Hillary Clinton and the Democrat National Committee(DNC) were smacked by a series of hefty fines from the Federal Election Commission(FEC) for their lies regarding the funding of the now-discredited Russia dossier

On Tuesday, the FEC said Clinton’s 2016 campaign and the DNC violated strict rules regarding the disclosure of expenditures of payments funneled to the opposition research firm Fusion GPS through their law firm, Perkins Coie.

The Washington Examiner reports:

A combined $1,024,407.97 was paid by the treasurers of the DNC and Clinton campaign to the law firm of Perkins Coie for Fusion’s information and the party and campaign hid the reason by claiming it was for legal services — not opposition research.

Instead, the DNC’s $849,407.97 and Clinton campaign’s $175,000 covered Fusion’s opposition research on the dossier, a basis for the so-called “Russia hoax” that dogged Trump’s first term.

The Clinton campaign and DNC argued that they were correct in describing their payment for “legal advice and services” since it was Perkins Coie that hired Fusion, however, the FEC said the law is clear and was violated.

It added that neither the campaign nor the party conceded to lying but won’t contest the finding. “Solely for the purpose of settling this matter expeditiously and to avoid further legal costs, respondent [s] does not concede, but will not further contest the commission’s finding of probable cause to proceed” with the probe, said the FEC.

The FEC fined Clinton’s treasurer $8,000 and the DNC’s treasurer $105,000.

Dan Backer, who brought the complaint for the foundation that focuses on free speech and the First Amendment, told Secrets, “This may well be the first time that Hillary Clinton — one of the most evidently corrupt politicians in American history — has actually been held legally accountable, and I’m proud to have forced the FEC to do their job for once. The Coolidge Reagan Foundation proved that with pluck and grit, Americans who stand with integrity can stand up to the Clinton machine and other corrupt political elites.”

Clinton has repeatedly defended the dossier while Trump immediately refuted its claims as nothing but a political hit job.


  1. Thats chump change to those people . The FEC needs to add a few more zeros to mesn anything .I am sure they have plenty in petty cash to cover that minimal expence

    1. Trumps suing for 72,000,000. If Hillery and crew is charged could triple amount and pay legal fees. You are right about chump change

  2. For someone that was “DEAD BROKE” upon leaving the Whitehouse, she seems to have accumulated quite a bit of WEALTH!

  3. It’s Only Money, the Clintons and DNC have too much so this small fine does not hurt them. Putting some in jail, that would make me feel like MAYBE some parts of our government are working.

    1. I am with you Rick! This is just a gesture to say this matter has already been dealt with. She needs to go to jail along with the Bidens.

  4. just fines? chump change it is for the clinton woman. SHE MUST GO TO JAIL! She committed FELONIES! HELL!”

  5. WOW… guess there is hope for the truth! Think for a minute, If HRC would have been elected, you would never know about this! Scary Stuff!

  6. What a paltry fine….they should have had to pay AT LEAST the total they spent to create and spread the lies….this amounts to a slap on the wrist! Hopefully President Trump, etc will end up suing Hillary and the DNC for damages.

  7. Pretty light as far as I am concerned. They should be in jail for betraying the people of this country. So wrong!

  8. This hardly recompenses the Nation for the damage created over the following three years of the Trump Presidency. I would hope that investigations continue.

  9. Boy, what a terrible punishment. It apparently costs only $113,000 to commit a treason against an opposition candidate and a sitting, duly elected president. This is the Democrat’s version of “the Rule of Law”. I’m certain this sort of punishment will discourage any future forays into election crimes….hold it, I had my tongue in my cheek and almost swallowed it.

    1. We have to keep up the work we are doing for our best President of our time. President Trump won that election but the truth is slowly coming out. We don’t have too much time left. We all need to fight for America if we want to keep it.

    1. Why waste all that time and tax payers money when you knew from the start you would give her only a touch on her pinkey. Are justice system is run by the crooks period.

  10. I am printing the letter from the Federal Election Commission I am going to frame it. We finally got 1 crime Hillary did and got caught for it. Lets Roll!!!!!!!!!

  11. This, hmmm-lovely platform, will not allow Constitutional FREE speech so I shall try it with a different approach: Hillary Rodham Clinton committed treason more than once. Hillary robbed federal funds sent to countries which were granted those monies because of the devastation suffered in these foreign-lands, as well. Hillary has committed ‘high crimes’. Hillary’s only punishment must be execution. No matter, you choose the approach but the truth is, Hillary must pay the ultimate price. How’s that my lovely darlings? Have I still left you triggered enough to deny me my right to speak?

  12. The punishment does NOT fit the crime by any stretch of the imagination! Something is better than nothing, but these fines amount to a slap on the wrist, for a sequence of wrongdoing and lying that was committed over 5+ years!

  13. You call that punishment? That was a slap on the hand! The FEC is just as Corrupt as Corrupt Communist HILLARY CLINTON!

  14. This is crap. Both Clintons should be in prison along with anyone who was involved in the dossier fraud. Nothing but arrest, and imprisonment for life will satisfy me.
