Did you doubt for a moment that Donald Trump’s political campaign was being either influenced or even controlled by foreigners?
The Telegraph (a conservative UK newspaper) sent undercover reporters to meet with Trump’s Super PAC, “Great America PAC”. The reporters posed as representatives of a (fictitious) Chinese donor, who wanted to donate $2 million to support Trump.
The SuperPAC was happy to accept the money, which is a violation of US laws prohibiting political donations from foreigners. They even suggested ways to launder the money through a third party to hide its origin. Seriously.
In addition, the representative of the SuperPAC assured the undercover reporters that their support would be “remembered” and would obtain “influence” if Trump became president. In other words, pay to play.
Trump has repeatedly labeled Super PACs a “disaster” that have “total control of the candidates”. He has also criticized Hillary Clinton for using them. Incidentally, the same undercover reporters tried to donate to Clinton’s Super PAC, but were ignored.
And of course, Trump has disparaged the Chinese and said they are destroying our country.
So, isn’t this an impeachable offense?
