Remember the phony Russian “dossier” that Hillary Clinton initiated in order to spy on Donald Trump’s presidential campaign after she realized he had a clear path to victory?
You know, the same “dossier” that spurred an eventual impeachment charge after Trump went on to defeat Clinton?
Well as it turns out, the entire scenario was a scam, a hoax, a lie, and Hillary Clinton is now forced to pay the price.
The Federal Election Commission has fined the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign for lying about the funding of the infamous, and discredited, Russian “dossier” used in a smear attempt against Donald Trump weeks before he shocked the world with his 2016 presidential victory.
The election agency said that Clinton and the DNC violated strict rules on describing expenditures of payments funneled to the opposition research firm Fusion GPS through their law firm.
A combined $1,024,407.97 was paid by the treasurers of the DNC and Clinton campaign to law firm Perkins Cole for Fusion GPS’s information, and the party and campaign hid the reason, claiming it was for legal services, not opposition research.
Instead, the DNC’s $849,407.97 and the Clinton campaign’s $175,000 covered Fusion GPS’s opposition research on the dossier, a basis for the so-called “Russia hoax” that dogged Trump’s first term.
The memo said that the Clinton campaign and DNC argued that they were correct in describing their payment as for “legal advice and services” because it was Perkins Coie that hired Fusion GPS. But the agency said the law is clear and was violated.
As a result, The FEC said it fined Clinton’s treasurer $8,000 and the DNC’s treasurer $105,000.
Clinton has in the past defended her campaign’s spending for the information and the work of her campaign lawyer, Marc Elias, with Fusion GPS, which compiled the dossier and hired former British spy Christopher Steele to dig further on Trump.
It’s miracle that Hillary Clinton hasn’t been brought up on charges for the little stunt she pulled.
No one really knows why then-President Trump never pursued charges against Clinton, Obama, and the Deep State apparatus that aided and abetted the spy campaign.
Who knows? Maybe 2024 is the year the 47th President does something about it.
