Somehow Benghazi and Uranium One did not put Crooked Hillary behind bars where she belongs, but this latest scandal very well could. The Federal Election Commission is investigating an alleged $84 million money laundering scheme orchestrated by the Hillary Victory Fund — the $500 million joint fundraising committee between the Clinton campaign, the Democratic National Committee, and Democratic state parties.
Based on former DNC Chairwoman Donna Brazile’s public comments, a memo by former Clinton campaign manager Robbie Mook, and months of reviewing FEC reports, the Committee to Defend the President has filed an FEC complaint accusing the Democratic establishment of using state chapters as straw men to circumvent campaign donation limits and launder money to Clinton’s campaign. The Hillary Victory Fund solicited six-figure donations from major donors, including Calvin Klein and “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane, “papered” them through state parties en route to DNC and then the Clinton campaign.
In reality, the fund either never transferred $84 million to state parties, sending the funds straight to the DNC, or it made the transfers without state parties having actual control of the money. In either case, the fund violated campaign finance laws in precisely the way the Supreme Court deemed illegal in its 2014 McCutcheon v. FECruling. And that’s only the tip of allegations in this particular iceberg.
If and when the allegations are confirmed by the FEC, Clinton’s $84 million money laundering scheme will go down as the single largest campaign finance scandal in U.S. history. (via: Conservative Post)
Has the New York Times devoted a single drop of ink to the $84 million scandal? Of course not. MSNBC and CNN have remained completely silent about the issue, which unfortunately is not surprising even though these news outlets describe themselves as “nonpartisan.” The only liberal-leaning reporter to cover the scandal is Washington Post’s Dave Weigel, and even he was forced to acknowledge that, “Most coverage of the FEC complaint had appeared in conservative media” before he covered it.
Why would they cover it? It’s ONLY an 84 million dollar scandal. No big deal, right? They would rather spend their time attacking an actual honest politician. Sore losers does not even began to cover it.
This is not to say that Clinton will not be held accountable. The FEC’s investigation of the latest Clinton scandal is already underway and could result in significant legal jeopardy for the Democratic establishment, their major donors, and Clinton herself. When she is FINALLY hauled away to answer for her crimes, perhaps their viewers will ask, Why haven’t we heard a word about this up until now?
