FEC Still Refuses To Investigate Alleged $84 Million Clinton Campaign Money Laundering
The Federalist ^ | February 13, 2019 | By Margot Cleveland

Posted on 02/13/2019 11:36:18 AM PST by Oldeconomybuyer

Tuesday evening the Committee to Defend the President (CDP) filed a motion in a D.C. federal court seeking to supplement the complaint it had filed against the Federal Election Committee (FEC) in April 2018. In its original complaint, the CDP alleged that the agency responsible for enforcing campaign-finance law failed to act on an administrative complaint the CDP had filed with the FEC. That complaint charged that, during the 2016 presidential election, Democrats illegally funneled approximately $84 million through the Hillary Victory Fund to the Democratic National Committee (DNC), which then illegally coordinated with the Hillary Clinton campaign.

Clinton, the DNC, and participating state Democratic committees establishing the Hillary Victory Fund (HVF) as a joint fundraising committee to accept contributions from large donors. To comply with the law, the HVF needed to transfer the donations to the specified recipients, whether the Clinton campaign, down-ticket Democrats, the DNC, or state committees.

FEC records the CDP reviewed revealed a problem, however: HVF reported several large contributions as received and on the same day (or occasionally the following day) the DNC recorded receiving the same amount of funds from a state Democratic committee, but the state Democratic committees never reported receiving the contribution from the HVF or dispersing the funds to the DNC.

Further, the FEC’s inaction holds significance far beyond the old news of Clinton’s failed 2016 presidential run: “The 2020 cycle has already started, and top-tier national Democratic contenders are already lining up,” Backer notes, adding that “Mark Elias of Perkins Coie, who represented both Clinton and the DNC during the 2016 campaign, is signed up with Kamala Harris.”

Another branch of the swamp. Honestly, it would have been easier to burn it down.

The Swamp protects it’s self. Remember the Millions of Tax Payer monies spent bailing out members of CONgress from sexual harassment charges or WORSE? No, most don’t anymore...

It's just $84 million. Petty cash when it comes to Presidential campaigns.

De minimis non curat lex probably applies here.

$84,000,000 is the kind of illegal money that guarantees you’ll never see prosecution. It is used to feed those who would otherwise judge you. Never bite the hand that feeds you in the swamp.

Why hasn’t Trump pushed this. It is a federal agency whose members are appointed by the president. There are members whose terms have expired who continue to serve. They were appointed by Bush for crying out loud.

Come one DJT!!!!! Heck, I would do it.

Do they have the right to decline to investigate charges brought to their attention? What are they there for, if that is the case?

Somehow the candidates seem to get rich quick. Someone needs to watch campaign spending.
Oh, that’s the FEC’s job? Never mind.

If there are complaints about the FEC membership — take it up with President Trump. Check this out — all of the members’ terms have expired and they haven’t been replaced. Maybe Trump is OK with them.

"..They will never investigate a Clinton for anything.."

It really wouldn't surprise me if one-of-these-days some terminally diagnosed individual took one for the team IRT the untouchables.
People get tired of that chit and it's soooooo obvious.

The FEC shouldn’t even exist; “campaign finance reform” is abridgment of the freedom of the press, neither more nor less.

The freedom of the press is the right of the people to spend money (literally on ink and paper, but in principle on any technology) as a way of communicating opinion. If you don’t have the right to use any amount of your own money you choose, to buy or rent a printing press, your freedom of the press is abridged.
