Love how all you legal “experts” really don’t have a clue. Such a gxorlando in referencing The Code of Federal Regulations, which is a compilation of of the general and permanent rules and regulations from the executive departments of the Federal Government and thus applies to American citizens and not foreign nationals.
The Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), provides this volunteer “exemption” as long as the individual performing the service is not compensated by anyone. So having Russia pay its citizens to gather data and then “volunteer” to give it to a candidate disqualifies such a person from the volunteer exemption.
And being further ignorant, or more accurately lying, it was Donald Trump who received $ billions in free advertisement from the national media.
And how about 52 U.S. Code 30121 as it actually reads:
“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); “
So, where is the glorious “The thing “of value” …” crap you stated?
And you got your info from multiple adulterer Bob Livingston! And you quote him as a reliable source … LMAO.
And by the way, Putin is very happy with you for helping him and Mother Russia to destabilize our elections through the spreading of their fake news.
