Interim DNC Chair Donna Brazile spilled the beans about how the DNC helped Hillary to win the Party’s nomination, while quietly ousting the wildly popular Democrat-Socialist candidate, whose appeal was his promise to give free sh*t to almost every American. Like him or not, Bernie Sanders got the shaft from his own Party, as they rushed to put their full support behind Hillary, and her campaign that turned out to be a disaster.
After months of lying about passing debate questions to Hillary before the presidential debate that was hosted by her employer, CNN, the former DNC Chair Donna Brazile, finally came clean.
“Today’s a new day, however, and Donna Brazile has decided to emerge from the shadows to promote her new bombshell, tell-all book that is sure to ruffle a few feathers in the Democrat Party…
Her book is about the chaos at the DNC during the 2016 campaign. What emerges from the excerpt of a portion of her book that she revealed to Politico, is a picture of Brazile as a heroine (of course), Hillary Clinton as the villainess, Debbie Wasserman Schultz as incompetent and lazy, and Barack Obama as the unnamed cancer that ate away at the center of the party.
In her book, Brazile claims that Hillary ran the Party. Hillary used that debt to pick up power – they pledged to fill in the funding gap for the DNC so long as they got to run operations. Gary Gensler, CFO of the Hillary campaign, apparently “described the party as fully under the control of Hillary’s campaign, which seemed to confirm the suspicions of the Bernie camp. The campaign had the DNC on life support, giving it money every month to meet its basic expenses, while the campaign was using the party as a fund-raising clearinghouse.”
Hillary Essentially Laundered Campaign Money Through The DNC. Hillary raised an enormous amount of money for the DNC, but virtually all that money went to Hillary’s campaign. Less than half of 1 percent of all money Hillary raised from her fundraisers went to the states. Brazile explains:
When the Politico story described this arrangement as “essentially … money laundering” for the Clinton campaign, Hillary’s people were outraged at being accused of doing something shady. Bernie’s people were angry for their own reasons, saying this was part of a calculated strategy to throw the nomination to Hillary.
Brazile admits that the party ran as an adjunct to the Hillary campaign long before the primaries, meaning that Bernie was at a severe disadvantage.
Nevertheless, after Hillary and the DNC cheated Bernie out of the opportunity to become the Democrat Party’s presidential nominee, he behaved like a good little comrade and stood behind Hillary, in hopes of helping to push her over the finish line.
Bernie mysteriously purchased a beautiful new $600K home (to add to his collection of homes) on Lake Champlain, in Vermont, shortly after he conceded to Hillary.
The 76-year-old Socialist, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) hasn’t made it a secret that he’s planning to run again for President in 2020.
The DNC isn’t taking any chances on crazy Bernie getting any traction (or money) from their Party this time around, however. The DNC just announce a new rule that will keep Bernie at an arm’s length from the flailing Party. The real question is, is the DNC doing Bernie a favor, and will they regret their decision later?
Bid to block Bernie Sanders? DNC adopts rule change, wants only avowed Democrats to run
Fox News reports that the Democratic National Committee adopted a new rule Friday aimed at preventing non-Democrats, such as independent U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, from seeking the party’s 2020 presidential nomination, reports said.
The rule change, adopted at a DNC meeting in Providence, R.I., requires all candidates for the party’s nomination to “run and serve” as Democrats, Yahoo News reported.
Some supporters of Sanders — who caucuses with the Democrats despite declining to declare a party affiliation — say the move was motivated by “spite” after Sanders gave Hillary Clinton a run for her money during the Democratic primaries in 2016.

Sanders, who describes himself as a democratic socialist, ultimately lost the nomination to Clinton when superdelegates from states he won chose not to vote for him at the party’s 2016 convention in Philadelphia.
DNC Chairman Tom Perez on Tuesday floated a proposal to eliminate superdelegates on a presidential primary’s first voting ballot, the Washington Post reported. Party leaders would vote only if the contest required a second ballot.
“You had superdelegates voting for Hillary Clinton in states that I won pretty handsomely,” Sanders told Post this week. “And now there is agreement among Tom Perez and our people, and a lot of the Clinton people, to say we should reduce the number of superdelegates.”
Still, the rule change left some Sanders supporters puzzled as to why Democrats would want to make their party less inclusive.
“We just came off a devastating presidential loss in 2016,” Mark Longabaugh, a senior adviser to Sanders’ 2016 campaign, told Yahoo News. “It would seem to me the actual impetus would be to expand the Democratic Party. I, just for the life of me, don’t see any motivation for this beyond personal spite.”
