9. The Candidate

It would be a crime if the pay-for-play bribe was made by a U.S. presidential candidate. Since evidence suggest he was already the GOP candidate in June, 2016, this would indeed make it illegal for a U.S. presidential candidate to offer a 50 million penthouse to Putin in exchange for the rights to build a skyscraper, Trump Tower Moscow, which would be a money-making enterprise for his company and his own personal gain. Remember, this wouldn't merely be a Trump hotel, it would be a skyscraper housing some of the most expensive condo-apartments and offices in the world. Trump would profit literally hundreds of millions of dollars. The 50 million offer to Putin would be to lure other mega-wealthy Russian oligarchs into buying properties within the skyscraper.
