Watchdog Groups File Criminal Complaint Against Trump Campaign, Bolton Super PAC, Cambridge Analytica

The Hill reports:

Two watchdog groups on Thursday filed a criminal complaint alleging that the Trump campaign and a super PAC controlled by President Trump’s new national security adviser John Bolton worked with the consulting firm Cambridge Analytica to violate a law preventing foreign nations from participating in U.S. elections.

In the complaint, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) and Democracy 21 allege that the John Bolton Super PAC, the Trump campaign and its former chairman Stephen Bannon were aware of Cambridge Analytica’s nefarious activities.

“The law prohibits foreign nationals from participating, directly or indirectly, in elections in the United States,” Noah Bookbinder, CREW’s executive director, said in a statement.
