The Washington Beacon recently reported that the foreign billionaire and seven-figure donor to the Clinton Foundation was caught “funding a reportedly illegal voting scheme that links straight to the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.”

A computer hacker, known by the moniker Guccifer 2.0, leaked DNC emails allegedly outlining its 2016 general election “strategies.” In it, Clinton donor and  Swiss billionaire Hansjorg Wyss, allegedly contributed $100 million to sway the 2016 election results in Clinton’s favor.

The Beacon reported that Wyss’s group, The Wyss Foundation, was allegedly targeting pro-Clinton demographics “for voter registration, outreach, organizing, and legal and policy advocacy on voting laws,” which is illegal.

The Wyss Foundation is registered as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, which is restricted by U.S. law from financing direct political projects. It’s $100 million contribution to direct voter outcomes is just one violation of this law.

The document uncovered, called the, “Wyss Foundation Democracy Strategy Discussion Memo,”evidencing clear violations of this law and the DNC’s full knowledge and participation in breaking the law.

The Beacon writes,

“The document details the scope of Democratic efforts to boost grassroots organizing, and sheds light on how some of the left’s deepest pockets are facilitating those efforts through nonprofit vehicles generally restricted to charitable activity.”

Also, as a foreign national, Wyss is legally barred from donating to any U.S. federal or state political party or candidate. He’s allegedly violated this law roughly 30 times over a nine-year period, according to The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Wyss previously gave between 1 and 5 million dollars to the Clinton Foundation. And, “Wyss’ now-defunct HJW Foundation previously employed Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, who received $87,083 from the group in 2013 for consulting services,” according to the Beacon.
