@AnPoland and the Bradley Foundation

On 29 October 2016, Anonymous Poland (@AnPoland) claimed to have hacked and downloaded e-files from the Bradley Foundation (BF).  A letter was posted by numerous Anonymous groups which presented a letter explaining a donation of $150 million USD made by the Rothschild Assets Management Company, through the BF, to the Hillary Clinton Campaign.  BF, a traditional conservative foundation, is currently claiming that the posted letter is a fake.  This information is being provided for your situational awareness.
