Clinton funded by Wall Street

Hillary Clinton frames herself as the working class candidate of choice, opposed to Wall Street interests. She must be courting voters without access to even partially-informative content, since her largest campaign donors are Wall Street interests and hedge-fund managers, whilst the Clintons have made millions in speaking fees before them and even repressive governments like Saudi Arabia.

According to Open Secrets and the Panama Papers, the following are among her top campaign contributors and Clinton foundation donors: JP Morgan, JPMorgan-Chase, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, Ronald Caline Chagoury, George Soros, Donald S. Sussman, David E. Shaw, Paloma Partners, DLA Piper, Frank Giustra, Blackstone Group, Morgan Stanley, Lehman Brothers, Denyse Rich, Akin Gump Strauss & Hauer, Greenberg Traurig, Paul, Weiss et al. law firm and Perkins-Coie.

How can Clinton criticize Donald Trump’s tax proposals when her own campaign is lavishly funded by Wall Street interests operating known tax and transparency-evasion schemes? Must “deplorables” like myself also assume such funding bears no relation to her policy proposals, let alone her practical ethics?

I did my research and am proudly voting for Donald Trump.
