Hillary Clinton was desperate to win in 2016. She knew it was her last chance. That’s why she rigged the Democrat Primary against Bernie Sander.
But it appears she is guilty of more than that. There are claims that she laundered 84 Million dollars during the 2016 campaign. Just how did she get away with that?
“Here’s what you can do, legally. Per election, an individual donor can contribute $2,700 to any candidate, $10,000 to any state party committee, and (during the 2016 cycle) $33,400 to a national party’s main account. These groups can all get together and take a single check from a donor for the sum of those contribution limits — it’s legal because the donor cannot exceed the base limit for any one recipient. And state parties can make unlimited transfers to their national party.
Here’s what you can’t do, which the Clinton machine appeared to do anyway. As the Supreme Court made clear in McCutcheon v. FEC, the JFC may not solicit or accept contributions to circumvent base limits, through “earmarks” and “straw men” that are ultimately excessive — there are five separate prohibitions here.
On top of that, six-figure donations either never actually passed through state party accounts or were never actually under state party control, which adds false FEC reporting by HVF, state parties, and the DNC to the laundry list.”
“The $84 million in laundered money amounts to the single largest campaign finance scandal in U.S. history. We have never seen a political candidate — especially one as recognizable as Clinton — preside over such an extravagant money laundering scheme, for the sole purpose of circumventing campaign finance laws and selling unprecedented access to win the White House.
Of course, she failed spectacularly, but allowing such a blatant disregard for campaign finance laws to go unchecked sets a dangerous precedent. It shouldn’t matter if you’re a Democrat or Republican — the law should be enforced.
