    Now if these donors were giving Hillary's private business loans, (like Kushner's scandal) that's incentive for corruption.
    Exactly. Their argument seems to be that if i donate money in your name to a charity that then helps people, that is me trying to bribe you. It makes no sense unless they can find a way that the clintons actually took money from the foundation. And they cant.

    The fake Russian ads the trolls used against Hillary. Most likely where Nunes and his guys read about the "story" as well.

    The fact is that there is zero credible evidence, none, nada, that supports the asshat Uranium One conspiracy theory, nor have you or anyone else produced any, nor can you.

    :
    Yet another example of "if a left-wing source says it, it MUST be false!" That's something I see y'all do time and time and time again - y'all never seem to bother with trying to actually verify whether the information is true or false. Y'all only look at who says it. If right-wing says it, it must be true, and if left-wing says it, it must be false.

    BTW, time was that Republicans agreed with us about global warming...but after the Religious Right and the pundits forced y'all to believe that the Left is 100% wrong 100% of the time, well, whenever we say something that is true, y'all immediately take the other side even if it's wrong, 'cause liberals are never, ever right about anything!

    One more thing - I'm no hypocrite. Post something by a right-wing site (other than InfoWars) and I'll read it (no videos please)...and THEN I'll decide whether it's factual or not. I do that because sometimes right-wing sites post factual stuff. It's just sad that you can't allow yourself to realize that sometimes left-wing sites post factual stuff, too.

    The rebuttal? You mean the Schiff memo? I've read it.

    In any case, I don't know what "cherry picked facts" you are talking about. Perhaps you can clarify?

    But be aware that I consider the Nunez memo...as well as the Schiff memo...to be off topic to this thread. Don't be surprised if I decline to comment.

    Oh. I can't say that I've ever seen any "fake Russian ads", so I still don't know what narrative you think I've fallen for.

    I've not taken part in that conspiracy theory, so I see no reason to produce anything in regard to it. But that doesn't change my judgment of this Dem memo. Do you have any actual facts?

    I think you are missing a bit of logic here. Let's break this down, okay?

    Under your scenario...

    1. I run a charity.

    2. You donate to my charity.

    3. You kind of skip over the "pay to play" part which means I give you some compensation for your donation. In the case of Hillary, that compensation would be related to her position as Sec State.

    4. That donation may not go into MY pocket, but it does go into an organization that I'm running. But my compensation does benefit you.

    5. So yes...that donation could be considered a bribe.

    But hey...that's the way these political bribes work. There are many, many politicians engaged in the same activity. That's called "the swamp".
