An analysis by the New York Post published Saturday revealed liberal comedian Rosie O’Donnell has regularly broken campaign finance laws by over-donating to Democratic candidates.

According to the Post’s analysis, O’Donnell has regularly broken a law that limits an individual’s donations to just $2,700 per candidate per election. The limit applies separately to primaries, generals and runoffs. It is not a cumulative limit.

The donations included:

  • $4,700 to Democrat Doug Jones for the Alabama special election. Jones, now a U.S. senator, ran against Roy Moore.
  • $3,600 to Democrat Conor Lamb’s special election in Pennsylvania in March against Rick Saccone.
  • $2,950 to Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) for his primary this year.
  • $4,200 to Lauren Underwood, a Democratic congressional candidate, for her primary.
  • $3,450 to Omar Vaid, a Democratic congressional candidate from Staten Island and Brooklyn, for his primary.

According to the Post, O’Donnell together gave $5,400 beyond what is allowed by law.

Lamb’s campaign said it would notify O’Donnell of her “error” and either refund her the money or allow her to roll it over to Lamb’s November election.

Meanwhile, Vaid’s campaign told the Post it “inadvertently designated” some of O’Donnell’s money to the “wrong election” and would amend their campaign finance filings.

While both campaigns and donors are responsible for following all campaign finance laws, experts told the Post that O’Donnell likely won’t go to jail for her over-donations.

“Donors are rarely fined for excess contributions and then only if they are hiding the donations from the recipients. Campaigns generally are not penalized for isolated contributions over a limit. However, multiple excessive donations may lead to an investigation. Fines could result in such cases,” prominent campaign finance lawyer Jan Witold told the Post.

In an email to the Post, O’Donnell said the over-donations were “nothing nefarious” and claimed, “I was not choosing to over donate.”

“If 2700 is the cut off — [candidates] should refund the money. I don’t look to see who I can donate most to,” she explained. “I just donate assuming they do not accept what is over the limit.”

O’Donnell said she donates often via ActBlue, an online liberal fundraising platform.

“My anxiety is quelled by donating to those opposing trump [and] his agenda — especially at night — when most of these were placed,” she said.

Indeed, as the Post reported, O’Donnell donated more than $90,000 to 50 candidates and committees during the 2017-2018 election cycle.

Pretty simple. This lying liberal democrat pig deliberately lied and illegally donated numerous times, in excessive amounts, to other America hating, lying liberal democrat traitors. She should be indicted, prosecuted, and jailed for each and every crime she deliberately committed, AND, the sentences should run CONSECUTIVELY Hey Rosie...President Donald Trump....MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

wow lots of ridiculously immature statements on here, the point is what? are you trying to be equal to her ridiculously immature behavior? you sling insults at a woman who could give a rats ass who you are, and less about what you say. A lot of us don't like her, but we don't stoop down to her level- take the high road people.

Rosie didn't know, the candidates all made errors and ActBlue has not commented. Is there anyone responsible for their actions on that side of the aisle? When will the law start applying to everyone? Didn't our forefathers fight a war over this?

Well, that's OK then, because THE LAWS / RULES / REGULATIONS MEANT NOTHING TO THEM - Only to be applied to GOP supporters / candidates!

So here's the question, IS anything going to happen to her? My bet is, they let her skate on it...but if this were some conservative, they'd throw the book at them. Hmmmm is the main stream Liberal media even covering this story at all? or are they just covering it up?

Why is this disgusting woman still able to be out in public running her big fat mouth everyday when she should be in prison for breaking the law? Why is this pig exempt from the laws that everyone else has to follow? If I broke this law I would be in jail so would anyone else!! Lock the pig up!!!

She must go to prison as did Dinesh for overdonating. The law is the law, not only for conservatives, but DemoNAZIS, too, even though they all think they're above it.

Dinesh DeSouza went jail for this under the Obama administration - of course, he’s a Republican and he made a movie Obama didn’t like. Double standards all around!

oh come on does she really expect us to believe that she didn't mean to over donate? I think she knew well what the hell she was doing. She should go to jail. She's just making excuses because she got caught.

Why is Rosie not in jail? She has openly threatened the President of the United States and has broken several laws and she knows it. She just knows that no one has a backbone and will do nothing to her, she too thinks she is above the law.

she should be put into the same cell as Hilary and I hope they enjoy each others company. Two ugly lying, cheating bitches that should not be allowed to call themselves Americans. Let them go to another country and try getting away with the shit they do here. They would most certainly disappear off the face of the earth, which would be good for everyone.

Now is the time that IRS thoroughly audits her income tax return and therein she could get some jail time maybe in a Canadian or Mexican jail. Our inmates don't deserve having to serve with this oink.

Rosie is a POS and should have the courts tell her if she does this AGAIN they will fine HER $20,000 for every time she OVER donates. We know even the courts don't like to give money back.
Danny May 6, 2018

Why do we have laws if they don’t not have to be followed? At what point do you get in trouble. They should just say hey ppl try not to give to much we would like it if you would not give more than 2700 but if you do oh well.
PATRICIA WILLEMS May 6, 2018

Ask Dinesh D'Souza about donating too much to a candidate. He spent time in detention in San Diego for the exact same thing! Of course, he's a conservative and Obama hated him, so went after him full boar!

Rosie O'Donell is a wasted use of space on our planet especially in America. She is a has been and has been that way for years. I hope this gets her into some type of trouble hopefully with a prison sentence attached where she has belonged for years.

A fool and her money are soon parted. If she gets away with it then all the rest will just follow suit. George Soros contributes billions through his various organizations. By the way when is HE going to be investigated? How did he answer the questions in the Application for U.S. Citizenship re: Nazi affiliation? If honestly then he would NEVER have been allowed in the country and would have been turned over to the Tribunals.

Are you surprised about Rosie O'Donnell. Hollywood are use to doing what they want if it is against the law or not. They make big money and think everyone should kiss their behinds. They don't care what is right or wrong. And the Dems. always cheat

Nikki Haley Breaks with Trump: ‘We Shouldn’t Have Followed Him, and We Shouldn’t Have Listened to Him’

Published

on

Nikki Haley, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, believes that former President Donald Trump “let us down.”

Haley’s remarks come as the former president’s legal team prepares to present its defense of Trump during his second impeachment trial in the Senate.

In a Politico interview published Friday, Haley, former South Carolina governor, said that “we shouldn’t have followed” Trump.

“We need to acknowledge he let us down,” she said in an extensive profile. “He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t let that ever happen again.”

She also told the outlet that she has not spoken to Trump since the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol, and takes issue with his remarks condemning former Vice President Mike Pence’s refusal to reject the Electoral College vote.

“When I tell you I’m angry, it’s an understatement,” she expressed. “I am so disappointed in the fact that [despite] the loyalty and friendship he had with Mike Pence, that he would do that to him. Like, I’m disgusted by it.”

The former ambassador, who many people are speculating may run for the White House in 2024, also added that Trump will never accept the results of the 2020 presidential election.

“There’s nothing that you’re ever going to do that’s going to make him feel like he legitimately lost the election,” she explained. “He’s got a big bully pulpit. He should be responsible with it.”

Haley also warned that many people still love the former president and will not stop supporting him just because he is out of office.

“I know how much people love Donald Trump,” she admitted. “I know it. I feel it. Whether it’s an RNC room or social media or talking to donors, I can tell you that the love they have for him is still very strong. That’s not going to just fall to the wayside. Nor do I think the Republican Party is going to go back to the way it was before Donald Trump. I don’t think it should.”

Haley added that people, instead, should “take the good that he built, leave the bad that he did, and get back to a place where we can be a good, valuable, effective party.”

“[I]t’s bigger than the party,” she insisted. “I hope our country can come together and figure out how we pull this back.”

Referring to Haley’s possible 2024 ambitions, Politico’s Tim Alberta wrote, “Since last fall, I’ve spent nearly six hours talking with Haley on-the-record. I’ve also spoken with nearly 70 people who know her: friends, associates, donors, staffers, former colleagues. From those conversations, two things are clear. First, Nikki Haley is going to run for president in 2024. Second, she doesn’t know which Nikki Haley will be on the ballot.”

Haley also said that she didn’t believe Trump had a chance of winning in a 2024 election scenario.

“I don’t think he can,” she admitted. “He’s fallen so far.”

“I think his business is suffering at this point,” she added. “I think he’s lost any sort of political viability he was going to have. I think he’s lost his social media, which meant the world to him. I mean, I think he’s lost the things that really could have kept him moving.”

This portion of today’s events on Capitol Hill was excellent. The Democrats claim that because President Trump used the word ‘fight’ in his speech on January 6th in Washington D.C. However, what every Democrat in that room forgot was that they too had used the word previously in political speech.

The montage went on for 13 minutes. (The video montage starts at 7:10 timeframe.)

WATCH: Trump Attorneys Destroy House Managers on Lying to American Public and Using Manipulated Tweet as Evidence

Published

on

President Trump’s defense team took the floor of the US Senate on Friday in defense of President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial.

Trump Attorney David Schoen absolutely destroyed the House Managers when he took to the floor of the US Senate.

At one point Schoen played video of the Democrat lawmakers lying about a Trump tweet.

House Impeachment Manager Eric Swalwell gave a riveting performance on Wednesday reading off Trump’s tweets with emotional appeal.

During this theatrical performance, Swalwell read off a Trump retweet by Jennifer Lynn Lawrence.

But there was one problem with the tweet. It was photoshopped.

Jennifer Lynn Lawrence has never been verified by Twitter. Democrats faked that to make it look more important.

On Friday Trump Attorney David Schoen destroyed Democrats for lying about this to the American public.

White House Suspends Deputy Press Secretary For Allegedly Sexually Harassing, Threatening Reporter

Published

on

The White House announced on Friday that it was suspending Deputy Press Secretary TJ Ducklo after a report surfaced alleging that he sexually harassed and threatened a female reporter who was getting ready to publish a report revealing that he was dating a reporter who had previously been tasked with covering Democrat Joe Biden.

“The confrontation began on Inauguration Day, January 20, after [Politico reporter Tara] Palmeri, a coauthor of Politico’s Playbook, contacted [Axios political reporter Alexi] McCammond for comment while one of her male colleagues left a message for Ducklo,” Vanity Fair reported. “Ducklo subsequently called a Playbook editor to object to the story, but was told to call the Playbook reporters with his concerns. But instead of calling the male reporter who initially contacted him, Ducklo tried to intimidate Palmeri by phone in an effort to kill the story. ‘I will destroy you,’ Ducklo told her, according to the sources, adding that he would ruin her reputation if she published it.”

“During the off-the-record call, Ducklo made derogatory and misogynistic comments, accusing Palmeri of only reporting on his relationship—which, due to the ethics questions that factor into the relationship between a journalist and White House official, falls under the purview of her reporting beat—because she was ‘jealous’ that an unidentified man in the past had ‘wanted to f***’ McCammond ‘and not you,’” the report added. “Ducklo also accused Palmeri of being ‘jealous’ of his relationship with McCammond.”

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said following the report that Ducklo has been suspended for a week over the incident.

“TJ Ducklo has apologized to the reporter, with whom he had a heated conversation about his personal life,” Psaki wrote on Twitter. “He is the first to acknowledge this is not the standard of behavior set out by the President.”

“In addition to his initial apology, he has sent the reporter a personal note expressing his profound regret,” she continued. “With the approval of the White House Chief of Staff, he has been placed on a one-week suspension without pay. In addition, when he returns, he will no longer be assigned to work with any reporters at Politico.”

Reporters called out the administration over the incident, highlighting how the Trump administration did not treat reporters that way as well as issues with the timeline of events with regard to the White House taking action to address the incident.

“The Vanity Fair piece indicates that Politico editors reached to the WH after the incident first occurred and the WH acknowledged it was inappropriate,” Spectator editor Amber Athey wrote on Twitter. “But they clearly didn’t have any interest in disciplining Ducklo until his behavior was made public.”

New York Magazine reporter Olivia Nuzzi wrote on Twitter: “I covered Donald Trump for 6 years. It is saying something that this behavior — from a Biden official — shocks me.”

Grabien founder Tom Elliott highlighted the following remarks that Biden made a few weeks ago: “If you’re ever working with me and I hear you treat another colleague with disrespect, talk down to someone, I promise you I will fire you on the spot, on the spot. No if, ands, or buts. Everybody — everybody is entitled to be treated with decency & dignity.”

CNN anchor Jake Tapper responded to the quote, writing: “Standards that are not upheld are not standards. They’re lies.”
