Hillary for President Campaign laundered $85 million says Bernie's Campaign, FEC law suit
The Hillary Clinton Campaign for President laundered $84,880,278.20 leaving only $400,000 for its primary beneficiaries, State Democratic Political Party Committees.
A financial report accounting for every penny of contributions was submitted to the Federal Election Commission (FEC) on Monday in a 101-page lawsuit filed by The Committee to Defend the President.
The same complaint was made by the Bernie Sanders Campaign for President in a letter dated April 18th, 2016 to the Democratic National Committee (DNC).
In all, 40 Democratic state parties, and an undetermined number of individual “super donors” were scammed in order to circumvent federal contribution limits and earmarking restrictions. The other states had no Clinton fundraisers.
It cost a couple $343,400 to attend a Hillary fundraising event featuring George Clooney. He called the event, "an obscene amount of money."
Hillary Clinton told the donors their contribution would build “the party from the ground up … when our state parties are strong, we win. That’s what will happen.”
Six-figure donations were never passed through accounts owned by state parties. The Hillary Campaign owned and controlled all the money.
Legal political contributions are $2,700 to any candidate, $10,000 to any state party committee, and (during the 2016 cycle) $33,400 to a national party's main account.
Major donors could make one $350,000 contribution as long as no one candidate, state party, or national party campaign received more than the legal limits.
Instead, the Hillary Campaign took the big donations, and gave less than one-half of one per cent to state Democratic Party Committees. The Supreme Court has ruled it is illegal for joint fundraising committees to ask for or accept contributions to circumvent base limits. Scams through "earmarks" and "straw men" were ruled illegal, and are crimes.
The lawsuit was filed four days before the Democratic National Committee sued the Trump Campaign for President, Russia, and a host of others. It alleges an illegal conspiracy to affect a Presidential election.
