Sen. Bernie Sanders claimed he got into the presidential race to lead a revolution for the heart and soul of the Democratic Party, but over a year after he launched his bid for the White House, everything he and his supporters oppose continue to finance the political party.
The Russian hacktivist, Guccifer 2.0 leaked classified Democratic National Committee donor lists on Saturday, revealing that the party’s cash flow is dependent on the military industrial complex, big pharma, big banks that received government bailouts, and Bain Capital.
Ironically, the DNC slammed Bain Capital, and its founder Mitt Romney for supposed predatory standards in 2012. They claimed Bain was responsible for destroying economic lives of companies, individuals, and entire communities.
They had no problem, however, taking in $133,600 from Jonathan Lavine, the co-managing partner of Bain. He was a high dollar donor who attended an April 2016 fundraiser according to the leaked documents.
Other high-dollar donors at that April fundraiser included Democratic lobbyists, the same kind that President Obama promised to get rid of when he promised to “drain the swamp.
Lobbyists like Vin Robert, Heather and Tony Podesta, Ted Burnes, and Steve Elmendorf also gave hundreds of thousands of dollars to the DNC.
The military industrial complex also ponied up big.
George Pedersen, the CEO of ManTech Intl. gave $10,000. Ulysese Jefferson, a consultant at the same company, also given more than $10,000 since 2014.
Other donors from companies with military contracts including General Electric and Boeing were also listed.
Despite all the efforts of Occupy Wall Street and the Bernie Bros, big banks that received bailouts including Goldman Sachs, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and Citigroup.
As were another big target of the far-left, big pharmaceutical companies including Pfizer and Amgen.
Just before this document dump by Guccifer 2.0, DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz insisted that no financial information was compromised, but hactivist proved her wrong.
“Ha! Ha! Ha! Who still doubts I extracted more than 2 files?” Guccifer wrote on his blog. “I got tons of files and docs!!!”
