Within the course of approximately 24-hours, the hysterical drumbeat by the rabid media on CNN, MSNBC, CBS, and ABC for “IMPEACHMENT” was uttered over 300-times. No doubt the left is salivating like hungry jackals circling the mighty bull, hoping to bring down the Trump Administration with another bogus claim that’s as transparent as Mueller’s Russian hoax.
The issue of campaign finance law violation has become the latest saga stemming from the Mueller probe. While the rabid response from the Left might make one think they are living through the second coming of the Watergate scandal, campaign finance violations are nothing new.
For instance, President Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign was fined $375,000 by the Federal Election Commission for campaign reporting violations – the largest amount ever imposed on a presidential campaign.
However, the pro-Obama media considered the violation to be little more than a technical infraction – an innocent oversight, barely worth mentioning. This simply illustrates the double-standard exhibited by the media along with the one-sided Mueller probe.
The fine against the Obama campaign by the FEC lays out the audit outlining the infraction committed by the campaign.
Apparently breaking campaign finance laws, regardless of the unabashed drama exhibited by the unhinged left towards President Trump, does occur and is usually remedied with a fine.
Perhaps the more sinister occurrence regarding egregious violations of campaign laws – which of course hasn’t received any attention by the leftist media – took place in 2012. Facebook voluntarily provided privileged information on millions of their subscribers to the Obama re-election campaign, which is an illegal corporate campaign contribution.
Federal law prohibits corporations from making “direct or indirect” contributions to candidates running for federal office. That ban extends beyond cash contributions to “any services, or anything of value.” In other words, corporations cannot provide federal candidates with free services of any kind. Under the Federal Election Commission’s regulations, “anything of value” includes any “in-kind contribution.”
The most troubling aspect of the Obama Facebook is the disinterest shown within the mainstream media to investigate one of their own. No doubt this should be investigated by the Federal Election Commission and potentially the U.S. Department of Justice – if the Attorney General ever decides to finally do his job.
