1. The FEC said Obama campaign failed to disclose the sources of 1,300 large donations, which together accounted for nearly $1.9 million. His presidential campaign was fined $375,000 by the Federal Election Commission for violating federal disclosure laws usnews.com/news/articles/…
2. Clinton campaign paid Perkins Coie $5.6 million in legal fees from June 2015 to December 2016, the DNC paid the firm $3.6 million in “legal and compliance consulting’’ since November 2015 —how much of that was for other legal matters and how much of it related to Fusion GPS?
3. Clinton’s campaign committee reported 37 payments to Perkins Coie over the 2016 election cycle totaling $5,631,421. The purpose for each disbursement was reported as “Legal Services.”
4. DNC reported 345 payments to Perkins Coie over 2016 election cycle totaling $6,726,407
$6,466,711 for “Legal and Compliance Consulting,”
$99,925 for “Administrative Fees,” $22,213 for “Travel,”
$49,136 for “Data Services Subscription,”
5. The DNC also reported one $66,500 payment to Perkins Coie on August 16, 2016 for “research consulting
6. Perkins Coie itself confirmed — that Hillary for America and DNC “shared the cost” of paying Fusion GPS through Perkins Coie to conduct opposition research on Donald Trump.
7. Therefore, the purpose of at least some portion of the payments to Perkins Coie was not for legal services; instead, those payments were intended to fund opposition research
8. Therefore, there is reason to believe that Hillary for America DNC filed false reports by
(a) failing to accurately report the “purpose” of disbursements, describing disbursements for “legal services” or “legal and compliance consulting” when the actual purpose was research
9. and
(b) inaccurately reporting payments to Perkins Coie that were, in reality, earmarked for Fusion GPS, in violation of FECA’s reporting requirements at 52 U.S.C.
10. You can read the full complaint document from the campaign legal center in its entirety here: campaignlegal.org/sites/default/…
11. So, both the Obama and Hillary campaigns flouted campaign finance law, paid money through backchannels and tried to influence the outcome of an entire election and now @realDonaldTrump is the one facing scrutiny?
12. Here is how it was planned: ensnare Trump in the Russia collusion narrative, taking about Stormy Daniels, get Omarosa to release her books, talk about tapes and go after his lawyer Micheal Cohen if all else failed.
13. Is it any coincidence that Michael Cohen's lawyer Lanny Davis is a Hillary Clinton acolyte just like Imran Awan's lawyer Chris Gowen?
14. And you should sit down for this one, really sit down: Imran Awan came from Pakistan on a "Diversity Lottery" around 1994-1996: in the late 1990's Pakistan began lobbying efforts in Washington DC.
15. Pakistan began shelling out $30,000 a month for the services of Charlie Wilson, a former Democratic Congressman from Texas who was a staunch ally of the country when he served in the House
16. In fact Pakistan signed a contract with the politically connected law firm of Patton, Boggs & Blow for $22,500 a month.
Guess who handled the Pakistan account?
Yes, Lanny Davis.
17. Lanny Davis said in an interview that he had talked to the White House about adding a stop in Pakistan when Mr. Clinton visits the Indian subcontinent next month.
18. To spurn a visit, Mr. Davis said, ''would be conveying a message of hostility, and pushing Pakistan in a dangerous direction away from the West and toward the Taliban.''
Sure Lanny, that's why you did it. nytimes.com/2000/02/13/wor…
19. When coincidences abound look for common patterns, people and the flow of money. Usually the same people follow the same money in rather predictable patterns, doing and saying the same thing. Repetition and not imagination is the hallmark of the vulpine and the depraved.
