How Hillary & DNC using loopholes for legal money laundering



Cenk Uygur/The Young Turks

So you wonder why all of the superdelegates went to Hillary Clinton? Well, this is among the reasons. One of the reasons is they're like, "Hey, listen, we'll get some of our billionaire donors to throw some money in your direction too--whether it's the state parties or the DNC; and then you guys can use that for your own re-election."

"Hmmm... Some of the bribes come to me? OK, YES, OF COURSE! I'M WITH HILLARY!"

Or, at a bare minumum, "Nah, I'm not gonna to say who I'm with." -- That's the best case scenario.

Most of them just raise their hands right away: "Hillary! Hillary! I'm with Hillary! Gimme the money, gimme the money, gimme the money!"

Gee, I wonder why these politicians decided they were going to support Hillary Clinton instead of Bernie Sanders. It's because Bernie Sanders forgot to bribe them! (laughs) Silly Sanders!

And that's how we wash the money. And then by the time you hand it off to Hillary Clinton, it's all clean. That's called money laundering. Now, it's all legal because they legalize bribery, they legalize money laundering--as long as it goes to politicians, you can bribe them all they want.

1. We could offer the alternative of refusing that $, if they insist on backing Clinton despite votes.

They should prove it's not about the money.

7. They're trying to pass laws to regulate information on the internet.

So I mean, hopefully, we can always search and find information and that'll never be taken away. Like some countries have.
