In a Split Decision, the FEC Overrules Career Staff and Refuses to Investigate Coordination between the Russian Government and Donald Trump’s 2016 Campaign​

The FEC’s nonpartisan professional career staff in its General Counsel’s office recommended that the FEC find “reason to believe” that the Trump campaign violated the Federal Election Campaign Act (“the Act”) by coordinating with the Russian government, and soliciting and receiving illegal in-kind donations from the Russian government.

This misconduct included soliciting Russian assistance in hacking and disclosing emails associated with Trump’s political opponents, as well as soliciting hacked documents from WikiLeaks and sharing internal polling data with a Russian intelligence officer working with factions aiming to move Ukraine into the Russian orbit.

The staff also recommended finding reason to believe that the Russian government itself violated the Act, by engaging in an illegal influence campaign in the 2016 election, failing to disclose the money spent on that campaign, and making prohibited in-kind contributions to the Trump campaign, including expending resources to hack Clinton-related servers at Trump’s request. But the FEC split 3-3 on the staff recommendation, and thus blocked the investigation from proceeding.

Another lawsuit:


Tenants suing Trump family say they got 'smoking gun' evidence from ... the Trumps​

Tenants who live in rent-regulated apartments once owned by Donald Trump’s father have just filed an amended class action complaint accusing the former president and several of his relatives of fraud and racketeering in connection with an alleged scheme to hike tenants' rents by charging inflated prices for major appliances.

Hillary's in the news again? That means there must be some new trouble for Trump soo that he's trying to distract everyone from.

Funny how he lost another NDA case:


Trump Campaign Owes $300,000 in Legal Fees After Another Failed NDA Case​

The award stems from an arbitration claim that was dismissed in part because of the “vague and unenforceable” provisions of a nondisclosure agreement.

Another case of saving big stories for their books?

Book details tension with McConnell over Trump's bid to reverse Biden's electoral win​

"I've been calling folks in those states and they're with us," Trump is reported to have told the Senate GOP leaders in a private December 2020 phone call, according to a soon-to-be-released book by New York Times political reporters Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns, both CNN political analysts.
