Biden Discloses List of Top Donors Including 8 Former US Ambassadors
The Epoch Times ^ | December 28, 2019 Updated: December 28, 2019 | ALLEN ZHONG

Former Vice President Joe Biden released a list of donors who have raised at least $25,000 for his 2020 presidential campaign, including eight former U.S. ambassadors that served either under the Obama or Clinton administration.

The long list of donors includes former U.S. Ambassadors to Belgium Denise Bauer and Alan Blinken, former U.S. Ambassador to Portugal Elizabeth Frawley Bagley, former U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Anthony Gardner, former U.S. Ambassador to New Zealand and Samoa Mark Gilbert, former U.S. Ambassador to Romania Mark Gitenstein, former U.S. Ambassador to Ireland Kevin O’Malley, and former Ambassador to Spain and Andorra James Costos.

According to the Council on Foreign Relations, Biden has an extensive foreign policy background, having served on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee for three decades. He also played a key role in the foreign policy on Afghanistan, Iraq, Ukraine and other conflict areas while vice president under former President Barrack Obama.

Of the 259 donors on the list, 57 are from California and 38 are from New York.

The list also includes three U.S. senators and two congressmembers, including Sens. Bob Casey (D-Pa.), Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), Chris Coons (D-Del.), Massachusetts State Rep. Claire Cronin, and Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-La.), who also co-chairs Biden’s campaign.

Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont is also on the list.

Jeffrey Katzenberg, a Hollywood producer who gave more than $2 million to Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign, and hedge fund manager Eric Mindich are also included among the top donors to Biden’s campaign.

The release comes amid a dispute over big-money donors between two other 2020 Democratic front runners, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

Biden just voted as a surrogate for his donors.

Check the list of Delaware Banks.

He doesn’t know crap. He was on the wrong side of every single issue, but the right side for his pocketbook.

Biden plays poor, and the Media plays along.

Yup. How about a FISA warrant on Biden. With Hunter’s shenanigans, I bet a forensic accounting audit would turn up a lot of graft and corruption.

It worked for O’Malley the first time. So he’s going for it again:

Excerpt:
Mr O’Malley contributed $4,600 to Mr Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, according to the US Federal Election Commission.

Mr O’Malley, if his nomination is confirmed by the Democratic-led Senate, will take up the role vacated by businessman Dan Rooney, owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers American football team, who stepped down as ambassador in 2012.

Usually rich leftist Democrat lightweights sent to 2nd rate or almost irrelevant countries. Andorra? Most people never heard of it and don’t know where it is located.

New Zealand, now run by mini-Marxists and fools. Can’t force them out. Getting a feeling NZ is being set up by the Red Chinese for a re-run of the Soviet KGB’s “peace campaign” and “no nukes” campaign of the 1980’s that were highly successful in getting NZ to ban any US ships from entering their waters/ports if they were carrying nuclear weapons (DUH).

Exposed by the terrific NZ researcher Trevor Loudon (www.keywiki.org). He’s now in the US fighting Soros, Working Families Party (Marxist), Steven Phillips, Black Marxist/capitalist and funder of many far-left political groups in Virginia and elsewhere.

Just thought I’d add a little spice to this article.
