NEEDS MORE EXPOSURE! – George Clooney fundraiser dinner for hillary cost exactly $353,400. The EXACT amount of the max contribution needed to launder cash to the DNC illegally!
From this article in 2016:
It will cost more than four times the average income in San Francisco to have dinner next to Hillary Clinton and the Clooneys there next month. For two seats at the head table with Clinton, George Clooney and his wife, attorney Amal Clooney, at an April 15 fundraiser, a couple must contribute or raise a whopping $353,400 — a huge ticket price for a hard-dollar fundraiser.
And according to the insider info from Donna today here:
Individuals who had maxed out their $2,700 contribution limit to the campaign could write an additional check for $353,400 to the Hillary Victory Fund—that figure represented $10,000 to each of the 32 states’ parties who were part of the Victory Fund agreement—$320,000—and $33,400 to the DNC. The money would be deposited in the states first, and transferred to the DNC shortly after that. Money in the battleground states usually stayed in that state, but all the other states funneled that money directly to the DNC, which quickly transferred the money to Brooklyn.
No WONDER he’s been immovable in his support for her. He’s on the hook for a lot of illegal funds going to her.
Can anyone with legal expertise chime in with exactly what laws were broken here?

Last Friday, Hillary Clinton hosted an expensive fundraiser in California. How expensive? A seat at the main table with Clinton, actor George Clooney and human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin Clooney cost $353,400 per couple. While Clinton and Clooney argue that the money will go to down-ballot Democratic candidates for the House and Senate, others are skeptical. On Monday, Jeff Weaver, a top aide for Sen. Bernie Sanders, alleged that these funds are going to be used to help Clinton, not other Democrats.
Speaking to NBC’s Meet the Press, the actor was asked by host Chuck Todd whether the sums involved in his events, such as $353,400 a couple to be a “co-chair”, were, as critics and protesters have said, obscene. “Yes,” he said. “I think it’s an obscene amount of money. I think – you know that we had some protesters last night when we pulled up in San Francisco and they’re right to protest, they’re absolutely right, it is an obscene amount of money.[views]
