house Bill H.R. 2353

Should Political Campaigns Have a Duty to Refuse & Report Campaign Assistance Offered by Foreign Gov’ts?

Argument in favor

As the Mueller report makes clear, it’s necessary to create more protection against foreign interference in political campaigns. Creating an affirmative duty to refuse and report election campaign assistance from foreign governments and their agents serves this purpose.

Yes. Any contacts by foreign governments, foreign business interests, and other foreign agents should be prohibited in elections. And, while we are at it, dark money groups like Citizens United should be required to reveal donors so we know who is funding these candidates.

Yes. Political campaigns must refuse help from foreign entities and they must report any such offers to FBI and National security professionals. !!! Anyone who actually cares about our country knows this and will do this - but since you have corrupt, treasoning traitor trump types running for office- it needs to be spelled out in black letter law. Now.

Absolutely, foreign entities have NO business trying to buy influence. I would extend this to stop corporate entities as well. I do not want to be part of a country “of the PAC, by the PAC, and for the PAC”

Argument opposed

The Federal Election Commission already prohibits political campaigns from accepting help from foreign nationals, so there’s no need for this bill.

A bill to waste time they already have laws in place. Just some congress person trying to trick voters in to thinking they are actually doing something instead of actually fixing real problems

Hilarious! Democrats don’t seem too concerned about a phony Russian dossier to help the Hillary campaign. This bill is just more political garbage.

Redundant law. Look at the Nay description in Countable. Can you just affirm existing law instead of creating a new law?

    Yes. I agree. But I find it hard to believe that this isn’t already required.

    Obviously. We don’t need foreign money influence in our democratic process.

    A real American would have gone straight to the fbi when offered that help from s foreign government. Russia offered the same help to Adlai Stevenson back in the 50s and he went straight to the fbi to report it. Of course when dealing with trump and his administration you are dealing with criminals who have no love for our country, only in lining their own pockets.

    i believe this is already how it is supposed to be. The Dump, however, seems to believe nothing can affect him. So we need to be in his face with this, in order for his feeble mind to comprehend. This should be for domestic contributions also. All PACS MUST DISCLOSE WHO THEIR DONORS ARE. NO MORE DARK MONEY. NO MORE LOBBYISTS OR THEIR MONEY. ONE POT, SPLIT WITH ALL!

    It would make it just a bit clearer to DJT & Co and future dictators such as him that we really mean it when we say we do not want foreign influence in our elections and would deny him and those involved in his campaign any plausible deniability.

    Since this administration did not recognize the laws in place, we have to make it clear that it is illegal to receive aid from foreign governments in regards to any election

    Our government is decided by the people of the United States. Not the outside. For elected officials and those running to accept money from foreign bodies is completely and utterly criminal and unconstitutional.
