Backer goes on to discuss the lawsuit currently being waged against the Clinton machine for this $84 million money laundering scheme. If D'Souza had to face justice for $20,000 it would only seem just for Clinton to face justice for $84 million. The left-wing media continues to ignore this massive scandal and the Clintons continue to prove that they are in fact, above the law.
The McCain-Feingold Act of 2002 targeted the kind of straw-man contributions D’Souza engaged in as a direct response to certain Democratic Party campaign finance scandals. Then-Sen. Kit Bond (R-MO) offered Amendment 166, which criminalized straw-man contributions that skirt contribution limits, calling out by name the illegal contributions made to Democrats during President Clinton’s 1996 campaign.
If the Left suddenly cares about accountability, they should apply the same standard to their 2016 presidential nominee, for precisely the same actions they now condemn D’Souza for, albeit exponentially more egregious ones.
In 2012, D’Souza was prosecuted and convicted for providing several associates with money they then contributed to a candidate of his preference — in other words, straw man contributions. He was sentenced to eight months in a community confinement center and five years of probation. How much money was involved? $20,000.
The Clinton machine carried out a similar straw-man scheme in 2016 to the tune of $84 million!
