Good morning, I’m still reporting on Obama.
The latest Wikileaks revelations show documents from the DNC – Democrat National Committee – that offer more evidence of overt corruption. And we are not talking about just during Hillary Clinton’s reign as Secretary of State; we are talking about only months ago.
One email dated May 18, 2016, came from Jacquelyn Lopez, an attorney with the mega-Seattle law firm Perkins Coie, asked DNC staff, including Brad Marshall, the DNC’s Chief Financial Officer, if they could set up a phone call:
“… to go over our process for handling donations from donors who have given us pay-to-play letters.”
There you have it. They don’t even try to hide it anymore. The latest release came from the notorious hacker “Guccifer”, who after addressing a cybersecurity conference in London – no, he is neither dead, nor still in jail in the U.S. – he released a list of 100,000 of the DNC’s largest donors, contact info and donation amounts.
These were apparently used in a sort of bidding war to sell the most-wanted key government jobs and ambassador posts. Here is a listing of some of the top donors and the jobs they consequently received:
For example, big donor #37 was Bruce Oreck. He donated $1.136 million and served as U.S. ambassador to Finland from 2009 to 2015.
Oreck was the General Counsel and Executive Vice President for his privately-held family business, the Oreck vacuum cleaner firm until the company was sold in 2003. Thereafter, Oreck founded the Zero Carbon Initiative.
However, Jane Hartley got a deal; she only paid the DNC
$605,000 to be nominated by President Obama on June 6, 2014 to serve as ambassador to both France and Monaco.
This release was what WikiLeaks head, Julian Assange referred to as a “teaser” in Still Report #1157 – which featured Assange’s Appearance on Megyn Kelly’s Show on Aug. 30.
The implication is that there is much, much more coming.
How did the DNC react? Their usual ploy – divert and confuse. In this case, it’s blame the Russians and Trump.
In a statement released on Monday by DNC Interim Chair Donna Brazile:
“The DNC is the victim of a crime – an illegal cyberattack by Russian state-sponsored agents who seek to harm the Democratic Party … in an effort to influence the presidential election.”
However there has been absolutely no evidence of Russian involvement. According to Gregory R. Copley, editor of Defense & Foreign Affairs magazine:
“[The Democrats are] blaming the messenger to revert the attention from the message.”
Copley added that neither Obama or Clinton is interested in unifying the nation. They are only:
“… interested in winning and engaging in what modern democracy seems to have become – the tyranny of the marginal majority over the marginal minority.”
“President Obama has lost literally all prestige in an international community … with the loss of prestige he has become desperate.”
I’m still reporting from Washington. Good day.
