WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange promised in a recent interview that this current email leak will be so damning that it will have the potential to result in her indictment and arrest.
Too good to be true? Probably. I think there’s at least one thing we’ve learned from the Clintons, and that is that they can get away with murder. (At least in this life.)
Yet another revelation from the DNC emails shows that the DNC were already planning for a Hillary Clinton administration with a spreadsheet of top donors being given federal appointment guarantees.
Trending: Science is Settled
The spreadsheet lists 23 names of corporate executives who also happen to be big time donors to the DNC and liberal political action committees. The majority of those on the list donated to Hillary Clinton. None of them supported Bernie Sanders.
One email chain from the DNC’s financial officials to other officials showed the DNC asking for names to be used for consideration in heading up various “boards and commissions.” The Daily Caller reported on the email chain:
“If you have someone, send to [DNC finance chief of staff Scott] Comer – full name, city, state, email and phone number. Send as many as you want, just don’t know how many people will get to.”
The email confused at least one official involved in the exchange.
“Boards and commissions? Sorry, I’m lost,” wrote Jordan Vaughn, the national finance director for the DNC’s African American Leadership Council.
Comer explained: “Any folks who you’d like to be considered to be on the board of (for example) USPS, NEA, NEH. Basically anyone who has a niche interest and might like to serve on the board of one of these orgs.”
“I should say, though, that the likelihood of landing a spot on ones as prestigious as NEA/USPS is unlikely,” Comer added, referring to the National Endowment for the Arts and the U.S. Postal Service.
“It’s much more likely they’ll get something like ‘President’s Commission on the Celebration of Women in American History.’ (no shade to women) But when you submit your names, we don’t need specific designations,” he continued.
Boehm, who once served as chairman for the political action committee Citizens for Reagan, says that the fact that Democrats are lining up appointments to federal committees months before the general election is strong evidence of a quid pro quo.
“Having participated in the boards and commissions work for President-elect Reagan, I know there’s no need to involve partisans months before the election,” he told TheDC. “These appointments are made on a staggered basis so there’s no rush.”
“As with so much associated with the Clinton operations, there is an appearance that these appointments have been pressed into service as a device to raise funds.”
Basically, the more money you raise for the DNC, the DNC-favored candidate, and other liberal political action committees, the more likely you are to win a seat at the table. So, the incentive is, if you want to be a part of the Hillary Administration, raise more money. And they start planning all these appointments months before the general election. It’s almost as if they’re assuming she’s going to win. I wonder if they know something that we don’t?
Of course, I think it would be silly not to acknowledge that this is how the GOP operates as well. In politics, it’s all about money and power. The GOP is no better than the DNC. Everything the DNC did to Bernie Sanders, the GOP tried to do to Donald Trump. But he prevailed in spite of their best efforts.
