Bernie Sanders violating federal campaign laws by employing foreign nationals

March 22, 2019

Now that Mueller report is out and it looks like there will be no charges of collusion between anybody in the Trump campaign and a foreign government it might be time to take a look at Bernie Sanders’s 2020 campaign because it is being reported that an FEC violation complaint has been filed against the socialist for hiring a foreign national to work on his campaign.

  Here is more:

The Bernie Sanders presidential campaign is violating federal election law by employing foreign nationals in advisory campaign positions, according to a newly filed complaint to the Federal Election Commission obtained exclusively by the Free Beacon.

The complaint points to the employment of three individuals, including Maria Belén Sisa, an illegal immigrant from Argentina who is in the United States under the protections of DACA and has been named deputy national press secretary for Bernie 2020. Sisa, who collected a salary from the Bernie 2016 campaign and also made financial contributions to it, recently made headlines when she questioned whether American Jews, including her own boss Sanders, were loyal to the United States.

Both the work for the campaign and contributions are “direct and serious violations” of federal election law, the complaint argues.

Foreign nationals are prohibited from directly or indirectly participating in the decision-making process of any person with regard to election-related activities, according to the FEC. Included in this group of foreign nationals are all immigrants not lawfully admitted as permanent residents.

“Senator Sanders and Bernie 2020 is permitting a foreign national, Ms. Sisa, to serve in an advisory position which allows her to directly or indirectly participate in the decision-making process of persons with regard to election-related activities in violation of FEC regulations,” it argues.

    In addition to employing a foreign national to work on his campaign Bernie Sanders has allowed foreign nationals to donate to his campaign and to make decisions for his campaign. All of these are violations of election law.

 Democrats, who for two years have decried the influence of foreign interference as violating the sanctity of our elections, are strangely quiet in this case and with their silences comes their condoning.

  Of course the biggest difference between this story and what Donald Trump did–besides the fact that Donald Trump did not do anything with Russia–is that in this case it is a protected class of foreign nationals the Democrats are allowing to get involved in our elections.
