Watch: Hillary Clinton reportedly fined by Election Commission for lying about Trump

The US Federal Election Commission has reportedly fined Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign and the Democratic National Committee over complaints they violated federal law.

The fine was in relation to improperly describing expenditures to law firm Perkins Coie, who then hired research firm Fusion GPS to do opposition research on then-Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

The Coolidge Reagan Foundation filed a complaint with the FEC three years ago about the Clinton campaign’s conduct.

The FEC responded on Wednesday, claiming it fined the Clintons (USD) $8,000 and the DNC’s treasurer (USD) $105,000.
