Ex-Hillary Clinton staffer launches anti-Donald Trump website

A former Hillary Clinton staffer with a taste for revenge has launched a website dedicated to documenting President-elect Donald Trump’s alleged corruption scandals.

And the site’s name is sure to turn some heads.

Matt Ortega, Clinton’s former digital director for communications, recently unveiled Corrupt.AF — with the acronym coyly standing for “as f–k” — to highlight what he perceives as the “great threat” that Trump poses to America.

“There are so many problems with Trump’s presidency for those who were targets of his campaign, for the very concept of freedom, and democracy itself,” Ortega told the Daily News Friday evening.

The as of yet barebones site features a wide photograph of the President-elect flanked by bold white letters spelling out the words “Donald Trump Is Corrupt AF.” Below the up-close picture a caption reads “Donald Trump continues to prove himself to be an authoritarian kleptocrat that’s corrupt AF — and he’s only getting started.”

corrupt-agentOrtega prides himself on having launched the site completely on his own and out of his own pocket. He tells The News that he hopes the site will serve as an encyclopedia of Trump’s deep-seated conflicts of interests — of which he claims there are numerous.

For now, the site features a library of links to news stories reporting on the President-elect’s controversies. Some recent examples include a story about Trump’s decision to stay on as the executive producer of “The Celebrity Apprentice” while serving as president; and another one on Trump’s biggest donors, including CEO Andrew Puzder who has since been tapped to become labor secretary.

“It is clear through the actions of those seeking to influence his administration that they will use his business empire to curry favor,” Ortega said. “That’s a direct threat. One we, as Americans, believe you’d only see overseas, not here at home, and yet, here we are.”

During the campaign season, Trump frequently painted Clinton as corrupt and “crooked,” outraging many Democrats who alleged that there was not enough spotlight on the Republican candidate’s purported crookedness.

But since winning the election, Trump has come under intense scrutiny over how he will avoid conflicts of interests while dealing with his vast business empire as president.
