Why don't we just see if we can out-bribe the Russians?

It works with incompetent CEOs (golden parachutes).
Here's my idea. We offer Trump $10 Billion to resign, leave the country forever and shut up. Pence gets $1 Billion, McConnell $500,000,000.

Trust me, it would be a bargain that would pay for itself the first week.

1. Yes,

Nice idea, but that's assuming that this country is not already a big cash cow for said individuals.

I have no idea what their net worth is or how much they are making in various ways from being in such positions. I assume it is very lucrative or they would have picked other options or gone through a revolving door. I am also pretty sure that the spirit of public service, (chuckle) is not a prime motivation for altruistic, selfless service.

2. Unless your planning on getting rid of the sanctions

No bribe you ever offer to them would be as valuable as that.

3. If we were getting rid of Trump for sure, we could probably raise that with a bake sale. n/t
