Skip to comments.FEC Still Refuses To Investigate Alleged $84 Million Clinton Campaign Money Laundering

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 FECs inaction holds significance far beyond the old news of Clintons 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.

If ever there was a campaign scum lawyer who should be locked up it is: Mark Elias of Perkins Coie.
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...
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.
Nobody wants to upset the apple cart. Or see Arkancide come to themselves and family.
The Clinton Roadblock is in full force.
They will never investigate a Clinton for anything....................
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.
Infested by swamp losers. Typical of (m)any of the WDC governmental organizations. Losers all.
yea I am sick of that side of th trump presidency, as much as I love our prez it disgust me to hear all talk and no action, abnd the bs hold your cards is just stupid, if they have proof, show it shut up and lets see if the DOJ worls anymore..no more games, law or none
Well, they are kind of busy badgering people into process crimes and setting up swat raids they would subject terrorists to
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.

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.
Take them to court.
The FEC shouldnt 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 dont 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.
