Entertainer/Businessma n and Malaysian Financier Indicted for Conspiring to Make and Conceal Foreign and Conduit Contributions During 2012 U.S. Presidential Election

There have been articles in the past which seemed to indicate that the Obama campaign allowed loopholes to be used for the 2012 election donations, and in turn this allowed foreign countries/foreign individuals to donate to the Obama campaign.

Here is one such article.

Corruption: Exposing Barack Obama’s Illegal Foreign Campaign Money Loophole

Now we know that at least some foreigners, one of them is actually an American, were able to donate illegally to the Obama campaign for the 2012 elections. But I wonder how deep does the rabbit hole goes. Are there more of these "foreign donations" which the Obama campaign could have received in the 2012 election campaign? I guess we will have to wait and see. But it seems that these accusations have at least some merit despite left-wing sites like "snopes" claiming that this did not happen.

The Obama administration is colluding and letting foreign powers meddle in your country for a long time. He installed a corrupt system that’s still working, 3 years after he left office.

I hear people asking “if he’s corrupt why Trump hasn’t locked them up yet”, do you have any idea how hard it is to bring a case like this to court? To gather enough compelling evidence... Specially when they’re already known as people who destroy evidence and get away with it.

But seems like things are finally coming to light and justice will be served as coldest as possible.

I think foreign campaign contributions should be treated as espionage and an act of war.

However, we now live in a world (in the US), where corporations can make unlimited campaign contributions. Since the shares of said corporations can be owned by literally anyone...what difference does it make?
