Hillary Clinton lost, so ignore her 84 million dollar shell game

Geller Report: It was “an unprecedented nationwide scheme to violate federal campaign finance law in which $84 million was effectively laundered over more than a year by the Hillary Victory Fund through dozens of state political party committees to the Democratic National Committee and, ultimately, to Hillary for America” during Election, 2016, alleged the Committee to Defend the President (CDP) in a lawsuit [04/16/18] “to compel the Federal Election Commission to take action.” [See lawsuit’s documents at end of story].

Consider this metaphor of gambling in Las Vegas. At the Election Plaza Hotel, inside the casino’s security office, we’re watching TV screens of gamblers, donating to campaigns. The House has rules about who, and how much money, can be played.

“Here’s what you can do, legally,” according to Dan Backer [Investor’s Business Daily]. “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.”

Back to our metaphor: A player, donating money, moves three chips to the center of the table: one chip ($2,700) intended for a candidate; a second chip ($10,000) intended for a state party committee; and a third chip ($33,400) intended for a national party’s main account. There are many players at this table, and there are about 50 tables at this game, all sponsored by a Joint Fundraising Committee (JFC).

“Here’s what you can’t do,” explains Backer: “[W]hich 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.”

Back to our metaphor: The aggregated chips should have been separated as donations later. Instead, like a shell game, the straw men’s chips remained as aggregate donations and eventually earmarked to?

You guessed it: “Finally, as Donna Brazile and others admitted, the [Democratic National Committee] placed the funds under the Clinton campaign’s direct control, a massive breach of campaign finance law that ties the conspiracy together,” Backer summarized: “Democratic donors, knowing the funds would end up with Clinton’s campaign, wrote six-figure checks to influence the election [,] 100 times larger than allowed.”  MORE HERE

9 Comments on Hillary Clinton lost, so ignore her 84 million dollar shell game

  1. We heard all about this a year ago. It is obvious Sessions is not going to take any action, so let’s just let Mueller keep looking for a campaign finance violation by Trump. Surely, McCain put something in his Campaign Finance Reform law which Trump can be nailed on. That would dry the tears of Trump-hating McCain lovers everywhere.

  2. Want to learn more?
    Find the deleted 30,000 e-mails.
    – All this is contained within

    *To delete the 30,000 e-mails they deleted them from Hillary’s disks drives, and they also went to the recipients’ e-mail systems and to her attorney’s** e-mail systems to delete ALL copies of the e-mails.

    **Why isn’t the FBI conducting midnight raids on the recipients and attorneys to find all the deleted e-mails? (Can you say cover-up?)

  3. I hope Donny pulls his head out of his ass and replaces Sessions after the mid-terms and hires an AG that will put the Clintons and Soros in prison where they belong.
    And, the new AG needs to fire anyone hired during obama’s reign.

  4. And where is the FEC right now? Running their partisan mouths about Trump and his money, that’s where.

    “The Federal Election Commission (FEC) is the independent regulatory agency charged with administering and enforcing the federal campaign finance law. The FEC has jurisdiction over the financing of campaigns for the U.S. House, Senate, Presidency and the Vice Presidency.”

    I don’t see “only Republican campaigns” up there. So, FEC…What is it you’d say you do here? Clinton is right in your freaking wheelhouse. Deal with it.

  5. She’s always “dead broke,” so, hey, she needs a stash. Otherwise, if she runs out of cash, the Cabal will turn on her and she’ll end up in court.

  6. No one wants to be the next person to commit suicide by shot to the back of the head or a hit and run while riding their bike.
