Hillary Clinton’s presidential ambitions may be over, but her corruption is forever.
Fox News has the scoop on yet another case of shady activity by the former First Lady, New York Senator, and Secretary of State. Shocking, I know.
According to a new complaint filed with the Federal Election Commission (not the first, by the way), it seems the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee hatched a money-laundering scheme using state Democrat party chapters to secure donations that went back to the campaign, getting around the usual $2,700 limit on individual contributions to political candidates.
The Committee to Defend the President, a political action committee, filed its complaint with the FEC on Monday with the allegations that the Hillary Victory Fund (HVF) 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 CDP 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.”
Fox’s report notes that all of this closely matches claims made by former DNC chair Donna Brazile in the tell-all book she released last month. There, Brazile explained that individual donors who had hit the limit 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.” That money got deposited in the states, where it stayed if the state was the site of a battleground congressional race, but otherwise it got transferred back to the DNC, which then put it right in Hillary’s coffers.
The DNC didn’t comment to Fox on the latest story, but characterized Brazile’s allegations at the time as much ado about nothing: “Clinton was the only candidate who raised money for the party through her joint fundraising committee with the DNC, which would benefit any candidate coming out of the presidential primary process.”
Sure, we have no reason whatsoever to doubt any of that…
