    "Between Bernie Sanders and the Australians, there was collusion.

    While the Russia investigation continues to swirl around President Donald Trump and the members of his entourage, the Federal Election Commission (FEC) has confirmed another instance of illegal meddling in the election: Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign illegally accepted contributions from the Australian Labor Party, which paid for volunteers to fly across the globe to volunteer on his campaign, according to a ruling filed earlier this month.

    The volunteers, who were participating in a government-funded education program, even got $8,000 in stipends from their native country to campaign for the popular Vermont senator in his 2016 run for the White House.

    The FEC ruled that the Sanders campaign accepted about $25,000 in in-kind donations from the Australians. Bernie’s been ordered to fork over $14,500 in civil penalties for violating campaign law.
    Sanders’ campaign staffers told the FEC they knew that some of the Australian volunteers were getting stipends, but they thought — “mistakenly,” the FEC has pointed out in their ruling — that the volunteers were doing legal work. After initially pushing back against the FEC, the Sanders campaign has agreed to pay up.”

    TL;DR:
    7 Australians volunteered for Bernie Sanders' campaign and the FEC concluded this act of treason must be punished.

    Wow. So this means Bernie could legally be put to death (treason)?

    If all Sanders has to do is pay a fine, this proves nothing will happen to Trump, even if collusion is proved.

    Put Bernie to death?

    He died decades ago.

    No matter, his fried chicken will live on! 😵

    Gee, where is the FBI and DOJ on this? I'm sure they will see that justice is done for the little socialist. LMAO!

    it paints a revealing picture when it comes to establishment politics. Sanders accepted 7 australians as volunteers for the simple reason that 7 individuals wanted to lend a hand to the best of their abilities. Those australians weren't millionaires. They weren't spies. They simply had their plane tickets paid for by an australian social program.
    For this the FEC fined the Sanders campaign.

    Then you have emails of Trump junior brazenly admitting to collusion.
    Officials in Clinton campaign knowingly accepting direct donations from foreign groups.

    Americans have become accustomed to corruption and they don't even feel ashamed by it.

    I really hate to burst your bubble, but Hillary colluded with the Ukraine as well

    https://www.politico.com/story/2017/01/ukraine-sabotage-trump-backfire-233446

    The Ukraine came out to question the mental stability of Trump in support of Hillary

    Now Trump and Sanders might be held accountable (I doubt it), but Hillary never will be.

    That is a given.

    What is business as usual seems to be breaking news to you.
