Since WikiLeaks released nearly 20,000 hacked Democrat National Committee emails Friday, much of the focus has been on revelations surrounding the DNC’s overt rigging of the Democrat primaries in favor of Hillary Clinton — just confirming, really, of what most of us already knew. And in contrast to what happened to Hillary Clinton over her own email scandal, the fallout for Debbie Wasserman Schultz has been swift. (Naturally, Hillary claimed she knew nothing of what was going on.)
But with nearly 20,000 emails in just this latest drop, there’s much more still to learn about the corruption that is the Democrat party and Hillary Clinton herself. In the latest episode, we learn just how party officials appear to have been playing a bit of quid pro quo with big donors.
As The Daily Caller reports:
Democratic National Committee documents recently released by WikiLeaks include spreadsheets and emails that appear to show party officials planning which donors and prominent fundraisers to provide with appointments to federal boards and commissions.
The documents, which were circulated among top DNC officials in April, could raise legal questions for the party, says Ken Boehm, the chairman of the National Legal and Policy Center, a government watchdog group.
“The disclosed DNC emails sure look like the potential Clinton Administration has intertwined the appointments to federal government boards and commissions with the political and fund raising operations of the Democratic Party,” Boehm told The Daily Caller.
“That is unethical, if not illegal.”
The records, which WikiLeaks released along with nearly 20,000 hacked DNC emails and other documents on Friday, also expose one of the Beltway’s worst kept secrets: that wealthy politicos can often buy their way to presidential appointments.

Of course, we already know that Hillary Clinton has experience doling out appointments to donors who seem to have absolutely no business in the position. Like her rewarding a major Clinton Foundation donor with a position on an intelligence board — one involving tactical nuclear weapons and on other crucial arms control issues — despite having no relevant experience.
And speaking of the Clinton Foundation, the leaked DNC emails don’t even cover what might have been promised to those donors from a Hillary Clinton presidency. Gosh, wonder what the Saudi Arabian government might be angling for; one would think they can claim some sort of dibs, given how much they’ve donated.
