Paul Ryan: FEC ‘should have to look into’ whether Clinton-DNC deal broke campaign finance laws


House Speaker Paul Ryan said the Federal Election Commission should investigate revelations of an intricate funding agreement between the Democratic National Committee and the campaign of then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, which many experts claim tipped her primary against Sen. Bernie Sanders in favor of the former secretary of state.

“I don’t know that there’s a legislative remedy on how parties conduct themselves and how they’re supposed to be neutral in primaries,” Ryan told “Fox News Sunday” in an interview taped on Friday.

“Whether they broke campaign finance laws should be something that the FEC, the Federal Election Commission, should have to look into, but we don’t legally regulate how the parties set up their bylaws.

Former interim DNC Chairwoman Donna Brazile outed the Clinton campaign in an excerpt of her forthcoming book, published by Politico, in which she outlined the deal that allowed the campaign to take control of the DNC’s finances and operations in a manner which she said “sure looked unethical.”
