Hillary Clinton was easily one of the worst presidential candidates to ever run for office. Not only is she undeniably incompetent, she’s also completely corrupt. While working as a government official, she got rich doing a massive amount of favors for people. On top of that, she’s also a massive hypocrite.
For example, she recently created a dark money group despite opposing them while running for office. Her group plans on partnering with others like Color of Change, a well-known far-left organization funded by George Soros. Together, they plan on resisting Trump.
According to reports, Clinton recently launched a new organization called Onward Together. The group, which is registered as a 501(c)4, is specifically designed to resist Trump. Their website encourages people to get involved in the campaign to fight Trump and asks for donations. “In recent months, we’ve seen what’s possible when people stand up for a fairer, big-hearted, more inclusive America. Chip in today to help Onward Together support the people and organizations championing the vision that earned nearly 66 million votes in the last election,” says their website.
Unfortunately, there’s a huge problem with 501(c)4’s like Clinton’s group. Specifically, these “social welfare” organizations are not required by law to disclose their donors to the public. Unlike other nonprofit groups, which publicize who gives them money, 501(c)4s donors are not required to disclose that information in order to make a donation. This means that someone can use the organization to get rich without having to let others know exactly who’s paying them. In politics, this is a huge problem. If people are being secretly funded by others, they could essentially have conflicts of interest and pass laws favoring those who are paying them.
With this in mind, it’s now clear why Clinton would want to create Onward Together. With the group, her wealthy donors can secretly give massive amounts of money to her to spend on her political agenda. This money would be virtually untraceable, providing her with ample coverage to engage in corrupt activity.
Ironically, while campaigning against Trump, she publicly spoke out against 501(c)4s. Specifically, during the last presidential debate, she claimed that she would nominate a Supreme Court Justice who would “say no to Citizens United, a decision that has undermined the election system in our country because of the way it permits dark, unaccountable money to come into our electoral system.” Now, she’s doing exactly what she spoke out against, proving she’s a hypocrite. She never cared about the issues she was campaigning on. She was simply saying what other people wanted to hear so she could win. If she truly cared about “dark money,” then she wouldn’t have created a “dark money” group.
What’s worse, it appears like her group is unsurprisingly being supported by far-left billionaire George Soros. Color of Change will reportedly be partnering with Clinton’s group. Thanks to that, Soros can now give millions to Clinton without having to disclose it, making the risk for unethical conduct high.
Clinton is not the only Democrat working with Soros to undermine Trump. Amelia Warren Tyagi, the sister of Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA), is also being funded by Soros. Specifically, she’s being paid to head Demos, a New York liberal special interest group designed to fight against voter ID laws and voter registration audits.
To be clear, there’s nothing wrong with spending money for political purposes. After all, money is speech and speech should not be limited when it comes to politics. However, that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be apparent exactly who is giving the money. Transparency is one of the best ways to ensure others will be held accountable for their actions. It gives voters a better idea of who exactly their congressmen are representing. Without it, groups like Clinton’s could easily be used for unethical purposes.
Clinton must not be allowed to continue to use nonprofits to get rich. Republicans lawmakers need to look into these groups and make changes so people like Clinton can’t take advantage of them. If people want to donate to a political nonprofit that’s fine, but it should be made public. If not, dark money could be used to greatly influence future elections.
