Shrouded in Darkness, Just Four People Gave $30 Million to Pro-Trump Group in 2016

Jon Queally, staff writer

Among those involved with a shadowy campaign group that brought together mega-rich donors with a vehicle that allowed them to anonymously provide extremely large checks to the Donald Trump campaign during the 2016 election, were just eleven individuals who gave more than $1 million at a time, including gifts from just four people that totaled $30 million.

All together now:

Money is NOT speech.
Corporations are NOT people.
Capitalism is NOT democracy.

Sing another chorus.

Shouldn’t be hard to figure out most of the “who”, find a picture of Trumps inauguration, they are the people seated around Trump.

As I recall, Bernie’s contributors averaged $27 during his campaign, making these four Trump conspirators cum contributors 250,000 times more effective. One dollar, one vote…

Sorry, I would prefer to see an across the board listing of these things. The other side of the govérnment should be given equal treatment. And coverage of officials at all levels. Targeting one single player in a game where most of the players on all of the teams have this issue seems in itself a problem.
You often hear of third world country leaders being deposed over corruption, when the next leader up faces the same issues.
