In less than a half hour, two Vice Presidential candidates that 40% of the American public can’t even name will face of head to head.
On the Republican side, we have Indiana Governor Mike Pence, whose Trump’s more conservative and level headed counterpart. Hillary’s VP Tim Kaine was formally the Governor of Virginia. We’ve heard surprisingly little about the VP candidates this cycle, and few know what to expect during this debate. Personally, I don’t think the two will attack eachother personally, they’ll attack the other as a representative of their respective Presidential candidate. Pence will have to defend Trump, and vice versa.
When it comes to attacking Hillary, Pence got some ammunition right before the debate started. As the Political Insider reported:
Hacker Guccifer 2.0 isn’t messing around, and he just dropped the biggest hack ever… just before the Vice Presidential debate!
The hack involves details from the Clinton Foundation. And it’s the worst news for Hillary Clinton.
Part of the details includes how much Democrats were able to funnel from financial institution from TARP bailouts back into Demorat PACs and SuperPacs.
This is a bombshell!
One spreadsheet appears to detail how much banks have given to lawmakers on the House Financial Services Committee. Another document shows how much banks gave to Democratic lawmakers and how much those banks received from the 2008 bailout bill to stabilize the financial sector, known as the Troubled Asset Relief Program, or TARP.
“It looks like big banks and corporations agreed to donate to the Democrats a certain percentage of the allocated TARP funds,” wrote Guccifer 2.0.
Some cybersecurity experts believe Guccifer 2.0 is an invented identity that the Russian government is using to release files it obtains through hacking.

Via the Guccifer 2.0 site:
Many of you have been waiting for this, some even asked me to do it.
So, this is the moment. I hacked the Clinton Foundation server and downloaded hundreds of thousands of docs and donors’ databases.
Hillary Clinton and her staff don’t even bother about the information security. It was just a matter of time to gain access to the Clinton Foundation server.
Here’s the contents of one of the folders that I got from there.

As the commentary above argues, it looks like those very same politicians who supported the bank bailouts were generously rewarded through campaign contributions from those very same banks.
Bernie Sanders drew attention to Hillary’s egregious speaking fees she’s charged speaking before the financial industry, and she’s clearly in bed with them. Just look at whose donating to Trump vs. Hillary on OpenSecrets and you’ll see that Wall Street is her biggest donor.
They call her crooked for a reason – but there’s a bright side. Democrats can no longer pretend to be the party of the average Joe. They’re always been the Party of the elites, and it’s about time people started waking up.
