This isn't the special counsel. Has zero to do with Robert Mueller.
So after millions of dollars spent by the Special Council and over a year of looking for collusion the FEC finds the first of the true collusion. Sad and pathetic Special Council.

Who cares? If it's true it's still only a squirt of piss in a massive ocean...
Accept that squirt for now. The Communist Party will have to work harder at undermining elections.

WASHINGTON (WCAX) Sen. Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign will pay a $14,500 fine over an alleged wrongful in-kind campaign contribution during his 2016 run for president.
The agreement with the Federal Elections Commission stems from a group of Australian volunteers who helped the campaign and were paid a total of $24,422 in flights and other expenses by the Australian Labor Party.
Sanders campaign officials have said they did not believe at the time that the money the volunteers received would disqualify them from volunteering. But the FEC classified the transaction as a prohibited in-kind foreign national contribution, a violation of federal rules.
As part of the agreement, the Sanders campaign did not admit fault. "It would have been far more expensive to fight it than to just deal," Sanders campaign aide Jeff Weaver told VTDigger.ld have been far more expensive to fight it than to just deal," Sanders campaign aide Jeff Weaver told VTDigger.
So Bernie was fined because he accepted volunteer work from people whose flights and other accommodations were paid for by the AU political party.
My god, Bernie is now more corrupt than Trump!
