Something’s Very Fishy About The Big $$$ Secretly Passing From Trump Fund To RNC
Are state Republican parties fraudulently covering up for the Trump Victory group and/or RNC’s repeated violations of campaign finance law?
By NewsHound Ellen


Several state Republican parties have suddenly discovered they failed to report large sums received from the Trump Victory group and passed on to the RNC, The Daily Beast has reported.

As The Daily Beast explains, the Trump Victory group could legally skirt campaign finance laws by collecting large sums from donors, then parceling out the money to states’ Republican parties which could, in turn, give the money to the RNC.

But while the RNC reported getting the money from the state parties, an astonishing number “forgot” they gave it. For example, The Daily Beast notes that the Arkansas GOP blamed “clerical errors” when it reported a previously undisclosed $3.5 million in transfers with Trump Victory, a group it has never officially joined. Hawaii said it missed nearly $1.7 million “due to a misunderstanding regarding the reporting requirements.”

When the FEC wanted to know how the RNC reported receiving money from states that had not reported giving it, the RNC blamed the states, The Daily Beast reports.

But wait, there’s more: Some of the state committees didn’t even have bank accounts at the bank used by both Trump Victory and the RNC. Others seem to have recently “found” accounts they initially failed to report.

This tidbit from The Daily Beast suggests that Trump Victory and the RNC repeated what they got away with in 2016:

In 2019, the [FEC] slapped the Wyoming GOP with a major fine for its unreported 2016 transfers. The report cited allegations of suspicious banking activity, pointing to concerns that funds were transferred directly from Trump Victory to the RNC, “rendering all FEC reports concerning those transfers fraudulent.”

The General Counsel recommended a sweeping investigation. The Republican-appointed commissioners, however, voted it down.


Will this get swept under the rug under a Biden presidency?

3. Interesting, though SOP for them. I doubt any group of Pubs has

been missing an opportunity to benefit from electoral corruption.

But for that last (!), should we really worry that this Democratic administration is complicit in Republican crimes? Already busy "sweeping them under the rug"?

Or should we automatically reject the pernicious poison too many have allowed themselves to be trained in of projection, laundering, and false equalization of Republican betrayal and corruption onto the Democratic Party?

If anyone wants to know why good people who want good things lose to a minority gone rotten, a huge clue is right here.

4. It's an elaborate money-laundering scheme.

Meat's back on the menu, boys!

5. Yes. Yes it is!

The Biden Administration is faced with a tough choice: It can devote its energy and perhaps limited time as a majority by either governing or investigating.

Any investigation into these crappy practices will take time away from our ability to legislate and govern our way out of what a DU poster on another thread called "the steaming pile of shit" Biden inheirited from "the other guy".

I think this is the difficult choice Garland was trying to convey to us yesterday. trump embedded so many trolls and synchopaths into the Justice Department that it will take time to work through the administrative abyss to get rid of them and keeping them from mischief in the meantime is going to sap the department of its intellectual energy for the next year of so.

We, as Democrats, are not possessed of the criminal mind that trump possessed. We have a conscience and will follow the protocols and rules of law to "right the ship"...even though pure, unadulterated, criminal intent would be more efficient we will never stoop that low.

JMHO

6. Too many of the watchdogs have been put to sleep

Intentionally underfunding enforcement has a high cost. This is part of what the Republican “less government” is meant to accomplish.
