Bills to Protect U.S. Elections from Foreign Meddling are Struggling, Senators Say

3 posts in this topic

Here it is June. Election in November.  Oh well. It's only a country, right? I'd think Donny would be out front leading the charge on these bills seeing as how there's no collusion. 

Bipartisan bills aimed at protecting U.S. elections from foreign meddling face unexpected opposition, prompting members of the Senate Judiciary Committee to appeal to Trump administration officials for help Tuesday.

Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, complained that some American businesses oppose his bill, which would strengthen enforcement of a law requiring lobbyists for foreign governments to register with the Department of Justice.

Grassley's bill, the Disclosing Foreign Influence Act, would require Justice to develop a comprehensive strategy to improve enforcement of the Foreign Agents Registration Act. Companies don't want to have to register as foreign agents and oppose a provision that would require international businesses with U.S. subsidiaries to register.

Why would Republicans want to block a faction that is totally in the bag for them just because they are foreigners and considered by some to be this country's greatest enemy?

Perhaps the Democrats can tap into the resources of the western world in support of them.

I have no idea what's happening with republicans. My theory is the CO2 levels from climate change are wreaking havoc with their tiny brains. It's only a matter of time before we are all eating bananas or drinking vodka or both.
