New leaks have come out revealing that Hillary Clinton’s campaign is indeed breaking campaign finance laws. A few weeks ago, I did an in-depth report on the lawsuit showing Governor Scott Walker’s campaign had broken campaign finance laws by coordinating with a pro-Walker Super PAC. You can watch that segment HERE. Although the case was thrown out by a corrupt judge who had benefited heavily from Walker & friends, the leaked documents proved that Walker was CLEARLY coordinating with his Super PAC. The proof even got as ridiculous as a check for ten grand made out to the Super PAC with the memo reading “Because Scott Walker asked.” Anyway, NEW leaked documents now show that Clinton’s campaign is guilty of the exact same offense. According to leaked records and reporting by the Intercept, Hillary’s campaign has ABSOLUTELY been coordinating with both Correct The Record and Priorities USA Action. Both of those are Super PAC’s and both are forbidden by the FEC from coordinating with the Clinton Campaign. One memo is addressed to Hillary Clinton and dated July 2015. It details plans to work with the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Correct The Record. This also further details collusion between the Clinton Campaign and the DNC – which was supposedly an unbiased mediator of the Democratic Primary. For supporters of Bernie Sanders, memos like this should set your hair on fire. Furthermore, the memo shows that the Clinton Campaign was planning to “build a super delegate firewall” as early as July 2015. While this doesn’t prove anything illegal, Bernie supporters were furious with the Super Delegate system and how it thwarted the popular will. Evidently even from the earliest days Clinton’s campaign was planning on using the undemocratic Super Delegates to force her nomination through. This shouldn’t surprise anyone who knows about the dirty world of politics – but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t sting like a bitch for those who supported Bernie.
Donald Trump’s campaign is also suspected of working with a pro-Trump Super PAC. And Trump’s name popped up in the dark money lawsuit against Scott Walker. He donated to Walker’s Super PAC within days of having met with Walker.
In order to fight against the overwhelming force of money in politics, I came up with the idea for CleanMoneyCandidates.org, a non-partisan non-profit designed to let people know who are the clean candidates and who are the dirty ones. It’s just getting off the ground, but please check it out.
