(AbsoluteNews.com) – Hillary Clinton’s team paid for the highly controversial Steele dossier during the 2016 presidential campaign. In 2018, the Coolidge Reagan Foundation filed an FEC complaint against the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Clinton campaign. The regulatory agency recently released its decision and former President Donald Trump is ecstatic about it.
On Tuesday, March 29, the FEC fined the DNC $105,000 and the Clinton campaign (Hillary For America) $8,000. The agency took issue with the way the parties paid Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm that hired former British spy Christopher Steele. The payments were reportedly funneled through a law firm, Perkins Coie, which violated election rules for tracking expenditures.
Former President Donald Trump, who was the target of the Steele dossier, praised the FEC’s decision. He said the fine revealed the “corruption,” calling it “un-American” and saying it shouldn’t ever be allowed to happen again. The 45th POTUS asked, “Where do I go get my reputation back?”
President Donald J. Trump:
