determined he did break the law by withholding the aid.  If this had been a real trial and the witnesses were allowed to testify and the documents were subpoenaed as they should have been this would be common knowledge rather than just the knowledge of those who chose to look at the facts of the case. The reason for blocking of witnesses was to stop this from being heard by the Senators, even though they know he is guilty.  A lie of omission and saying "I was just following orders" has been the excuse used by the lackeys of tyrants and dictators all through history, and today that is what we witnessed. We witnessed the Senate of the United States grant unlimited powers with no oversight to the Executive Branch of the Government. The very thing the framers were trying to protect us from.

General Discussion / Location, Location, Location...

Back in the day we had a pinned thread where everyone listed their general location and what they do.  Thought it would be cool to put this thread up again and see how far and wide we are all spread out.

A bit of a change for me since the old days.  Relocated from Pennsylvania and I now hail from the beautiful State of Michigan where I work as a Child Protective Services Investigator in Genesee County.
