NOT-SO-SHOCKING REVELATION: The Clinton campaign laundered millions during the election

How’s this for a headline that you, along with the rest of America, may have missed?

"The Hillary Clinton campaign effectively laundered $84 million during the 2016 election." At least that’s the allegation made in a lawsuit filed in a DC federal court last week by a group called the “Committee to Defend the President.”

If you haven’t heard of this, it’s probably because last week’s priority lawsuit was the one filed by Democrats against the Trump campaign, WikiLeaks and Russia. But, to be fair, it’s hard to squeeze in potentially bombshell news about Hillary Clinton’s campaign corruption with so much Comey, Russia, Michael Cohen and Stormy Daniels updates to cover.

Basically, here’s how campaign finance is supposed to work...

A person is only allowed to give $2,700 to any candidate, $10,000 to any state party committee and (during the 2016 election) $33,400 to a national party. Oftentimes, a donor will give one lump sum --- let’s say $100,000.

If that person wrote a check for $100,000 to the Hillary Victory Fund (which was Clinton’s joint fundraising committee), under campaign finance law, the Hillary Victory Fund would have to distribute that money in the allowed amounts to the Hillary Clinton campaign ($2,700) and the DNC ($33,400). Then, the remaining $63,900 would be disbursed to the state party committees. But no more than $10,000 to any one state committee, as permitted by law.

The Hillary Victory Fund apparently did not follow the rules.

Well, shocking newsflash, the Hillary Victory Fund apparently did not follow the rules. I know, pick up your jaw off the floor, especially if you’re driving, because that’s dangerous. The Hillary Victory Fund frequently received a big donation, like our $100,000 example, and would transfer (at least on paper) the correct amounts to state committees.

But then, the exact same amount was magically transferred back to the DNC either on the same day or the next day. The DNC then contributed most of those funds to Hillary for America (which was Hillary’s campaign committee).

It’s the darnedest thing --- the state committees often don’t have records of having either received or sent funds in those amounts. Crazy, right? Who would do that?

Quoting from the lawsuit: “public statements from both the then-Chairwoman of the DNC, Donna Brazile, and Hillary for America’s Chief Financial Officer, Gary Gensler, confirm Hillary for America controlled the DNC’s finances, strategy, and expenditures. That is, the funds raised through the Hillary Victory Fund ended up under the direction and control of Hillary for America.”

That’s the illegal part. Money going from state party committees back to the national party committee is commonplace --- both Republicans and Democrats do that. But money at the DNC then flowing directly to Hillary for America is against the law.

For a year prior to Election Day, the DNC also made at least 59 coordinated expenditures with the Clinton campaign, which campaign finance law treats as contributions to Hillary for America. Those expenditures only totaled $22.8 million.

Yet, the media is losing its mind over Michael Cohen’s $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels and whether it qualifies as a campaign contribution.

Donna Brazile laid out much of this in a Politico magazine article last November, but the media just yawned and went back to checking Trump’s Twitter feed.

According to the lawsuit, these allegations are built entirely on the Federal Election Commission reports filed by the Hillary Victory Fund, the DNC and the state Democratic parties. Politico magazine also reported on this scheme --- way back in June of 2016.

If there’s one thing the Clintons are really good at, it’s manipulating the flow of millions of dollars into their own pockets.

But mainstream media didn’t bat an eyelid, because they were in full-on Trump panic mode. Even Bernie Sanders accused the Clinton campaign of “money laundering” prior to the Democratic National convention, so the current lawsuit is not just another partisan attack.

So, what does all this mean? It means that once again, mainstream media is barking up the wrong tree. If there’s one thing the Clintons are really good at, it’s manipulating the flow of millions of dollars into their own pockets, their organizations, or both.

They’re masters at it. Actually, the masterful part is their amazing ability to avoid ever being held accountable.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Monday, Harvard Law professor and lawyer on President Donald Trump's impeachment defense team Alan Dershowitz explains the history of impeachment and its process, why the framers did not include abuse of power as criteria for a Constitutional impeachment, why the Democrats are framing their case the way they are, and what to look for in the upcoming Senate trial.

Dershowitz argued that "abuse of power" -- one of two articles of impeachment against Trump approved by House Democrats last month -- is not an impeachable act.

"There are two articles of impeachment. The second is 'obstruction of Congress.' That's just a false accusation," said Dershowitz. "But they also charge him, in the Ukraine matter, with abuse of power. But abuse of power was discussed by the framers (of the U.S. Constitution) ... the framers refused to include abuse of power because it was too broad, too open-ended.

"In the words of James Madison, the father of our Constitution, it would lead presidents to serve at the will of Congress. And that's exactly what the framers didn't want, which is why they were very specific and said a president can be impeached only for treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors," he added.

"What's alleged against President Trump is not criminal," added Dershowitz. "If they had criminal issues to allege, you can be sure they would have done it. If they could establish bribery or treason, they would have done it already. But they didn't do it. They instead used this concept of abuse of power, which is so broad and general ... any president could be charged with it."

On Friday's radio program, Bill O'Reilly joins Glenn Beck discuss the possible outcomes for the Democrats in 2020.

Why are former President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama working overtime to convince Americans they're more moderate than most of the far-left Democratic presidential candidates? Is there a chance of a Michelle Obama vs. Donald Trump race this fall?

O'Reilly surmised that a post-primary nomination would probably be more of a "Bloomberg play." He said Michael Bloomberg might actually stand a chance at the Democratic nomination if there is a brokered convention, as many Democratic leaders are fearfully anticipating.

"Bloomberg knows he doesn't really have a chance to get enough delegates to win," O'Reilly said. "He's doing two things: If there's a brokered convention, there he is. And even if there is a nominee, it will probably be Biden, and Biden will give [him] Secretary of State or Secretary of Treasury. That's what Bloomberg wants."

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Friday, award-winning investigative reporter John Solomon, a central figure in the impeachment proceedings, explained his newly filed lawsuit, which seeks the records of contact between Ukraine prosecutors and the U.S. Embassy officials in Kiev during the 2016 election.

The records would provide valuable information on what really happened in Ukraine, including what then-Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter were doing with Ukrainian energy company, Burisma Holdings, Solomon explained.

The documents, which the State Department has withheld thus far despite repeated requests for release by Solomon, would likely shed light on the alleged corruption that President Donald Trump requested to be investigated during his phone call with the president of Ukraine last year.

With the help of Southeastern Legal Foundation, Solomon's lawsuit seeks to compel the State Department to release the critical records. Once released, the records are expected to reveal, once and for all, exactly why President Trump wanted to investigate the dealings in Ukraine, and finally expose the side of the story that Democrats are trying to hide in their push for impeachment.

"It's been a one-sided story so far, just like the beginning of the Russia collusion story, right? Everybody was certain on Jan. 9 of 2017 that the Christopher Steele dossier was gospel. And our president was an agent of Russia. Three years later, we learned that all of that turned out to be bunk, " Solomon said.

"The most important thing about politics, and about investigations, is that there are two sides to a story. There are two pieces of evidence. And right now, we've only seen one side of it," he continued. "I think we'll learn a lot about what the intelligence community, what the economic and Treasury Department community was telling the president. And I bet the story was way more complicated than the narrative that [House Intelligence Committee Chairman] Adam Schiff [D-Calif.] has woven so far."

Carter Page, a former advisor to Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, found himself at the center of the Russia probe and had his reputation and career destroyed by what we now know were lies from our own intelligence system and the media.

On the TV show Thursday, Page joined Glenn Beck to speak out about how he became the subject of illegal electronic surveillance by the FBI for more than two years, and revealed the extent of the corruption that has infiltrated our legal systems and our country as a whole.

"To me, the bigger issue is how much damage this has done to our country," Page told Glenn. "I've been very patient in trying to ... find help with finding solutions and correcting this terrible thing which has happened to our country, our judicial system, DOJ, FBI -- these once-great institutions. And my bigger concern is the fact that, although we keep taking these steps forward in terms of these important findings, it really remains the tip of the iceberg."

Page was referencing the report by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz, which revealed that the FBI made "at least 17 significant errors or omissions" in its Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) applications for warrants to spy on Page, a U.S. citizen.

"I think this needs to be attacked from all angles," Glenn said. "The one angle I'm interested in from you is, please tell me you have the biggest badass attorneys that are hungry, starving, maybe are a little low to pay their Mercedes payments right now, and are just gearing up to come after the government and the media. Are they?"

I can confirm that that is the case," Page replied.
