(National Sentinel) Corruption: A group supportive of President Donald J. Trump has filed suit in federal court against the Federal Election Commission for allegedly looking the other way while the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee laundered $84 million through state-level parties to avoid campaign finance reporting laws.
“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,” Fox News reported.
The CDP complaint filed with the U.S. District Court of the District of Columbia alleges that $84 million was funneled using this technique to purposely bypass campaign finance laws, The Western Journal noted further.
Then-interim DNC campaign chairwoman Donna Brazile, who led the party during Clinton’s unsuccessful 2016 presidential bid, wrote about the practice in her recent 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.
The court filing provides details about how the CDP was able to track the practice throughout the campaign utilizing publicly accessible FEC records.
“On the very same day each of these transfers supposedly occurred, or occasionally the very next day, every single one of those state parties purportedly contributed all of those funds to the DNC,” the complaint reads.
Ted Harvey, CDP chairman, told Fox News why his group filed its lawsuit.
“The Clinton machine has escaped accountability for its illegal practices for far too long,” Harvey said. “After months of review, the FEC has refused to address the Clintons’ $84 million money laundering scheme that violated several campaign finance laws.”
The CDP is calling on the federal court to exercise its statutory authority under the Federal Election Campaign Act.
“We urge the Court to step in and demand action from the FEC,” Harvey said. “The American people demand that our most corrupt political figures answer for their transgressions.”
The U.S. Supreme Court has already determined the Clinton campaign scheme to be an unlawful means to circumvent the $2,700 individual contribution limit, The Western Journal reported.
