Email exchanges involving top officials at the Democratic National Committee released along with private documents by WikiLeaks show that DNC officials hoped to reward top donors and insiders with appointments to federal boards and commissions in coordination with the White House.

The revelations give an inside look into how the Democratic Party attempted to leverage its access and influence with the White House to bring in cash.

In an April 20, 2016 email, DNC National Finance Director Jordan Kaplan canvassed what appears to be the committee’s finance department – its fundraising office – for names of people (mainly donors) to reward with federal appointments on boards and commissions.
That email exchange yielded a list compiled by DNC Finance Chief of Staff Scott Comer and emailed to Kaplan on April 26 titled “Boards and Commissions Names_Final,” which listed the names of twenty-three DNC donors and insiders.

Kaplan emailed the list to Amanda Moose, special assistant to the president for presidential personnel, later that day. In an email without a subject line, Kaplan wrote just one line: “For your review,” seemingly referring to a previous conversation or exchange.

Then on April 28, Kaplan missed a call with Moose. He emailed Comer asking for Moose’s number that afternoon, presumably to call her back. Comer sent Kaplan the number. It’s unclear if Kaplan and Moose spoke.

But the two may have spoken several days later; a May 3 email from Comer to Kaplan shows that Moose wanted to set up a “20 minute conversation” with Kaplan.

None of the individuals on the list have been appointed to boards or commissions since the email exchanges took place almost three months ago. A few were named to slots in previous years.

The White House strongly denied any link between financial support for the party and appointments.

“Being a donor does not get you a role in this administration,” said White House spokesman Eric Schultz in an email to OpenSecrets Blog, “nor does it preclude you from getting one. We’ve said this for many years now and there’s nothing in the emails that have been released that contradicts that.”

The people on the list weren’t just hefty donors to the DNC; many also gave big money to Obama.

This is pay to play system sir, the university studies two of them by different schools call the USA system a oligarchy! Meaning you get only what you pay for! The ones with the biggest cash flow make and rewrite the rules as they see fit and ethics are just not existent for either party! Now the current choices for president are: Trump someone who did not pay small contractors and used the court system one might say unethically, called N.A.T.O. Alliances into question due to Russian influence, even asked a Russia to hack a elected officials email, has already benefits from such a hack showing Russia ties. Trump hides his tax returns!

H. Clinton: used a personal email with classified doc, deleted emails and pretty much muffed inquiry into it! Sat on the board of wall mart, has tons of cash from Wall Street donated to her. Poorly choose her VP pick due to donations and Wall Street influences. Made questionable calls in foreign lands while in office at best in regard to Americans lives! Has linked her campaign to DNC ethical miss steps! Has not spoken enough to clear issues real people face in today's rigged economic reality!

Also North Korea has declared a state of war on America and it has stated its the only way they would use nukes! China and Russia are doing joint military exercises in the disputed South China Sea. Russia is looking to expand beyond not just in influence but land grabs on a massive scale might be a reality.

China still ships most of the purchased goods here. Trade deficits and job out sourcing were a Republican led thing that's drained the work force as well as to many HB1 visas being released to bring skilled cheaper labor into the USA. Corps are dumping tons of unchecked cash into elections due to lobbyists power and ethical breaks in the court system. These same breaks of ethics are allowing people to die in police custody with out the legal system holding anyone accountable.

One could hope for hope and change! Best of luck!

Well, anyone can register any unrestricted top level domain they want. Having a .org means absolutely nothing. I do believe opensecrets is a legit source though. And let's be real, nobody who pays attention is surprised by this story. It isn't absolute proof of corruption, but anyone who can't see the writing on the wall is kidding themselves.

That's not a good thing to teach people

I could register maketrumppope.org and set that site up today for less than $10. And believe me, he would be a great pope. The best.

I believe it was around 3rd grade when they taught us that. I went to a bad Elementary School, when internet was a novelty in the classroom concerning children.

https://www.godaddy.com/domains/searchresults.aspx?checkAvail=1&tmskey=&domainToCheck=hillaryforprision



hillaryforwin.com Premium - $45,000.00* + $14.99*/year $14.99*/yr when you renew

O_o wtf


hillaryforprision.ceo

I keep forgetting they are adding new top level domains. Some of these are quite amusing. I think I was going to say something else but now I am 100% distracted lol

I'm sorry I derailed this thread. I still don't like this system of bribery and borderline corruption we have going on.

Yeah I don't like it either but at least we get mad when it gets revealed and they have to try to hide it better afterwards. In some places they would laugh at you then keep doing it in broad daylight, I'm looking at you Mexico.
