"CIA Democrat" politician who was selected a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum in 2016.

Seth Wilbur Moulton is a American politician. Having close connections to the military-intelligence apparatus, he has been U.S. representative for Massachusetts's 6th congressional district since 2015, where his support network helped getting other "CIA Democrats" into office. He attempted to run for president in 2020 but failed due to lack of popular recognition or support.

He was selected a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum in 2016.

Early life, education, and commission

Moulton was born on October 24, 1978, in Salem, Massachusetts, to Lynn Alice (née Meader), a secretary, and Wilbur Thomas Moulton, Jr., a real estate attorney.[1][2][3][1] He graduated from the exclusive Phillips Academy in 1997,[4] and attended Harvard College, where he got bachelor's degree in physics in 2001.[5]

Moulton joined the Marine Corps after graduation, a few months before the September 11 attacks.[6] He attended the Officer Candidate School in Quantico, Virginia, and graduated in 2002 with the rank of second lieutenant.[1][5]

Military career

During the 2003 invasion of Iraq, Moulton led one of the first infantry platoons to enterBaghdad.

Moulton was assigned to "help" reorganize Iraqi media.[7]

He was hand-selected to work directly for General David Petraeus as a liaison to senior Iraqi military and political leaders south of Baghdad.[8]

"CIA Democrat"

In 2014, Moulton unexpectedly beat John Tierney, a labor-friendly, nine-term incumbent whose reputation was tarnished by a local scandal involving his wife and brother-in-law, in the 6th Congressional District, north of Boston. Among his backers were retired General Stanley McChrystal, former commander of US forces in Afghanistan. Another Moulton supporter is retired Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, General David Petraeus.[9]

WSWS analyzed his career. in 2019: "Moulton’s indifference to popular support is not accidental. He is a leading representative of a new breed of Democratic Party politicians who openly seek their constituencies in, and are drawn from, the ranks of the military-intelligence apparatus", also called "CIA Democrats". Moulton heads the Serve America Political Action Committee (PAC), which since the 2018 elections has funneled millions of dollars in corporate funds to Democratic candidates with backgrounds in the spy agencies, the military or the State Department.[10]

The WSWS found that 11 CIA Democrats were elected to Congress in 2018, each with backing from Moulton’s Serve America.[11]
