A properly functioning gov't engages in diplomatic relations w/ foreign gov'ts. Diplomacy is handled thru the US State Dept. using ambassadors who follow standard procedures. By turning to #Giuliani & his goons, #Trump privatized US diplomacy for his profit. That is #corruption.
Another way of putting it is that Trump made the benefits of US foreign policy accessible through pay-for-play. That is an abuse of power, which is a high crime and an impeachable offense.
Republicans rightly condemned Sec. of State Clinton for making US foreign-policy benefits available to nations like Saudi Arabia after they made generous donations to the Clinton Foundation. That was pay for play. Both Trump & Hillary are guilty of it & both deserve condemnation.
