Joe Biden, Alvin Bragg hit with FEC complaint

America First Legal (AFL) wasted no time in filing a Federal Election Commission (FEC) complaint on Wednesday, according to a report by Newsweek.

Their target? None other than President Joe Biden's reelection campaign and Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who seems to be riding high after winning a criminal trial against former President Donald Trump.

Trump, the self-proclaimed GOP 2024 presidential nominee, was found guilty last month on a whopping 34 counts of falsifying business records.

According to the indictments that led to his guilty verdict, he was trying to hide some hush money that was paid to adult film actress Stormy Daniels, just in time for the 2016 presidential election.

The Case Against Trump

Daniels claims she had a supposed sexual encounter with Trump in 2006, which he vehemently denies.

The former president is sticking to his story, insisting that the whole case against him is part of a well-orchestrated political conspiracy. His legal team intends to appeal the verdict.

Trump and his team have consistently maintained that the case was nothing more than a feeble attempt by the Democrats to meddle with the former president's chances of winning a second term.

AFL, an organization led by Stephen Miller, who had his time freed up when he left his position as an advisor for the former president, filed the complaint on Wednesday.

The group is going after Bragg and Biden's campaign, Biden for President, claiming that they've committed some oh-so-serious violations of the Federal Election Campaign Act [FECA].

The FEC Filing

The AFL claimed that Bragg's prosecution of Trump was "coordinated" with Biden, which means that it was "in cooperation, consultation, or concert with, or at the request or suggestion of" Biden, according to the filing.

The group claims that these actions constitute Bragg making an "excessive contribution in the form of a coordinated pursuing the politically motivated prosecution against Trump."

AFL explained in the filing that, FECA and FEC "regulations prohibit candidates and authorized committees from knowingly accepting contributions from individuals in excess of a specified amount — which, during the 2024 election cycle, is $3,300 per election."

The group argues Biden's campaign has violated these regulations by "knowingly accept[ing] an excessive contribution in the form of a coordinated expenditure."
