It was previously reported that the Clinton campaign and the Democrat National Committee laundered $84 million in order to avoid campaign finance laws.
Now it is being learned that $150,000 of leftover campaign cash went directly to a company solely owned by Hillary herself.
Interesting, to say the least.
From Daily Caller:
Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign has transferred nearly $150,000 of leftover campaign funds to a company she solely owns in the months following her election defeat, according to filings with the Federal Election Commission (FEC).
The Clinton campaign has paid $149,457 to ZFS Holdings LLC, since May 2017 for the purpose of “rent,” FEC filings show, but the campaign has left it unclear if it’s paying at, above or below fair market value for the office space it’s renting.
“Obviously, it has a certain fishiness to it,” former FEC chairman and founder of the Institute for Free Speech Brad Smith told The Daily Caller News Foundation about the rent payments.
If ZFS is undercharging the Clinton campaign for rent, it could “constitute something of value to the committee and would thus be an in-kind contribution,” according to a 1995 FEC ruling. But if ZFS is overcharging the campaign, it could mean campaign funds are going to the company Clinton solely owns.
Using campaign funds for personal use is a violation of federal campaign law. According to Campaigns and Elections, “knowing and willful” violations of the personal use rule can result in prosecution and jail time.
Clinton registered ZFS as a single-member LLC shortly after she left the Department of State in early 2013 for the purpose of managing her speech and book income, according to financial disclosures she filed with the FEC.
In an explosive new memoir penned by Ken Starr, the former independent counsel details how he nearly brought charges of “indictment on perjury” against the twice-failed presidential candidate.
From Daily Wire:
In an explosive new memoir, former independent counsel Ken Starr revealed that he considered bringing perjury charges against Hillary Clinton after a 1995 deposition with investigators.
In Starr’s memoir, which was obtained in advance by Fox News, Starr recounts his investigation into the death of White House adviser Vince Foster and other matters related to the Whitewater investigation.
“I was upset over Mrs. Clinton’s performance, and was even considering bringing the matter before the Washington grand jury for possible indictment on perjury,” Starr wrote, according to an excerpt of “Contempt: A Memoir of the Clinton Investigation” reviewed by Fox News.
Why wasn’t Hillary forced to face the music?
Starr said that he ultimately decided not to bring charges against the then-first lady because it would be difficult to prove that she lied when she said “I don’t recall” and “I don’t remember.”
Hillary reportedly viciously bullied Vince Foster before he committed suicide, according to Free Beacon:
Hillary Clinton relentlessly browbeat her clinically depressed former law partner Vince Foster shortly before he committed suicide in 1993, according to notes from a final jailhouse interview with a former close business partner of the Clintons.
Jim McDougal, a long-time member of the Clintons’ Arkansas inner circle and a central figure in the Whitewater scandal, passed away from a heart attack in prison in 1998. But he said in a final interview before his death that Hillary Clinton had a “hard, difficult personality” and was “riding [Vince Foster] every minute” about Whitewater before Foster took his own life.
McDougal also described his ex-friend Bill as a “master con artist” who married Hillary after a “cold-blooded search” to find himself a politically beneficial wife. Bill, according to McDougal, also privately wanted to prevent Hillary from succeeding in her own political career.
McDougal, who was convicted of fraud in 1996 in connection to the controversial real estate partnership with the Clintons, sat for a number of jailhouse interviews with former Boston Globe reporter Curtis Wilkie before his death. Many of his statements were reported in his posthumous 1998 book with Wilkie, Arkansas Mischief: The Birth of a National Scandal.
Had Hillary actually been charged with perjury back in the day, there’s a decent chance she never would’ve become a United States Senator from New York.
Nor a secretary of state during Barack Obama’s first term as president.
Nor a presidential candidate in 2008 or 2016.[mashshare]
