I've lived in half a dozen countries in the course of my now long life, and I learned to speak the languages of most, following the news. Never have journalists -- or politicians -- claimed it was incumbent upon a citizen to report overtures from foreign countries to the special services.
America, of course is different. We're 'exceptional' because we ride high on the wings of democracy -- higher, needless to say, than any other country. And our exceptionalism gives us the right to tell the rest of the world (mostly consisting of 'deplorables') how to live and what to die for.
