Trump’s Attempt To Buy GOP Senators’ Loyalty Backfires As Law Expert Drops The Hammer: ‘Could Be Bribery’

Donald Trump promised Republicans in the Senate that he would shower them with campaign cash if they promised to help him fight impeachment.

According to a report by Politico, Trump’s campaign is asking for donations to key Republican Senators who are running in next year’s election.

Now, according to Rick Hansen, a law professor at UC Irvine and expert in campaign finance law, Trump’s attempt to buy Republican Senators’ loyalty could be a federal crime.

“Offering a thing of value (campaign money) in exchange for an official act (a Senator voting for or against impeachment) could be bribery,” Hansen noted.

Bribery is a felony offense.
