Ask American political candidates this question.
I need you to ask every state and federal senator and representative, every governor – every politician you can get your hands on – if it’s okay for American political candidates to accept the aid of the Russian government to get elected. If they answer yes, you need to follow up with, “Have you?”
If – when – they indignantly reply “No!” you need to ask them why not, since it’s apparently okay, and it looks like the Russians are pretty good at getting folks elected.
Seriously, y’all gotta put these people in the corner and put the boots to’em (metaphorically speaking, of course) until they drop this garbage “collusion isn’t illegal/working with Russians is okay” defense they’re trotting out.
