Jane Mayer on Robert Mercer & the Dark Money Behind Trump and Bannon’s Radical Vision


NERMEEN SHAIKH: We turn now to look at the
man who is said to have out-Koched the Koch brothers in the 2016 election. His name is Robert Mercer, a secretive billionaire
hedge-fund tycoon who, along with his daughter Rebekah, is credited by many with playing
an instrumental role in Donald Trump’s election. Trump’s chief strategist, Steve Bannon,
said, quote, “The Mercers laid the groundwork for the Trump revolution. Irrefutably, when you look at donors during
the past four years, they have had the single biggest impact of anybody, including the Kochs.” Before Bannon and Kellyanne Conway joined
the Trump campaign, both worked closely with the Mercers. The Mercers bankrolled Bannon’s Breitbart
News, as well as some of Bannon’s film projects. Conway ran a super PAC created by the Mercers
to initially back the candidacy of Ted Cruz. The Mercers also invested in a data mining
firm called Cambridge Analytica, which claims it has psychological profiles of over 200
million American voters. The firm was hired by the Trump campaign to
help target its message to potential voters. While the Mercers have helped reshape the
American political landscape, their work has all been done from the shadows. They don’t speak to the media and rarely
even speak in public. AMY GOODMAN: During the entire presidential
campaign, they released just two statements. One was a defense of Donald Trump shortly
after the leak of the 2005 Access Hollywood tape that showed Trump boasting about sexually
assaulting women. The Mercers wrote, quote, “We are completely
indifferent to Mr. Trump’s locker room braggadocio.” They went on to write, “America is finally
fed up and disgusted with its political elite. Trump is channeling this disgust and those
among the political elite who quake before the boombox of media blather do not appreciate
the apocalyptic choice America faces on November 8th. We have a country to save and there is only
one person who can save it. We, and Americans across the country and around
the world, stand steadfastly behind Donald J Trump.” Those were the words of Robert and Rebekah
Mercer one month before Trump won the election. Since the election, Rebekah Mercer joined
the Trump transition team, and Robert Mercer threw a victory party of sorts at his Long
Island estate. It was a hero and villain’s costume party. Kellyanne Conway showed up as Superwoman. Donald Trump showed up as himself. To talk more about the Mercers, we’re joined
now by Jane Mayer, staff writer at The New Yorker, her latest piece headlined “The Reclusive
Hedge-Fund Tycoon Behind the Trump Presidency: How Robert Mercer exploited America’s populist
insurgency.” Jane is also author of Dark Money: The Hidden
History of the Billionaires Behind the Rise of the Radical Right, which just came out
in paperback. Jane Mayer, welcome back to Democracy Now! The beginning of the piece talks about a former
colleague of Mercer’s saying, “In my view, Trump wouldn’t be president if not for Bob.” Explain who Robert Mercer is. JANE MAYER: Well, he’s a, as you’ve mentioned,
a New York hedge-fund tycoon. He’s a computer scientist, a kind of a math
genius and uber-nerd, who figured out how to game the stocks and bonds and commodities
markets by using math. He runs something that’s kind of like a
quant fund in Long Island, and it’s called Renaissance Technologies. He’s the co-CEO. And it just mints money. So he’s enormously wealthy. He earns at least $135 million a year, according
to Institutional Investor, probably more. And what he’s done is he has tried to take
this fortune and reshape, first, the Republican Party and, then, America, along his own lines. His ideology is extreme. He’s way far on the right. He hates government. Kind of—according to another colleague,
David Magerman, at Renaissance Technologies, Bob Mercer wants to shrink the government
down to the size of a pinhead. He has contempt for social services and for
the people who need social services. And so, he has been a power behind the scenes
in Trump’s campaign. He kind of rescued Trump’s campaign in the
end, he and his daughter. And, you know, most people think Trump was
the candidate who did it on his own, had his own fortune, and he often boasted that he
needed no help and had no strings attached, and he was going to sort of throw out corruption. And, in fact, there was somebody behind the
scenes who helped enormously with him. AMY GOODMAN: Talk about that moment, when
you talk about them saving Donald Trump, which has become particularly relevant today. This was the time that Manafort was forced
out as the campaign manager for Donald Trump. The campaign was in disarray. He was being forced out because of his ties
to Ukraine and Russia and the money that was being revealed that he might or might not
have taken. So, take it from there. JANE MAYER: Well, right. And this was—really, Trump’s campaign
was—it was floundering. It was in August, and there was headline after
headline that was suggesting that Paul Manafort, who had been the campaign manager, had really
nefarious ties to the Ukrainian oligarchs and pro-Putin forces. And it was embarrassing. And eventually, after a couple days of these
headlines, he was forced to step down. And the campaign was, you know, spinning in
a kind of a downward spiral, when, at a fundraiser out in Long Island, at Woody Johnson’s house—he’s
the man who owns the Jets—Rebekah Mercer, the daughter of this hedge-fund tycoon, Bob
Mercer, sort of cornered Trump and said, “You know, we’d like to give money to your campaign. We’ll back you, but you’ve got to try
to, you know, stabilize it.” And basically, she said, “And I’ve got just
the people for you to do the job.” And they were political operatives who the
Mercer family had been funding for a couple of years, the main one being Steve Bannon,
who is now playing the role to Trump—he’s the political strategist for Trump—that’s
the role he played for the Mercer family prior to doing it for Trump. So, these are operatives who are very close
to this one mega-donor. The other was Kellyanne Conway, who had been
running this superfund, as you mentioned in your introduction, for the Cruz campaign,
that was filled with the money from the Mercers. And so she became the campaign manager. Bannon became the campaign chairman. And a third person, David Bossie, whose organization
Citizens United was also very heavily backed by the Mercer family, he became the deputy
campaign manager. So, basically, as Trump’s campaign is rescued
by this gang, they encircle Trump. And since then, they’ve also encircled Trump’s
White House and become very key to him. And they are the Mercers’ people. NERMEEN SHAIKH: Well, Jane Mayer, Rebekah
Mercer, whom you mentioned, is known—described as “the first lady of the alt-right.” Now, you tried to get Rebekah and Robert Mercer
to speak to you for this piece. What response did you get? JANE MAYER: Oh, I mean, it was hopeless, clearly,
from the start. They have nothing but disdain for, you know,
the mainstream media. Robert Mercer barely speaks even to people
who he works with and who know him. I mean, he’s so silent that he has said
often that he—or to a colleague, he said once—I should correct that—that he much
prefers the company of cats to humans. He goes through whole meetings, whole dinners,
without uttering a word. He never speaks to the media. He’s given, I think, one interview I know
of, to a book author, and who described him as having the demeanor of an icy cold poker
player. His daughter, Rebekah Mercer, who’s 43 and
has also worked at the family’s hedge fund a little bit and is a graduate of Stanford,
she’s a little more outspoken. She has been in fundraising meetings on the
right. She has spoken up—and very loudly and irately,
actually. But she doesn’t speak to the press. And so, I had very little hope that they would. AMY GOODMAN: Can you talk about when they
first met, the Mercers, Robert and Rebekah Mercer, first met Andrew Breitbart, and what
that progression was and how they came to be linked up with Bannon? JANE MAYER: Well, sure. The Mercer family, Robert and his daughter
Rebekah, met Andrew Breitbart back—I think it was late 2011 or early 2012, speaking at
a conference of the Club for Growth, another right-wing group. And they were completely taken with Andrew
Breitbart. He was pretty much the opposite kind of character
from Bob Mercer. Breitbart was outspoken and gleefully provocative
and loved to offend people and use vulgar language just to catch their attention. And you’ve got this kind of tight-lipped
hedge-fund man from the far right who just fell for Breitbart big time. And he—mostly what he was captivated by,
I think, was Breitbart’s vision, which was, “We’re going to”—he said, “Conservatives
can never win until we basically take on the mainstream media and build up our own source
of information.” He was talking about declaring information
warfare in this country on fact-based reporting and substituting it with their own vision. And what he needed, Breitbart, at that point,
was money. He needed money to set up Breitbart News,
which was only just sort of a couple of bloggers at that point. AMY GOODMAN: And talk about Breitbart News,
about what the alt-right represented, whether we’re talking about anti-Semitism or white
supremacy, and why they were attracted to this. JANE MAYER: Well, I mean, you know, it changed. What happened was—I mean, it started as
a—Andrew Breitbart had helped The Huffington Post get set up. And his idea was that he was going to launch
The Huffington Post of the right. And so, he was setting it up, and his very
close friend was Steve Bannon. And Bannon had been in investment banking. So Bannon got the Mercers to put $10 million
into turning this venture into something that was really going to pack a punch. And they were just about to launch it in a
big day—big way. They were a few days away from it, when Andrew
Breitbart died. That was in March of 2012. He was only 43, and he had a sudden massive
heart attack. And so, this operation was just about to go
big. It was leaderless. And that’s when Steve Bannon stepped in
and became the head of Breitbart News. And in Bannon’s hands, it became a force
of economic nationalism and, in some people’s view, white supremacism. It ran, you know, a regular feature on black
crime. It hosted and pretty much launched the career
of Milo Yiannopoulos, who’s sort of infamous for his kind of juvenile attacks on women
and immigrants and God knows what. You know, just it became, as Bannon had said,
a platform for the alt-right, meaning the alternative to the old right, a new right
that was far more angry and aggressive about others, people who were not just kind of the
white sort of conservatives like themselves. AMY GOODMAN: So they made a $10 million investment
in Breitbart. They owned it— JANE MAYER: A 10 million. AMY GOODMAN: —co-owned it. JANE MAYER: They became the sponsors, really,
behind it. And it’s interesting to me that—one of
the things I learned was that Rebekah Mercer, this heiress, who’s had no experience in
politics, is so immersed in running Breitbart News at this point. I mean, she—her family is the money, big
money, behind it. That she reads every story, I’m told, and
flyspecks, you know, typos and grammar and all that kind of thing. I mean, there is a force behind Breitbart
News that people don’t realize, and it’s the Mercer family. So, anyway, it became very important, increasingly,
on the fringe of conservative politics, because it pushed the conservatives in this country
towards this economic nationalism, nativism, anti-immigration, pro-harsh borders, anti-free
trade, protectionist. And it spoke the language of populism, but
right-wing populism. NERMEEN SHAIKH: And, Jane Mayer, I mean, as
you’ve said, one of the things that has made the Mercers so successful in their political
interventions is precisely this, the way in which they’ve invested in an alternative
media and information network, of which Breitbart is, of course, a very significant part. But can you also talk about the Government
Accountability Institute, which you discuss in your piece? JANE MAYER: Sure. I mean, and this was, you know, very much
a design. You’ve got this family with all the money
in the world, wanting to change American politics. And they hadn’t been very effective in their
earlier efforts at this, until they joined forces with Steve Bannon, who’s a very sort
of farsighted strategist who kind of sees the big picture and understands politics. And so, he very much focused their efforts
on this information warfare, first with Breitbart, $10 million into that. And then, after 2012, when the Mercers were
very disappointed that Obama got re-elected, at Bannon’s direction, they started to fund
a brand-new organization called the Government Accountability Institute. It’s based in Tallahassee. It’s small. It’s really a platform for one major figure,
Peter Schweizer, who is a conservative kind of investigative reporter. And what they did with this organization,
which the Mercers poured millions of dollars into, was they aimed to kind of create the—drive
the political narrative in the 2016 campaign. They created a book called Clinton Cash, which
was a compendium of all the kinds of corruption allegations against the Clintons. And they aimed to get it into the mainstream
media, where it would pretty much frame the picture of Hillary Clinton as a corrupt person
who couldn’t be trusted. And their hope was that they would mainstream
this information that they dug up. It was like an opposition research organization,
sort of masked as a charity and nonprofit. And they took this book, Clinton Cash, gave
it to The New York Times exclusively, early, and the Times then ran with a story out of
it, that they said they corroborated. But they ran with it, nonetheless, on their
front page, which just launched this whole narrative of Hillary Clinton as corrupt. And it just kept echoing and echoing through
the media after that. So, it was a real home run for them. A year later, they made a movie version of
it also, which they launched in Cannes. AMY GOODMAN: You’re talking about Peter
Schweizer and, as well, the Mercers. What about Cambridge Analytica, in addition
to the Government Accountability Institute? And also, the Mercers’ obsession with the
Clintons, the whole issue that you write about. JANE MAYER: Well, this is something that— AMY GOODMAN: They’re talking about they’re
murderers. JANE MAYER: I mean, really—I mean, one of
the—one of the challenges of writing about the Mercers, for me, was to figure out—OK,
so they’re big players. There are players in the Democratic Party
who put in tons of money, too. They’re not the only people who put money
into politics. But they’re maybe the most mysterious people
who put money into politics. Like nobody really knew what do they believe,
what’s driving them. And so, I was trying to figure that out. And what I finally was able to do what was
talk to partners and people they work with in business and people who’ve known them
a long time, who paint this picture of them as having these really peculiar beliefs, and
based on kind of strange far-right media. Among their beliefs are that—Bob Mercer
has spoken to at least three people who I interviewed, about how he is convinced that
the Clintons are murderers, literally, have murdered people. Now, you hear that on the fringes sometimes
when you interview people who are ignorant, but these are people who are powerful, well
educated and huge influences in the country. And Bob Mercer was convinced that the Clintons
are murderers. OK, so he’s driven by this just hatred of
the Clintons and, coming into 2016, is determined to try to stop Hillary Clinton, and looking
for a vehicle who would do that, who eventually becomes Trump. AMY GOODMAN: Jane Mayer, we’re going to
come back to this conversation. Jane Mayer is staff writer at The New Yorker. Her piece is “The Reclusive Hedge-Fund Tycoon
Behind the Trump Presidency: How Robert Mercer exploited America’s populist insurgency.” And her book is out in paperback, Dark Money:
The Hidden History of the Billionaires Behind the Rise of the Radical Right. There is so much to talk about. Stay with us.

    Shame on the anti-American Mercers. If you don't like the United States of America's government then move to Russia. You both can be Russian oligarchs. Go away. Leave America alone.

  14. Lynn Johnson says:

    So you hear about the daughter and daddy Mercer… where's the mother? Did they eat her?

  15. Stanley Tolle says:

    It's it's interesting that the Mercide's created Cambridge Analytica. According to this report, this organization had the profiles of 200 million Americans (including the 50 million from Face Book). I am fairly sure this information was shared with the Russians. This would explain the down loading of the voter registration rolls in the the battleground states by the Russian hackers. This would enable the targeting of information to influence voting for Trump and importantly not to vote at all for people who would likely vote for Hillary. Essentially the Russians would have the computer power to make the connections with the social data supplied by Analytica and the resources from their bot and troll army to launch the voter influence campaign.

    Because that is balanced journalism. Paint a propaganda picture, lady, to reinforce your victim mentality and demand for government salvation. What a bitter hag this Jane Mayer is. All 3 of these woman are hard to look at, much less listen to. #RepublicAlways

  21. Chester Micek says:

    It's clear that Trump can fool 35% of the people all of the time, but he can't fool 65% of the people anytime. For example, YouTube "Vincente Fox gives Trump the Finger". This exciting "made for YouTube Video" features an Ex-President of Mexico giving Trump the "Dirty Bird" and saying, "Mexico will not pay for that [email protected] wall". Then, YouTube "Trump' s Hotel is Mooned", and watch a crowd of Trump emoluments protesters drop their trousers and show their bare a$$es to a Trump property. Finally, YouTube the "Crime Scene" projections onto the main entrance of Trump's International Hotel in Washington, DC. An artist in a van is using a video projector to project signs like, "Pay Emoluments Here!", and "Pay Bribes Here" onto Trump's Hotel. The Youtube video is great because it shows tourists with cell phone cameras photographing that scene from the top of a double decker bus. If McConnell and Ryan won't do anything about Trump, artists and comedians will. Maybe they can laugh the buffoon who appointed Betsy Ross and Ronnie Johnston to high office out of the highest office in DC.

  22. A T says:

    Mercer could have never horded his fortune without the technological innovations came out of Silicon Valley and the universities across the US, of which immigrants played a significant contribution, and still are. The Mercer and Trumpists live in an isolated and small universe and at its core is evilness and psychological sickness.

  23. Leticia Villafranco says:

    What do you call it when everything intersects like that? The Bermuda triangle! Fuck the Mercers! One Million dollars!! We need to put these evil geniuses on a rocket and fly him, his daughter and his hairless cat into space!!!

  24. Theresa Hanley says:

    I can see that the Revolting Left Coast must take on this 'anti-fact-based reporting'. The 'fact-based reporting' that must be educated into and is required by a democratic population must be (along with our constitution) protected and defended. Dump TRump!

  25. marcelo murlo says:

    Another Fiction Scientist…!

  26. Allan Crow says:

    More than a year later…and with Cambridge Analytica now exposed…this is a way more serious than Russian meddling. Democracy in the USA is broken…it's been undermined from within. Serious campaign finance reform is needed.

  27. Openintelligence1 says:

    Swamp? In comparison, they are an open cesspit.

  28. Evan Herrera says:

    Trump can't even wipe his butt on his own. He's too ignorant. He won through Putin , Mercers, and the other corrupt billonares. Mercer you can hide but, at the end you will pay the price. Lock them up. Tratiors

  29. Triple Crown says:

  30. Terri Mabrey says:

    How dare these Mercer people have access to people's profiles!! Who the he'll are these bile people? They throw rocks and hide their hands. They believe they are above it all, when they will be placed in the box like the rest of us. Can't pay to avoid that, can they?
    So with Kelleanne remaining in the WH, the Mercers are in the WH!

    Citizens United must be overturned. It represents the biggest crime ever perpetrated on the American people. It was created by republicans and powerful corporations, for the sole purpose of finally controlling our government for their own financial gains, all while undermining the will of the people.

  69. Sandra Clark says:

    We know trump didn't do it on his own, we know he is a cheat and the the rich money mongers are cheats too. That why trump didn't get the black votes. You can read right through him and his whole mess in the Whitehouse. The mercers keep silent so they can do their dirt to America. Maybe one day their base will wake up when they find out the rich are not out to help them. They are out to keep all the money and wealth. I hope a storm come down and rain on their parade. Bring them down.
