Clinton Foundation Allegedly Hacked Exposing Thousands Of Donor Databases; "Pay To Play" Folder

Tyler Durden's picture

While the hack of the Clinton Foundation was foreshadowed two months ago, moments ago notorious hacker Gufficer 2.0, who previously was responsible for hacking the DNC and DNCC not to mention the resignation of Debbie Wasserman Shultz, announced that the moment "many of you have been waiting for" has come, by revealing that the Clinton Foundation has been hacked.

This is what Guccifer 2.0, who has denied being affiliated with the Russian government claiming that like the original Guccifer he is from Romania, posted moments ago on his website:

So, this is the moment. I hacked the Clinton Foundation server and downloaded hundreds of thousands of docs and donors’ databases.


Hillary Clinton and her staff don’t even bother about the information security. It was just a matter of time to gain access to the Clinton Foundation server.

The unknown hacker has allegedly exposed 1,000 of Hillary donors (a small list of master donors can be found here)...



...corporate donations made to various House representatives....

Guccifer well as Wall Street bank donations, curiously cross-referenced to how much TARP funding they received.



As Guccifer notes," It looks like big banks and corporations agreed to donate to the Democrats a certain percentage of the allocated TARP funds."

Guccifer 2.0 also posted a note to Julian Assange who was mocked on Tuesday morning after he failed to produce Clinton documents he has long claimed to have.

“P.S. I’m pleased to congratulate Wikileaks on their 10th anniversary!!!,” Guccifer 2.0 writes. “Julian, you are really cool! Stay safe and sound!"

* * *

But the most interesting, and perhaps damning, finding is the following: a root directory snapshot revealing a folder which Hillary may have some trouble explaining: "Pay to Play"


The hacker also provides a link to the hundreds of thousands of other documents he has access to saying "I can’t post all databases here for they’re too large. I’m looking for a better way to release them now."

We will go through the files, with a focus on Pay to Play because this may be the clearest confirmation that after repeated accusations that the Clinton Foundation was primarily a conduit for rich donors to get access to privileged kickbacks, or well "pay to play", this was indeed the case, although the fact that someone actually left a folder with that name in the foundation's server makes us wonder if someone is really that stupid, or whether this hack is even real.

To be sure, as The Hill notes, some of the files contained in the leaked data dump appear to originate not from the Foundation but from the DNCC:

A sampling of the posted documents include a spreadsheet of big bank donations, a list of primarily California donors, an outdated spreadsheet of some Republican House members — and a screenshot of files he claimed to have obtained, one of which was titled “Pay to Play.”


But there are a number of red flags that suggest the documents are in fact from a previous hack on the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), not a new hack on the Clinton Foundation.


A spot check of some of the people on the donor list against FEC filings found that they all lined up with DCCC contributions.


The Clinton Foundation discloses its donors, and many of the alleged donors published by Guccifer 2.0 do not appear to have given to the organization.

One spreadsheet was allegedly created by a Kevin C. McKeon at DCCC in 2009. There was a Kevin McKeon that worked at DCCC at that time.

The Clinton Foundation has denied the hack, with president Donna Shalala saying that “none of the files or folders shown are ours.”

I'm taking all the $50 action you want to thow at me, 4:1 odds that this amounts to NOTHING.  Forget indictment, there won't even be an investigation.

No F'n way I take that bet (see MEMO TO THE WORLD, below).

I'm sure these donors are all just goodlyhearted - they want to help poor people in Haiti.

In January 2007, John Young, who runs, a site that publishes a wealth of sensitive and classified information, left Wikileaks, claiming the operation was a CIA front. Young also published some 150 email messages sent by Wikileaks activists on cryptome. They include a disparaging comment about this editor by Wikileaks co-founder Dr. Julian Assange of Australia. Assange lists as one of his professions "hacker." His German co-founder of Wikileaks uses a pseudonym, "Daniel Schmitt."

Everyone knows you make a weird name for the porn folder... that way no one thinks to look there.


Also, is someone making a list of these people to hand out to everyone not on this list when SHTF?

Using TARP money to make political contributions?
Now that could be the crime of the century.
If we had a real Attorney General there would be so many politicians and banksters going to jail that they’d have to release the drug dealers.

It’s what Hitlary is all about

Probably a rub-your-nose in a no-wikileaks release

Wikileaks as distraction from the real story.

This doesn't look real.

Donations listed in a column next to TARP?
Pay to Play folder?

I smell bullshit. It's fake... it's Trump-bait.

The Clintons would have to be incredibly STUPID to leave anything on an Internet connected server after what's happened recently with Hacking.  I don't believe there is anything incriminating on that server.

Prove me wrong, Grucifer 2.

This reminds me of that Nirvana song, "Smells like bullshit." I'm sure the Clintons are guilty of all kinds of stuff, but this just seems too easy.

Just enough to keep everyone frothing at the mouth, not quite enough to achieve anything.  Anyone see a pattern here?

PT's picture

There is an old sales technique where you basically ask your customers to list all their objections to buying the product.  Once they finish listing all their objections, you ask "Is there anything else?"  And you keep asking until they have run out of objections.  "Is there anything else that would prevent you from buying one of these today?"  And once they finish listing their objections, you basically ignore them all and continue on with your spiel.  I dunno.  I was never good at sales anyway.

Assange, now this, just enough to keep everyone frothing at the mouth, but somehow "not enough" to do anything else ...

Oh yeah, Hint to Gucc2:  How much info have you got?  Hard drives are relatively cheap.  Memory sticks too, although the costs can add up quite quickly once you consider multiple copies.  But then perhaps some trusted followers could help with a few "Chain hard drives" - you know, make a couple of copies and give them to your mates, who make a couple of copies and then ... but you should have already been doing this before you go public.  And if you want to go cheaper, you could always limit yourself to releasing only the juicy bit and releasing the juicy bits FIRST.

Today PT goes on record and predicts multiple mouth-frothing for the next month but no-one gets bitten.  And then it all magically disappears.  PT is too wussy to put money on his bets, but you gotta admit he's NOT exactly going out on a limb here by making such a bland "prediction".  An ever-so-slightly "bolder" prediction is that H will start looking extra smug, clearly enjoying the show and unable to control her mirth.

In case I forget, let us know if I am wrong (or right).

The Clintons are not stupid; they simply do not care anymore.

Creative_Destruct's picture

Why worry when all media outlets are captured or neutralized by your plants or allies?

But it just seems too damn stupid, even for the arrogant Clintons, to leave a folder titled "Pay to Play.,"

they have several other affiliated entities running too which funnel in and out of the Foundation which I have heard him make a point of at every opportunity on fox etc. And $100B is a conservative estimate too apparently. So that's like 2.5 times the size of the Madoff fraud - min.

I've downloaded it. There's really "Pay to Play" folder in it :D

It's nothing really special in it, 10 files of stuff like this:


Policy Summary


Jeff Denham wrote a bill (HR 2904) that would lead to greater profits and opportunities for telecom corporations.  (The bill would create an advisory committee to make recommendations to FEMA on what to procure for any new “Integrated Public Alert Warning System. (PAWS)” It gives telecom CEOs valuable access to government officials who decide which systems to purchase.


In total, companies that could stand to benefit from Denham's bill gave the Congressman $27,750 this cycle. Timing is also an issue, as several telecom companies gave to Denham at dates that show potential pay to play:

From the download site:

"This file has been reported as a violation and is under review, download with caution"

Grab a copy while you can.

I could write a script to email a short "ping" type email to all the email addresses in the spreadsheet. I'm guessing several others are many steps ahead of me, though.

Has anyone given thought to the possibility that Guciffer 2.0 is hacking anyone who downloads this alleged information?

SilverRhino's picture

Doesn't work that way.    

Now, logging IP addresses?   A distinct possibility

Everyone knows you don't store all the dirt on the hackable computer ...

Since the Clinton Foundation is like Jesus is to the poor, they can jusy post all their files and truly humble, wretched cynics like myself.

Good replacement. Donna really knows how to throw off leaks. Deny they came from your servers and that they are fictitious lists. She knows the NSA and FBI will not prosecute the Clintons. All this time we thought the foundation was a personal money laundering slush fund for the Clintons. Turns out it's a slush fund for the deep state. Thus it will be protected, much like the poppy fields in Afghanistan.

I can't help but wonder: are the Clinton Foundatiaon crooks planning to "reach out" to the big banks and demand even more of their TARP skim?

Surprise me it would not.

I don't think there was ever a doubt about a description of "BRAZEN" They knew they would never be prosecuted and they never will.

@"Using TARP money to make political contributions?" ..
if you check with a lawyer you might find it is actually
perfectly "legal". the lobbyists aren't just
fooling around in d.c.. either way, no appointed director
of the f.b.i. or head of the justice department could
conceive of prosecuting such an unprecedented case.
that is what they say on the streets/airwaves. the identity
of the next potus will be significant, the problem seems
to be it will be determined regardless of the voting or
any other means of populous input. this, is all a show.
a production. all politics is a production. the economy
and finance, money, it is all a production. there are actors
and directors and producers and owners; there are even
writers to make the words come out and be broadcast to
maximize the impact. what was that 500 million to produce
fake videos of isis story? show time, what a drag.
