The latest discovery within the 20,000 emails released by Wikileaks shows a pattern within the Democrat Party that’s not only extremely troubling, but is highly illegal, and Hillary Clinton is going to have a tough time trying to distance herself from this one.
The worst kept secret in Washington is that federal appointments are often pay-for-play positions, but there’s rarely any solid proof of it happening…until now. Numerous email chains revealed spreadsheets with major donors listed on them that party officials were considering for appointments to federal boards and commissions.
The Daily Caller reported that the emails raise serious legal and ethical questions for the Democrats, who started considering people for these positions back in April, which has experts saying that it was done for the purpose of fundraising – a big no, no.
More from the Caller:
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 records, which WikiLeaks released along with nearly 20,000 hacked DNC emails and other documents on Friday, also expose one of the Beltway’s worst kept secrets: that wealthy politicos can often buy their way to presidential appointments.
President Obama has been criticized for appointing dozens of top fundraisers — called “bundlers” in the political fundraising realm — to ambassadorships and other cushy federal positions.
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.
The proposed appointments also provide more evidence that the DNC favored Clinton over her former primary challenger, Bernie Sanders.
Most of the donors listed on the spreadsheet have given to Clinton’s campaign. None gave to Sanders.
With the current controversy over the DNC rigging the primaries in favor of Hillary Clinton, this news isn’t going to be received too well by the general public since it shows just how deep the corruption goes within the DNC. Hillary has since denied that she had anything to do with the primaries, but it’s going to be all but impossible for her to deny this one, considering it would be her and her alone who made future appointments, should she find herself in the White House.
However, with each new revelation from the email dump, her chances become slimmer, considering what we’re witnessing is the complete meltdown of the corrupt DNC, and it couldn’t be better for the country or its people. It’s about time these frauds were exposed for the corrupt liars they are.
