Goldman-Sachs weighs in on the 2016 election by banning contributions to Trump.
Goldman Sachs bans donations to Trump
Sep 8th 2016 9:48AM

Quote: Wall Street giant Goldman Sachs is barring its top employees from contributing to certain political campaigns including donating money to Donald Trump's presidential campaign, but not Hillary Clinton's. Politico first reported that the rule, effective Sept. 1st, bans donations to politicians running for state or local offices, as well as donations to state officials who are seeking federal office from the firm's 467 partners. Meaning, no donations for the Trump-Pence ticket, since Pence is the current governor of Indiana.

It also means there are no donating restrictions for the Clinton-Kaine ticket. Tim Kaine is a Senator for Virginia and, in Goldman's rule, is not considered a local official. The firm wrote in its memo to employees, "all failures to pre-clear political activities as outlined below are taken seriously and violations may result in disciplinary action." Trump's team is expected to question the timing of this.
"All that is necessary for tyranny to succeed is for good men to do nothing." (unknown)

James Tracy: "There is sometimes an undue amount of paranoia among some conspiracy researchers that can contribute to flawed observations and analysis."

Gary Cornwell (Dept. Chief Counsel HSCA): "A fact merely marks the point at which we have agreed to let investigation cease."

Alan Ford: "Just because you believe it, that doesn't make it so."
