An extraordinary secret collusion between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump has been revealed in a Democratic National Committee file released by Guccifer 2.0, the hacker who claimed responsibility for breaching the DNC database.
The file released on the hacker’s webpage on Tuesday morning reveals that ‘Donald J. Trump’ donated between $100,000 and $250,000 to Hillary Clinton during this presidential campaign, a figure that becomes even more extraordinary considering reports Trump’s own campaign funds havedwindled to $1.3 million.
It is well known that Trump has donated money to Democrats in the past, with Ted Cruz raising this issue during the Republican primary debates. However public disclosure files reveal that these were token donations that amounted to a total of $6,400. Trump himself dismissed them, saying he has donated to Democrats and Republicans in the past: ‘Before this I was a businessman. I give to everybody.’
However the new information about Trump secretly donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to his likely presidential rival raises different questions and lends credibility to the persistent rumor in political circles that Trump is a plant designed to clear the path for a Hillary Clinton presidency.
In an interview with The National Review, Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D-OH) talks about rumors she’s heard that Trump is a secret Clinton plant — and she can’t dismiss the idea entirely.
