While the mainstream media is still looking for Trump-Russia collusion even though it is more likely for them to find the Loch Ness monster and Sasquatch mating at this stage, they have firmly buried their heads in the sand for the breaking news of the day regarding REAL foreign meddling in the 2016 elections, namely that in the Bernie Sanders campaign.
As reported by The Daily Caller, “The Federal Election Commission (FEC) fined Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign $14,500 for accepting illegal in-kind foreign contributions from the Australian Labor Party (ALP) during the 2016 elections.”
In February 2016, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas went undercover at the Bernie campaign and showed foreign Australian nationals volunteering and working for the Sanders campaign. The tax-funded Australian Labor Party sent their young delegates here, paid for their flights, and paid them stipends. All in all, the Sanders campaign received $24,422 from the Australian tax-payers through the ALP. This is illegal. These payments are foreign contributions and it is in violation of U.S. law. Feel the burn, because these are the facts.
After Project Veritas’ video went up and viral, the only thing we heard from the media, the DNC, and the FEC were crickets. However, it seems that the FEC has come to its senses. Still, the folks over at the Bernie campaign don’t think that they did anything wrong or that they broke any rules, as a Sanders spokesperson said. Now imagine if that actually happened at the Trump campaign and that there was actual video proof for that. Wow, we would be up in arms like we haven’t been since the “Grab them by the p*ssy.” scandal! So don’t hold your breath to hear about Bernie’s illegal activities from CNN, MSNBC, or any other major leftist news networks. I wonder why…
