This Is How Much It 'Costs' To Get An Ambassadorship: Guccifer 2.0 Leaks DNC 'Pay-To-Play' Donor List

Tyler Durden's picture

After addressing a cybersecuirty conference in London, notorious hacker 'Guccifer' shared over 500Mb of documents detailing 100,000 DNC donors contact info and donations. A large number of the largest donors received senior diplomatic or political positions following thge donations, ranging from UK Ambassador to Assistant Attorney General. 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 dcoments contained detailed lists of 100,000 alledged donors, addresses, and phone numbers, and well as amounts donated...

Here is the first cut of the alleged major donors on the leaked documents and the positions they received (via

  • #1 Matthew Berzun … Ambassador to UK
  • #2 Julius Genachowski … Former chairman to FCC
  • #3 Frank Sanchez…. Under secretary of commerce
  • #8 Kirk Wagner… Ambassador to Singapore
  • #9 Alan Solomont … Ambassador to Spain
  • #11 John Roos… Ambassador to Japan
  • #12 Nicole Avant… Ambassador to Bahamas
  • #13 Eileen Chamberlain Donahoe … Ambassador to the UN
  • #16 Steve Westly – CFO of California
  • #17 Don Beyer – Ambassador to Switzerland
  • #21 Don Gips – Ambassador to South Africa
  • #22 Howard Gutman – Ambassador to Belgium
  • #24 Cynthia Stroum – Ambassador to Luxembourg
  • #27 Mark Gilbert – Ambassador to New Zealand
  • #31 Norm Eisen – Ambassador to Czech Republic
  • #37 Bruce Oreck – Ambassador to Finland
  • #43 Tony West – deputy Attorney General
  • #45 Bill Kennard – Ambassador to EU


The DNC responded to the latest hack claim Tuesday through its Interim Chair Donna Brazile, who stated that the “DNC is the victim of a crime,” which she blamed on “Russian state-sponsored agents,” while also cautioning that the hacked documents were still being authenticated by the DNC legal team, as “it is common for Russian hackers to forge documents.” DNC pre-emptively published a statement in an attempt to change the narrative...

Once again blaming Russia (and Trump)... As RT reports, it's not the first time that the name of Vladimir Putin has been brought up in the US presidential campaign, but this time the US president used this “argument” while openly campaigning for Clinton against Trump. The situation has become “really ludicrous and it borders on the ridiculous,” believes Gregory R. Copley, editor of Defense & Foreign Affairs.

“In my 50 odd years covering the US government, I have never seen this level of partisanship within the administration where a sitting president actually regards the opposition party as the enemy of the state,” Copley told RT.


The analyst said that the democrats are “blaming the messenger to revert the attention from the message.”


“The message which Donald Trump delivered on RT was unambiguous in his campaign. Just like the fact that WikiLeaks revelation of the hacked emails was very explicit in showing up what the Democratic party itself was doing,” Copley added.


The US establishment is “sacrificing key bilateral relationships in order to win [a] domestic election,” believes Copley. He added that neither Obama nor Clinton are interested in unifying the country, but they are rather “interested in winning and engaging in what modern democracy seems to have become – the tyranny of the marginal majority over the marginal minority.”


“When you think about the number of times that the Clinton campaign has brought up President Putin and the alleged Russian hacking of Hillary Clinton’s service, it makes you wonder just how desperate they are,” Copley noted. “President Obama has lost literally all prestige in an international community…with the loss of prestige he has become desperate.”

It is just haRd to believe what has taken place in America for the last 50 years. I feel cheated and deceived. 

If I was a law enforcement officer, this is the kind of stuff that will make their jobs a lot harder because of need to maintain law and order in hostile environments.

May America R.I.P.

I am one and it makes the idea of prosecuting day to day minor crimes really infuriating.

As much as people on ZH and other alt news sites are enlightened,95% of the general population still doesn't get it. They may be angry but they don't understand what the root problems are.

That last picture.... holy shitballs.  What the fuck is THAT?  I thought Michelle O'Bama (they're Irish, you know) was the end-all, be-all in Wookieness.  I was fucking WRONG.  Badly, horribly WRONG.

I guess to be head of the FCC is worth the big bucks? I wonder what level of fuckitude this guy was able to commit?

mosfet's picture

These days all the FCC does is 'clear' out (i.e. steal) bands of frequencies from one party and sell it to the highest bidder.

How come the men had to pay 7 figures and the women paid 6 figures? That sounds sexist to me.

Oh regional Indian's picture

Actually the sexist thing might be that the wimmin soft power, like UN educational stuff and shit. The men, straight for the jugular, Ambassadorships, FCC control (now that being bought is pretty f'n scary)...

Reposting what I think is an important piece of must-read...un-taught history and civics...the lie is pretty goddamned HUGE...and the reason this kind of fukkery can go on in DC...

The utopian world of neomilitant feminism. In their view, these guys were lucky they were allowed to pay for these positions at all. Or, maybe it was mythical glass-ceiling theory already have more money by default because you have dude plumbing = you have to cough up more to enjoy the same type of bennies the poor oppressed womenz are paying for.

The Clinton Crime Foundation is “organized crime” at its finest.

Apparently if the dnc wasn't sure about gender you paid more than the women but less than the men.

The real shit bags are those that accept the money.  Those that pay understand what's needed of them in this pay-to-play system.  

Unfortunately, people will reflexively thing this only happens with Democrats when we know this isn't the case (i.e., "Good Job Brownie").  I really do think that something is in the air and have the parasites being to freak out.

For every appointment made there were dozens of other 'favors' and quid-pro-quos.

This racket appears to have been pretty free-form.

Everything is for sale.

IF you see a massive 'donation' total but don't see a corresponding appointment then you must assume that something of equal or greater value was SOLD! to the buyer.


What was really SOLD?


YOU.  AND.  I.

The redefining of the concept of "sucess" is beginning to take hold slowly. These people are common criminals, nothing more.

All I hear is how oppressed blacks are in this country and all the while they're kicking out hundreds of thousands,if not millions,to purchase Ambassadorships or making millions of dollars playing sports. Where can I sign up on this oppression program.

Strangely, anyone outside the US has been baffled for years by the openly corrupt, avericious system that sucks such insane amounts of money into its grubby paws, and yet it is only now that the indigenous population seems to be working it out. The UK manages an election in 6 weeks, with limited advertising, which is not paid for (part of the broadcasters' contact is to provide airtime for political parties, in a structured, "fair" way, agreed by all parties). They are still corrupt money-grubbing thieves, sorry, I mean "politicians", but the opportunity for graft and corruption is at least limited slightly.

Is it finally time for us politics to grow up and join the rest of the world?

The UK is one of the only civilized countries in the world with worse corruption.

Another day in the life of Pesky Putin.  DNC, " Blah! Blah! BLAH! It was the Russians, the evil Russians!". No one gives a rats ass if it was  the Russians or not. Most of the DNC general population members can't even tell you who the vice president is or where Russia is on a map. The Right wing hates you at this point and is happy if it's the Russians did it or someone else did. Think I give a shit who tells me about  my house being robbed? I care about my hoyse being robbed. YOU ARE THE CRIMINALS HERE DNC! Blame whoever you like. IT'S Getting old you bunch of crooks.... Trump 2016

Hi, Newbie!

How does it feel to be one of the despised enforcement thugs of a doomed oppressive Oligarchy?

You are an enemy of the Citizenry.

Thank God there's no pay to play in law enforcement.

Nope. Nothing to see there.
