Federal Law tried declare illegal ALL corporate participation in the marketplace of ideas regarding politics. The SC found that unconstitutional. Federal Law also declares Foreign fiscal influence in politics illegal. That declaration remains the law of the land. No case has been brought before them to determine if in fact any foreign interest has sought to or indeed managed to influence US elections. Judicial restraint demands they remain silent until such a 'case or controversy' arises.
Would it not be easy for a foreign corporation to incorporate a subsidiary corporation in the United States? And, why would not that non-foreign subsidiary corporation of the foreign corporation be recognized as a citizen with first amendment protection?
