Money Laundering Scheme Exposed: 14 Pro-Clinton Super PACs & Non-Profits Implicated
zerohedge.com ^ | Sep 20, 2016

Posted on 09/21/2016 4:19:20 AM PDT by Helicondelta

David Brock has 7 non-profits, 3 Super PACs, one 527-committee, one LLC, one joint fundraising committee, and one unregistered solicitor crammed into his office in Washington DC.

Uncovered records expose a constant flow of money between these organizations.

The Bonner Group, his professional solicitor, works off a commission. Every time money gets passed around, Bonner receives a 12.5% cut.

Follow the money

...

Let’s recap

Say, for example, you donate $1,062,857 to Media Matters for America. This is how David Brock would have used your charitable donation in 2014:

1- Media Matters would receive your $1,062,857 donation

The Bonner Group would earn a $132,857 commission

Media Matters would retain $930,000

2- Next, Media Matters would give what’s left of your entire donation, $930,000, to the Franklin Education Forum

The Bonner Group would ‘earn’ a $116,250 commission

The Franklin Education Forum would retain $813,750

3- The Franklin Education Forum would then forward the remaining $813,750 to The Franklin Forum

The Bonner Group would ‘earn’ a $101,718 commission

The Franklin Forum would retain $712,031

In the end, Brock’s solicitor would have pocketed $350,825, almost a third of your initial donation! That’s a far cry from the advertised 12.5% commission.

I really hope they nail this man, and I use that term (man) in the loosest of forms. He is a parasite of the worst kind.

Washington and much of the “non-profit” sector is loaded with corruption & sleaze. And it’s all VERY PROFITABLE.

They don’t want Trump. Wonder why? The IRS should be indicting everyone of these groups and their Boards. The Clinton Foundation is a non profit that is used to launder $Billions. No IRS? They are too busy disrupting or denying Republican causes. Not one thing has happened. Now the IRS head is going to be impeached but he is now begging and apologizing. He needs to push it past the election of Hillary and Obama will be caught “Red Handed” in the fraud.

These foundations are the cornerstone of elite politics. We need to find a way to kill these things off, they fund progressivism in every political office and university. They hide and launder money from foreign governments and other entities that despise the USA.

Progressivism only survives by paying people to protest and organize, get rid of the money and the playing field would be a little more level.

It is so close to being a third that I suspect an agreement was made for him to get a cut of one third.

It is a little over 33 percent.

Most of those “eliteists” who mega wealthy while reportedly being pail a salary of $175K -$190K use methods to hide their money that involve shell companies and trusts. Audits of the politiicians finances would be very revealing and piss a lot of Americans off to know not only have they been betrayed but the politicians have been getting very wealthy while doing so.

All of these organizations are ponying up the big bucks to get Hillary elected. If she loses, they go to jail. It’s like when Bill Clinton was first elected. He needed to get rid of a few US Attorneys who were investigating him. He got elected, all the US Attorneys were replaced, and the investigation stopped. Now it’s Hillary in the crosshairs.

I don’t know who the Bonner Group is, but if I had to bet, you would see David Brocks fingerprints all over it.

I don’t give a good gd*mn & “He is a parasite of the worst kind”.... Brock even put out a bounty on Trump’s head for “dirt”/ to bring The Donald down between now & the election.

imho Brock is the highest form of the lowest of the low on Planet Earf including Gerbil Warming.

He ditched his prior career as a conservative & journo & converted his lil azz self to become a Clintonista.

He discovered there is a pot of gold awaiting him everytime he praises Hitlery & that sham of man/husband WeeWilly.

His media startups have paid him well & handsomely,too.

He apprises & considers himself “a builder of institutions”

The BOTTOM line on David Brock is he is a MOONBAT

To: Grampa Dave; Arthur Wildfire! March
And don't forget Sid Blumenthal: a $325,000 employee of the Clinton Foundation; at the same time, Sid was pocketing bigtime from David Brock's n/ps. Read on:

============================================

SOURCE http://www.latimes.com/politics/la-na-benghazi-democrats-20160627-snap-story.html

House Democrats mistakenly release transcript confirming big payout to Clinton friend Sidney Blumenthal Below is the full transcript excerpt that Democrats intended not to publish. It is unclear who the questioner is in the first section.

Q: Did you ever receive any payment from an organization called Media Matters?

A: Oh, yes. I did — I did receive payment in that period from Media Matters.

Q: Okay. And what was your relationship with Media Matters at that time period?

A: I was a consultant to Media Matters. I’m sorry I—

Q: That’s okay.

A: I overlooked that.

Q: When did you become a consultant for Media Matters?

A: I would say the very end of 2012.

Q: Okay. And how did that come about, that you became a consultant for Media Matters?

A: I have had a very long friendship with the chairman of Media Matters, whose name is David Brock, from before he founded this organization, and I have sustained that friendship. And he asked me to help provide ideas and advice to him and his organizations.

Q: So you began your relationship, your paid relationship, with Media Matters at the end of 2012.

A: Right.

Q: Does that continue to this day?

A: It does.

Q: Okay. And what is your salary or your contract with Media Matters? How much money are you earning from them?

A: I’d say it’s about $200,000 a year.

Q: And has that been roughly consistent from when you began receiving payment from Media Matters?

*[redacted due to Chairman Gowdy’s refusal to allow release of transcript].

A: I would say it’s — I’d have to check. I think it’s increased a little bit. It’s increased some.

================================================

Q: Okay. Are you familiar with the organization American Bridge?

A: Yes.

Q: Have you received any compensation from American Bridge over the last five years?

A: Yes.

Q: Okay. And how much compensation have you received from American Bridge?

A: Well, when I talk about that amount of money, I mean all of those organizations.

Q: So all of David Brock’s entities —

A: Right.

Q: — combined are 200,000?

A: About.

Q: Okay.

A: Something like that.

Q: Okay. So there’s American Bridge.

A: Yes.

Q: There’s Media Matters.

A: Right.

Q: Are there any other organizations on which you have done work for Mr. Brock? A: Correct the Record

Q: Okay.

A: — is another organization.

Q: Okay. A: And then there’s the American Independent Institute, which is a journalistic foundation.

Q: So, when you receive your paycheck, who signs the paycheck? Where does that come from?

A: It’s deposited directly. I imagine it comes from David Brock.

Q: Okay. Not David Brock personally but one of his —

A: Whoever — whoever is responsible for that payment.

==============================================

Blumenthal and Republican Select Committee Member Mike Pompeo had the following exchange about Correct the Record:

Q: Fair enough. I’m going to jump around a little bit. You said I think earlier this morning that you still are working for Correct the Record?

A: I am.

Q: And tell me what the mission of Correct the Record is.

A: Correct the Record is pretty much what it says, to correct — it’s a nonprofit organization to correct the record about public misstatements about prominent Democrats.

More Blumenthal money-making

cont---Sid makes more money

The hundreds of thousands of n/p dollars PLUS his Clinton Foundation salary pale against the bundle he made "advising" ex-Amb Joe Wilson (Valerie Plame's hubby).

BACKSTORY Sid Blumenthal was (is) the conniving Clintons' bagman---a $325,000 employee of the Clinton Foundation, he promoted dubious foreign deals and schemes in which he had a financial interest.

Blumenthal was ambidextrous---emailing Libya foreign policy messages w/ one hand....his other hand firmly in the State Dept cookie jar.

In one confidential e-mail to Clinton, Blumenthal was clearly colluding w/ onetime Amb Joe Wilson to help himself to the cookie jar.

GAME ON Wilson pumped himself as a 'director' of Symbion Power---an outfit seeking millions of dollars in contracts from an obscure government agency chaired by Hillary....the Millennium Challenge Corp. (MCC)

In September 2010, Hillary's MCC awarded Symbion $47 million tax dollars for (cough) 'power projects in Tanzania.'

EVER WONDER how much of the $47 million tax dollars got to Tanzania....after the players divvied it up among Blumenthal, Wilson, the Clintons, Obama?

===========================================

FREEPER ACTION PROJECT--DO THIS NOW: demand the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) books be opened. We demand to know the financial details and the scope and dimension of individuals connected to these outrageous State Dept giveaways.........govt parasites profiting at taxayers' expense.

CONTACT CONGRESS----http://www.contactingthecongress.org/

============================================

Milliam Challenge is also the State Dept govt agency from Which Obama took 100 million tax dollars to give to Michelle to give to Morocco "to teach Muslim girls."
