If you’re tired of alleged debate “fact-checkers” who just parrot the leftist line, here’s an antidote:
Julian Assange and Wikileaks failed to deliver on Tuesday, but the hacker known as Guccifer 2.0 released some documents allegedly hacked from the Clinton Foundation. They include spreadsheets showing how much taxpayer money (anywhere from $1.4 billion to $25 billion) Wall Street banks and financial firms got from TARP (the Troubled Asset Relief Program), correlated to each recipient’s generous donations to the DNC, the DCCC and various top Democrats, such as Barney Frank. It suggests a circle of ill-gotten cash in which Democrats, under the guise of “saving the economy,” sent billions of our tax dollars to giant Wall Street banks that showed their gratitude by donating a portion of it right back to the same Washington Democrats who championed the TARP bill.
Clinton Foundation president Donna Shalala denied that the documents came from the organization, but if not, someone sure went to a lot of trouble and financial research to create fake ones. I notice her denial also didn’t include a claim that the amounts of bailout dollars and donations were inaccurate. The last time Guccifer 2.0 released damaging files, the DNC tried to shift focus by accusing Russia of hacking them, but while Guccifer 2.0 admits being of Eastern European extraction, he/she denies any involvement with Russia.
So if the Democrats want to deflect attention from the real story yet again, they shouldn’t try the worn-out “blame Russia” dodge. I’d suggest that they proudly proclaim that these documents prove that under the Democrats, the government works like a well-oiled machine. They don’t have to admit that it’s a slot machine. Donors drop cash in, and money just comes pouring out.
At a rally, Hillary Clinton mocked Donald Trump’s 1995 tax form by sniping, “What kind of genius loses $1 billion in a single year?!” Well, at least it was his own money. What kind of genius loses $6 billion worth of taxpayers’ money while Secretary of State?
As I keep saying, this is why it’s so hard for Democrats to attack Trump: anything they throw at him, Hillary Clinton has done the same, only much worse. In this case, six times worse. And with our money.
