First ever successful DOJ civil enforcement for Foreign Agent Registration Act violations. Radio broadcaster took $1.4M to air Russian propaganda.
How big is this? How many in the media secretly took money from foreign agents? #ButNothingsHappening
What this does is it allows the DOJ to use the court to prove with a preponderance of the evidence (more than 50%) that a person or organization is required to register as a foreign agent. Instead of proving beyond a reasonable doubt that they violated FARA law at criminal trial.
Who could this apply too?
Everyone who acted as a foreign agent: media companies, reporters, lobbyists, PR firms, non-profit foundations, think tanks, political activists & parties.

Are you starting to see what is happening?

The DOJ now has the receipts for money laundering...
I hope Washington Post is next. They earned millions publishing a propaganda section called "Russia Behind the Headlines"! That makes them Russian government agents trying to influence US policy or political opinion. They publish Chinese propaganda too. freebeacon.com/culture/wapo-s…
Many of the media companies face exposure for similar efforts, printing foreign propaganda as either advertisements or as 'fake news' handed to their reporters by PR groups such as Fusion GPS.
So Fusion GPS was working for the Russians & the Venezuelans: Civil action to get a judge to order them to register as Russian agents & Venezuelan agents.

What happens to collusion as members of the conspiracy to frame Trump get ordered by judges to register as Russian agents?
The Clinton Foundations own lawyers argued that they were acting as unregistered foreign agents. Remember DOJ would not have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt they had intent to violate the law. Just show CF should have registered & a judge can order it.
Now the CF & all the others can be completely honest in their FARA registration listing everything they have ever done for these foreign governments, or they can lie about it & get hit on process crimes for lying about being foreign agents. Not a good look!
Foreign governments have been hiring PR & lobbying firms like Fusion GPS for decades to sway Washington.

Now all of those links can be exposed and the FBI that the Dems have defended as non-partisan can provide the evidence to reasonable prosecutors at DOJ!
DOJ will then let the courts make the findings of fact as to someone's status as an unregistered foreign agent. With the FBI waiting to pounce if they file false information on the work & payments they got from foreign governments & front groups.
How long can the Democrats continue to rely upon collusion, as their institutions get ordered to register as foreign agents? They have spent 3 years declaring collusion to be treason, a 'treason' that a judge can find them 'guilty' of with only a preponderance of the evidence.
This also follows on a media rule by the Trump FCC, requiring broadcasters for foreign interests to file documentation on their relationships. All building up to identify who is pushing propaganda for hostile states... #ButNothingsHappening opensecrets.org/news/2019/05/f…
As I often discuss, people are looking at small potatoes. "When will Strzok go to prison for taking $125 tickets" but miss changes that will force the entire Swamp to stop taking foreign money for lobbying, PR, media coverage, & election influence.
People are always making mountains out of the mole hills, while missing the shifting of tectonic plates & failing to see entire mountain ranges being eroded away.
