The Democratic National Committee has been embarrassed by the release of emails that were captured from their email server. The release shows that the fix was in from the beginning to select Hillary Clinton as the Democrat presidential candidate regardless of voter preferences, a fact that has Bernie Sanders supporters furious. It shows that Democrat leadership is bigoted and biased against the religion and race of certain individuals, in spite of perpetually claiming to the be party of minorities and the forgotten.
And it also shows that the Democrats have the United States up for sale to the highest bidder.
Hillary Clinton will once again claim no knowledge of this scheme, which makes one wonder what she actually does know and how she can be president when she is so ignorant of everything going on around her.
Democratic National Committee documents recently released by WikiLeaks include spreadsheets and emails that appear to show party officials planning which donors and prominent fundraisers to provide with appointments to federal boards and commissions.
The documents, which were circulated among top DNC officials in April, could raise legal questions for the party, says Ken Boehm, the chairman of the National Legal and Policy Center, a government watchdog group.
“The disclosed DNC emails sure look like the potential Clinton Administration has intertwined the appointments to federal government boards and commissions with the political and fund raising operations of the Democratic Party,” Boehm told The Daily Caller.
“That is unethical, if not illegal.”
The spreadsheet — which was accompanied by emails sent between officials with the DNC’s finance team — contains 23 names of little-known corporate executives and professional fundraisers who have donated to the committee and various Democratic political action committees.
Most of the donors listed on the spreadsheet have given to Clinton’s campaign. None gave to Sanders.
Boehn, 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.”
The desire for wealth by Bill and Hillary Clinton seems to be exceeded only by their lust for power. Of course the DNC and Hillary will claim this trade of federal jobs for campaign donations is not illegal, but the American people should be outraged that the leadership of this nation can be bought and sold. Sadly, the lack of ethics by Clinton is echoed by the voters who are willing to support her in spite of schemes like this on.
