WIKI LEAKS EXPOSES DNC AS PAY-TO-PLAY AND INSIDER TRADING CRIME ORGANIZATION
Guccifer 2.0 leaks Democratic Party emails ranging from the unsavory to the possibly criminal by Edmund Kozak | Updated 14 Sep 2016 at 10:51 AM Yet another new wave of hacked Democratic National Committee emails has come crashing down on the Clinton campaign, courtesy of WikiLeaks and the hacker Guccifer 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 that appears to list a number of donors, the amounts of money they raised, and the ambassadorships and other positions they hold or held — and may have been awarded for their efforts. These include Matthew Barzun, current ambassador to the United Kingdom, who raised over $3.5 million for the DNC; Frank Sanchez, former undersecretary of Commerce, who paid over $3.4 million; and Eileen Chamberlain Donahoe, who paid more than $2 million for an ambassadorship to the U.N.
As if a thriving pay-to-pay scheme weren’t bad enough, the latest DNC leaks also include a file that 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.
