Influencing people by illicit gifts, very commonly of money.

Official narrative

Bribery is generally illegal, and distinct from legal payments for good and services rendered.

Concerns

Bribery can easily be disguised as payment for services rendered. In 2013, Hillary Clinton was paid $675,000 for 3 speeches to Goldman Sachs.[1][2]

Arms deals

Bribery seems to be a regular part of international arms deals, such as Al Yamamah.

Drugs deals

In 2019, US billionaire John Kapoor "was found guilty of running a wide-ranging scheme to bribe doctors nationwide by retaining them to act as speakers at sham events at restaurants ostensibly meant to educate clinicians about its fentanyl spray, Subsys."[3]
