As many as 40 state-level Democratic parties may have been involved in a scheme to funnel as much as $84 million to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, a campaign finance lawyer contends.
EXCLUSIVE: The Hillary Clinton Campaign and the Democratic National Committee allegedly used state chapters as strawmen to launder as much as $84 million in an effort to circumvent campaign donation limits, and the Federal Election Commission ignored complaints exposing the practice, a lawsuit filed Monday claims.
The Committee to Defend the President (CDP), a political action committee formally known as Stop Hillary PAC, filed its complaint with the FEC in December 2017 with the claims that the Hillary Victory Fund (HVF) solicited cash from big-name donors, and allegedly sent that money through state chapters and back to the DNC before ending up with the Clinton campaign.
It’s a battle of the billboards just miles away from President Donald Trump’s “winter White House.”
A top pro-Trump super political action committee plans to put up a billboard Monday thanking President Trump, directly opposite one placed earlier this month by a liberal PAC calling for the commander-in-chief’s impeachment, Newsweek has learned. The competing messages will reside about two miles away from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate and golf club.
A pro-Trump super PAC has filed a Federal Election Commission complaint against Pennsylvania U.S. House candidate Democrat Conor Lamb, alleging unlawful coordination between outside groups and his campaign.
Lamb is facing Republican Rick Saccone in a highly contested special election for the seat in the 18th congressional district near Pittsburgh.
According to the complaint filed Monday by the Committee to Defend the President, Lamb unlawfully signed multiple emails for the liberal super PAC End Citizens United, which directed recipients to fundraising pages soliciting contributions that were not for his campaign committee.
The Committee to Defend the President released a poll late Friday that shows Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN-07) trounces Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) in a hypothetical head-to-head matchup in the Tennessee Republican U.S. Senate primary by more than 2-to-1, 55 percent to 26 percent.
The pro-Trump super PAC Committee to Defend the President is getting involved in the special election in PA-18, launching a $50,000 digital ad campaign.
A super PAC backing President Trump is sponsoring an e-billboard in Times Square that blasts “FAKE NEWS” and urges viewers to click on a Web link that shows a complaint it filed against Hillary Clinton’s campaign for alleged fundraising abuses.
A new legal complaint filed with the Federal Election Commission alleges that the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee used state chapters as strawmen to circumvent campaign donation limits and laundered the money back to her campaign.
Thursday, New York Times columnist Charles Blow took liberal outrage to new decibel levels. His argument? President Trump is comparable to Adolf Hitler.
No, I’m not kidding. In Blow’s words: “Maybe I have crossed the ink-stained line of the essay writer, where Hitler is always beyond it. But I don’t think so. Ignoring what one of history’s greatest examples of lying has to teach us about current examples of lying, particularly lying by the ‘president’ of the most powerful country in the world, seems to me an act of timidity in a time of terror.”
