Hillary Clinton may have thought that she got away scot free with her shady dealings during the 2016 election.
However, she got a nasty shock this week when The Coolidge Reagan Foundation (CRF) reportedly filed a lawsuit against the campaign of Hillary Clinton for violating election laws by paying for the Steele dossier.
Quite frankly, it is pretty amazing it took this long for someone to go after Hillary on this issue. The lawsuit is centered around the Steele dossier.
After the dossier was abandoned by a Never Trump conservative, an attorney representing both the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC ponied up the cash for the dossier.
While Fusion GPS was the organization that brokered the deal, the dossier itself was put together by British national Christopher Steele. It is against election laws for any candidate to accept anything of value from a foreign national.
The tack being taken by the CRF is that the dossier should be deemed to be something of value, therefore, Hillary and the DNC violated U.S. election laws.
Democrats Hurt Themselves
This lawsuit actually came to be after Democrats more or less shot themselves in the foot on this issue. During a recent Trump interview, the president stated he would listen to foreign governments if they had dirt on a candidate.
The words had no sooner come out of Trump’s mouth when Democrats started to express outrage over the comments. Many believe this was a purposeful setup by Trump to hit Hillary over the use of the Steele dossier.
One prominent Democrat stated, “Let me make something 100% clear to the American public and anyone running for public office: It is illegal for any person to solicit, accept, or receive anything of value from a foreign national in connection with a U.S. election.”
CRF was quick to point out what is described there is exactly what Hillary Clinton and the DNC did when they took possession of the Steele dossier. In all, the DNC and Hillary Clinton reportedly paid $168,000 for the dossier.
This is a dossier, mind you, that has been largely debunked by the FBI, yet it was still reportedly used to secure FISA warrants against the Trump campaign.
Thus far, there has been no investigation into the charges made by the CRF, but the matter is still under review, so there is some hope that we may finally get to see some justice in this matter.
