Clinton not only displayed her complete lack of integrity in having the fake Russia dossier created to smear President Trump, she broke campaign finance laws that…
A new violation of the law by Crooked Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee has surfaced with her admission that they financed the fictitious Fusion GPS Russia dossier.
According to a complaint filed Wednesday with the Federal Election Commission, the Clinton campaign broke campaign finance laws by failing to disclose payments made to fund the document’s creation.
The complaint was filed by the nonprofit Campaign Legal Center. It alleges that the Clinton campaign and Democrats hid the payments from public scrutiny in direct violation of the requirements under federal law. Campaigns and party committees are mandated to disclose all expenditures, their purpose and the recipient.
Adav Noti, senior director of trial litigation and strategy at the Campaign Legal Center and also a former FEC official, said, “By filing misleading reports, the DNC and Clinton campaign undermined the vital public information role of campaign disclosures.”
He said, “Voters need campaign disclosure laws to be enforced so they can hold candidates accountable for how they raise and spend money. The FEC must investigate this apparent violation and take appropriate action.”
It would be ludicrous for the Clintons and Democrats to claim that they weren’t aware of the violation, which was conveniently occurring on their most politically precarious dirty tricks operation. They had no choice if they wanted to keep it secret, and it would have remained secret if Crooked Hillary had won.
Clinton lawyer Marc Elias hired the firm to create dirt where none existed in their flailing effort to defeat Mr. Trump. Even with that and other fabricated smear packages, they and their filthy political machine were still unable to defeat the America first outsider. The funding continued into October of 2016, just days before the election.
Brendan Fischer, director of federal and FEC reform at CLC pointed out, “Questions about who paid for this dossier are the subject of intense public interest, and this is precisely the information that FEC reports are supposed to provide.”
He added, “Payments by a campaign or party committee to an opposition research firm are legal, as long as those payments are accurately disclosed. But describing payments for opposition research as ‘legal services’ is entirely misleading and subverts the reporting requirements.”
Of course it does, it was intended to do exactly that. This is the Clintons, after all.
