FLASHBACK: SEC Chief Gary Gensler Was Hillary Clinton’s Campaign CFO During Russia-gate Payments…

A major story is breaking today that involves Securities and Exchange Commission head Gary Gensler.

In fact, just like all the good stories this one was hidden in plain sight but is now being uncovered and revisisted.

The revolving door of Wall Street / Government can lead to some lucrative opportunities if you’re in the club, but as we’re now learning it can also put you in some very compromising situations.

ProCoinNews does not take a side in politics, other than we vote with our wallets and we vote for those people who are pro-crypto and pro-American innovation.

But we’re also not shy about reporting on a story when it touches politics because we have a mission here to report the truth wherever we find it.

And the truth has found Gary Gensler.

After leaving as Chair of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, it appears Gensler found his way to a cozy position as CFO of the Hillary Clinton 2016 Campaign…and the money was flowing free and fast according to many reports.

There appears to be an all-out MSM blackout of this story by any media source even slightly left of John F. Kennedy, but it appears based on recent court filings by John Durham that not only is Hillary’s campaign accused of spying on both the Trump Campaign and the Trump Presidency (is that treason?) but also of creating and spreading the discredited Russia-gate story.

Take a look:

Her campaign’s CFO at the time?

Gary Gensler.

Why is this important?

Because many of the allegations made by Durham include the intentional payments of money to promulgate the Russia-gate hoax, and it appears to be inconceivable that those could not have flown through Gensler.

As I said above: UH-OH!

The story is breaking wide open today with The Gateway Pundit leading the charge in connecting the dots:

Let’s go back in time to 2016 and this article from CNN praising Gensler’s abilities on the Hillary campaign:

Hillary Clinton’s campaign will add to its top ranks a man who’s known for being tough on Wall Street.

Gary Gensler, the former chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, will serve as the Clinton campaign’s chief financial officer, Bloomberg reported.

Gensler would bring a wealth of knowledge about the financial industry, as well as the federal agencies that regulate it, to the newly launched campaign.

He was chairman of the CFTC, the government agency that oversees the derivatives markets, from 2009 to 2014. He previously served in senior Treasury Department roles under President Bill Clinton, and prior to joining the Clinton administration worked at Goldman Sachs for almost 20 years.

Bart Chilton, a former CFTC commissioner who served alongside Gensler, told CNN that Gensler was an “effective leader” at the agency, adept at juggling the demands of working with lawmakers on Capitol Hill and regulating the financial sector.

“Secretary Clinton will be well served by his financial and strategic acumen,” Chilton said. “I know he’s deeply committed to the Secretary, and to her public policy agenda.”

Talk about things that didn’t age well.

And from Politico:

It might seem surprising that Hillary Clinton picked a former Goldman Sachs guy to manage her campaign finances as CFO and advise her on economic policy, considering all the criticism she gets over her Wall Street ties. But Gary Gensler is no ordinary veteran of the “Government Sachs” cabal. By his own admission, Gensler underwent a major transformation from a Goldman Sachs executive and Rubinite (part of the group of loyalists around former Treasury Secretary and Goldman chief Robert Rubin who deregulated Wall Street in the 1990s) to a true believer in regulation following the 2008 financial crash. “All of us that were involved at the time, and certainly myself, should have done more to protect the American public through aggressive regulation,” he said shortly before he became chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission in the Obama administration, where he would earn praise from liberals for cracking down on derivatives trading.

From his Bloomberg profile (see the part in bold):

Over tea at Hillary Clinton’s Washington home in late 2014, Elizabeth Warren warned her host that when it comes to Wall Street, what mattered most was the people Clinton surrounded herself with. Months later, as Clinton launched her presidential campaign, Gary Gensler, who had been a Goldman Sachs banker before he became a senior policy aide and Bob Rubin protégé during the deregulatory years of B

The deeper explanation is that Gensler is a financial-policy unicorn—a deregulator turned reformer. As head of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, Gensler became known as one of President Barack Obama’s toughest regulators, willing to buck his friends and former colleagues to tighten rules on the $400 trillion swaps market following the 2008 crisis. His name became an expletive to many on Wa

Even for a former regulator, it’s not the most glamorous role; every day, he’s given a big stack of checks to sign. He insisted on using strict accounting practices so that the campaign wouldn’t fall into debt by leaving costs off its balance sheet until bills are paid, as campaigns often do. He hopes to end the campaign in November with nothing left in the bank and no debt, either. Obama 2012 end

The Gateway Pundit summed things up nicely with this:

The Hillary campaign took over the DNC’s financials and then hid how the money was being spent by funneling it through its attorney Elias and Perkins Coie. Millions were passed onto its attorneys where they used this money for activities being investigated by the Durham investigation now. The Clinton campaign paid Perkins Coie $5.6 million in legal fees from June 2015 to December 2016, according to campaign finance records, and the DNC paid the firm $3.6 million.

We now know the money that Hillary’s team paid entities to link Trump to Russia.

This all happened while Marc Elias was general counsel and Gary Gensler was CFO of the Hillary campaign. What are the odds these two individuals knew everything that was going on?
