Recently-obtained documents emanating from a computer hack of the Clinton Foundationby the enigmatic cyber-sleuth known as «Guccifer 2.0» reinforce previous allegations that the tax-exempt foundation engaged in what amounted to a «pay-to-play» extortion racket. The most recent hacked files originated with the Democratic National Committee (DNC), the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), and the Virginia Democratic Party and were hacked from the computer systems of the Clinton Foundation.

The recent hacked files describe a kickback scheme in which Democratic members of Congress received lucrative campaign donations from Wall Street in return for their support for the federal bailout of several financially-teetering banks, commonly known as TARP or «Troubled Asset Relief Program». One of the largest recipients of Wall Street campaign cash largesse was the House of Representative’s top Democrat, Nancy Pelosi.

Another architect of the TARP bailout who benefited from bank donations to his campaign was Massachusetts Democratic Representative Barney Frank, the chairman of the powerful House Financial Services Committee, the panel that oversees the federal government’s regulation of Wall Street. Donors to Fran’s political coffers included some of the very banks and other firms that were bailed out by TARP: Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Bank of New York Mellon, Citigroup, Capital One, Fifth Third, Morgan Stanley, Wells Fargo, Merril Lynch, KeyCorp, and Huntington Banchares.

Other files from the Clinton Foundation list a number of Hollywood celebrities and West Coast high tech moguls who gave big donations to the foundation from 2009 to 2015. They include: Barbra Streisand, Tom Hanks, «Star Trek» and «Star Wars director J.J. Abrams, «Pirates of the Caribbean» director Gregor «Gore» Verbinski, Israeli-American movie mogul Haim Saban, San Francisco venture capitalist Sanford Robertson, Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff, Google CEO Eric Schmidt, Walt Disney Company president and CEO Robert Iger, Microsoft mogul Bill Gates, and Microsoft vice president Steve Ballmer.
