Jim Himes on Trump Offering Penthouse to Putin: It Sure Looks Like a Bribe

‘Anything of value is offered to a foreign leader to ask for that leader’s help on something, that sure looks like a bribe’

RUSH EXCERPT:

HIMES: “Well, I guess we have to get the facts behind that. Obviously, if a penthouse — I don’t know the details oh of the story, because it’s just breaking. But if a very valuable penthouse, anything of value is offered to a foreign leader to ask for that leader’s help on something, that sure looks like a bribe. The story is just breaking, let’s see what happens. Stepping to the news we heard earlier today, there’s been a great deal made about whether it’s illegal for the president, when he’s the nominee, he’s not yet president of the united States, to have Michael Cohen working with a foreign government on his behalf. Look, the destales will need to come out as to whether there was any quid pro quo or anything that looked like a bribe. my God, in terms of inappropriate, that one 06 our chiefantagonists around the world would have the ability to dangle something in front of our president is disturbing.”
