Wikileaks Blows DNC Plot to Defeat Sanders Wide Open, Wasserman-Schultz: "He Isn't Going to be President."

Newly released emails from Wikileaks hacked by the Romanian Hacker "Guccifer 2.0" show an active conspiracy by top officials of the DNC to undermine Bernie Sanders' candidacy by multiple means. One involves planting questioners in Kentucky and West Virginia to ask Sanders about his religion, and suggest painting him as an atheist in the heavily conservative Christian states.

The email dated May 5, 2016 with the subject line "no shit," from DNC CFO Brad Marshall, says:

“It might may no difference, but for KY and WVA can we get someone to ask his belief. Does he believe in a God. He had skated on saying he has a Jewish heritage. I think I read he is an atheist. This could make several points difference with my peeps. My Southern Baptist peeps would draw a big difference between a Jew and an atheist,”

In another, DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz seems to reveal inside knowledge of the primaries as if they were a foregone conclusion. Using the email address, Wasserman-Schultz wrote, in reference to promise by Sanders to oust her as head of the DNC if he won:

"He isn't going to be president."

The emails were published on July 23. The next day, a Sunday, Wasserman-Schultz announced she would step down as chairwoman at the end of the Democratic convention this week.

The DNC, the Democratic National Committee, is charged in its bylaws with running an "impartial" primary in which qualified voters in the states are allowed to chose whom the presidential nominee of their party will be. The Democratic primary season was marred by a litany of charges of election fraud which benefitted Hillary Clinton, some of which sparked state or federal investigations, and numerous pending lawsuits.

How Bernie Sanders Really Won the 2016 Democratic Primary

Wasserman's remark "He isn't going to be president" is the clearest indication yet that the DNC never had any intention whatsoever of running fair primaries. Sanders supporters have presented evidence and indicators of fraud almost since the beginning of the season, including major waves of voter suppression in Arizona, New York, and California affecting into the millions of voters,

Many Sanders supporters are demanding Sanders withdraw his endorsement of Clinton in the wake of the proven political double-cross. Wikileaks promised further installments of DNC email dumps as the convention progresses.

The impact on American politics of foreign access to highly sensitive emails is an ironic reminder to some of the dangers of running email through unsecured networks, as the FBI acknowledged had taken place under the administration of Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State, saying Clinton was "extremely careless."

Meanwhile, Clinton and Trump remain neck-and-neck in polls, at times falling behind, while the latest polls taken of Trump versus Sanders show Sanders beating Trump consistently by a wide margin.

So DWS said Sanders isn't going to be president? Wow...let's put the nails in her hands and feet and get ready to crucify her.

Never mind that the Berniecrats have done worse by burning the US and Israeli flag outside the DNC convention site. But, the Bernie or Bust nuts can do and say whatever THEY please because as we all know, Hating Hillary, Bashing Hillary, Criticizing Hillary and generally trying to ram Sanders down our throats is perfectly dandy, right?

DWS is entitled to her opinion and if saying Sanders won't be president is cause for a prison sentence, we are going to need more prisons built because millions of others also knew from the start of the primaries Sanders "won't be president."

As it stands right now, Sanders isn't even welcome in the Dem party thanks to his big mouth bad mouthing the Dems and trying to reinvent the party. But after all, as we all know, Sanders being the all knowing, fount of Wisdom and Superiority, has ALL the answers..Too bad he had them for 44 years and they ALL went no where.

In your little boy dreams Schwartz. Hillary will be president whether men like you whine and complain till your brains atrophy.

Not to burst your childish dream bubble, but not a single one of the DNC emails I read mentioned Sanders except for the one that stated the sender thought Sanders was what the rest of us think, "Too old and too controlling."

Read the email you BS artist. Or stop posting lies. So while Bernie demanded DWS be removed as DNC chairman, a lot of good it did him or you. She has already been given another position in the DNC.

Men like you need professional mental help. You live in a world of your making and then think you can coerce others to live in the same mental derangement you do. Time for you to stop living off your parents and get a life.

Seems as if the entire list of Round #1 people from the DNC are gone or on their way out. The DNC and Clinton spend all their time trying to blame the Russians, hoping that will overshadow the contents of the e-mails. Can't wait for round #2 to be released.

Gee that's funny....Wikileaks? You mean Julian Assange? The guy who had to flee Sweden due to his being indicted for rape?

Sorry if you Berniecrats are too lame to know when to call it a day but here is some news for you.

Hillary won by over 2 million more popular primary votes. I know here in NJ, Hillary was ahead of Trump who was way ahead of Sanders.

But do keep up your lies and distortions while I hand you some facts you can't admit:

1. Sanders refused to proved ANY of his tax records other than the one from 2013 which he knew would substantiate his covert lie that he is the "poorest" Senator.

2. Sanders the phony he is pretends he hates Wall Street all while he collects ROI on 38 Dominion Oil and Fracking investments.

3. Sanders never dares publicly admit he owns 3 homes in Vermont, which are priced over $600,000. Still think Mr. Victim Card is poor?

4. Sanders wife Brainey Janey was ousted from her job as president of Burlington College because she sold college property without the college executive board's permission. She sold said property to a Catholic diocese in VT who owed money for lawsuits for pedophilia.

Sanders is a thug. He is no better than Cheney and just as pro gun as Cheney,.
