Rand Paul: Possible That Leaked DNC Emails Were Given to WikiLeaks By Insider

Published

In an appearance on Fox & Friends on Wednesday morning, Senator Rand Paul floated the possibility that the Democratic National Committee emails were leaked to WikiLeaks by an insider, rather than “the Russians.”

It has long been speculated that murdered DNC data analyst Seth Rich was behind the leaked emails.

When asked by Ainsley Earhardt for his reaction to the news that a lawyer for the Clinton campaign and the DNC had funded the infamous Fusion GPS dossier on Trump, Paul laughed.

“It amazes me for a year the Democrats have been whining, whining, and whining saying they lost because of the Russians. It looks like it’s their subterfuge, their ideas, they’re buying the dossier,” Paul stated.

Paul then went on to bravely mention the “rumors” that the leaked emails came from the Democrats.

“Also, you know there are rumors the leaks that went to Wikileaks from all of Clinton emails came from the Democrats as well.  So it’s kind of funny, everything they blamed on Republicans it looks like they were the ones responsible for,” Paul asserted.

In audio files previously released by Big League Politics, Pulitzer Prize winning investigative journalist Seymour Hersh asserted that Rich had contacted WikiLeaks with sample emails from the leak, claiming to have seen an FBI document that backed up his belief.

“There are no DNC or Podesta emails that exist beyond May 21 or 22, last email from either one of those groups. What the report says is that some time in late Spring… he makes contact with WikiLeaks, that’s in his computer,” Hersh says in the recording. “Anyway, they found what he had done is that he had submitted a series of documents — of emails, of juicy emails, from the DNC.”

Hersh additionally accused the Obama administration of fabricating the Russian hacking narrative, as people like John Brennan and James Clapper have motivation for wanting Hillary Clinton to win the election over Donald Trump.

“Anyways, Wikileaks got access, and before he was killed- I can tell you right now Brennan is an asshole. Uh, I’ve known all these people for years. Clapper is sort of a better guy but not rocket scientist, the NSA guy’s a fucking moron, and they don’t- you know the trouble with all of those guys is that the only way they’re going to make it to a board or two and get hired by (?) and get some fat cat contracts is if Hillary stayed in. With Trump they’re gone, they’re done, they’re going to live on their pension, they’re not going to make it. And I gotta tell you guys, they don’t want to live on their pension, they want to be on boards,” Hersh says. A full transcript of the audio was posted to Reddit by a dedicated user.

Rich was shot in the back in the early morning hours of July 10, 2016, near his home while he was on the phone with his girlfriend — 12 days before the publication of the DNC emails by WikiLeaks. The police initially ruled that it was a botched robbery — but his wallet, watch, and necklace were still on his person when he was discovered by police.

Though Assange has infamously expressed interest in Rich, he has always maintained that WikiLeaks will never name a source. WikiLeaks has offered a $20,000 reward for Rich’s murderer however, and has retweeted articles that asserted he was their source without providing any additional comment.

Democrat Mayoral Candidate in Chicago Hands Out Cash to Potential Voters

Published

on

A candidate for mayor of Chicago tried out a new campaign tactic on Sunday that will likely be very popular among potential voters, handing out cash at a church event.

“An aide to Wilson said the businessman gave away $300,000 to 2,000 people through the Dr. Willie Wilson Foundation, a 501(c)(3),” according to local WGN-TV. ‘Such organizations are tax-exempt, must not be organized for the benefit of private interests and are restricted in how much political activities they can conduct. Wilson says he organized the giveaway to assist homeowners who are struggling to pay their property tax bills.”

Willie Wilson is a Chicago businessman and former mayoral and presidential candidate. Wilson insisted the event was “not campaign related.”

“My wife and I have been blessed by God to be able to get a few of the material things out of life and so it’s up to us to now continually to share back with all of you all and others,” Wilson said.

State Rep. David McSweeney blasted Wilson on Twitter.

“Check this out if you wonder why Illinois politicians are often a national joke,” he said. “How can Willie Wilson, a candidate for Mayor of Chicago, literally hand out CASH at a public event? This is so wrong!”

But F. Scott Winslow, Wilson’s campaign spokesman, had a different take entirely, saying that the event was “absolutely not” a campaign event.

“While he happens to be a candidate, he’s been a philanthropist for 30 years,” Winslow said.

Oddly enough, there are no other records of Wilson handing out cash at a church function. Surely it is coincidental.

Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner, a Republican who is currently seeking re-election, was also at the church function, and took some time to bash Chicago’s exhorbitant property tax.

“You pay the highest property taxes in America here in Chicago and the South Side and the south suburbs,” he said. “This is wrong. The system is broken and I’m trying to fix it.”
