    Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign may have gotten a sizable – and illegal – financial boost from as many as 40 state-level Democratic parties.

    “You had individuals giving $300,000,” Virginia-based attorney Dan Backer, who filed the lawsuit, told the newspaper on Friday. “They’re not doing it because they care about Nevada’s or Arkansas’ state party. They’re doing it to curry favor with and buy influence with Hillary Clinton.”

    Another state involved in the lawsuit is Idaho where Democrats allegedly contributed $1.6 million in 13 reported transactions between November 2015 and November 2016, according to the Idaho Statesman which reported that 10 of those transactions “showed transfers from Hillary Victory Fund whose amounts were matched by transfers from the state party to the DNC on the same dates.”

    Local party officials, however, may have been ignorant of the transactions.

    It is “reasonably possible the Idaho State Democratic Party had no prior knowledge of, or control over, these transfers because they were handled entirely by HVF, the DNC, HFA, [Hillary Victory Fund, Democratic National Committee, Hillary for America] and/or their treasurers,” the 101-page complaint filed in December stated, according to the Statesman.

    Meanwhile, in Delaware, Backer thinks the handling of money “doesn’t pass the sniff test.”

    “There were 11 transactions where the Democratic State Committee of Delaware (Delaware Democratic Party) forwarded $2.5 million to the Democratic National Committee, and so these funds were raised, transferred to the Delaware Democratic Party and then transferred to the DNC on the exact same day, or at least that’s what was reported,” Becker told WXDE-FM radio.

    Jesse Chadderdon, executive director for the Delaware Democratic Party, slammed the lawsuit as “yet another blatant example of hypocrisy from Donald Trump and his cronies.”

    “Let’s be clear, this is nothing more than a Beltway political stunt,” Chadderdon told the station, “led by the pro-Trump PAC ‘The Committee to Defend the President,’ one that’s simply designed to distract Delaware voters.”

    But Backer notes it was illegal because “the Supreme Court has said that we can impose a contribution limit on how much any one individual can give to any one candidate, state party, or political action committee.”

    “It doesn’t pass the sniff test. If I give you a million dollars for your campaign, I may not have bought anything, but it looks that way. The Supreme Court has widely upheld these base limits,” he added.

    OK, first off, nothing illegal was shown to have happened, this is all based on a presumption of foul play.

    Second, the earliest reports about this was from last April. This still hasn't gone to trial? OK.

    This story broke last year and is pretty much a bunch of floating turds.

    A pro-Trump political action committee filed a complaint in December with the Federal Election Commission alleging that Hillary Clinton's campaign laundered $84 million in contributions from big-name donors, such as Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg, filmmaker Steven Spielberg, and designer Calvin Klein.

    The complaint outlines a money-laundering scheme that violated multiple campaign finance laws — specifically, laws related to limits on individual contributions. This week, the complaint has escalated with a related lawsuit to force the FEC to take up the case.

    The U.S. government limits how much money an individual can contribute to a particular candidate or committee in order to combat corruption and to maintain fair elections. Contribution limit computations require ridiculously absurd government mathematics.

    As for any lawsuit, I don't know that any was actually filed.

    It was supposedly filed in April earlier this year. I can't imagine that it went anywhere. Not seeing or hearing ANYTHING about it.

    I do not believe a lawsuit was ever filled, if it was, it will join up with a sea of "Crooked Hillary" garbage lawsuits.

    Complaint was filed 12 2017 to the FEDERAL ELECTION COMMISSION.

    The FEC has been non responsive.

    A lawsuit was filed against the FEC to compel them to respond to the complaint on 04/16/18

    The FEC is obligated to look into ALL complaints filed.......PERIOD.

    The FEC is also bound by timelines to respond which the lawsuit claims were never met.



    Hmmmmmmmmmm maybe the FEC is part of the 'Deep' State
    OR
    The FEC is colluding with the Russians to impeach Trump!!!!!

    It's difficult to prove fraudulent intent, but muscling local parties to give up cash for federal elections is a classic Clinton tactic. They've done it in every election they've been involved with. 2016 was an egregious example, as we saw the DNC and the Clinton campaign merge into a single entity.
