The left has been running around lately trying to convince us that Trump committed a campaign finance violation when he allegedly instructed Michael Cohen to send money to Stormy Daniels.
Not only is that not a fact but it is also very disingenuous to pretend that committing a campaign finance violation is always a felony or to pretend that the media hasn’t looked the other way on those violations all the time.
For example, the mainstream media didn’t seem to care when Barack Obama violated campaign finance law.
President Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign was fined $375,000 by the Federal Election Commission for campaign reporting violations — one of the largest fees ever levied against a presidential campaign, POLITICO has learned.
The fine — laid out in detail in FEC documents that have yet to be made public — arose from an audit of the campaign, which was published in April. POLITICO obtained a copy of the conciliation agreement detailing the fine, which was sent to Sean Cairncross, the chief lawyer for the Republican National Committee, one of the groups that filed complaints about the campaign’s FEC reporting from 2008.
