Trump 2020 campaign used a shell company to pay ad buyers at the center of alleged illegal coordination scheme with NRA

https://www.opensecrets.org/news/2018/12/trump-2020-campaign-coordination/

The Trump campaign funneled money to ad buyers alleged to have facilitated illegal coordination between the campaign and the NRA by routing funds through a secretive LLC that appears to be little more than a shell company, an investigation by the Center for Responsive Politics has found.

While the Trump campaign stopped reporting payments to ad buyers alleged to have facilitated illegal coordination between the campaign and the NRA after the 2016 election cycle, Trump’s 2020 campaign has continued to deploy the same individuals working for the firms at the center of the controversy through payments to Harris Sikes Media LLC — a low-profile limited-liability company operating with no website or public-facing facade whatsoever.

Facing the illegal coordination allegations are National Media, Red Eagle Media Group and American Media & Advocacy Group (AMAG), closely tied consultancies that share staff, resources and adjacent storefronts in Alexandria, Va.

CRP’s analysis of Federal Communications Commission (FCC) records found that Trump campaign political ad disclosures on file with stations across the country have continued to include signatures and names of individuals working for National Media, despite no mention of National Media or its known affiliates on any FCC or Federal Election Commission (FEC) disclosures. Those individual ad buyers’ names have simultaneously continued to be included in ad documents for the National Rifle Association (NRA) and America First, but with the ad buyers’ affiliation listed as National Media or one of its affiliates.

4. Just imagine for a moment if the Democratic Party were involved in just a fraction of the corruption

If you vote or support one Republican you are supporting a criminal and terrorist enterprise. Trump crimes and Republican Party membership are synonymous.

9. CLINTON FOUNDATION

a very well run, actual non-profit that the media breathlessly fomented the "scandal" meme during the election while the Trump Foundation was VERY CLEARLY a complete disgrace for a non-profit.

10. Good example.

The Clinton’s made some money it was legal and disclosed in tax returns. The foundation and charities are just that.

5. We may never get to the bottom of the corruption.

Justice is a slow-moving process. I can see this being uncovered 20 years from now. But unless we find a way to shut down the real “fake news,” 30% of the population will never believe it, and we will be forced to relive this in the future.

8. Trust me, I have been railing against the cororate controlled right wing M$M.

 

Control of the narrative is so important. I do see some minor cracks in the M$M dam.

I am cautiously hopeful. So much slime has been uncovered about the Trump crime family it's getting harder for the M$M to cover for Trump. As Bernard, a poster here, said a long time ago, we must tie the Republican party to Trump, we can't allow them to parachute out of the burning Trump plane.

To jail with all of the traitorous Republicans.

You are 100% right about 30% of the population, fuck them, laugh at them, condemn them, when Trump and his crime family goes down. No more passes by the Democratic party. The Bush/Cheney nightmare should have been investigated.
