He should've done it the DNC/Hillary way and PAY for it...
I'm sure he did.

Manafort had been working for Putin for years, so at the very least he knew exactly that these were Russian spies they were meeting.



52 U.S. Code § 30121 - Contributions and donations by foreign nationals

US Code

(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); or

(2) a person to solicit, accept, or receive a contribution or donation described in subparagraph (A) or (B) of paragraph (1) from a foreign national.

(b) “Foreign national” defined

As used in this section, the term “foreign national” means—

(1) a foreign principal, as such term is defined by section 611(b) of title 22, except that the term “foreign national” shall not include any individual who is a citizen of the United States; or

(2) an individual who is not a citizen of the United States or a national of the United States (as defined in section 1101(a)(22) of title 8) and who is not lawfully admitted for permanent residence, as defined by section 1101(a)(20) of title 8.

(Pub. L. 92–225, title III, § 319, formerly § 324, as added Pub. L. 94–283, title I, § 112(2), May 11, 1976, 90 Stat. 493; renumbered § 319, Pub. L. 96–187, title I, § 105(5), Jan. 8, 1980, 93 Stat. 1354; amended Pub. L. 107–155, title III, §§ 303, 317, Mar. 27, 2002, 116 Stat. 96, 109.)
Since Trump and/or Trump Jr received no moneys from the Russians, the law you quoted is irrelevant. Nowhere in that law is there a prohibition from receiving information from a foreign service or agent. If the law contained such a proviso, then the DNC would be culpable as they paid foreign agents to manufacture information that was supposed to be harmful to Trump.

All you need is evidence to back up your claim. Where is it? Oh wait, there is none.

It is understandable that you want it to be true. It's necessary to maintain the Resistance delusional rationale. Just keep making things up to attack Trump, that's soooooo persuasive.
