It turns out Bernie Sanders supporters were not paranoid. The Hillary Clinton machine, which dominates the Democratic National Committee, never had any intention of allowing a fair primary contest. The race was fixed.
We already knew this but the treasure trove of 20,000 internal emails from within the DNC that were freshly document-dumped by Wikileaks shows just how determined the Clintonistas were to rig the primary process.
As CNN reports today:
The revelation threatened to shatter the uneasy peace between the Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders camps and supporters days before the Democratic convention kicks off next week.
The leaks, from January 2015 to May 2016, feature Democratic staffers debating everything from how to deal with challenging media requests to coordinating the committee’s message with other powerful interests in Washington.
The emails were leaked from the accounts of seven DNC officials, Wikileaks said. CNN has not independently established the emails’ authenticity.
DNC officials threatened to out Sanders as an atheist to hurt his candidacy in believer-rich Kentucky and West Virginia.
One problem: Sanders, unlike most of his fellow Marxists, isn’t an atheist. He is a Jew who has made statements indicating he is religious and spiritual and that these things are important to him.
Donald Trump seized this “I told you so” moment.
On Twitter he crowed:
Leaked e-mails of DNC show plans to destroy Bernie Sanders. Mock his heritage and much more. On-line from Wikileakes [sic], really vicious. RIGGED
