Former Democratic National Committee Chair Donna Brazile claims that Hillary Clinton practically hijacked the Democratic Party during the 2016 presidential election.
Now, it looks like Clinton used the party as a personal piggy bank, too.
And she may have broken federal election laws in the process.
A complaint has just been lodged with the Federal Election Commission accusing Clinton of using a potentially illegal scheme that stole money from state chapters and netted her campaign an $84 million fortune.
All while allegedly skirting campaign finance regulations.
According to the complaint, filed by the political action committee The Committee to Defend the President, Clinton and her campaign solicited big donations for state chapters of the Democratic Party.
But the money didn’t stay with the states as promised.
Instead, it was routed back to the DNC and, ultimately, to Clinton’s campaign.
It was essentially a laundering scheme (the state chapters would likely call it theft) designed to circumvent campaign donation limits.
And it brought in a whopping $84 million for Clinton’s campaign.
This isn’t the first time that Clinton has been accused of raiding beleaguered state Democratic chapters to benefit her presidential campaign.
And it’s not the first time that speculation has arisen that the entire scheme was illegal.
But now the FEC will investigate – and that could spell big trouble for Clinton.
“What we have found, people need to see,” Ted Harvey, chairman of The Committee to Defend the President, told Fox News. “I think it’s important that the American public has an understanding of how corrupt this campaign system was and that they were doing anything they could to secure the nomination in [Clinton’s] favor.”
