The Week: Deadlocked FEC declines to investigate Trump over Stormy Daniels hush payment
The Federal Election Commission announced Thursday that it will not investigate possible campaign finance violations by former President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign, tied to a $130,000 hush payment made to adult film actress Stormy Daniels.
The New York Times reports, “Two Republican commissioners voted to dismiss the case while two Democratic commissioners voted to move forward.”
“The facts are well known to all. The hush money payment was done at the direction of and for the benefit of Donald J. Trump. Like me, #Trump should have been found guilty. How the FEC committee could rule any other way is confounding.” @nytimes https://t.co/DxvgcDFyVQ
