    Straight out of "The Americans"

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018...utors-say.html

    The 29-year-old Russian woman accused of covertly working as a foreign agent while living in the United States allegedly offered to have sex with an unnamed individual in return for a job in the United States, prosecutors said Tuesday.

    And that's not all. According to new court filings, Maria Butina allegedly “gained access” to "an extensive network of U.S. persons in positions to influence political activities in the United States" by living with and having a personal relationship with another individual.
    Not sure why they won't name her "benefactor".

    The word is allegedly. Un named individual, again with the allegedly--“gained access” to "an extensive network of U.S. persons in positions to influence political activities in the United States" by living with and having a personal relationship with another individual.

    These are prosecutors saying allegedly. Meaning they don't have sheit. Just rumors and innuendo.
    If they had proof they would name them.

    No dumbass...that is not how our system works...again...go back to HS and re-take American govt. If that is too difficult for you, go watch a few episodes of Law & Order or Andy Griffith...

    Prosecutors can only say "alleged" and "Allegedly" because the person has not been convicted.

    Is this Collusion we keep hearing about?
    Saying we are a country of "Immigrants" is an insult to our ancestors.

    You're thinking of "accuse". Accuse is used on the basis of reasonable proof.
    To allege requires no reasonable burden of proof. Until proof is furnished, it's still speculation.

    Ah you MUST stop using that word - they think "meddling" and "collusion" mean the same thing.
