Now you move the goal post again; it isn't just a foreign agent, its meeting undisclosed with spies.
So I assume Bill meeting with Puting doesn't count, because Putin isnt a spy.
Or how about manafort working with the Podestas?
Or how about the foundation not disclosing donations from rusains involved in the uranium one deal.
Or how about paying a foreign agent who was a spy, Steele, to then collude with Russians to get dirt on Trump.
Or how about hillary team meeting with Ukrainian officials undisclosed?
Nope, none of that matters. even though here we have proof of money changing hands, even though we have proof it was for the expressed purpose of getting dirt on their opponent, it doesn't meet your initial critieria of meeting with foreign agents.
I look forward to seeing how you will move the goal post next. Why don't you just cut to the chase and say Trump and his team are always bad, Hillary and hers are always good.
I will look them up.
I already showed that Hillary signed a letter she wouldn't allow her foundation to even give the appearance of wrong doing, which clearly it has.
Why don't you cite the exact laws that the investigation into trumps team is looking for?
Those laws will also apply to Hillarys team.
Sp Putin doesn't meet that criteria? Ok got it.
Oh and hilarrys team lied about paying for the dossier. So I assume you now favor an investigation into this
Right, I'm one for rooting out corruption across the board.

Perhaps, but even some of us liberals are thinking there might be more evidence for Russia/Dems/Clinton connections than with Trump. That does matter you know. I'm still waiting for solid evidence of trump collusion with Russia.
This is the point.
I still think that there is shadiness with people like Manafort. If he or any other Trump connected person, even trump himself are guilty, then prosecute them to the same extent.
My contention is just that we should hold all sides to the same standard when it comes to reasons to investigate and the voracity of the investigations.
It seems clear to me that this Uranium One deal and Podesta group lobbying at least meet the threshold that was given for the special investigator into Trump.
Therefore we should see an investigation of at least the same power as that for Trumps admin.
Yet some of the people that screamed loudest about Russian influence are fighting tooth and nail against that, including Hillary.
This is what is ridiculous.

What is this letter that you keep harping about that Clinton signed? When? Where? Why?
Give us a link.

No. It doesn't count because Bill did not play an official role in the campaign.
Has that been proven?
That's the foundation's problem, not Hillary's. She did not have anything to do with the Foundation during her time at the SD.
They paid Steele directly? Well, that's a new one. I thought they paid Fusion GPS, an American company.
Are you referring to Chalupa? If so, she was a DNC rep and she openly admitted that she did what she did own her own. She shared it with the DNC and it went no where.
Of course it's not the same as actually meeting with foreign agents. It's those small difference that make all the difference.
Why do you have to be so ridiculous?

Did I miss Hillary’s signature on the agreement you linked?
THE MEMO OF UNDERSTANDING
The “Memo of Understanding” that Hillary Clinton reached with the Obama administration had two main objectives:
-- to prohibit President Clinton from soliciting funds or accepting foreign-government contributions to the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI);
-- to disclose foreign countries that INCREASED their commitments to all Clinton Foundation entities, or that became a NEW contributor
(The memo of understanding was signed by Valerie Jarrett and Bruce Lindsey of the Clinton Foundation. It also was under supervision by John Kerry and Dick Lugar of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

NetworkDude: I can tell by your coming down on the right side of many issues that you are a genuine American... That is, not a troll or sputnik. How does it feel to receive nine stars and six flags from anonymous, silent members within half an hour of posting a domestic political snipe at six or seven o'clock in the morning? Does it ring any alarm bells? It certainly would if it happened to me.
You have officially jumped the shark. Unbelievable.
Unreal. This is exactly what I am talking about. The foundation doesnt count because hillary didnt have connections to it. Bill clinton doesnt count because he wasnt involved in the campaign.
You are being ridiculous.
So as long as you use a middle man, you can pay any foreign country for collusion?
This is absurd.
So a DNC person admitted to collusing with a foreign country.
trunmp kr.s meeting went no where, but that didnt stop people for screaming about it.
In fact, do you have any evidence of anyone involved with trump having a meeting with foreign agents that went anywhere?
Hillarys husband met with Putin, and you don't consider that applicable here. Nuff said about your credibility.
Me ridiculous. You are the one saying Bill clintons meetings dont matter because he wasnt involved ion the campaign, and the clinton foundation shouldnt be tied to hillary.
You are setting the bar for ridiculous.

It is really funny to watch people's contortions trying to

You would think she was Mother Theresa to some.
Although, I just read that even a year later many
staff members are still being paid from her campaign.
When one donates to the DNC, one is merely
donating to fake news.
