Media ‘Forgets’ Obama Was Fined $375k for Campaign Finance Violations
'Impeachable' evidence against Trump is non existent compared to Obama's
As the deep state scrambles to grab non-existent 'impeachable' evidence from court filings, claiming President Donald Trump violated 'campaign finance laws,' one must note the media's 'amnesia' over Barack Obama's campaign finance violations back in 2013.
Yesterday, Democratic Rep. Jerry Nadler said that evidence of President Donald Trump directing his lawyer to 'break campaign finance laws' is 'impeachable.'
What Nadler has forgotten is that former President Obama did the same, but on a much larger scale.
The Federal Election Commission fined Obama's 2008 campaign a massive $375,000 for campaign reporting violations — one of the highest fees ever levied upon a presidential campaign
But back then, there wasn't a sniff of possible impeachment on Obama; it was largely ignored by the media.
To put things into perspective of how biased and 'forgetful' the left-leaning media are, the former President said this:
“We didn’t have a scandal that embarrassed us,” Obama said during an appearance at MIT earlier this year.
"There were certainly blunders," he admitted, “but there wasn’t anything venal in eight years.”

It seems Obama, just like the biased left media, is banking on people 'being stupid' and 'forgetful' - which isn't the case anymore with the wonders of the internet at our fingertips.
Remember, Obama committed one of the largest fines in campaign finance violation history.
“The major sticking point for the FEC appeared to be a series of missing 48-hour notices for nearly 1,300 contributions totaling more than $1.8 million — an issue that lawyers familiar with the commission’s work say the FEC takes seriously,” Politico reported.
“The notices must be filed on contributions of $1,000 or more that are received within the 20-day window of Election Day."
“More than half of those contributions were transferred from the Obama Victory Fund, a joint committee between the campaign and the Democratic National Committee.”
So why do we bring this up?
Well, since Donald Trump is being put through the mill for his ’s non-disclosure agreement with Stormy Daniels, done via his then lawyer Michael Cohen, it may have violated campaign finance laws.
We reported Democrat Rep. Jerry Nadler, the incoming chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said that the above would be "impeachable offenses."
"Whether they are important enough to justify an impeachment is a different question. But, certainly, they would be impeachable offenses, because, even though they were committed before the president became president, they were committed in the service of fraudulently obtaining the office.”
We even Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubi was claiming that one seven-letter word ― “synergy” ― may prove crucial in proving the allegations that President Donald Trump colluded with Russia.
If you connect the dots and read between the lines, the deep state has lost control, and it seems the media is the only asset they have left in convincing the public they will impeach Trump, which is a pipe dream.
