What would a better protected election look like? Well, for starters, Congress can simply clarify the obligation of a candidate and his or her campaign staff to report contacts with foreign nationals seeking to interfere with a presidential election. Existing law is clearly not adequate in this area. Just ask President Donald Trump whose response to an interviewer’s question about whether he would accept such foreign help without alerting the FBI — um, shall we say, evolved — over the last week. Americans can now be confident that their president would talk to someone about something including, maybe, possibly, the FBI, should the opportunity arise. You get the idea.
