EXPOSED: Hillary Clinton’s $84 Million Money Laundering Scheme
By Robert Gehl
During the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton’s campaign engaged in a scheme to exceed the legal campaign contribution limits by funneling money through state parties directly to her national campaign.
The scheme seems to be patently illegal, allowing donors to bypass the federal limits placed on donations to political campaigns, but Clinton did it anyway.
Now, a Donald Trump-supporting group has filed a complaint with the Federal Elections Commission to call Clinton to account for her sins.
This wasn’t a big secret. We first reported it back in August. Here’s how it worked:
Clinton’s campaign would solicit six- and seven-figure donations to her campaign. Deep-pocket liberal donors would give money to the Democratic National Committee, who would then dole it out to state parties under the condition that those state parties turn around and give them money to the “Hillary Victory Fund.”
It’s a sneaky way for donors to exceed the “aggregate limits” imposed by the FEC.
The Committee to Defend the President, a political action committee, filed its complaint with the FEC with the allegations that the Hillary Victory Fund solicited cash from big-name donors, including Calvin Klein and “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane — money that was allegedly sent through state chapters and back to the DNC before ending up with the Clinton campaign.
Officials with the committee said their filing was spurred by their own analysis of FEC reports, where they said they discovered the HVF either never transferred the money to state chapters and back to the DNC, or did so without the state chapters having actual control.
“What we have found, people need to see,” Ted Harvey, chairman of the Committee to Defend the President which emerged from the now-defunct Stop Hillary PAC, told Fox News. “I think it’s important that the American public has an understanding of how corrupt this campaign system was and that they were doing anything they could to secure the nomination in her favor.”
In its complaint, the CDP alleges that about $84 million was funneled illegally from the DNC through state party chapters and back into the war chest of the Clinton campaign.
“Based on publicly available FEC records, repeatedly throughout the 2016 presidential campaign, HVF would purportedly transfer funds to its constituent political committees, which included between 34 and 40 state parties,” reads a passage from a copy of the complaint reviewed by Fox News. “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.”
How was this allowed to happen? As former DNC head Donna Brazile admitted, the entire party was basically put under the control of Hillary Clinton. They were strapped for cash and in exchange for an infusion of dollars, Hillary Clinton would take over the party, shut out Bernie and funnel as much money as possible to her campaign.
It’s crooked, it’s corrupt and it’s likely illegal.
And Hillary Clinton still lost the presidency.
How stupid is that?
