    Hillary Rodham Clinton, the 2016 presidential runner up, raised more than $1 million this week off an appeal critical of President Trump’s zero-tolerance policy at the U.S.-Mexico border and now she is giving it to pro-immigrant and pro-asylum groups protesting the president. In an email, she also urged supporters to hold or attend protest rallies against Trump. Her email said: Since I reached out to ask this community to step up and support the groups working to protect and reunite families that have been separated at the border, you’ve raised more than $1 million dollars that will be split between...

    **SNIP** Fox News has learned that one of the top donors to the “Hillary Victory Fund” (HVF) in 2016 was a Los Angeles-based attorney who is alleged to have misused company funds to create his own $22 million real estate portfolio. He has also been considered by California to be one of the state's biggest tax cheats, and allegedly has ties to the Kremlin. The donor, Edgar Sargsyan, contributed $250,000 to the Hillary Victory Fund in 2016, according to Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings, ands chaired a $100,000-a-couple Clinton fundraiser in Beverly Hills in September 2016. He is also being...

    Up to 40 Democratic parties at the state level may have participated in a scheme to feed $84 million to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in 2016, a campaign lawyer claims. Dan Backer, a Virginia-based attorney, filed a lawsuit claiming that the parties planned to bypass federal campaign contribution limits. “You had individuals giving $300,000,” Backer told the Las Vegas Review-Journal Friday. “They’re not doing it because they care about Nevada’s or Arkansas’ state party. They’re doing it to curry favor with and buy influence with Hillary Clinton.” Backer, who represents a pro-Trump political action committee called the Committee to Defend...
  • Did Liberals Got Conned? How Is Jill Stein Spending The Money She Raised For Bogus 2016 Recounts?

    Remember Jill Stein’s shoddy 2016 recounts? Remember how she raised more for this nonsense effort than for her entire 2016 campaign? She raised over $7 million for this effort, and she seems to be spending it on her staff. Not in a lavish sense, but they told Daily Beast it’s because they’re continuing the recount initiative. A bit odd since Stein promised that there would be a vote on how the rest of the fund raised would be distributed. So far, that has not happened.As liberals licked their wounds, with some still recovering from the shock of Trump’s win, Stein...

    The North Dakota senate seat currently held by Democrat Senator Heidi Heitkamp is one of the targeted seats Republicans are looking to take in the 2018 mid-terms. To flip the seat the White House helped convince Republican Kevin Cramer to challenge Heitkamp. With the North Dakota election considered a ‘toss up‘, between Heitkamp and challenger Cramer; and with election outcome looking positive toward republicans; the UniParty quickly jumps into action. Notorious UniParty control agents David and Charles Koch, aka ‘The Koch Brothers’, now begin spending money to help Heitkamp retain her seat.

    Michael Avenatti is just $10 away from impeaching President Donald Trump. Send money now if you are a Democrat desperate to have your fantasy fulfilled.  Making record numbers of appearances on various news outlets to the detriment of actually practicing law doesn't come cheap so the lawyer of porn star Stormy Daniels can use all the help he can get, especially from Democrats who think his off-scale grandstanding can somehow remove Trump from office. The June 1 New York Times in fact has reported that Avenatti has solicited money from Democrats in an article written by Kenneth Vogel, Stormy Daniels’s Lawyer Sought Help...

The group “Run For Something” cultivates up-and-coming Democrats for all levels of government. Its event, “Party For Something,” was supposed to occur June 6 at a location only disclosed if tickets ($100 to $1,000) were purchased. “June 6th: Games, drinks and building the bench with Senators Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand & Cory Booker!!” the invite states at the top. “Why?

    The Democratic National Committee's latest fundraising numbers show the party continues to have trouble with fundraising as the 2018 midterm elections approach. April 2018 marked the DNC's worst April of fundraising in a midterm election year since 2006, according to data filed with the Federal Election Commission. While the DNC raised only $7.9 million in April 2018, the Republican National Committee raised $13 million. April's numbers brought the RNC's totals to $43.8 million cash-on-hand and no debt, while the DNC's totals came to $8.7 million cash-on-hand and $5.3 million of debt. Some of the money recently spent by the DNC...

    Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane has donated $2 million to a Democratic Super PAC aiming to win back control of the U.S. Senate this November, Federal Election Commission filings show. According to the documents, MacFarlane made his $2 million donation on April 2nd, representing just under one-quarter of the PAC’s overall haul of $8.7 million. “Senate Majority PAC was founded by experienced, aggressive Democratic strategists with one mission: To win Senate races,” the group’s mission statement reads. “Running transparent, low-overhead, take-no-prisoners independent campaigns, we defend Democrats from Republican attacks, aggressively contest open Senate seats, and go after Republicans on their...

    The Koch Network is using its immigration initiative LIBRE to back a number of Democrats that are working to find a permanent legal solution for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients. The megadonor brothers are known for the regular backing of conservative causes, donating millions of dollars to back GOP candidates, but NPR reports that the LIBRE initiative is raising money to protect Democrats who have shown a willingness to work on finding a legislative fix for DACA while also backing stronger border security initiatives. "This stands out. People when they talk about the Koch network ... they point...

    Payments from Hillary for America to ZFS Holdings LLC, Clinton's Delaware-based entity, are marked as 'rent' and began last May. Hillary Clinton has sent $150,000 in leftover funds from her presidential campaign committee to a limited liability company that was established to manage her book and speaking income, filings show. Clinton registered ZFS Holdings LLC, a Delaware-based LLC, on Feb. 8, 2013, just days after leaving the State Department, records filed with the Delaware Division of Corporations show. Later, in April 2014, paperwork was filed with New York State's Department of State. ZFS's listed agent on its Delaware forms is...

My memory recalls it at $750,000. That must be nice, I...

    As Silicon Valley technology executives have amassed enormous fortunes in recent years, one relatively obscure group — the Silicon Valley Community Foundation — has emerged as the local charity of choice. Facebook's chief executive, Mark Zuckerberg, has donated stock worth more than $1.8 billion to the foundation. Reed Hastings, the founder and chief executive of Netflix, has given $100 million. And many other tech titans, including the Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey and Microsoft's co-founder Paul Allen, have donated millions.

Doug Jones in his Alabama Senate race against Judge Roy Moore, as well as $3,600 toward Pennsylvania Rep. Conor Lamb in March’s special general election. Other recipients include California Rep.
