We deserve transparency and accountability when it comes to money spent to influence our elections. The Department of Justice (DOJ) and Federal Election Commission (FEC) must investigate the payment Trump’s team made to Stormy Daniels and determine whether or not the president and his campaign committee broke federal election laws.

Just yesterday, we filed complaints with the DOJ and FEC alleging that the $130,000 in hush money paid to Stephanie Clifford, a.k.a. Stormy Daniels, was an unreported expenditure by Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and potentially an illegal contribution to the campaign. 

The DOJ and FEC must investigate Trump's payment to Clifford, which was paid to influence the election by making sure Trump's presidential campaign wasn't affected by the news of his extramarital affair.

We are calling on the DOJ and FEC to investigate this payment and hold Trump and his associates accountable if they broke federal election laws.

We deserve to have transparency about how and where money was spent during Trump's presidential campaign, and we need to hold our elected officials accountable to the law.

Trump's unreported payment to Stormy Daniels is a flagrant violation of our federal election laws, and allowing Trump to get away with this would only encourage future candidates to do the same.

That's why it's so critical that the DOJ and FEC to investigate this payment and determine its legality.

Not only is this hush money breaking federal laws because it was undisclosed but if the payment was made by the Trump Organization or some other corporation or individual, it would be an illegal contribution to Trump, since it violates the corporate contribution ban or the $2,700 limit on contributions from individuals to federal candidates.

We need to know the truth about whether or not the Trump campaign engaged in illegal activity and broke federal election laws.

Tell the DOJ and FEC to investigate Trump's payment to Stephanie Clifford during the 2016 presidential election, and to hold him accountable for breaking federal election laws.
