If I didn’t know better, I’d assume democrats were purposely trying to get caught doing illegal activities.
Then again, they may just be that dumb.
Take California’s governor, and possible 2024 democrat nominee for president, Gavin Newsom.
Newsom has made a habit of lying and getting into legal trouble.
He might be in deeper water than even he can tread though.
Newsom recently praised the Biden Administration for the Silicon Valley Bank bailout.
What Newsom failed to mention was his own personal ties to the bank.
Three of his wine companies are held by Silicon Valley Bank.
But wait, there’s more.
Newsom’s wife, Jennifer Siebel, also has close professional ties to the bank.
This isn’t a good look Gavin…

Here’s the inside scoop from our friends at the New York Post:
Gavin Newsom hailed the Biden administration’s decision to federally insure all depositors of Silicon Valley Bank — without disclosing the fact that the failed lender counts the California governor as a client.
Newsom, the Democrat governor, owns three Northern California wineries that are listed on the bank’s website as clients, according to The Intercept news site.
A longtime former aide of Newsom told The Intercept that the governor also maintained a personal account with the Santa Clara-based bank, which was put into a receivership by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.
A spokesperson for the governor, Nathan Click, told The Intercept: “Governor Newsom’s business and financial holdings are held and managed by a blind trust, as they have been since he was first elected governor in 2018.”
The Intercept cited bank records which list clients including CADE, Odette, and PlumpJack — all of which are owned by Newsom.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom has had personal accounts with Silicon Valley Bank for years; three of his wineries are clients.

According to the Intercept, Newsom’s wife also has professional ties to the bank:
Newsom also didn’t mention his wife Jennifer Siebel’s professional ties to the bank. In 2021, Silicon Valley Bank gave $100,000 to the charity founded by Siebel, the California Partners Project, at the request of Newsom. John China, president of SVB Capital and responsible for SVB’s funds management, is himself a founding member of the California Partners Project’s board of directors.
Newsom added on Monday that he had been in close contact with the administration about SVB. “Over the last 48 hours, I have been in touch with the highest levels of leadership at the White House and Treasury,” Newsom said of SVB’s collapse in a statement released on Saturday. Asked about the nature of the interactions, the governor’s deputy communications director Brandon Richards did not respond.
NEWSOM, A MULTIMILLIONAIRE who was a businessman before becoming a politician, has been dogged for years with ethics questions about his corporate holdings. When asked during his 2018 campaign for governor if he would sell his companies, Newsom reportedly replied, “These are my babies, my life, my family. I can’t do that. I can’t sell them.”
Newsom likes to ignore important details that could incriminate him.
I’m not sure why he thought nobody would notice though…
Newsom Failed to Disclose His Personal Ties with Silicon Valley Bank as He Lobbied For Bailout https://t.co/6kWQz08I9s

The Gateway Pundit has more details:
California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) failed to disclose he was a client of Silicon Valley Bank as he lobbied the White House and Treasury for a bailout.
“Over the last 48 hours, I have been in touch with the highest levels of leadership at the White House and Treasury. Everyone is working with FDIC to stabilize the situation as quickly as possible, to protect jobs, people’s livelihoods, and the entire innovation ecosystem that has served as a tent pole for our economy,” Gavin Newsom said in a statement on Saturday.
A day later Newsom cheered on the Biden Regime for bailing out SVB depositors with more than the $250,000 limit backed by the FDIC.
Why did Gavin Newsom praise the Silicon Valley Bank bailout?
Because he was a client.
