    The times we live in. I don’t know if this is truth or satire. Certainly within the realm of Manafortian decadence:

    Goldstone did what Aras Agalarov’s son told him to do, he set up a meeting by promising, “attorney, damaging information, Democrats, Hillary Clinton, useful to the trumps.”

    That he did so via email is gravy. Because he clearly presented the offer to Donny Jr in such a way that it would fulfill all the terms of the election law statute prohibiting accepting something of value from a foreigner.

    And Donny Jr responded, joining a Conspiracy to Defraud the United States of its ability to enforce that election law.

      Except that nothing of value was provided. Seems to be a serious weakness in your case if not your brain, Joe.

        Your lack of understanding of 52 U.S. Code § 30121 is telling. Seems to be a fundamental weakness in you – mouthing off about things you don’t really understand.

        If you knew your subject then you would know that the code specifically covers solicitation as well as provision. You don’t have to get value to be indicted under 30121, all you have to do is solicit something of value.

        Criminal conspiracy is an agreement by two or more people to commit a crime — regardless of whether or the crime is actually committed.

          There wasn’t anything of value to solicit. You have no clue about anything.

      Except the meeting was to find out if there was anything to agree to and it turned out there wasn’t?

      • I don’t know what turned out to have happened. We may have to wait on aa few more attempts by Trump et all (or Mueller’s inquiry) before we know where the story might evolve to. All I’m sure of sat this stage is that every public claim so far can’t be true.
