Article II Section 4 of the Constitution states that Bribery is a reason for impeachment and removal from office for all Civial Officers of the United States

The Supreme Court of the United States in "Citizens United" found that corporations could give/donate unlimited funds to the campaign funds of members of congress.

However, as of recent, those "generous donations" have been used as a threat against members of congress in order to achieve passage of legislation. They call it "Primarying". This "quid pro quo" constitutes Bribery or coercion. According to law, the offerer and acceptor of a bribe are both guilty of Bribery. Therefore anyone voicing or implying a threat of primarying is a Briber; such as: Steve Bannon, Grover Norquist, Koch Brothers, Mitch McConell, Paul Ryan and others.

This is false. Corporations are prohibited from giving to political campaigns.

Regarding Citizens United: It's clear we are not going to get either Congressional relief or from the Supreme Califate (excuse me, Court). However, relief could come from an open Constitutional Congress session and place limits and method for how politicians are funded. I would also recommend Term Limits for all offices including the Supreme Court. This one concept was a source of despaIr for our "democracy" for Thomas Jefferson and we are seeing the problem lifetime appointments to the Court(s) make. There are many other issues that changing times and attitudes could help resolve. Yes, let's "rock the boat"!

Don't forget George Soros and all those that donated to faux pax and now defunct Clinton Foundation.

The question is not if corporations are allowed to back political parties or not, it is about self interest.

It seems it's all racism, all the time w/the GOP...Neo-Nazi robocall hits Iowa on Molly Tibbett’s murder: “KILL THEM ALL. ” Richard Wolff drops by about the National Debt. Is it a disaster or an OK thing? Also - Trump & The National Enquirer - Is the Economy Here To Serve Us Or Are We Here to Serve the economy?
