Can we have a balance view about President Trump? What's your take on him? Will he go on to become a successful president? Not only for The USA Citizen but the world at large? Soo much is on the media.. you can't hardly find any positives, but I feel he is a business man and a deal maker, surely a good thing for US people?

I am not worried about what Trump has done, as he implied he was going to do this so it wasnt such a big shock for me. I am more concerned what he will do in the future (things we dont know about yet), Especially with the trade with Bangladesh as it is a "muslim" country.

Tbh living away from the USA has not directly affected me so far with their politics, but perhaps if I need to go their for job purposes I might have issues.

But one thing that seems funny is USA is the same country that lived through the period of voting in W Bush twice! Also how it swung from having a mixed colour President to an extreme right wing President.

Also the number of celebs gathering some PR off this anti Trump revolution is funny to me

Pros:
One of his executive order was to get rid of TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership) which would have really impacted the garments sector of Bangladesh. USA is the single largest export destination for BD garments and TPP was a scary proposition given the advantage Vietnam would have achieved.

Although highly unlikely, but if there is anyone in the world who can take on the hypocrisy of the Gulf states than Trump is the man. I will be the first person to admit that I resent those GCC scumbags as much as I resent Donald Trump and I hope Trump squeezes them.

Trump thinks like a businessman first and then President. The very reason that motivated him to revoke TPP is why he will not even touch GCC. He has personal business interests in most of the GCC countries and they are all massive investments.

Also the executive orders he has signed and will be signing soon will have serious impact on Europe. Russia has always been interested in wrestling back their control over Eastern Europe and it's becoming increasingly clear Trump has no problem with that. He has even said he doesn't care about EU.

He is who he is,we have to cope with it.

Maybe he may do some good things,maybe get the US economy booming which is good for everyone.
I know he is doing some sad stuff but what choice do we have.
Do we protest like the Democrats and their followers do,which will just make him madder,or engage him.

Think Turnbull here is doing the right thing he is not playing the man,the Greens are telling us to tear up AnZuS,which is crazy,who would defend a richly sourced state from invasion.

I have softened my approach to Ukraine let Russia have it,and maybe China Taiwan and the South West seas in areas.

Fact is under Obama and Clinton we were heading to ww3 with China and Russia,maybe we have to give them some leg room.
Of course we don't want a trade war with China,he showing his immaturity there.

From what I can tell, Quebec has larger population of Syrian immigrants...of course they are Syrian Christians so maybe they aren't considered "foreign" or "Arab".

I hope the Trumpets are willing to depart from the official administration line and realize that Alexandre Bissonette is not Muslim (as far as we know).

Anders Breivik is not muslim.
Dylan Roof is not muslim.

Not easy to impeach a president. Only happened once and there have been some **** presidents eg Coolidge. The guy bragged about raping women and 1 month later won in a landslide. Thats like the Pandya over to Mushfiq in WT20, lol.

Trump did not happen in a day, it happened because of our bigotry.

We can only take the moral high ground if we are willing to protest against all conservative government who oppress people.

The six gulf countries from GCC do not accept refugees. We remain quiet.
Kuwait bans immigration from 5 countries including Syria and no one says anything.
Saudi Arabia considers their land as holy ground and bans non muslims from a lot of its land and yet we seem to be fine with that.

Anyone writing a blog or critisizing islam has to fear for his life in Bangladesh and Pakistan and yet we decide to ignore, not to mention the same people killing the bloggers and free thinkers are responsible for holey artisan.

We had Vested property act in Bangladesh for 30 years and hindu lands were taken from them and yet we kept a blind eye . Infact 90% of bengalis dont even know what act I am talking about.

So bottom line, if we cannot or did not protest agaisnt the above than we have no right to protest against trump. Because we created Trump.

Incorrect actually.

None of Trumps supprters have even heard of "Bangladesh" or "GCC" or "vested property act". In fact if you told them Trump tower is located in Manhattan, 75% of would have no idea where on a map or in which state "Manhattan" is located. You can't be "created" by something you don't know about.

I'll tell you what did create Donald Trump.

Racism and bigotry have always existed in America. The civil war didn't end it, it just changed the way its manifested. 100 years after reconstruction Blacks were physically barred from voting...recollect fire hoses being used on them when they PEACEFULLY protested.

After MLK used Christian principles to induce shame in a substantial number of white people, and a majority of "liberals", segregation ended, the N word became taboo, and being a racist became the anathema rather than the rule.

But a majority of whites still held to objectively racist views. Of course the definition of racist has been changed. So if you haven't actually lynched a black guy, said the N word publicly, or still own slaves...you "cannot be a racist" because "some of your friends are black".

But these I'm-not-a-racists support at EVERY instance any and all issues that would be the detriment of Black people.

To quote Trevor Noah, "how is a black person supposed to air his/her grievances?"

But since the time of MLK, it was taboo to be OPENLY racist.You couldn't make BLANKET statements against black people, Jews, gays, hispanics, or any other minority group and be taken seriously. Most likely, you'd lose your job...even if you worked for Fox News.

Except for Islam or Muslims.

That was the one group post 2000 that you could make blanket statements with and still be considered to hold a "valid" enough idea to get mainstream coverage on platforms like ABC, NBC, CNN, etc.

The interesting thing about bigotry is that when you allow it to fester against one group, it tends to expand and infect every other group, albeit it slowly.

What do you think MLK meant when he said "injustice anywhere is a threat of justice everywhere?" Or the German guy who said "first they came for the Jews and I didn't speak out because I wasn't Jewish...?"

Islamophobia - not genuine constructive criticism of Muslims - but Islamophobia was never going to satisfy the Rabid Right. Now you have Walls being built against Mexicans...why? Because who will resist? Now you have AGs who will essentially give the green light to cops shooting black men...why? Because who will resist?

First they came for the Muslims...

The way I see it, its "liberals", who have the most to lose...not Muslims.

We didn't have due process to begin with...Obama brought some but that was always temporary and conditional. Muslim countries were still going to be invaded, if not by American drones, then by Russian MIGs.

Now whats going to happen when the Supreme Court gets a 7-2 bench in favor of the "conservatives?"

Will it stand up for women? Will it stand up for LGBTs? Will it stand up for abortion rights?

And will it stand up for the "liberal" brown man who voted Trump for only reasons that "liberal" brown man knows?

The next 8 years will reveal all these answers and more.

Liberals did not create Donald Trump.

"Liberals" created Donald Trump by cherry picking which aspects of Liberalism they wanted to uphold in order to keep their ego satisfied.

I cherry pick all the time...but the key point is I don't call myself a "liberal" or a "conservative" even if I side with one of them on 90% of issues and with a 100% voting record.

Tell me this, when Hefazot tries to demean women, turns every minority (non muslims) of Bangladesh into second class citizens, how many of us resisted?

Forget hefazots, I have been to countless sermons in Bangladesh where the imam openly mocks the hindus (tell me you never heard it). I have studied in an english medium school (DT), where our physics teacher openly said "Jews cannot be trusted". This is the bangladesh of today unfortunately.

Who are we to talk against Trump when we treat refugees in Bangladesh (biharis and rohingyas) worse than Trump can ever imagine. I am not even going to mention about the indigenous people.

Look at this forum itself. We are so huge on protesting against Trump and his anti muslim stance, yet few days back there were hindu temples burned and destroyed in Bangladesh and no one showed even a spec of remorse.

The above is not only true for Bangladesh but most citizens in most muslim countries.

You think the world is blind to our bigotry? No they are not...

As i said before... Please protest against Trump, but also include all the conservative leaders that oppress people. Dont pick and choose and dont be a bigot, otherwise you are no better than a trump supporter.

I have been a liberal all my life, but we are slowly becoming a minority. I am not talking about being a liberal in USA because I am a minority and be a conservative in Bangladesh because I am a majority

There were plenty of people who opposed Hefazot. Hundreds of thousands of people. There were mass protests and there is a unanimous support in all the important places. Daniel Pipes talks about the 5 Ps...politicians, police, press, and some others I can't recall as being paramount in the fight against Islamism in Europe. All the Ps in Bangladesh are aligned against the perversion of Islam that Hefazot represents.

I don't understand why you expect anything decent from the village educated and politically motivated mullahs...they are the rabble rousers of their society. They are the Steve Bannon's of Bangladesh.

If you are a liberal, you have more to lose with the rise of global conservatism unless you have bleached your skin and died your hair and legally changed your name. I can not claim to be a liberal because I'm simply not. I cannot claim to be a conservative because I'm just not.

Do you believe strongly in a woman's right to have fair and necessary access to healthcare? Do you believe that society has a moral responsibility to fairly redistribute resources so that even the poorest people have access to economic mobility? Do you believe that capital punishment is problematic because no justice system is free of bias? Do you believe that LGBT people should have equal rights to straight people?

If you answered Yes to any of those, you've got more to lose than I do, because none of those things affect me directly at the current time. Current time being a significant qualifier.

If you have answered No to any of those, you aren't "liberal" or progressive by the 21st century Western definition of those terms.

Movements like Trumps cannot be supported in part because part of it is "acceptable" or OK. Because then everyone will support some aspect and he will then garner 100% support and you will end up screwing yourself.

Thats not the definition of a bigot or bigotry. That may be a manifestation, but that is not specific to an unbiased person.

For example, ISIS' views are also "consistent" regardless of what corner of the world they are in. Dhaka to San Bernardino, was there any inconsistency in ISIS ideology? No. They hate anyone who doesn't hold their views or advance their objectives whether in Syria or America.

The definition of a bigot is a person who exhibits bigotry, or prejudice and hatred towards others. There may also be legal nuances beyond that depending on jurisdiction...for example beating up Jews is a hate crime...beating up left handed Jews is just assault (example from Law and Order TV show).

You are defining hypocrisy, but even then not really.

For example take the noted Middle East policy expert and zionist Daniel Pipes. He has stated himself that Conseravtives in the US and EU need to back conservatives in their countries and promote Liberalis in Muslim countries because it guarantees their interests. Even that is not inconsistent. Its very consistent, in fact.

Their is still many unemployed,many not liking the costs associated with Obamacare its gone up a lot,the police haven't changed,on the other side crime hasn't changed.
Their hasn't been a rainy day since Bill Clinton or Ronald Reagan.Obamas' gains were modest.

I am not saying Trump is the answer,but you have to look at the electorate.
Another thing,everytime a Repiblican gets appointed their is protest,the Democrats protests,the leftists protests,I mean these protests are well organised.Protests started the day after he was elected.

I am not sure what you are trying to say, but just to be clear my only point was

I think this kind of things happened even before, thousand years ago...

still happening today.. and still will continue to happen

you have to remember, everything won't be perfect...

just to use that reason like you don't say or stand up for minorities...

doesn't mean you can stand up for the majority..

I find this logic very hard to understand...

The world is being divided here.. now its heading towards a religious kind of battle.. bigger than those things you mentioned..

its like you trying to say you can protest against Trump because you are not protesting against others that are against minorities? very strange.

its a poor excuse that you can't protest or show concerns for one issue if you don't show concerns for all and every single one of them. this issue is particularly important because it affects us personally living in US. so I can't speak out about the injustices of the country I am living in because I don't pay much attention or protested about rights in gulf countries?

I am not saying ignore hindu/minority rights in BD but just scream about Palestinian rights. That is hypocritical. But as an American (Bangladeshi by birth) I care more about US/Canada than issues in BD. And I care more about BD than let's say about North Korea.

I felt sad by what Tonmoy said.

He started calling people bigot just because people don't protest for the minority?

that's awful bro, really awful. especially as you don't have any clue about people's circumstances etc

I did not call you or anyone here bigot,
I am not sure if you really did not understand my message or just pretend to but in either case I have nothing to explain to you further.

but just for mufi, please note, If someone is directly impacted like you than ofcourse you have every right to feel more aggrieved. Unlike you and unfortunately for a lot of us, we are not impacted by Trump. We dislike him and rightly so, but when it comes to our own society (muslim society) we embrace people who are worse than Trump.

Anyways to get back to the real matter in hand. Trump will make it hard to attain H1B visa, that will probably spell doom for the indian IT industry. Not to mention the tech industry in US would suffer too.

I have a blank mind when it comes to Trump.
My curioisity is what he will do next.
He has said he won't take refugees from Nauru,that Obama promised.
Made our pm look a foolish and neutral.
But yet I have a blank.
Yes I am white.
I am not for him.
I am not against him.

I didn't like Clinton she was a ***** liar.

I can see arguments for and afainst him,clearly.
I just remain blank.
Lets see what he does after 4 or 8 years,and then judge.
You can't blame him for sticking to his election promises.
In Australia we have hard core promises and non core promises.In otherwise whoever is elected Liberal or Labor they never do what they say at the election,their is always a nasty surprise.

I am not sure what you are trying to say, but just to be clear my only point was

We can only take the moral high ground if we are willing to protest against all conservative government who oppress people. Ask your conscience what percentage of people are are even bothered when minorities in our parts of the world are subjected to harassment and torture.

The same percentage - give or take - of Americans who denounced Dylan Roof when he killed 9 black churchgoers in South Carolina.

But its foolish to think that is how "moral high ground" is attained - if it exists at all, to begin with.

Your mother and my mother both get the flu...is it realistic, logical, or sane for one to expect me to spend as much time inquiring about your mother's condition as I do mine?

I don't think it would be. Thats just foolish and in the case at hand very counterproductive.

Trump did not happen in a day, it happened because of our bigotry.

We can only take the moral high ground if we are willing to protest against all conservative government who oppress people.

The six gulf countries from GCC do not accept refugees. We remain quiet.
Kuwait bans immigration from 5 countries including Syria and no one says anything.
Saudi Arabia considers their land as holy ground and bans non muslims from a lot of its land and yet we seem to be fine with that.

Anyone writing a blog or critisizing islam has to fear for his life in Bangladesh and Pakistan and yet we decide to ignore, not to mention the same people killing the bloggers and free thinkers are responsible for holey artisan.

We had Vested property act in Bangladesh for 30 years and hindu lands were taken from them and yet we kept a blind eye . Infact 90% of bengalis dont even know what act I am talking about.

So bottom line, if we cannot or did not protest agaisnt the above than we have no right to protest against trump. Because we created Trump.

You said Trump happened for our bigotry, that's wrong, and I can't allow you to make such statement without actually knowing people's circumstances, especially in US. Secondly you said in the last paragraph if we can not protest against x,y,z we can't protest against trump. I find this hilarious. Anyway back to topic, his apparently having a go at Australians immigrants.

SportingBD
February 3, 2017, 04:00 AM
My point is simple, why would someone protest something that is happening say in Bangladesh to minority people when they are living say in China, Japan, UK, US, Russia, UAE, Saudi etc? If that is the case you would find that in every country somehow minority is being oppressed in different ways, would you than say everyone that is living in different parts of the world should protest? If that was the case than the world would have protested for the Rhoinga Muslims? But no not everyone does. Here the protest is big becuase Trump has made a Muslim-Christian thing, and you would know it somehow has impact on all/most Muslims, as they feel like how you can label nearly everyone bad for some bad people. I am all for protesting for minority if it's in my country in U.K. and if it's for a good cause, it depends on people individual prospective and understanding of the reason for protest etc.

I don't like when ppl get messianical about a leader.
They did with Obama,and their were no miracles there,yes things got better,but in some ways things got worse.

I am the same with the new pope,people rave about him,but whats he actually done,I mean the catholic church still covers up child sexual abuse.
Just the same with Trump people are running round like chickens saying he is the next anti christ,he is going to drop the bomb etc etc.

Lets see the first protest was women,and what was it about,clear and simple abortion and abortion rights.
Don't see anyone religious saying here we should abort foetuses. And Hilary Clintin wanted late term abortions,for goodness sakes.

Do people look at peoples policies.
Yes i looked at Trumps policies,some were real ****.

Me myself I just want him to simulate the world economy,thats all period.
The world including the likes of the Eu have been flatlining,Japan not so good and China is using a lot of debt to stimulate its economy.World wise the world economy not in a strong shape.

Anyways to get back to the real matter in hand. Trump will make it hard to attain H1B visa, that will probably spell doom for the indian IT industry. Not to mention the tech industry in US would suffer too.
On the contrary this is a loophole/problem that should've been addressed by lawmakers long time ago. There's a whole lot of confusion surrounding H1B visas. I read the executive order that was allegedly leaked by the press. It only asks lawmakers/industry experts to evaluate the current system to determine if it requires amendment and seeks recommendations in the case of amendment.

The H1B visa was created to allow US employers to employ foreign workers under special circumstances when they could not find suitable local candidates. The minimum salary for these highly skilled workers was set to $60,000 almost two decades ago. Adjusted for inflation and increased demand, two decades later these jobs should easily pay $100k+, but the minimum salary requirement for H1B visas was never changed. In recent years they found that some of the largest Indian IT firms were gaming the system and exploiting this loophole at the expense of American workers. In many cases American workers with real experience are being overlooked for foreign workers who have little to no experience. Recently Disney fired 400 US workers only to replace them with H1B visa holders at much cheaper salaries. Unfortunately this has become a broader trend.

According to bills that are being proposed by lawmakers, what will likely happen is the minimum salary of H1B workers will be raised to $100K-$130K, which will provide companies better incentive to try and fill the positions with US workers. If they can't find US workers they can always sponsor foreign workers as all other Software companies are doing anyway. This is a very fair proposition.

Accurate assessment :applause: all jingoism aside this is portrayed as bad by the organisations who were exploiting this loophole. All these organisations wanted was to exploit the system and the H1B employee by spending less than the market rate.

Consulting organisations charge end clients 1.5-2 times(approx) the salary paid to the H1B employees with this model. They get fat at the expense of the H1B employee and the state.

I'm not sure he's doing any of that. Despite voting against him, I was hopeful he would put his money where his mouth is and take some actions, whether it manifested in the form of infrastructure spending, healthcare or even immigration reform. I don't see him doing any of that effectively.

Any POTUS is at his powerful best in the first few months of taking office, after which their ability to effect change diminishes drastically. At the beginning they have the backing of the people, their own party and even the opposition is careful not to show too much resistance against every executive order signed by or bill backed by the president.

He has to understand he's already the POTUS he doesn't need to campaign again until 2020. He should try to bridge the divide he created and unite the nation under one banner now. That's the ONLY way he can accomplish anything. He can't tweet his way out of every hole he digs for himself.

Spot on, Fazal uncle and my young brother Rifat.

I have been to Israel six times in the past 10 years and I have Israeli friends who constantly get into physical fights/demonstrations in support of the Palestinians, opposing and demonstrating against the injustice done the Israeli government and law enforcement/military, and the oppression done by the Israeli government against it's critics (jewish, moslems, Palestinians from Hebron, Israeli Arabs, Israeli Christians, progressive women)! On a daily basis. I have seen my Israeli Jewish friends' daughters getting red paint thrown at by hard-liner/orthodox jewish guys on the bus in Tel-Aviv for simply refusing to move away front the front seat of the bus. And the girls were asked that, because they are girls, impure, someone who bleeds (menstruate)! I shouted against the Fos but didn't get into physical altercation, because I was a coward and didn't want to get arrested in Tel-Aviv. Bottom line is just because someone is jewish or Israeli should NOT automatically be considered BAD.

And any moron that thinks Bernie Sanders is a pro-Israel and is a unsympathetic and not disgusted at the Israeli action against the Palestinians is a complete clueless imbecile, period!

Being born jewish, moslem, catholic or atheist, agnostic is NOT a crime, causing genocide is, hurting another living being is, hurting another one of the Lord's creation is.

The moment there is some form of movement in the Russia election probe, he diverts the attention by tweeting about Kim. This has become a special weapon for Donald Trump to use, just purely for killing off any strong uproar about Russia election probe. Smart guy.

TE bhai has already answered.

But the issue is not about his business interest at all. You need to follow the context.

Obamacare Repeal and replaced failed once again this week. He goes to Alabama (deep red state) for a campaign for a very conservative candidate. The rally was almost entirely white. Instead of addressing real issues, he goes off script and focuses on race issues. Taking a knee has been a symbol of protest for police brutality against African American. Kaepernick started this gesture back in 2016 (first sitting out on bench and then taking a knee). Soon others followed. Meanwhile Curry (NBA) suggests he might not to WH (due to current administration's racist harboring, see Charlottesville) which has been a tradition for all Champion team (GSW won NBA in June). So Trump rescinds the invitation next day. And then LJ calls Trump a bum haha.

that is a very high level summary of the issue. that is the context. nothing related to your business interest/sponsors/or his attempt to take down NFL.

finally it might be box office entertainment for those outside US. but don't think US policies don't affect you or anyone outside of US. US is still the only superpower in the world and its influence reach every corner of the world. so everyone is impacted by her course of action.

He is playing his base well. The problem I have with this guy is instead of running the country and the world with all its problems.. he is having a field day which almost feels like trolling ppl but he holds a lot of power... It's ridiculous.

Regardless, I actually agree that players should not be allowed to kneel during national anthem. It is disrespectful. There are many ways you can bring awareness to injustice.

I will open a new thread on this maybe.....

While I respect kaepernick, i particularly dislike him first sitting on the bench and then after lot of pressure kneeling during the anthem.

Let me put it another way: A muslim guy tired of Islamic radicalism decides to go and burn the Quran in front of everyone at mosque. Yes free speech is all great but that's just not the way my friend.

Though i agree with Donald, he should however keep his opinin to himself as the president of the US. He shoudl unite Americans... this is childish.

Well the trade wars on full swing. USA has made it fully obvious that they are targeting China. The Chinese must have been infuriated when the steel and aluminum tariff exclusion doesnt include them despite being a smaller supplier to the US.

Yesterday China increased its number of products and categories to tax from the USA, which now includes electronic products.

1 of the reasons USA might be poking China, is because China wants to invest in its one belt strategy and source products from neighbouring countries.

On behalf of President Trump and the American people, I wish Bengalis everywhere a joyous New Year. We commemorate this important day along with all those from Bangladesh, India, and around the world who come together today to mark the arrival of the New Year,” said Acting Secretary of State John Sullivan.

He said Pahela Baishakh is an opportunity for those who speak Bangla as a mother tongue, of all faiths and beliefs, to celebrate their rich history and culture with beautiful parades, fairs, and dances, it said.

“Here in the United States, we take this opportunity to thank the Bangladeshi American community for its outstanding contributions to our nation, our economy and our culture. We join all of you in looking toward a bright future, and wish you the best in the year to come,” Sullivan said in a statement.

US President Donald Trump has assured Bangladesh of continuing to exert its pressure on Myanmar to create necessary conditions for the safe and voluntary return of the Rohingyas to their homeland.

Trump expressed his country’s stance in a letter sent to Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

“The United States will continue to pressure Myanmar to create necessary conditions for the safe and voluntary return of the Rohingya people to their homeland,” he said in the letter.

US Ambassador in Dhaka Marcia Bernicat handed over the letter to the prime minister during a courtesy call on Hasina at her official residence Ganobhaban on Thursday.

A Myanmar military response to insurgent attacks last month in Rakhine state sent more than 410,000 Rohingya Muslims fleeing to neighboring Bangladesh.

Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said she spoke to US President Donald Trump on Monday about Rohingya Muslims flooding into her country from Myanmar, but she expects no help from him as he has made clear how he feels about refugees.

As Trump left an event he hosted at the United Nations on reforming the world body, Hasina said she stopped him for a few minutes.

“He just asked how is Bangladesh? I said ‘it’s doing very well, but the only problem that we have is the refugees from Myanmar’,” Hasina told Reuters in an interview. “But he didn’t make any comment about refugees.”

Keep America Great. 2020.

I seriously hope you are being sarcastic. If not I am genuinely worried.

Bombshell: FEC Records Indicate Hillary Campaign Illegally Laundered $84 Million
The mainstream media took no notice of a federal court filing that exposes a $84 million money-laundering conspiracy Democrats executed during the 2016 presidential election.

APRIL 24, 2018
The press continues to feed the dying Russia collusion conspiracy theory, spending Friday’s news cycle regurgitating Democrat talking points from the just-filed Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act lawsuit against the Trump campaign, WikiLeaks, and Russia.

Yet the mainstream media took no notice of last week’s federal court filing that exposes an $84 million money-laundering conspiracy the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign executed during the 2016 presidential election in violation of federal campaign-finance law.

That lawsuit, filed last week in a DC district court, summarizes the DNC-Clinton conspiracy and provides detailed evidence from Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings confirming the complaint’s allegations that Democrats undertook an extensive scheme to violate federal campaign limits.

From Bundling To Money Laundering
Dan Backer, a campaign-finance lawyer and attorney-of-record in the lawsuit, explained the underlying law in an article for Investor’s Business Daily: Under federal law, “an individual donor can contribute $2,700 to any candidate, $10,000 to any state party committee, and (during the 2016 cycle) $33,400 to a national party’s main account. These groups can all get together and take a single check from a donor for the sum of those contribution limits—it’s legal because the donor cannot exceed the base limit for any one recipient. And state parties can make unlimited transfer to their national party.”

This legal loophole allows “bundlers” to raise large sums of money from wealthy donors—more than $400,000 at a time—filtering the funds to the national committees. Democrats and Republicans alike exploit this tactic. But once the money reaches the national committees, other limits apply.

Suspecting the DNC had exceeded those limits, a client of Backer’s, the Committee to Defend the President, began reviewing FEC filings to determine whether there was excessive coordination between the DNC and Clinton. What Backer discovered, as he explained in an interview, was much worse. There was “extensive evidence in the Democrats’ own FEC reports, when coupled with their own public statements that demonstrated massive straw man contributions papered through the state parties, to the DNC, and then directly to Clinton’s campaign—in clear violation of federal campaign-finance law.”

On behalf of his clients, on December 15, 2017 Backer filed an 86-page complaint with the FEC, asking the FEC to commence enforcement proceedings against Hillary Clinton, her campaign and its treasurer, the DNC and its treasurer, and the participating state Democratic committees. The complaint, and an attached exhibit consisting of nearly 20 pages of Excel spreadsheets, detailed the misconduct and provided concrete evidence supporting the allegations. In short, here’s what happened and what the evidence establishes.

Think Of It Like A Shell Game With Millions Of Dollars
During the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton, the DNC, and participating state Democratic committees established the Hillary Victory Fund (HVF) as a joint fundraising committee to accept contributions from large donors, some exceeding $400,000. So far, so good. To comply with campaign finance law, the HVF needed to transfer the donations to the specified recipients, whether the Clinton campaign, down-ticket Democrats, the DNC, or state committees.

FEC records, however, show several large contributions reported as received by the HVF and the same amount on the same day (or occasionally the following day) recorded as received by the DNC from a state Democratic committee, but without the state Democratic committee ever reporting the contribution.

For instance, the HVF reported transferring $19,500 to the Mississippi Democratic Party on November 2, 2015, and the Democratic National Committee reported receiving $19,500 from the Mississippi Democratic Party on November 2, 2015. But the Mississippi Democratic Party never recorded the receipt or the disbursement of the $19,500, and without the Mississippi Democratic Party controlling the funds, the HVF’s contribution to the DNC violated campaign finance law.

Over a 13-month period, FEC records show some 30 separate occasions when the HVF transferred contributions totaling more than $10 million to the DNC without any corresponding record of the receipt or disbursement from the state parties, thus illegally leap-frogging the state Democratic parties.

On the other hand, of the contributions state parties reported as received from the HVF, 99 percent wound up at the DNC. They were transferred immediately or within a day or two, raising questions of whether the state Democratic committees truly exercised control over the money—something necessary under campaign finance law to allow a later-legal transfer to the DNC.

Again, the evidence is damning. According to Politico, “[w]hile state party officials were made aware that Clinton’s campaign would control the movement of the funds between participating committees, one operative who has relationships with multiple state parties said that some of their officials have complained that they weren’t notified of the transfers into and out of their accounts until after the fact.”

‘Using The Party As A Fundraising Clearinghouse’
But the Clinton campaign’s control of the contributions did not end once the funds reached the DNC, as the complaint filed with the FEC detailed. Rather, public statements by former DNC chairwoman Donna Brazile acknowledged that “[a]s Hillary’s campaign gained momentum, she resolved the party’s debt and put it on a starvation diet. It had become dependent on her campaign for survival, for which she expected to wield control of its operations.”


Gary Gensler, the chief financial officer of the Clinton campaign, which operated as Hillary For America “HFA,” out of Brooklyn, New York, likewise stated that the Democratic Party was “fully under the control of the Clinton campaign . . . . The campaign had the DNC on life support, giving it money every month to meet its basic expenses, while the campaign was using the party as a fund-raising clearinghouse.”

By excercising control over the DNC’s funds, including funds transferred from the HVF through the state parties, the contributions qualified as donations to the Clinton campaign for purposes of federal campaign finance law, and when properly accounted for exceeded the legal contribution limits.

The Supreme Court Made It Clear This Is Illegal
The illegality of this scheme isn’t a matter of debate. The Supreme Court made clear in 2014 in McCutcheon v. FEC that this exact scenario would violate the law. Here’s how the court laid it out: “[A] donor gives a $500,000 check to a joint fundraising committee composed of a candidate, a national party committee, and most of the party’s state party committees. The committees divide up the money so that each one receives the maximum contribution permissible under the base limits, but then each transfers its allocated portion to the same single committee. That committee uses the money for coordinated expenditures on behalf of a particular candidate.”

The Supreme Court then declared: “Lest there be any confusion, a joint fundraising committee is simply a mechanism for individual committees to raise funds collectively, not to circumvent base limits or earmarking rules. Under no circumstances may a contribution to a joint fundraising committee result in an allocation that exceeds the contribution limits applicable to its constituent parts; the committee is in fact required to return any excess funds to the contributor.” And “the earmarking provision prohibits an individual from directing funds ‘through an intermediary or conduit to a particular candidate.”

This “scenario could not succeed,” the Supreme Court explained, “without assuming that nearly 50 separate party committees would engage in a transparent violation of the earmarking rules (and that they would not be caught if they did).” Caught Clinton was. Yet the FEC failed to act on Backer’s complaint, even though federal law authorizes any person to file “a complaint with the FEC alleging a violation of federal campaign finance law.”

FEC Declines To Follow The Law
Upon receipt of Backer’s complaint, the FEC was required to notify those accused of violating federal law of the charges. Then the commissioners were required to determine whether there was “reason to believe” a violation occurred. Following a finding by four FEC commissioners that there was “reason to believe” a violation has occurred, the FEC must investigate the complaint.

Last week Backer turned to federal court, seeking to force the FEC to fulfill its statutory duty.
But in this case, the FEC did nothing, other than pressumably notify the DNC and Clinton of the charges. Accordingly, last week Backer turned to federal court, seeking to force the FEC to fulfill its statutory duty, as provided by federal law.

Specifically, the controlling statute provides that should the FEC fail to act, “during the 120-day period beginning on the date the complaint is filed,” the aggrieved party “may file a petition with the United States District Court for the District of Columbia,” alleging the FEC’s “failure to act is contrary to law, [the court] may direct the Commission to conform with such declaration within 30 days.”

Given the overwhelming evidence of illegal campaign contributions Backer detailed in the complaint he filed with the FEC against Clinton, the DNC, and the state Democratic parties, there is more than sufficient evidence for the FEC to have “reason to believe” they violated federal campaign finance law.

So why didn’t the FEC act? The answer to that question came Thursday, when FEC Vice Chair Ellen L. Weintraub issued a statement in another case, involving another complainant and another provision of federal campaign-finance law, but which nonetheless showed the FEC is dysfunctional.

Senate Democrats’ Delay Could Prove Fatal
As noted above, the FEC can investigate a complaint only upon a finding of “reason to believe” by four commissioners. But the six-member FEC currently only has four commissioners. By statute, the commissioners must come from different political parties, and by practice, the Senate confirms newly nominated commissioners in pairs, one Democrat and one Republican. Democrats, however, have yet to name a replacement, holding up the confirmation process and leaving in place for the foreseeable future a likely deadlock.

This deadlock, though, might prove fatal to Clinton and the DNC because, as Weintraub explained in her statement, Congress provided for just such a contingency: “Fire alarms are sometimes housed in boxes labeled ‘Break glass in case of emergency.’ The Federal Election Campaign Act has such a box; it’s the provision that allows complainants to sue respondents directly when the Federal Election Commission fails to enforce the law itself (52 USC § 30109(a)(8)(C)). In the 44-year history of the FEC, this provision has never been fully utilized. Today, I’m breaking the glass.”

Weintraub then went on to say that she believed the complainant in that case should pursue litigation, “as Congress provided for under the Federal Election Campaign Act,” because by placing the matter in private hands, the goal of enforcing “America’s campaign-finance laws fairly and effectively” can be best achieved. Just yesterday, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington took Weintraub’s hint and filed suit in federal court directly against the nonprofit group American Action Network, alleging violations of federal campaign-finance law.

Using Democrats’ Tactics Against Them
While Weintraub is a Democrat and complained about charges against the right-leaning American Action Network, the same glass-breaking provisions provide Backer the right to pursue his case against the DNC and Clinton directly.

Placing the matter in Backer’s hands, as an advocate for his client the Committee to Defend the President, in a federal court, and with the tools of discovery—including the ability to subpoena bank accounts, DNC communications, and question party officials and bundlers—promises to shine more sunlight on the Clinton and DNC shennanigans than the FEC’s behind-closed-doors consideration and investigation. Also, the Clintons and party officials should not be the only ones concerned: Every big-time donor in on the scheme and acting with the requisite intent faces criminal prosecution, as well.

Yet even with the overwhelming evidence of tsunami-level campaign-finance criminality—more than $84 million—the media instead chases the cloud cast over President Trump because of the $130,000 payment his attorney, Michael Cohen, made to Stormy Daniels, and claims that payment constituted an illegal campaign contribution. One wonders what it will take to break through the mainstream media blackout. Maybe a few pointed unpresidential tweets from our commander-in-chief?
