FEC probing Nunes for possible campaign violations
By Max Greenwood - 03/21/18 05:00 PM EDT

The Federal Election Commission (FEC) is investigating possible campaign finance violations by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.).

In a letter sent to Toni Nunes, the congressman's campaign treasurer and mother, the FEC requested information about contributions from three donors that appear to violate campaign finance rules.

One donor, Harris Lee Cohen, appears to have given Nunes's campaign a total of $3,000, through two payments of $1,500. Individuals are prohibited from giving more than $2,700 to a federal candidate per election cycle.

Another individual, Jeffrey J. Kimbell, the president of a D.C.-based lobbying group that "provides legislative, regulatory and policy solutions to clients in the life sciences community," according to its website, gave a total of $3,000 to Nunes's campaign.

According to the FEC, Kimbell gave Nunes a $1,000 donation, a $1,700 donation and a $300 donation.

The FEC letter also calls attention to a $10,000 contribution from Stone Land Company, a California "diversified family farming operation."

That donation appears to run afoul of a rule prohibiting "the receipt of contributions from corporations and labor organizations unless made from separate segregated funds established by the corporations and labor organizations," the letter reads.

The FEC letter to Nunes was first reported by the Daily Beast.

Such letters to political campaigns are not uncommon.

Nunes's campaign has until April 24 to respond to the FEC's request.

Wow. This is serious!

Two $300 overages...

One donation made from an incorrect bank account...

Thank goodness Max Greenwood was there to write up this criminal enterprise. We need those investigative reporters to focus on the big stuff. Wink

P.S. What's "overages"? Did you mean "average"? Or does "overage" have a meaning unknown to me?

OK, Let's go through this slowly......

The maximum donation allowed is $2,700.

Donations total $3,000.

That means they donated beyond the limit..... How much? confused

That amount is an overage..... (Did you get the answer yet?)

Next, a donation was made from a general corporate account. It was supposed to be made from a special account where funds were set aside specifically for contributions. Wrong account used. Hooowweeee! A violation!

Now I know why Max wrote the article.. He wrote it for the headline, not the facts. Those of us who skim headlines only would be snookered into thinking something happened, when nothing did... satisfied content

I think his point is that the amount is so insignificant that it's not worth mentioning, and that the reporter was wasting his and our time.

But breaking the law is breaking the law, be it by $1, $300 or several million dollars...

Thanks for the explanation for "overages", UnMask. Up to now, I thought that "overage" only meant "too old". But then I'm probably the least knowledgeable of the members active in this Politix forum... Embarassed

Devin Nunes Admits Trump Committed A Crime In Secretly Recorded Tapes
The Ring of Fire
Published on Aug 9, 2018
Devin Nunes has been one of the President’s most ardent defenders, and has even bent the rules to keep Trump one step ahead of the investigations. But now Nunes faces a bleak future after tapes of him admitting that publishing stolen emails was a criminal activity, and after laying out his political plan to impeach Rod Rosenstein. Things are bad for Trump, and Nunes just made them so much worse. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.
