Democratic party establishment marred with corruption and deceit. —>
Wikileaks’ most recent string of newly released DNC email chains prove the Democratic establishment rigged the primary to favor former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over Senator Bernie Sanders.
The leaks revealed that party insiders plotted to smear Sanders by colluding with mainstream media outlets like CNN and the AP to manipulate public perception of the Vermont senator. In addition, DNC officials who were supposed to remain impartial during the process strategized with the Clinton campaign on how to attack both Sanders and Trump.
In one email, DNC CFO Brad Marshal corresponded with a Clinton confidante on how to use Sanders’ religion against him, claiming that the senator’s “Jewish heritage” could hurt his image in states like Kentucky and West Virginia.
The leaks will cast a dark cloud over the Democratic National Convention in Philadephia next week in which party chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz has already been pulled from speaking as a result of the controversy.
It appears that Republican nominee Donald Trump was right (again) about the “rigged” system seeing as party insiders actively subverted the Democratic process (irony alert) in order to hand the nomination to Crooked Hillary.
Read the full story from Zero Hedge:
There are three key findings to emerge from yesterday’s dump of leaked DNC emails released by Wikileaks:
-There had been a plot designed to smear Bernie Sanders and to hand the Democratic nomination to Hillary on a silver platter
-There has been repeated collusion between the DNC and the media
-There has been questionable fundraising for both Hillary Clinton and the DNC
First, a quick recap for those who missed the original report, yesterday Wikileaks released over 19,000 emails and more than 8,000 attachments from the Democratic National Committee. This is what the whistleblower organization reported:
WikiLeaks releases 19,252 emails and 8,034 attachments from the top of the US Democratic National Committee — part one of our new Hillary Leaks series. The leaks come from the accounts of seven key figures in the DNC: Communications Director Luis Miranda (10770 emails), National Finance Director Jordon Kaplan (3797 emails), Finance Chief of Staff Scott Comer (3095 emails), Finanace Director of Data & Strategic Initiatives Daniel Parrish (1472 emails), Finance Director Allen Zachary (1611 emails), Senior Advisor Andrew Wright (938 emails) and Northern California Finance Director Robert (Erik) Stowe (751 emails). The emails cover the period from January last year until 25 May this year.
Subsequently, the Romanian hacker known as Guccifer 2.0 (who has denied he works with the Russian government), who has already released hundreds of hacked DNC emails previously, told The Hill he leaked the documents to Wikileaks.
An initial read of the thousands of emails in the data dump reveals top officials at the Democratic National Committee privately plotting to undermine Bernie Sanders’s presidential campaign, confirming a long-running allegation by the Sanders campaign who has claimed that the DNC and Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz had tipped the scales in favor of Hillary Clinton during the party’s presidential primary. They also reveal instances of media collusion as well as various questionable instances of fundraising.
