FEC drops probe of Trump campaign

The Federal Elections Commission (FEC) voted Thursday to end its probe of former President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign, stating it found no evidence of violations.

The investigation was ended after a 4 to 1 vote, according to Axios.

The particular investigation concerned allegations of money paid by former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen to Stormy Daniels, alleging the former president violated campaign-finance law.

The $130,000 payment occurred in October 2016, allegedly involving an incident from a decade prior.

According to The Washington Times, “The panel’s two Democratic members disagreed, saying in a separate statement that the probe should have been continued.”

“To conclude that a payment, made 13 days before Election Day to hush up a suddenly newsworthy 10-year-old story, was not campaign-related, without so much as conducting an investigation, defies reality,” wrote Ellen Weintraub and Shana Broussard, according to the Times.

The investigation largely ended due to Trump nor his campaign being involved in the alleged payment. Cohen has served prison time related to other charges.

Democrats may not be happy with the conclusion, but the investigation made its decision based on the available evidence. The charges made for great publicity against Trump in the past, but the facts reveal there was insufficient evidence for the charges.

Start making money this time… Spend more time with your family & relatives by doing jobs that only require you to have a computer and an internet access and you can have that at your home. Start bringing up to $65000 to $70000 a month. I’ve started this job and earn a handsome income and now I am exchanging it with you, so you can do it too.

When are the Democrats going to start investigating their filth? Clinton’s, Hillary and Bill, Obama, the Biden clan, Eric Holder, George Soros, Harry Reid, Rice, Lois Lerner, etc. etc.

The a$$holes will all be dead before they would ever be indicted. What about all the investigations? Republicans talk one thing but never follow up. Pitiful. Weak. Swamp.

Some of them are at Gitmo waiting for tribunal trial via military intel or they are dead. Lots of arrests have occurred & lots of sealed indictments are “waiting” on the side line. There has been a lot of corruption, lying, deception, evil, etc… going on longer than we ever knew about. The Great Awakening is happening now & will be exposed to public soon. Wake up people!!!!

Democrats are guilty of most of the things they said Trump did; the entire TDS was invented by them. They couldn’t stand the fact that people did not want hillary to be president…so, they paid for the dirty dossier, and invented a lot of lies.
Think of how much good Trump could have done if they had just left him alone; and he still got amazing things done, even with them fighting every inch of the way. They’ve destroyed most of it now, and made things worse than they ever were.
I totally despise Democrats; they hate America, and American citizens.

ALL that Pres Trump did RIGHT, ALL the Dumbocrats want to do is take our nation in the WRONG direction,

If we can not be honest and admit that, and thereby vote in people who will NOT change things for the better-
then we are stuck with the wheel to keep on going THEIR way . A no ‘thank you’ for us, and to further belittle

Why is this stuff coming out now. Trump asked for a thousand different places to be checked for fraud.. nothing to see here is all he got… the media, fake news as found out to be true, i would not be surprised if the democraps didn’t send the 10,000.. with help of the Fbi, doj, piglosi, clinton, and on and on..of course no charges will be put on any democrap inside the swamp areas

Watch as Piglosi pushes her federal government control of all elections. Her ” register everyone, citizen or not, no ID required” ploy and no state control allowed is not only unconstitutional it is illegal.

Hillary, you & Obama did your damnedest to try & nail trump to the wall & destroy him, but you LOST & as a matter of fact you made America realize what a great President was suppose to be like, TRUMP!!! Again I say YOU LOST so shut up PLEASE!!!!!! That goes for all Democrats who either vote Dem. or are politicians you LOST IN 2016 & 2020 but the fraudulent voter scam with illegal votes, you put in Biden who is destroying our country!!! So maybe you should start paying more attention to who you vote for & not the party!!!
