b. Criminal Bribery, 18 U.S.C. § 201

 

Although President Trump’s actions need not rise to the level of a criminal violation to justify impeachment, his conduct here was criminal. In this section we address the federal statute banning bribery; in the next section we address the wire fraud statute. Both of these laws underscore the extent to which Congress and the American people have broadly condemned the use of a public position of trust for personal gain. As this Committee observed decades ago, “[n]othing is more corrosive to the fabric of good government than bribery.”681 The federal anti-bribery statute imposes up to fifteen years’ (P. 120)

You are  the  #2  stupidest  person  on this  forum.     No one  has ever disputed this   ranking.   It is long certified.  Your posting  history is a clinical record of  dumbness so profound that it rivals Fenix.

 

You lack facts,   you lack shame and you are  persistent  in your rigor of advertising  your  lack of  intellect.    Well done.

"Starting with the federal anti-bribery statute, criminal bribery occurs when a public official (1) “demands [or] seeks” (2) “anything of value personally,” (3) “in return for being influenced in the performance of any official act.”684 Additionally, the public official must carry out these actions (4) “corruptly.”685 We address the four statutory elements in turn."
