I think solicitation is what underscores collusion.
A foreign national shall not, directly or indirectly, make a contribution or a donation of money or other thing of value, or expressly or impliedly promise to make a contribution or a donation, in connection with any Federal, State, or local election.
The Russian was supposed to offer information not money or assets and furthermore there was no mention of any sort of monetary exchange for the information. Can you cite where it is illegal to receive free information from a foreign national?

Didn't I say yesterday there was something coming down the pike?
Didn't I say I thought yesterday's leak was a defensive move to get ahead of something?
I thought it might have been a recording of the meeting.
It was these emails.
They don't let damaging # like this leak unless they need to start a conversation of explanation that their base will believe. Soften the blow, say nothing to see here, move along. Call it a nothing burger talk about Clinton or Obama or Loretta Lynch or anything else but this which is nothing so don't talk about this.

yea sorry that won't work in court. You are welcome to get the ball rolling though if you are so certain, you can't lose after all with that argument right? Money well spent that will be reimbursed when you win
The statute in question is 52 USC 30121, 36 USC 510 — the law governing foreign contributions to US campaigns.
There are two key passages that apply here. This is the first: A foreign national shall not, directly or indirectly, make a contribution or a donation of money or other thing of value, or expressly or impliedly promise to make a contribution or a donation, in connection with any Federal, State, or local election. The crucial phrase here is “other thing of value,” legal experts tell me. It means that the law extends beyond just cash donations. Foreigners are also banned from providing other kinds of contributions that would be the functional equivalent of a campaign donation, just provided in the form of services rather than goods. Like, say, damaging information the Russian government collected about Hillary Clinton.
