      The DNC does appear to have been for Clinton but I think this is played up a bit much. She still did win most of the primaries. One can make a case for the issue with super delegates but that is not something that can be manipulated easily. Clinton would have always had an intrinsic advantage with that one.

    Not played up at all. There was direct collusion with the woman in charge of the DNC. So bad in fact she had to be removed. Actually recorded discussions on how could the DNC help Bernie be defeated.


This is the best summary on it I can find...

I am unaware of everything in the case. However, the fact is that Bernie still lost. One can say the DNC help had a fair bit to do with that, but at the same time I am not sure that most of the Democratic voters just do what the DNC say either.

    Not only this...the replacement woman in charge immediately colluded AGAIN with the Clinton campaign...providing the questions to their head to head discussions planned many days in advance. Giving Hillary complete knowledge of what would be asked well ahead of time.


I do not view this one as all that scandalous. Trump did. I am not alright with it, but it is hardly the first time. Most debates are frankly a joke in our political system.

Anyone worth their salt knows the questions going to be asked a mile away for the most part. Particularly with the presidential debates. I find that debates are really a very poor format for determining what a candidate knows or does not know. It is typically more a contrast of styles or appearances more than anything else.

    The Republican party is corrupt as heck...but the fact that this seems to be continually swept under the carpet or minimalized by the left just boggles the mind.


Does it matter much at the moment? The various scandals of the Trump transition team, campaign and administration are more paramount to government function, ethics and power in the US than worrying about a lost candidate.

The DNC should do soul searching and strive to be more fair in the future. However, from what I have heard the fundraising thing was given to both candidates. Clinton got some additional things. That is not ok, but even if those did not happen, it is unlikely to have affected the result.
