FEC Complaint

PBS reports:
Several watchdog groups filed a complaint Thursday with the Federal Election Commission accusing Donald Trump Jr. of illegally coordinating with Russia during the 2016 campaign, based on the emails he released earlier this week detailing the meeting he set up last year to obtain information on Hillary Clinton.
The complaint, a copy of which was obtained by PBS NewsHour, argues that Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign committee broke campaign finance law by soliciting contributions from a foreign national or foreign government when Trump Jr., former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner agreed to the meeting.
