    Sanders campaign fined for colluding with foreigners during election

    https://about.bgov.com/blog/sanders-...stralians-fec/

    The presidential campaign of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) illegally accepted foreign campaign contributions by getting help from a group of Australian campaign volunteers who were paid by the Australian Labor Party, the Federal Election Commission concluded.

    A settlement between the FEC and the Sanders campaign will require the campaign to pay a fine of $14,500.

    The Australians were paid a total $24,422 for airfare and stipends received while they worked for the Sanders campaign during the New Hampshire presidential primary, according to the FEC. Those payments counted as a foreign contribution prohibited by U.S. law.

    The case could provide a legal precedent to establish that a presidential campaign can be held accountable for receiving foreign help.

    The Sanders campaign contended it didn’t believe it violated the law because of an exemption for volunteer services provided by foreigners. The campaign settled the case “in order to avoid the expense of litigation, without admitting liability,” according to a conciliation agreement between the campaign and the FEC.
    Seems to me everybody EXCEPT the Trump campaign was engaged in criminal collusion with foreigners to interfere in the election
    "As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths." Isaiah 3:12

    There is no such thing as innocence, only degrees of guilt.

    Just what the Russians want you to believe.

    You mean Zymolotsov?
    God moves in a mysterious way His wonders to perform; He plants his footsteps in the sea, And rides upon the storm. You fearful saints fresh courage take, The clouds you so much dread are great with mercy, and shall break In blessings on your head. Judge not the Lord by your feeble sense, But trust him for his grace; Behind a frowning providence He hides a smiling face. William Cowper

    Everyone except for Trump. Oh you guys are just too funny. It must be the deep state, even though it's made up of mostly conservative republicans.
