The conservative non-profit the Coolidge Reagan Foundation has filed a lawsuit in federal court accusing the Hillary Clinton campaign of breaking election law with the payments made to Christopher Steele.
Steele was the author of the anti-Trump dossier and is a British citizen.
According to The Washington Times:
The lawsuit from The Coolidge Reagan Foundation says the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee accepted something of value from a foreign national, Mr. Steele, in the form of Kremlin anti-Trump smut.
The suit’s purpose is to persuade a federal judge to order the FEC to vote on whether to open a formal investigation. Coolidge Reagan filed an FEC complaint in August. It was accepted for review, but there has been no formal commission action, according to Dan Backer, the foundation’s founder and president.
“The Clinton campaign, not Trump, collaborated with the Russians in a desperate, and ultimately failed, attempt to steal the election,” says the August 2018 complaint. It names Mr. Steele, the Clinton campaign, the DNC and Perkins Coie, the Democrats’ law firm, as respondents.
“I think Weintraub is full of hot air,” Mr. Backer told The Washington Times. “I mean, after all, she’s very serious about Trump’s comment, but she hasn’t done anything about our complaint.”
Weintraub’s made this statement to Twitter:

The lawsuit was in response to Weintraub’s statement. She is a democrat and looks to be operating on a double standard.
