The complaint from the nonprofit Campaign Legal Center said the Democrats effectively hid the payments from public scrutiny, contrary to the requirements of federal law. By law, campaign and party committees must disclose the reason money is spent and its recipient.

“By filing misleading reports, the DNC and Clinton campaign undermined the vital public information role of campaign disclosures,” said Adav Noti, senior director of trial litigation and strategy at CLC and a former FEC official. “Voters need campaign disclosure laws to be enforced so they can hold candidates accountable for how they raise and spend money. The FEC must investigate this apparent violation and take appropriate action.”

Media reports on Tuesday alleged that a lawyer for the Clinton campaign hired Fusion GPS to investigate Mr. Trump in April 2016. The private research firm reportedly hired Christopher Steele, a former British spy with ties to the FBI, to conduct the opposition research, and he compiled a dossier containing allegations about Mr. Trump’s connections to Russia.

    No body really cares who paid for the dossier. That’s like saying ” who prepared Chump’s Crooked Tax Returns?” No body cares who prepared the Returns. But like the Tax Returns and the dossier, everyone wants to know exactly WHAT INFORMATION IS INSIDE. Plain and simple

    A complaint was filled with the FEC, they haven’t even started the investigation. So far all there is here is a complaint by the Campaign Legal Center.

      We will see when the evidence is presented. Until then it is something for the media to either ignore or investigate. Have any guesses of what the media will do on this issue???

        MSM…
        Will treat this situation as Only Opposition Research…
        Especially since it involves The DNC and The Hillary Campaign…

    It should be noted that John McCain was in on the fake dossier. McCain is one of the Keating Five, who helped Keating defraud investors and the elderly, and caused a recession, with the Savings & Loan scandal. McCain married into a crime family. McCain sent birthday greetings to a Mafia Godfather in Tucson. McCain is corrupt, so corrupt, he’d be in prison, if he were a normal American citizen. The Bolles murder was the killing of a journalist about to expose the McCain family wealth’s origins in major crime. McCain is as criminal as his friend Hillary. Their criminal lives tie them together.
