Clinton Campaign, DNC Agree to Pay Fines for Role in Financing the Steele Dossier

Even the Federal Elections Commission is admitting Clinton committed a crime.

The Federal Election Commission might have inadvertently helped Donald Trump’s lawsuit against those who falsely accused him of colluding with Russia to steal the 2016 United States presidential election.

According to documents made public on March 30, federal regulators have fined Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee for failing to disclose their spending on the debunked Steele dossier (which accused Trump of escapades with prostitutes and business ties with Russian oligarchs, among other things). The Clinton campaign was fined $8,000, while the Democratic National Committee was fined $105,000.

These fines came after the Coolidge Reagan Foundation sent a letter to the Federal Election Commission (fec) complaining that the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee hired the law firm Perkins Coie as a conduit to Fusion gps for opposition research. Fusion gps, in turn, hired British agent Christopher Steele to produce a toxic dossier on Donald Trump—a task Steele accomplished by having Russian-American analyst Igor Danchenko repeat rumors he heard from former Clinton aide Charles Dolan. So, the Clinton campaign was paying a law firm to pay a research firm to pay a British spy to talk to a Russian analyst to collect dirt on Donald Trump from the Clinton campaign itself. This exercise in circular reasoning was deliberately designed to make Donald Trump look guilty of crimes he did not commit by laundering them through reputable agencies.

Yet to make this political hit job look legitimate, the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee had to obscure the money trail. Clinton’s campaign paid $175,000 to Perkins Coie, and the dnc paid $849,408 to Perkins Coie, but both entities told the fec that this money was spent on “legal services” instead of on “opposition research.” This misreporting was intended to obscure wrongdoing, but determined investigators uncovered the truth. Now the Coolidge Reagan Foundation is pressing charges that even the left-leaning Federal Election Commission cannot deny.

While neither the Clinton campaign nor the Democratic National Committee has confessed wrongdoing, they had to pay a fine. That is the first indication the government may hold Clinton accountable for her crimes.

“Wow! Just out that the 2016 Clinton campaign and the dnc paid the fec today for violating the law by failing to disclose that their payments for ‘legal advice and services’ to law firm Perkins Coie was, in fact, a guise to hire numerous companies, all of whom are now named defendants in my lawsuit, to try and take down and illegally destroy your favorite president, me,” Donald Trump said in March 30 statement. “This was done to create, as I have stated many times, and is now confirmed, a hoax funded by the dnc and the Clinton campaign. This corruption is only beginning to be revealed, is un-American, and must never be allowed to happen again.”

Mr. Trump previously filed a lawsuit against Hillary Clinton, the Democratic National Committee, and 26 other entities, suing them for more than $70 million in damages for their role in falsely accusing him of colluding with Russian oligarchs to steal the 2016 United States presidential election. “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,” his 108-page legal complaint states. “Acting in concert, the defendants maliciously conspired to weave a false narrative that their Republican opponent, Donald J. Trump, was colluding with a hostile foreign sovereignty. The actions taken in furtherance of their scheme—falsifying evidence, deceiving law enforcement, and exploiting access to highly sensitive data source—are so outrageous, subversive and incendiary that even the events of Watergate pale in comparison.”

Many expect Trump’s lawsuit to be thrown out of court, but the fact that the Federal Election Commission is condemning Clinton for failing to disclose what her payments were intended to do could be a sign that the court system will hold Clinton and her accomplices at least partially responsible for their crimes. Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry wrote in “Why I Still Believe Donald Trump Is Coming Back” that “I still believe [God] is about to do some massive exposing of how the election was stolen and other crimes the radical left is committing. I don’t know what God will do, but He could expose all this very shortly—and then what happens? If Mr. Trump had the election stolen from him, then it should flow right on with him being president.”

This prediction is based on a prophecy in Amos 7:8, which says that God will pass by the modern-day descendants of ancient Israel (Britain and America primarily) before our nations finally face the consequences of our sins. This means that the corruption in America’s political system must be exposed, and free and fair elections must be restored. Only then will the nation be in a position to repent and freely choose to pattern their government and their lives on God’s law or not. So keep watching for a massive political exposé!
