Hillary and corruption. Those two words seem to go “hand in hand”. Whatever Hillary’s been involved in corruption seems to follow. Benghazi. Emails. Clinton Foundation, or the Democratic primary. You name it. It doesn’t matter. In fact, her campaign policy seems to be the more corrupt you are, the more rewarded you are. Just ask Debbie Wasserman Schultz who resigned as DNC chair after emails released showed the DNC undermined the Sanders campaign, but then was given an “honorary chair” position in the Clinton campaign.
WikiLeaks founder and Editor-in-Chief Julian Assange joined Democracy Now on Monday from London after the release of nearly 20,000 DNC emails revealing how the Democratic Party favored Hillary Clinton and worked behind the scenes to discredit and defeat Bernie Sanders.
JULIAN ASSANGE: JULIAN ASSANGE: Well, I mean, that’s interesting. We have seen that with a lot of other publications. I guess there’s a question: What does that mean for the U.S. Democratic Party? It is important for there to be examples of accountability. The resignation was an example of that. Now, of course, Hillary Clinton has tried to immediately produce a counter-example by putting out a statement, within hours, saying that Debbie Wasserman Schultz is a great friend, and she’s incorporating her into her campaign, she’s going to be pushing for her re-election to the Congress.
So that’s a very interesting signaling by Hillary Clinton that if you act in a corrupt way that benefits Hillary Clinton, you will be taken care of. Why does she need to put that out? Certainly, it’s not a signal that helps with the public at all. It’s not a signal that helps with unity at the DNC, at the convention. It’s a signal to Hillary Clinton partisans to keep on going on, you’ll be taken care of. But it’s a very destructive signal for a future presidency, because it’s—effectively, it’s expanding the Overton window of corruption. It doesn’t really matter what you do, how you behave; as long as that is going to benefit Hillary Clinton, you’ll be protected.
That’s right! If you are a friend of Hillary’s and enjoy supporting corruption…no problem. She will take care of you. If you are willing to do the “dirty work” for her, don’t worry she’s going to give you a nice job for it. Corruption in the Democratic party is rewarded nicely. It doesn’t matter what you do, as long as it benefits Hillary getting elected, you are going to be rewarded. Look at Debbie. She is now an “HONORARY CHAIR”. How nice is that?
Are you shocked? Not at all. This isn’t new? It’s the Clinton way. The Clinton Foundation. The Clinton legacy. Is this REALLY where America is right now? Supporting crime and corruption? It’s hard to believe the majority of the people are willing to set this all aside and are still willing to put Hillary into the White House. It’s going to be a sad day for America if that happens.
The Democratic Party is the party of corruption and don’t expect Obama’s henchmen – Comey or Lynch, to do anything about it either. Why do you think the Democratic party and Hillary want more and more illegal immigrants? They need as many votes as possible to stay in office.
What’s ironic is Julian Assange is just trying to get the REAL news and data to “WE THE PEOPLE”. Of course, like Snowden, if Assange gets caught he could be tried for treason. The real criminal is Hillary Clinton, but power and money begets more power. She may be put on trial…but that’s as far as the “dog and pony show” will ever go. She has much too much money and power to ever be punished for her crimes.
God Bless us all!
