Bernie Sanders supporters worst nightmare came true when the DNC had to admit in a court of law that they DID rig the election and were shocked to find out they felt they had the right!
And the court agreed!
Now the DNC might have to pay restitution of millions of dollars to Bernie Sanders supporters who got cheated!
In June 2016, a class action lawsuit was filed against the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz for violating the DNC Charter by rigging the Democratic presidential primaries for Hillary Clinton against Bernie Sanders. Even former Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid admitted in July 2016, ““I knew—everybody knew—that this was not a fair deal.” He added adding that Debbie Wasserman Schultz should have resigned much sooner than she did. The lawsuit was filed to push the DNC to admit their wrongdoing and provide Bernie Sanders supporters, who supported him financially with millions of dollars in campaign contributions, with restitution for being cheated.
When Harry Reid admits it was not fair and throws Debbie Wasserman Shultz under the bus, you know things have gotten bad.
The lawsuit might not go anywhere. While the truth was forced out, the court actually agreed that it was the right of the DNC to rig the primary.
“The Court must now decide whether Plaintiffs have suffered a concrete injury particularized to them, or one certainly impending, that is traceable to the DNC and its former chair’s conduct—the keys to entering federal court. The Court holds that they have not.” The court added that it did not consider this within its jurisdiction. “Federal courts are courts of limited jurisdiction, possessing ‘only that power authorized by Constitution and statute.’”
“The Court thus assumes that the DNC and Wasserman Schultz preferred Hillary Clinton as the Democratic candidate for president over Bernie Sanders or any other Democratic candidate. It assumes that they stockpiled information useful to the Clinton campaign. It assumes that they devoted their resources to assist Clinton in securing the party’s nomination and opposing other Democratic candidates. And it assumes that they engaged in these surreptitious acts while publically proclaiming they were completely neutral, fair, and impartial. This Order therefore concerns only technical matters of pleading and subject-matter jurisdiction.”
Surreptitious means that they kept it all a secret because it would not be approved of.
Think about that folks. That means that it was a cover up! This is how the DNC works. It goes back to the old “ends justifies the means” mentality!
As long as they get their way, how they get there does not matter.
Well, this time, it backfired. Polls show that Bernie Sanders had an excellent opportunity to beat Donald Trump. This was the election that left it open for a solid liberal or conservative to win. Hillary and Trump both had incredibly low approval. If Cruz had run against Hillary, he would have won. Had Bernie ran against Trump, he would have won.
Had Bernie ran against Cruz, we would have had a debate of ideology that would have meant America won!
The DNC cheats!
