Here’s proof that a campaign colluded with a foreign entity in the 2016 U.S. presidential race.
Officials for the Democratic presidential campaign of Bernie Sanders, who was defeated by Hillary Clinton, apparently with the help of the Democratic National Committee, have paid a $14,500 civil penalty for accepting illegal foreign help.
They paid the penalty with the stipulation that they denied any wrongdoing.
But a video by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas Action shows Sanders campaign staffers in New Hampshire and Nevada accepting help from Australians who said they were funded by the Australian Labor Party, a foreign entity.
One of the Australians, Sandeep Sarah, is shown saying, “It’s like an exchange program … the equivalent of the Democrats in Australia is the Labor Party, and they’ve sent us over.”
Sarah explained the foreign political party paid for them to work for the Sanders campaign.
Another Australian, Rebecca Doyle, confirmed, that the Australian Labor Party paid for their flights, accommodations and a $60 daily stipend.
O’Keefe’s report said the foreign party also is paying a $14,500 fine without admitting liability.
John DiStaso of WMUR-TV in Manchester, New Hampshire, reported that in separate agreements filed on Feb. 14, “the FEC writes that by paying the youths’ transportation costs and stipends, the party made an illegal contribution to a U.S. political campaign and the Sanders campaign broke the law by accepting paid services by the Australians.”
O’Keefe asked: “Now that Project Veritas Action has uncovered undisputable video evidence that a foreign government illegally interfered with the 2016 presidential election, will the mainstream media finally cover it?”
The FEC action came on a complaint filed by former New Hampshire House Speaker Bill O’Brien.
The Democrats, ever since Republican Donald Trump won the election, have been claiming his campaign colluded with the Russians to defeat Clinton. But after more than a year, the special counsel probe of Robert Mueller has released no evidence of Trump-Russian collusion. In fact, evidence has emerged that Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee colluded with Russia in the crafting of an anti-Trump dossier that was leaked to the media and used to obtain a warrant to spy on a Trump adviser.
O’Keefe’s organization captured on video the Australian youths tearing down campaign signs in New Hampshire that were promoting Trump for president.
WMUR reported Project Veritas also taped the young people engaging in conventional campaign activities on behalf of the Sanders campaign.
