Sorry Bernie Bros. New leaked documents from the Democratic National Committee proved the fix was in for Hillary Clinton from the beginning, and your candidate never had a chance.
A Russian hacker who identifies himself as Guccifer 2.0 leaked official DNC documents showing that party officials and elites in the media were collaborating with the Hillary Clinton campaign dating back to May 26, 2015 — the same day Bernie Sanders officially launched his bid for the Democratic nomination.
The document from May 26 details how the DNC would work hand-in-hand with the mainstream media to discredit any Republican nominee. They also detail how they planned on playing up Clinton’s positives while downplaying her negatives.
“Reporter Outreach: Working through the DNC and others, we should use background briefings, prep with reporters for interviews with GOP candidates, off-the-record conversations and oppo pitches to help pitch stories with no fingerprints and utilize reporters to drive a message,” the DNC document stated.
“Our goals in the coming months will be to frame the Republican field and the eventual nominee early and to provide a contrast between the GOP field and HRC,” the document continued. “Over the long-term, these efforts will be aimed at getting us the best match-up in the general election, and weakening the eventual nominee through the course of the primary.”
Bernie Sanders and Martin O’Malley are not mentioned in the document, and despite the fact that the DNC stated that they were not backing a candidate during the primary process, they were openly working with Clinton.
“Use specific hits to muddy the waters around ethics, transparency, and campaign finance attacks on HRC,” the document continued.
Guccifer 2.0 says he downloaded thousands of documents on the DNC server, as well as Hillary Clinton’s private server while she served as Secretary of State.
The hacktivist turned over Clinton’s private e-mails to Julian Assange of Wikileaks, who told Truthdig that the revelations in those documents should be enough to indict the former First Lady and will also damage the reputation of the Clinton Foundation.
