DNC corruption

Wow. Just wow... I just learned that the Clinton campaign basically bought and ran the DNC. No wonder Bernie never had a chance.

Sad

Between her machine and the superdelegates, Bernie had no chance. None.

Wow, imagine that.
Some of us have been saying for years the whole system (dems & republican) is corrupt and this is why 61 million supported Trump.
Unfortunately not one of them will ever be brought up on charges, let all be convicted because every last one of them is corrupt.

Huh, yet the left , particularly the left partisan media, continually crucified moderates like Romney. This is why you got Trump. Boil in the stew you (the left) contributed to

this is correct....only democrats can be moderates....Ted Kennedy for instance...was a moderate....pretty sure Nancy Pelosi fancies herself "moderate"...probably Schumer too


lincoln chaffee would be a great example of a moderate republican if such a thing exists

theses parties are private organizations and can do as they please ( like the super superdelegates or RNC tried to changes the rules because thought Trump wouldn't win ) few laws govern them because theses to parties make the Laws . and they have made 3rd parties an impossible choice.. Both parities are equally bad around theses issue.. to argue anything else makes you an enabler

Party 1st people 2nd

Why would the Democratic party allow a non-Democrat like Bernie win the nomination? He's an Independent - back then you could see that coming a mile away.

So it didn't happen? Isn't this why Deb Wasserman Shultz resigned, there were emails that as head of the DNC, she had her thumb on the scales for Hilary?

Brazile is a maniac. She was fired from the Dukakis campaign (she was deputy director) for telling lies about George Bush. That didn't stop her from getting a job at CNN and working for CNN, where she made sure Hilary got debate questions ahead of time (after she denied doing it to Megyn Kelly). An absolute maniac.

the question is did they break the law? Did hillary get more vote than the Bern in the primaries .. thats really the only thing that matters

this is a concern is for Dems not republicans.. but the right has turned the issue into a distraction piece .. not sure how it effects them?

I don't see a crime. That doesn't mean there wasn't an ethical violation.

There's no shortage of scumbags in the GOP. Nor is there any shortage of scumbaggery among Bill and Hilary. He's a serial predator of women, and Hilary slut shamed his victims on national TV. These are deeply immoral people. I still think he was a decent president (I voted for him once), but a really unethical pair. You can be a good president and a rotten person.

Of course it's an issue for the democrats. However, the republicans would be idiots if they didn't use this for their advantage.

IF the GOP passes tax reform, and IF that reform puts more money in the pockets of a lot of lower-middle class Americans (two big if's at this point, but doubling the standard deduction should help the people who rely on the standard deduction), November 2018 could be a bloodbath. I could not have handpicked the 33 Senators up for election, in a way that's lining up better for the GOP. Many more democrats are up for election than republicans, and many democrats that are up, are from states that Trump won big. It could not be a more challenging situation for the democrats. The GOP Congress is almost useless, but even they are smart enough to see that they need to do SOMETHING popular before the midterms. Cutting taxes, and helping the stock market (by slashing the corporate tax rate) could be very problematic for the democrats. Or it could blow up in the face of the GOP. We'll see.

No - it is a concern for all Americans - and should be evaluated on the merits, not the bias - would be no different if the fix was in on an R (there may be a federal investigation on that whodathunk).

Imagine the uproar if the Yankees were found to have bankrolled the national baseball league and were paying the umpires. Because thatís the same thing...
