WikiLeaks: DNC Leak Exposes Possible Pay-to-Play and Insider Trading Schemes

by Edmund Kozak , via The News Doctors:

Yet another new wave of hacked DNC emails have come crashing down on the Clinton campaign, courtesy of WikiLeaks and the hacker Gucifer 2.0.

The new batch of emails appear to contain damaging revelations, including documents that suggest Democrats openly engaged in pay-to-play bargains, awarding important diplomatic positions to high rolling donors.

As if a thriving pay-to-pay scheme weren’t bad enough, the latest DNC leaks also include a file which suggests possible insider trading and securities fraud.

Included in the leaks is a spreadsheet which appears to list a number of donors, the amounts of money they raised, and the ambassadorships and other positions with which they were awarded for their efforts.

These include Matthew Barzun, current ambassador to the UK, who raised over $3.5 million for the DNC; Frank Sanchez, former Under Secretary of Commerce, who paid over $3.4 million for his swanky position; and Eileen Chamberlain Donahoe, who paid more than $2 million for an ambassadorship to the UN.

Another DNC email leaked previously showed one staffer requesting “a very brief call to go over our process for handling donations from donors who have given us pay to play letters.” We now know that process ends with a cushy job in blatant violation of the Pendleton Civil Service Reform Act.

As if a thriving pay-to-pay scheme weren’t bad enough, the latest DNC leaks also include a file which suggests possible insider trading and securities fraud, according to independent journalist Matt Forney. A file called “CNBC” contains three files with information on various stocks and equities.

One of the spreadsheets lists earning predictions, which according to a source quoted by Forney are unusually accurate. “There is no way it’s just analysts’ opinions for that earnings spreadsheet, every friend he has on the Street would kill to be as accurate as they [the DNC] almost always were. This is insider trading for sure,” the source is quoted as saying.

The information in the new batch of leaks goes from damaging to simply embarrassing. In one email, current DNC communications director Luis Miranda complains about the bad optics which occur when George Soros and the Democrats’ union allies don’t come through with providing their normal rent-a-protest crowds.

“Going forward, when our allies screw up and don’t deliver bodies in time, we either send all our interns out there or we stay away from it … we don’t want to own a bad picture,” it reads.

After the latest round of DNC leaks, it will be hard for the Democratic Party to own anything but.

    Insatiable: the Democrats Must Attack Democracy to Serve Corporate Power

    What is the Corporate Power?

    Most critiques of the Clinton Foundation and Clinton machine focus on the idea of corruption and scandal. True enough, but the Clintons’ corporate worldview goes far beyond greed, corruption and “pay to play.”

    The deeper conflict is between a new form of corporate governance — in full command of all three branches of national government — and the remnants of the older legal and political structure. Violations of the now outmoded functions of government — individual rights, free elections, checks and balances, rule of law and the national interest itself — are called out as corruption but are in fact the “new normal.”

    The managers of the new system must be above the law and the Constitution to do their job. These corruptions are but evidence of a Corporate Power that must burst the remaining shell of democracy to complete its ascendancy.

    The Corporate Power fuses the corporation with the state. This new relationship — a century in the making — was formally recognized by “Citizens United” and is currently managed by the global political corporation known as the Clinton Foundation.

    The boundaries between what was once “private,” such as wealth created by economic activity, and what was once “public,” such as governments, are no longer meaningful. Corporations were born political actors that must commandeer government to claim and control the wealth created by nature and produced by all the people.

    The seamless interactions between the “public” State Department and the “private” Clinton Foundation exemplifies corporate rule and is the shape of things to come; unless we revolt.

    And revolt we must because profit and power are also governed by the same principles. Just as earlier forms of free-market capitalism, with its more limited profit motive, have been replaced by the corporate order and the drive for the maximum possible profit; the maximum possible power now moves the Corporate Power beyond the limits of representational democracy. There is no role for democracy in the corporate state, except as an obstacle to it supremacy.

    And if you believe that democracy remains a vital part of government in the US, I challenge you to provide evidence for where it exist and how it functions.

    “And if you believe that democracy remains a vital part of government in the US, I challenge you to provide evidence for where it exist and how it functions.”

    Democracy = mob rule. We don’t need or want it. What we HAD, was a constitutional republic – the only one on the planet, and because of it, America grew to become truly exceptional. But those days are long gone, and our REPUBLIC has been silently and with tremendous stealth – stolen.

    What remains in its place is some form of oligopoly/fascist/communist/dictatorship. It certainly is not a democracy and even further from a republic.

    But revolt we must, I agree – lest we remain slaves – all of us.

    tomche:
    Let’s do a quick tally: In 8 years the People have totally lost, due to political take-overs by the Leftist Democrat Party:
    –the Department of Justice….
    –the FBI….
    –the Department of State….
    –any expectation of “truth” from those We hire to run Our government [capital ‘O’, small ‘g’]
    –our entire medical community….
    –the entire Executive Branch….
    –the media….
    –the IRS….
    –freedom of speech in our universities….
    –“free exercise” of religion….
    –and the ability to package lunches for our children.

    BUT….sexually deviant men can now use women’s and girl’s rest rooms.

  • Dean Larson

    Never lose sight: the “removal” of probably fewer than 2,000 from the Executive and Legislative Branches…’K’Street…Wall Street…a slew of banksters…and some Leftists in the media…and We will have our “System Restore”.

    Also: the Left has totally alienated EVERYONE with a firearm: military…law enforcement…Secret Service…hunters…gun owners.
