The time has finally come: Trump is finally beginning to take revenge for the wrongs done to him during and after the 2016 election.
How? Perhaps in the most surprising way: through bureaucracy. In a massive move, the FEC, in recognition of what happened during the Russia hoax, has fined the Clinton campaign and DNC for funding the Steele dossier and then lying about it.
The Washington Examiner, reporting on the FEC’s to-be-released memo on the fine and punishment, reported that:
The memo said the Clinton campaign and DNC argued that they were correct in labeling their payment as “legal advice and services” because it was Perkins Coie who hired Fusion GPS. But the agency said the law was clear and had been violated.
It added that neither the campaign nor the party had admitted the lie but would not dispute the finding. “Solely for the purpose of expeditious resolution of this matter and to avoid further legal expenses, Defendant[s] does not concede, but will not further challenge the Commission’s finding of a probable cause for the continuation of the investigation,” the FEC said.
The FEC, in a memo to the Coolidge Reagan Foundationwho filed her complaint more than three years ago, said she fined Clinton’s treasurer $8,000 and the DNC treasurer $105,000.
So the fines are not massive. In elections that spend billions of dollars ($14 billion was spent for the 2020 election), a few thousand dollars isn’t a significant spend.
But the action is significant as a first step, in recognition that the Clinton campaign and Democrats were behind the Steele dossier and the resulting Russia hoax; Many have known this from the start, especially on the conservative side, but it’s still a massive step in the narrative war as it shows that even the bureaucracy is admitting that Clinton and the Democrats got it wrong.
Moreover, this is another nail in the coffin of the Russia hoax: The idiots who still believe Trump is a Russian asset won’t be convinced by what Durham or Fox News says but an FEC action regarding on Clinton could be persuasive.
Even if he doesn’t, the FEC’s ruling should prove helpful to Trump, as he hits back at Clinton and others associated with the Russia hoax in a “juvenile” lawsuit; Even the FEC admitted that Team Clinton and the Democrats were behind the Steele dossier, the fake news match that lit the Russia hoax, a fact that would prove helpful to his legal team as it proves his arguments against the parties involved.
As a reminder, it was actually the Clinton campaign and the DNC that funded the Steele dossier: the DNC paid Fusion GPS $849,407.97 and the Clinton campaign coughed up $175,000; Those funds, funds that both the DNC and the Clinton campaign claimed were supposed to be spent on legal expenses, were actually being spent on Steele dossier Oppo research.
So they lied about what their funds were being used for and got caught, and in getting caught they destroyed the narrative they had spent so much time, money and effort building. It’s another vindication and another victory for Trump, a small step towards justice but one with potentially massive implications.
