According to distinguished conservative activist and lawyer Dan Backer the FEC must act now to bring Democrats who violated campaign finance law in 2016 to justice or risk losing their chance.
As Backer points out, many of the violators in question were also behind the Russia Hoax. A Fraud which was instrumental in hamstringing President Trump’s first several years in office.
He argues his case at length in Real Clear Politics:
For a functioning FEC, there is an important matter that requires prompt attention — the subject of multiple, bipartisan, and well-documented legal complaints. It is the “Russian collusion” hoax. While many agencies and offices probed the scandal from their own perspectives, the clearest path to accountability for the collusion hoax is, in fact, the FEC.
The hoax began with secret payments by Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign and the Democratic National Committee to foreign agent Christopher Steele and his Russian contacts for the procurement of false, derogatory opposition research on Donald Trump. Steele (pictured) committed the bogus information to writing and was paid to spread it to Obama administration officials and liberal media elites in order to boost Clinton’s weak election bid. Along the way, Steele was aided by agents of the Ukrainian government and a DNC operative…
Which brings us back to the FEC. Responsible for enforcing campaign finance laws, the commissioners must hold accountable those who concealed payments to foreign agents and perpetrated a propaganda campaign with one purpose: ending the Trump presidency. While they ultimately failed, the perpetrators successfully interfered in an American election and unquestionably damaged the integrity of American democracy…
Those who perpetrated the “Russian collision” charade — at great cost to American democracy — should face the consequences now. The FEC must act promptly, before a statute of limitations expires. In the process, the agency needs to offer the public all relevant information about these secret transactions, uncovering the full extent of the propaganda campaign carried out by Steele, the DNC, and other actors.
