Guccifer 2.0 Claims to Have Hacked Clinton Foundation

Update: The Daily Caller now updates:

Update: A review of the newly released documents reveals no information about the Clinton Foundation. Instead, the documents appear to come mostly from the Democratic Party of Virginia. Other documents appear to come from the national Democratic party.

It should be noted, however, that such documents could have been gotten from the Clinton Foundation. I will speculate -- without knowing -- that the Clinton Foundation could have had a lot of documents from other Democrats on their servers.

Though I have no idea if that's what happened.

...

It's kind of scary that this is apparently so easily accomplished, even versus targets you would think have pretty good security protocols.

Believed to be affiliated with the Russian government, Guccifer 2.0 released a screen shot of a list of files said to be from the Clinton non-profitís servers. A massive 820 megabyte file was also released on the site as well as links to several databases containing donor information.

The legitimacy of the documents has not been independently verified.

I don't want to link the Guccifer site where you can download this file because, well, I don't think it's a good idea to encourage anyone to download a file from a claimed hacker and I don't want to be repsonsible for someone absently clicking on a link I provide.

So I'll just note this claim, taken from Twitter:

Lion Lamb @LionandLamb

Wall ST gave TARP funds - taxpayer bailout money - back to the DNC, money laundering! #OctoberSurprise #Guccifer2

And:

DeplorableScottErnst ‏@RealScottErnst 29m29 minutes ago Big banks & corporations may have agreed to donate a certain % of allocated #TARP funds to #Dems

"May have."

I've left out the link -- only people using a clean computer (nothing of their own on it) should click on that, I'm thinking.

But that is the claim being made, that somehow some documents "prove" that TARP money was used to donate to Democratic PACs.

I don't know how you'd establish such a thing -- money is fungible.

Some are alleging an agreement to do this was struck.

Here's an excerpt. I cannot vouch for this being accurate information, or making an accurate implication:


I'll believe it when people who can view the documents and verify them tell me what they say.

Also see ZeroHedge. (h/t illiwinks)

Here's why they're calling this a pay-for-play list: For some reason, the list of donations from Wall Street and banks cross references those donations versus how much the firm received in TARP money.

Almost as if the DNC was keeping track if their Wall Street clients had kicked back amounts commensurate with the largesse the government had given them.

The tweet I posted did not have the column-identifiers included -- but apparently the last two columns were labeled "Donations" (or something like that) and "TARP funds received" (or something like that).

Why would politicians be comparing these two figures, except to decide if their beaks had been sufficiently wetted by the people they had given taxpayer monies to?
