Breitbart News reports that Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign and the Democrat National Committee were fined $113,000 on Tuesday by the Federal Election Commission (FEC) for hiding their spending on the fraudulent Russia “dossier.”
Hillary’s campaign and DNC reported payments to Democrat law firm Perkins Coie as legal expenses instead of earmarking them accurately as “paying Fusion GPS through Perkins Coie to conduct opposition research on Donald Trump,” according to the original complaint of Campaign Legal Center.
The DNC and Clinton campaign agreed to jointly pay $113,000 — $8,000 from Hillary’s campaign and $105,000 from the DNC — a small sum for allegedly “misreporting the purpose of certain disbursements” related to the “Steele dossier.”
The dossier was created by former British spy Christopher Steele with foreign sources and used as evidence to spy on Trump’s campaign, even though a Department of Justice Inspector General report said the FBI had found it to be false. Leaked by BuzzFeed News in January 2017, it asserted false, inaccurate, “unproven and sometimes salacious allegations about ties between Russia and Donald Trump, as well as others in his orbit,” Politico reported.
“In the run-up to the 2016 Presidential Election, Hillary Clinton and her cohorts orchestrated an unthinkable plot –- one that shocks the conscience and is an affront to this nation’s democracy,” the lawsuit correctly noted.
