CLC Cover Letter to DOJ Regarding Potential Criminal Violations of Campaign Finance Law Committed by Donald J. Trump, Donald J. Trump for President, and the Donald J. Trump Foundation


CLC sent its original FEC complaint, its supplemental FEC complaint, and a separate cover letter to the Department of Justice (DOJ). Available evidence suggests not only that Donald J. Trump, the Trump campaign, and the Trump Foundation committed civil violations of campaign finance law, over which the FEC has jurisdiction, but also that those respondents may have committed criminal violations of campaign finance law by knowingly and willfully violating the Federal Election Campaign Act’s soft money restrictions. DOJ has the authority to prosecute knowing and willful violations of federal campaign finance law.
