Trump Vindicated By FEC

On Wednesday, former President Donald Trump praised the Federal Election Commission (FEC) for handing down a fine to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee for lies related to campaign funding eventually provided to Fusion GPS, the company at the center of the debunked “Steele dossier.”

The FEC’s declaration of Clinton’s wrongdoing prompted Trump to take a victory lap, declaring that this decision is not just a fine, but the revelation and confirmation of corruption.

According to the FEC, Hillary Clinton’s “Hillary for America” campaign will have to pay a fine of $8,000 and the Democratic National Committee will have to pay $105,000 to settle the campaign spending inquiry.

Trump shared his approval of the findings in a statement and showed his support for the FEC’s decision. Trump also added that corruption like this must be avoided in the future at all costs.

According to the Federal Election Commission’s complaint, the Democratic National Committee collaborated with Christopher Steele — of the UK — to create and circulate what became known as the Steele dossier.

The FEC discovered that the DNC and Hillary’s campaign both falsified the reason for certain disbursements, falsely identifying their payments for opposition research as fees for legal services.

The Coolidge Reagan Foundation’s counsel Dan Backer reported to Newsmax that Hilary Clinton, for the very first time, has been held legally responsible for her corrupt political practices.

Becker concluded by saying that Hillary Clinton and corrupt politicians like her were political frauds, and that politicians like her are tearing down the country and its electoral system. And such politicians must be held accountable.
