Lawsuit alleges 40 state Dem parties illegally funneled up to $84 million into Clinton campaign


Recommended Posts


A lawsuit alleges that up to 40 state-level Democratic parties participated in a scheme to illegally funnel up to $84 million into the 2016 presidential campaign for Hillary Clinton.

How was this done?

Dan Backer, a Virginia campaign finance attorney who filed the lawsuit, alleges that the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee funneled money to state parties that in turn sent the money back to the DNC to support Clinton. The maneuver was designed to circumvent campaign contribution limits, according to the lawsuit.

Backer represents the Committee to Defend the President, a pro-President Donald Trump political action committee. The organization previously filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission in December, the Las Vegas Review Journal reported.

Becker said the Federal Election Commission missed a deadline to take action and that prompted his lawsuit.

Nevada’s Democratic Party among the state organizations named in the lawsuit, the Las Vegas Review Journal reported.

“You had individuals giving $300,000,” Backer told the Review Journal. “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.”
