Nevada DNC Sued For Illegally Funnelling Money To Clinton


DNC sued for funnelling money from Nevada to Clinton campaign

 Nevada’s Democratic Party is being sued for funnelling millions of dollars to the Hillary Clinton campaign during the 2016 election. 

 According to a complaint filed by Virginia campaign finance attorney Dan Backer with the Federal Election Commission, Hillary Clinton and the DNC attempted to circumvent campaign contribution limits by illegally funnelling money to prop up her failing campaign.

Reviewjournal.com reports: “You had individuals giving $300,000,” Backer said Friday. “They’re not doing it because they care about Nevada’s or Arkansas’ state party. They’re doing it to curry favor with and buy influence with Hillary Clinton.”

 Backer said the FEC failed to take action before a required deadline, prompting the lawsuit. Up to 40 state parties could be involved in $84 million worth of money transfers, Backer said.

“This is nothing more than a bogus political stunt feebly designed to distract from vulnerable Republicans’ disastrous agenda,” said Nevada Democratic Party spokeswoman Helen Kalla.

 According to records provided by Backer, the Hillary Victory Fund reported transferring more than $1.7 million to the Nevada Democratic Party between December 2015 and November 2016. But the party only reported receiving $146,200, which it transferred to the DNC.

 The remaining $1.6 million was sent by the Hillary Victory Fund to the Nevada party and received by the DNC and never appeared on the Nevada party’s reports, Backer said.

Anzalone releases education plan

 John Anzalone, a Democrat running in the 4th Congressional District, released a school safety plan that includes hiring social workers and armed resource officers in elementary, middle and high schools.

 The high school principal’s 10-point plan focuses on preventing school violence and requiring active shooter training for educators. He proposes using federal funds to harden security infrastructure at schools and to add one social worker to all elementary and middle schools and two workers at high schools.

The plan, according to Anzalone, is “very feasible using federal funds and a lot of common sense.”

 Anzalone also proposes placing trained, armed resource officers at all schools. His plan includes launching a marketing campaign to attract qualified mental health professionals and bolstering consequences for students who engage in violence.

ALERT ALERT

Ignored By Media: Trump Is Using Obama’s National Emergency On Mexican Cartels To Build The Border Wall

President Trump declared a State of Emergency at the US southern border on Friday.

Declaring the immigration crisis a national emergency was overdue. Presidents have declared national emergencies for nearly 50 years.

Barack Obama declared 13 national emergencies, 11 of which continue to this day. The Obama emergencies included the Swine Flu, Flint water crisis and Iran.

And Obama declared the Mexican drug cartels a national emergency in 2011.

Congress believes President Trump has $21 billion in unobligated military construction funding money available for the border wall with Mexico.

Now this was mostly ignored by the liberal media. President Trump is using Barack Obama’s previous national emergency on Mexican drug cartels to get funding for the border wall.

Via Law and Crime:

As it turns out, back in 2011 then-President Barack Obama issued an executive order “blocking property of transnational criminal organizations organizations.” Obama cited his authority as granted through the Constitution to invoke the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, 50 U.S.C. 1701, and the National Emergencies Act, 50 U.S.C. 1601. The latter is the same legislation that Trump is citing to get funding for the wall to achieve his immigration reform goals. That executive order targeted a number of criminal organizations, including the Mexican Los Zetas cartel, an ally of the MS-13 gang President Trump has regularly called out as a danger to Americans.

“Drugs, gangs and people — an invasion,” Trump said on Friday. “We have an invasion coming into this country.”

Trump all but thanked his predecessor on Friday.

“We may be using one of the national emergencies that [Obama] signed having to do with criminal cartels… it’s a very good national emergency… we’re going to be using parts of it,” he said.
