Kirsters Baish| A lawsuit was brought against the Federal Electaion Commission (FEC), claiming that they ignored Hillary Clinton’s campaign the Democrat National Committee’s (DNC) laundering of roughly $84 million in donations towards the campaign in order to find their way around legal donation limits. If that’s not corruption, I don’t know what is.
A group called the Committee to Defend the President (CDP) filed the lawsuit, alleging that Hillary Clinton’s Hillary Victory Fund (HVF) sought out donations from some heavy hitters with deep pockets, asking them to send the money to the local Democrat Party groups rather than directly to Team Hillary. The donations were then sent to the DNC, who then sent them to Hillary’s campaign.
CDP, which used to be known as the Stop Hillary PAC, has claimed in the lawsuit that the FEC knew about the Clinton campaign’s idea and that they followed through with the scheme. They also noted that an investigation should be put into place in order to check all donations, however, nothing has happened yet, according to Fox News.
CDP chairman Ted Harvey explained to Fox News network, “The Clinton machine has escaped accountability for its illegal practices for far too long. After months of review, the FEC has refused to address the Clintons’ $84 million money laundering scheme that violated several campaign finance laws.”
There are claims that the FEC has violated the Federal Election Campaign Act within the lawsuit. The suit also called the lack of action on the part of the FEC “arbitrary, capricious, contrary to law, and an abuse of discretion.”
“We urge the Court to step in and demand action from the FEC. The American people demand that our most corrupt political figures answer for their transgressions,” the group demands.
The filing of the lawsuit has brought to light evidence that big donations were made specifically to the state Parties on purpose. However, on the same day the donations were made, the exact same amount of money was moved from these local party organizations to the national Democrat Party.
The twisted plan would allow large donors to sneak around federal campaign donation limits which are enforced by law. Instead of donating directly to Clinton, they could send their money to local organizations, then the money was sent to Clinton, and they almost got away with it… almost.
The FEC cited confidentiality rules and refused to comment on the case.
Western Journal reported:
Donna Brazile, who served as interim DNC campaign chair during Clinton’s run, wrote about the practice in her book, “Hacks.”
“Individuals who had maxed out their $2,700 contribution limit to the campaign could write an additional check for $353,400 to the Hillary Victory Fund—that figure represented $10,000 to each of the 32 states’ parties who were part of the Victory Fund agreement — $320,000 — and $33,400 to the DNC,” reads a passage from the book.
“The money would be deposited in the states first, and transferred to the DNC shortly after that. Money in the battleground states usually stayed in that state, but all the other states funneled that money directly to the DNC, which quickly transferred the money to (Clinton campaign headquarters in) Brooklyn,” Brazile added.
