And by “this” I mean why would a law firm risk their reputation and engage in clear shady criminal behavior to donate to democrats in general, and the Clintons, in particular. From the article:
Hillary Clinton’s campaign is returning thousands of dollars in donations linked to what may be one of the largest straw-donor schemes ever uncovered.
A small law firm that has given money to Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Sen. Harry Reid, President Obama and many others is accused of improperly funneling millions of dollars into Democratic Party coffers. The program was exposed by the Center for Responsive Politics and the same team of Boston Globe investigative reporters featured in the movie “Spotlight.”
The Thornton Law Firm has just 10 partners, but dollar for dollar, it’s one of the nation’s biggest political donors, reports CBS News correspondent Tony Dokoupil.
But according to the firm’s own documents – leaked by a whistleblower — days or even hours after making these donations, partners received bonuses matching the amount they gave.
“Once the law firm knew that we had these records, they didn’t deny that this was the case,” said Scott Allen, Boston Globe’s Spotlight editor.
“If you give a donation and then somebody else reimburses you for that contribution, that is a clear violation of the spirit and the letter of the law at the state and federal levels,” Allen added.
First I want to mention that for every one of these cases of malfeasance we uncover there are, like in the case of roaches or other pests, hundreds if not thousands of others we never hear about. The democratic party is a corrupt influence peddling monopoly. I think we have so much evidence today that if you need the power of government to help you make money, from something that will be economically destructive and produces no value, you buy favors from a democrat, that this assertion is indisputable.
The democratic party may pretend that they are the party of the little people and that it is the others that are in bed with the evil oligarchy of the rich, but the facts bear out differently. When you need favors, you buy it from democrats. This reality is by design, and has enriched a ton of the worlds most corrupt people. And Clintons are not just the pinnacle of that corruption, but have positioned themselves in such a way that they are the gatekeepers of that influence peddling monopoly as well as above the law.
It is also not a coincidence that the legal profession is so predominantly skewed towards the left. sure they would like you to believe it is because they share the empathy shown on the left, but the reality, as more and more instances like this show, the legal profession depends heavily on government over regulation to make big money. And who sells better favors for them to make big money than the democrats?
Before you idiotically try to defend the Clintons, note that these Clintons have been caught repeatedly violating these laws. When it was exposed that they took foreign donations, recently revealed details show Clinton’s reaction wasn’t to shut that practice down, but to try and make sure they could keep doing it.
Think hard about the fact that the Clintons, and democrats in general, react when caught by basically counting on the DNC operatives with bylines to defend them and to keep doing more of the same. Can you imagine the level of corruption these people would reach if they were rewarded with the WH?
