During remarks to the press outside the White House Thursday morning, as Common Dreams reported earlier, the president offered no evidence as he publicly accused former Vice President Joe Biden of corruption but nonetheless asked the governments of both China and Ukraine to investigate his allegations. 

“Let’s be very clear what’s happening here: Trump is openly asking foreign governments to interfere in the 2020 presidential election against his political rivals,” said journalist Ari Berman. “And Republicans are allowing it to happen by doing nothing about impeachment or election security.”

The FEC has not met since August due to a lack of quorum and the disinterest of President Donald Trump in filling the panel’s empty seat, as Common Dreams reported at the time, legal watchdogs warned that leaving the commission so toothless just as the 2020 presidential campaign ramped up was courting “disaster.”

Despite diminished enforcement capacity or the ability to even to hold meetings, the commission chair is able to draw attention to the letter of the law.
