ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Federal Election Commission (FEC) records indicate that the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign illegally laundered $84 million. Yet mainstream media took no notice.

Gary Gensler, the chief financial officer of the Clinton campaign, said the Democratic Party was “fully under the control of the Clinton campaign The campaign had the DNC on life support, giving it money every month to meet its basic expenses, while the campaign was using the party as a fundraising clearinghouse.” In essence, the contributions qualified as donations to the Clinton campaign for purposes of federal campaign finance law, and when properly accounted for, exceeded the legal contribution limits. Thus, based on the 2014 Supreme Court ruling in McCutcheon v. FEC, Mrs. Clinton and the Democrats violated the law.

The Supreme Court stated: “Lest there be any confusion, a joint fundraising committee is simply a mechanism for individual committees to raise funds collectively, not to circumvent base limits or earmarking rules. Under no circumstances may a contribution to a joint fundraising committee result in an allocation that exceeds the contribution limits applicable to its constituent parts; the committee is in fact required to return any excess funds to the contributor.”

Mrs. Clinton and the Democrats broke the law in their campaign finance scheme, but the mainstream media are too busy generating “bogus” news against President Trump to cover the story.
