Lawsuit filed against the FEC for ignoring money laundering by Clinton campaign

A lawsuit by an anti-Clinton PAC has been filed against the Federal Election Commission for ignoring complaints about money laundering by the Hillary Clinton campaign during the 2016 election.

The scheme involved up to $84 million dollars in big donations that was funneled through state Democratic parties and eventually ended up in the coffers of the Clinton campaign. The lawsuit alleges that the FEC ignored complaints about the scheme from the Committee to Defend the President (CDP), a political action committee formally known as Stop Hillary PAC.

“The Clinton machine has escaped accountability for its illegal practices for far too long,” Ted Harvey, CDP chairman, said to Fox News. “After months of review, the FEC has refused to address the Clintons’ $84 million money laundering scheme that violated several campaign finance laws.”

On Monday, the CDP filed a lawsuit against the FEC with the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. They claim that the commission failed to act, calling the inaction “arbitrary, capricious, contrary to law, and an abuse of discretion.”
