The Top Donor to #PrioritiesUSA in 2016 was Paloma Partners, at the tune of $21 MILLION. opensecrets.org/outsidespendin…
Paloma Partners lead is Donald Sussman. According to information leaked to the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, Donald Sussman is a director of Simply Radiant Ltd., a company based in the British Virgin Islands. offshoreleaks.icij.org/nodes/123528
Sussman’s firm, Paloma Partners, is a Simply Radiant shareholder, as are Paloma subsidiaries Golden Mountain Partners and Sunrise Partners, ICIJ data show.

Paul Wolansky, a former managing director at the Paloma Partners, is listed as a Simply Radiant director.
Harry S. Campbell is also listed as a director. He was previously a director of Cathay Investment Fund Ltd., in which Paloma is a major shareholder. moneyextra.uk-wire.com/Article.aspx?i…
Sussman faced scrutiny over his apparent efforts to claim tax breaks in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Despite that controversy and his ties to #TrustNet’s network of offshore corporate entities, he was one of the most prolific supporters of groups backing Clinton’s 2016 candidacy.
FEC records show Sussman donating millions to pro-Clinton Super PACs including:

• Priorities USA Action
• Women Vote
• Emily’s List
• Correct the Record
Sussman is also a board member of the Center for American Progress, the pro-Clinton group that pretended to heavily criticize corporations and individuals implicated in #ICIJ leaks.

NOTE: He’s also affiliated with the Democracy Alliance donor club, which helps finance CAP.
Other donors to Clinton and those groups have also been implicated in the #PanamaPapers and related leaks. Jim Simons, another hedge fund manager and seven-figure #PrioritiesUSA donor, has benefitted from the types of tax schemes identified by the leaks.

Becoming a Word Sleuth: Anonymity works sometimes, but forensic linguists are a pesky lot. An English professor @Vassar (linguistics sleuth) correctly exposed @Newsweek’s Joe Klein as the anonymous author of a novel on Bill Clinton's first run. npr.org/2018/09/09/646…
ID’ing Kaczynski as the author of an anonymous manifesto helped lead to his conviction.

Fitzgerald and Leonard worked on the JonBenét Ramsey case, too, helping in 2006 to rule out someone who falsely confessed to killing her in 1996.

Most of forensic linguistics isn't that high profile, though. It's painstaking work, done outside the limelight in front of a computer.

Amen.

“A lot of people can be amateur linguists. But it really takes someone studying the field, knowing the field, having a true appreciation of language usage, that I believe makes the best forensic linguist.“
“It's not a part-time gig. It has to be taken as a full-time, serious profession.”
