Hypocritical essay calls out 'secret money' and blames Trump

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has condemned the use of “secret money” in politics in a seemingly hypocritical essay, mainly because she has concealed the identities of her own secret donors.

“We need to overturn Citizens United and get secret money out of our politics,” Clinton writes in a new afterword to her book, published in the Atlantic. 

Strangely enough, Clinton claims int he essay that “American democracy is in crisis,” and then predictably goes on to blame President Donald Trump and Republican donors.

“Over many years, our defenses were worn down by a small group of right-wing billionaires—people like the Mercer family and Charles and David Koch—who spent a lot of time and money building an alternative reality where science is denied, lies masquerade as truth, and paranoia flourishes,” Clinton writes.

According to The DC: Because Clinton registered Onward Together as a 501(c)4 “social welfare” organization, she’s not required to disclose its donors to the public.

Clinton could still voluntarily reveal the identity of Onward Together’s donors, but has not done so.

Clinton’s reliance on dark money makes for a stark contrast with her rhetoric on the 2016 campaign trail, where she frequently criticized the influence of dark money groups like the one she now runs.

In the final presidential debate, Clinton promised to nominate Supreme Court justices 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.”

Onward Together began soliciting donations immediately upon its launch.

The group partnered up with a number of left-wing organizations, including anti-Trump group Indivisible — whose leadership includes several former Clinton staffers — and Color of Change, a group supported by left-wing billionaire George Soros.
