FEC Hit With Lawsuit Over Ignoring Civil Complaint Accusing Hillary, DNC in $84 Million Money Laundering Scheme
According to a lawsuit filed Monday, Hillary Clinton’s camp and the DNC are being accused of using state chapters as strawmen to launder approximately $84 million in an effort to evade campaign donation limits and the Federal Election Commission ignored complaints exposing this corruption, Fox News reported.
This is the SECOND FEC complaint against Hillary’s camp for finance violations, so where’s the FBI raid of Hillary Clinton and her lawyers?
Fox News reported:
The Committee to Defend the President (CDP), a political action committee formally known as Stop Hillary PAC, filed its complaint with the FEC in December 2017 with the claims that the Hillary Victory Fund (HVF) solicited cash from big-name donors, and allegedly sent that money through state chapters and back to the DNC before ending up with the Clinton campaign.
As first reported by Fox News at the time, the CDP alleges in its complaint that about $84 million was funneled illegally from the DNC through state party chapters and back into the war chest of the Clinton campaign. The political action committee claims that even though the FEC acknowledged receipt of the complaint and claimed that an investigation would be conducted, the needle has barely moved.
“The Clinton machine has escaped accountability for its illegal practices for far too long,” Ted Harvey, CDP chairman, said to Fox News. “After months of review, the FEC has refused to address the Clintons’ $84 million money laundering scheme that violated several campaign finance laws.”
CDP counsel Dan Backer points to a SCOTUS case that first recognized this exact practice as illegal.
CDP counsel Dan Backer said the scheme was a flagrant violation of a Supreme Court ruling that determined such moves were illegal — and broke FEC campaign contribution rules which state that an individual can contribute only $2,700 directly to a presidential campaign.[SCOTUS] first recognized these practices were illegal when it ruled in a 2014 case involving Shaun McCutcheon, a businessman and electrical engineer from suburban Birmingham, Ala., who created the Conservative Action Fund PAC. McCutcheon filed suit against the FEC challenging federal campaign contribution limits. It was Backer who assisted in filing the suit.
This FEC complaint parallels Donna Brazile’s account outlined in her explosive book, ‘Hacks’ where the former interim DNC Chairwoman alleges Hillary took complete control over the DNC.
Remember, Hillary Clinton and the DNC were hit with their first FEC complaint in late October for hiding the Russia dossier payment.
Today, Campaign Legal Center (CLC) filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) alleging the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign committee violated campaign finance law. They failed to accurately disclose the purpose and recipient of payments for the dossier of research alleging connections between then-candidate Donald Trump and Russia, effectively hiding these payments from public scrutiny, contrary to the requirements of federal law.
KGB FBI agents raided the office and home of Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen alleging a campaign finance violation over a $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels.
Yet, here we have an $84 MILLION money laundering scheme involving Hillary Clinton and the DNC and no FBI raid, no indictments, no one is in prison. Truly unbelievable.
