    It was wrong when then-candidate Trump told Russia to look for the 'missing' email from Hillary Clinton's server and it is wrong now. Any aid that a candidate receives from a foreign government serves to make that candidate indebted to that foreign government. Even if the foreign government was a close ally (say, Britain) even the appearance of indebtedness would have a detrimental effect on our ability to transact foreign policy effectively. Governing is not real estate development and the same rules do not apply; also, the same consequences do not apply as we are talking about national security and not a private fortune.
