Early Tuesday afternoon, interim chair of the DNC, Donna Brazile, issued a statement indicating the Democratic Party was bracing for a new batch of email leaks to be released. About an hour later, Wikileaks delivered, tweeting a link to a 670 MB file, along with instructions for downloading. In her statement, Brazile warned of potential malware risks in accessing the documents and outright blamed Donald Trump and “Russian agents,” despite the fact the hacker has not yet been identified by law enforcement officials.
Also in the leak was a detailed list of over 100,000 donations dating back to 2008, including some high-profile donors who received international ambassadorships from President Barack Obama in return for their pledges to both the DNC and Obama’s Organizing for Action nonprofit.
Matthew Barzun took the number one spot, donating more than $3.5 million. In return, he served as U.S. Ambassador to Sweden from 2009 to 2011, worked as President Obama’s National Finance Chair during his 2012 reelection campaign, and is currently U.S. Ambassador to the United Kingdom.
Just under him is Julius Genachowski, who was appointed chair of the FCC for his generous donation of just under $3.5 million. Tony West paid a little over a million dollars to be appointed the Associate Attorney General on March 9, 2012, the very same day his money is recorded in DNC’s ledger.

Just last night, Hillary posted a video to social media breaking down the meaning of “pay-to-play,” throwing Donald Trump under the bus for shady politics and trying to get out of an investigation. Is that a joke? More than half of Americans think Hillary Clinton is a criminal, a fact that seems to escape her completely. Thus far, Clinton has done a pretty good job of staying sheltered from any consequences of her actions, and there is no indication that is about to change anytime soon.
