Today’s highly interesting read (11/03/17): Bernie Sanders got gypped

Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders greet the audience before the Democratic presidential primary debate hosted by MSNBC at the University of New Hampshire on Feb. 4, 2016, in Durham, N.H.

If you were one of the many who thought the Democrat Party presidential race in 2016 was crooked, you were right.

In a bombshell, former Democratic National Committee interim chair Donna Brazile breaks her silence in a new book, “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns that Put Donald Trump in the White House.” Brazile writes the DNC was rigged in Clinton’s favor because her campaign was largely financing the party early on in the presidential election.

Excerpts from the book are in Politico:

If the fight had been fair, one campaign would not have control of the party before the voters had decided which one they wanted to lead. This was not a criminal act, but as I saw it, it compromised the party’s integrity.

I had to keep my promise to Bernie. I was in agony as I dialed him. Keeping this secret was against everything that I stood for, all that I valued as a woman and as a public servant.

“Hello, senator. I’ve completed my review of the DNC and I did find the cancer,” I said. “But I will not kill the patient.”
