Soliciting foreign help in 2016 campaign


In 2016 the Trump campaign solicited foreign aid from other countries besides Russia. It was reported at the time.and confirmed by the people he solicited. I wonder why nobody has mentioned it as a pattern considering the current impeachment discussions.

In 2016, Trump and his sons e-mailed British members of parliament soliciting aid for his US election campaign.
They targeted UK MP's who supported Brexit on the assumption that they shared a common view of governance with Trump. They also sent solicitation e-mails to elected representatives in Canada, Australia, and Iceland according to a BBC article.

Recipients considered it bizarre and rejected the solicitations. Even the Brits knew it was against US law.

The act of solicitation was illegal, even though it was rejected.
