    Trumpís team struggles with new Ďinsiderí status Annie Linskey Globe Staff December 24, 2016 WASHINGTON ó When Donald Trump ran for president, most of the Republican Partyís biggest donors sat out, believing he couldnít win or troubled by what he was saying on the campaign trail. Or both. Now that heís won thereís a new opportunity for those donors to make up for that lost time: Itís called the inauguration. These quadrennial festivities are always a time for donors to curry favor by giving lavishly, particularly when a new president is being feted. President Obamaís second inaugural essentially allowed unfettered...

  • How Democrats Stopped Worrying and Learned to Love Big Donor Money

    The New York Times ^ | 30 September 2016 | NICHOLAS CONFESSORE and RACHEL SHOREY
    Democrats denounced it as an assault on democracy and a sop to billionaires when the Supreme Court issued a ruling two years ago that loosened limits on campaign giving. But Hillary Clinton and Democratic Party leaders are now exploiting the decision, funneling tens of millions of dollars from their wealthiest donors into a handful of presidential swing states. The flow of money, documented in Federal Election Commission reports, shows Democrats expanding their fund-raising advantage in the final phase of the presidential race, defying expectations at the beginning of the campaign that Republicans would dominate the money chase. The shift has...

The DNC released a statement pre-emptively claiming that this was the work of Russia (and reigniting Trump's links to Putin). Probably just coincidence...

    The new batch of emails showing that the State Department gave special access to top Clinton Foundation donors while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state brings to mind the case of a shady Miami businessman serving a 12-year prison sentence after scamming the government out of millions. His name is Claudio Osorio, a Clinton Foundation donor who got $10 million from the government after the Clinton State Department reportedly pulled some strings. Osorio got the money from the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC), a federal agency that operates under the guidance of the State Department, to build houses in Haiti...

    His only qualification was giving lots of money to the Clinton Foundation A few weeks ago, ABC broke the story of Raj Fernando, a big-money donor to the Clinton Foundation - as well as past campaigns of both Obama and Hillary - and how he managed to land a spot on the prestigious International Security Advisory Board. Thatís a board generally populated by former generals, governors and top diplomats, who advise the Secretary of State on international security matters. Lots of eyebrows were raised when a securities trader with no background in any of this was introduced as a new...

    A major donor to the Clinton Foundation was tapped by Hillary Clintonís former chief of staff to an intelligence advisory board Ė despite his inexperience in the field, according to ABC News. Rajiv Fernandoís only apparent qualification as a member of the International Security Advisory Board was his technological acumen, the network reported.

Euclidean Capitalóalso owned by Mr. Simonsóhas given the Clinton campaign over $7 million in contributions, and such figures are likely to...

    A for-profit educational corporation that has donated to the Clinton Foundation agreed to pay $95.5 million to the Obama administration as a settlement for a government lawsuit alleging that it was using illegal tactics to lure in prospective students. The Education Management Corporation was sued by the Department of Justice in 2011 for multiple recruitment violations, including paying its recruiters based on the number of students it enrolled, and exaggerating the career opportunities that were available to graduates. The lawsuit argued that the violations made the corporation ineligible for the $11 billion in state and federal financial aid it has...

    Wait for it. Carly Fiorina, it turns out, is a former donor not only to the Democratic Party at large, but to one high profile Democrat in particular: Hillary Clinton. And unlike Donald Trump, who has been quite open about his own donations for business reasons, Fiorina has tried to convey the exact opposite impression, as in her first debate appearance in August, when, looking around at her fellow candidates on the ďsecond tier,Ē Fiorina went after Trump with this line: I didnít get a phone call from Bill Clinton before I jumped in the race. Did any of you...
