Imagine the field day the mainstream media, aka the Democrat Communications Division, would be enjoying if any Republican, but especially party leader Donald Trump, were not only accused of illegally laundering money to funnel into his campaign fund, but the evidence were so strong as to make it a slam dunk case.
The MSM would be lit up with the story 24/7, demanding President Trump be impeached immediately. Better yet, that he be arrested, locked up, and convicted. Not tried, no need for that. Just arrest and conviction, nothing in between. Then, life in prison.
However, when the scandal involves Hitlery Clinton, the mainstream media has no interest. “Hillary did what? Oh, get a life. Nothing to see here!”

You’ve heard of Benghazi and Uranium One. But more than a year after Hillary Clinton’s resounding loss to President Trump, she must now grapple with a new scandal: An ongoing Federal Election Commission investigation into an alleged $84 million money laundering scheme orchestrated by the Hillary Victory Fund — the $500 million joint fundraising committee between the Clinton campaign, the Democratic National Committee, and Democratic state parties.
Based on former DNC Chairwoman Donna Brazile’s public comments, a memo by former Clinton campaign manager Robbie Mook, and months of reviewing FEC reports, the Committee to Defend the President has filed an FEC complaint accusing the Democratic establishment of using state chapters as straw men to circumvent campaign donation limits and launder money to Clinton’s campaign. The Hillary Victory Fund solicited six-figure donations from major donors, including Calvin Klein and “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane, “papered” them through state parties en route to DNC and then the Clinton campaign.
In reality, the fund either never transferred $84 million to state parties, sending the funds straight to the DNC, or it made the transfers without state parties having actual control of the money. In either case, the fund violated campaign finance laws in precisely the way the Supreme Court deemed illegal in its 2014 McCutcheon v. FEC ruling. And that’s only the tip of allegations in this particular iceberg.
If and when the allegations are confirmed by the FEC, Clinton’s $84 million money laundering scheme will go down as the single largest campaign finance scandal in U.S. history.
Of course, the New York Times has not devoted a single drop of ink to the $84 million scandal. While MSNBC’s lack of coverage is hardly surprising, CNN’s radio silence is deafening and once again contradicts the network’s self-described nonpartisanship. Even the Washington Post’s Dave Weigel, the only mainstream reporter to cover the scandal, acknowledged “most coverage of the FEC complaint had appeared in conservative media” before he covered it.
Can you imagine the media outrage if Republicans oversaw an $84 million money laundering scheme? Just consider the outrage they currently bear at every perceived impropriety by Trump, whether it be having a second scoop of ice cream or saying“Merry Christmas.”
