FEC Shoots Down Democrat’s Plan to Target Conservative Media

The Federal Election Commission (FEC) has declined a proposal by Democrat Commissioner Ellen Weintraub to investigate alleged foreign influence in the 2016 election that would target conservative media including the Drudge Report and Breitbart News, stating it “cannot support proposals that would burden the free speech rights of American citizens based on incomplete information about foreign activities in the 2016 election.”
