CLINTON DONOR SUES FEC TO FORCE ACTION AGAINST HILLARY CLINTON CAMPAIGN FINANCE FRAUD

PETER PAUL GAVE $2 MILLION TO HILLARY CLINTON SENATE CAMPAIGN – YET SHE NEVER REPORTED IT TO FEC

FEC HAS TAKEN NO ACTION DESPITE CHECK COPIES AND OTHER DOCUMENTS SHOWING CLINTON CAMPAIGN FRAUD


(Washington, DC) Judicial Watch, the public interest law firm that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, today announced the filing of a lawsuit in Washington DC federal court against the Federal Election Commission (FEC) over its failure to act on a complaint concerning Hillary Clinton’s failure to report a $2 million contribution from Peter Paul, a Hollywood producer and businessman. The suit was filed Friday by Mr. Paul and Judicial Watch. Mr. Paul filed a complaint with the FEC on July 16, 2001, yet, true to form, the FEC has taken no action within the 120 statutory deadline. The lawsuit asks the court to force the FEC to act on Mr. Paul’s complaint. The case was randomly assigned to the Honorable Royce C. Lamberth. Judge Lamberth is known for looking askance at government officials who fail to follow the law.

Mr. Paul, who is represented by Judicial Watch, donated over $2 million to Mrs. Clinton’s Senate campaign as part of an effort to cement a deal for post-Oval Office employment for Bill Clinton with his companies. Mr. Paul’s story was confirmed by ABC News and is backed up by evidence which includes copies of checks, financial records, “thank you” notes from the Clintons themselves, and candid video and photos. Yet rather than indict Bill and Hillary Clinton, Peter Paul was indicted on alleged stock fraud by a U.S. attorney from Hillary Clinton’s new home state, New York.

Mr. Paul’s contributions were never reported to the Federal Election Commission, and Mrs. Clinton and her campaign lied to the media about the contributions and Mr. Paul’s funding her campaign. In custody in Brazil, Mr. Paul is seeking to cooperate with the U.S. Justice Department, so that all involved are brought to justice. A copy of the lawsuit is available by clicking HERE.

“The FEC has abundant evidence that Hillary Clinton and her campaign for Senate engaged in massive election fraud, yet it has not taken any action. It is time for the FEC to stop protecting politicians and hold them accountable when they violate the campaign finance laws,” stated Judicial Watch Chairman and General Counsel Larry Klayman.
