A new legal complaint filed with the Federal Election Commission claims to circumvent the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee, state chapters, as strawmen campaign donation limits and laundered the money back to your campaign.
The Committee for the defence of the President, a political action committee, filed his complaint with the FEC on Monday with allegations that the Hillary-victory-Fund (HVF) requested cash from the big names of the donors, including Calvin Klein and “Family Guy” Creator Seth MacFarlane — money allegedly sent by state chapters and back to the DNC before the end of the Clinton campaign.
Officials with the Committee said that her submission was inspired by your own analysis of the FEC reports, where they said they discovered the HVF either never have the money transferred to the state Chapter and back to the DNC, or did so, without the state chapters with the actual control.
“What we have found, people need to see,” Ted Harvey, Chairman of the CDP, emerged from the now-defunct Stop Hillary PAC, told Fox News. “I think it is important that the American public has an understanding of how corrupt this campaign was and that they did what they could to secure the nomination in their favor.”
In his complaint, the CDP, it is claimed that about $84 million flowed illegally out of the DNC by the state party chapters, and back in the war chest, the Clinton campaign.
“Apparently, the DNC’s answer to the [BGH] judgment was,” Hold my beer.'”
To Defend the Committee, the President’s counsel Dan Backer
“Based on publicly available FEC records, again and again in the 2016 presidential campaign, the HVF was supposed to. on a transfer of funds to its constituent political bodies, the reads in the range between 34 and 40 of the Treaty States,” a passage from a copy of the complaint post by Fox News “To have occurred on the same day, each of these transfers allegedly are, or sometimes the next day every single one of these state parties, which allegedly contributed to all of these funds to the DNC is specified.”
CDP Council Dan Backer said that the scheme was a flagrant violation of a Supreme court judgment, which determines how the movements of illegal — and FEC campaign contribution rules, the claim that an individual can broke.only 2,700 euros to contribute directly to a presidential campaign
“Apparently, the DNC is was a reaction to the judgment, “Hold my beer”, he says, refers to a phrase from an Internet meme. “These donations were specifically earmarked for the DNC and the campaign Committee.”
Supporter continued, “It is not entirely clear whether she has transferred the money to start the contract States, and if you never had the control over the money, it is not a contribution. It is a to provide. If the money is in the control of the candidate, then it’s a contribution to you.”
Supporters reiterates a point made in the complaint -that the Supreme court recognized, at first, were these practices illegal, if you ruled in the 2014 case with Shaun McCutcheon, a businessman and electrical engineer from the suburb of Birmingham, Ala., who created the Conservative action Fund PAC. McCutcheon lawsuit against the FEC challenging federal campaign contribution limits. It supporter who was assisted in the filing of the lawsuit.
“This is exactly the scenario that you said they would occur”, says Backer. “You were not so bold it’s still so sloppy.”
The new complaint filed against the FEC said, previous reports showed a series of transactions, in which the heavy vehicle tax is paid in contributions to state party Committee members and they would receive the funds on the same day. The HVF would allegedly pay off, Fund up to 40 Contracting States at the same time, and the parties would send the money within 24 hours.
“It seems practically every single payout from the HVF. was to a state that is a Contracting party, in an immediate transmission of the same amount of funds from the state, the party of the DNC,” it says in a different passage from the complaint “About 99% of the money by the HVF to the state, the parties to the wound in the DNC.”
Officials for the DNC did not return requests for comment when contacted by Fox News.
The allegations echo the claims of former DNC chair Donna Brazile seem, during the promotion of her book earlier this year.
In your 2017 book “Hacks” Brazile told how she saw the money is moved.
“People who had maxed out their $2,700 contribution limit, to write the campaign, presented an additional check for $353,400 to the Hillary-victory-Fund figure, the $10,000 for each of the 32 States parties, which is part of the victory-Fund-agreement—$320,000 and $33,400 of the DNC,” reads a passage from the book. “The money would first, in the States, and to the DNC shortly thereafter. Money in the battleground States in the rule remained in this state, but also all the other States funneled the money directly to the DNC, which is transferred quickly to the [Clinton campaign headquarters in Brooklyn.”
Brazile has to say is a Problem with this, that it meant victory fund Clinton wanted to, before she received the nomination.
A DNC statement issued last month in response to their demands, said: “to increase Joint fundraising committees were created … in the experiments, the General elections, to win the necessary funds, in the year 2016. Clinton was the only candidate, of the donations for the party through their joint fundraising Committee with the DNC that would benefit all the candidates come out of the presidential primary process.”
Backer says the Committee hopes that its findings promotes campaign Finance reform and an investigation by the Department of Justice.
“It is very cut and dry,” he says, “but it should play no role at all, it was Hillary Clinton and the DNC that did this. The law has been broken. It doesn’t matter who did it.”
