Department of Justice indicts 8 for funneling foreign money to Clinton & others

U.S. Department of Justice has indicted 8 individuals for illegally funneling foreign money into Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and other political groups. George Nader, who has for decades hobnobbed with political elites and became a key Mueller witness, and Allied Wallet CEO Ahmad ’Andy’ Khawaja are accused of sending millions to PACs and hiding Nader as its source.

Although the summary of this story focuses narrowly on donations to the Clinton campaign, this group of people are mere opportunists exploiting the U.S. political system. They thought Clinton would surely win and therefore supported her to gain influence. They supported tons of PACs and candidates from both major parties. When Trump won they refocused their financial efforts to his inaugural fund. This got them inauguration tickets and an Oval Office visit for the main criminal. He then worked to build a relationship between the Trump Administration and Saudi Arabia. These people and everyone like them should never be allowed to do business again. Furthermore, this kind of crap wouldn't even be possible if we enacted transparency laws and repealed Citizens United to protect our democracy. I would also argue that we should end privately funded campaigns altogether. Money (aka greed) is antithetical to democracy.
