Former Clinton Foundation CEO Eric Braverman is missing and rumors are surfacing that he may be hiding from the Clinton death machine due to a recent WikiLeaked email.
Recent questions surround Braverman’s sudden disappearance:
The story is unconfirmed, but also eerily missing is a rebuke by Braverman himself. With the level of sunlight cast upon his being missing, a simple “here I am” could quiet the waters – but there has been none.
Snopes.com, a waaaaaay left-leaning “fact-checking” website, immediately called the Braverman asylum story “FALSE,” but with no proof (yeah, go figure.)
Snopes’ ‘debunked’ the story because one of the many news outlets reporting it was a conspiracy site. Snopes did not produce proof that Eric is not at the Russian Embassy in New York City or that Braverman isn’t hiding or even that they have proof that the former CEO of the Clinton foundation is healthy.
On 24 October 2016, the conspiracy-mongering web site WhatDoesItMean.com published an articlereporting that former Clinton Foundation CEO Eric Braverman had sought asylum in Russia for reasons presumably related to knowledge he gained working for that charitable organization (purportedly supportedby an e-mail WikiLeaks released in October 2016):
Where is the comment from the Russian Embassy flatly denying that Eric is on the grounds or has requested asylum?
Where is the in-person interview where Eric says “this is all a misunderstanding, I was in Tahiti on vacation?”
So the question remains, where in the world is Eric Braverman?
While snopes.com failed to entirely kill the missing Braverman story, it’s also true that the story lacks any confirmation. The Russians aren’t saying that Eric’s with them, and there is no one telling us exactly where he is.
What’s left is, why would he hide or otherwise get hidden? First, some background:
Braverman had been put in place as CEO by Chelsea Clinton among concerns of rampant ethical issues within the foundation.
Eric was pushed out of the Clinton foundation as long-time Clinton loyalists found his anti-corruption changes to be unappealing, unrewarding, and unwanted.
Next – the motive:
First, Joe Scarborough tweets a National Journal article that reveals how to reveal the corruption inside the Clinton Foundation.

Then, the Clinton campaign starts a witch hunt for a mole that Podesta ultimately identifies as the now missing Mr. Braverman:
Neera Tanden warns John Podesta to “keep tabs on Doug Band” who she assumed was the insider who told NBC to “follow the money and find the real HRC scandal.” Interestingly, John Podesta writes back quickly to identify the real source as former Clinton Foundation CEO Eric Braverman which seems to be shocking to Tanden who replies simply, “Holy Moses.”
So the supposed motive is that his being a mole was exposed on WikiLeaks and fearing death or some other disagreeable outcome, he chose to run, hide, seek asylum or … something.
So that leads back to the original question – Where is Eric Braverman?
Eric wasn’t a prolific user of Twitter, so the fact that his last tweet was on October 12th is of little note, but a fact none-the-less.
Braverman’s Facebook account is almost empty so that’s not much of an indicator either.
So all that are left are questions:
- Why hasn’t Eric spoken up, shown up or otherwise notified anyone that he is ok?
- Why hasn’t his family spoken up – don’t they know where he is?
- Why isn’t there a confirmation or denial from the Russian embassy? Lack of either raises more questions than it answers.
