All the way back in the year 2016, something extraordinary took place, and it will forever taint the way that Americans view the Democratic Party.
As the party and the Democratic National Convention were struggling both in the polls and in the purse, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton saw an opening. Her party’s struggles were her in. Clinton would go on to provide substantial financial assistance to the DNC in return for an easy path to the nomination over rival Bernie Sanders.
In other words, Clinton rigged the 2016 Democratic primaries, and the entire scheme was exposed by none other than Julian Assange of Wikileaks.
Now, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy believes that it’s possible that Bernie is going to be cheated again. And what’s even more bizarre is the possibility that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s reluctance to hand the articles of impeachment over to the Senate may have played a major part in this con.
McCarthy suggested during an appearance on Sunday Morning Futures that the speaker’s decision to withhold the articles of impeachment from the Senate may have been more strategic than Democrats have indicated, involving the Democrat primary race.
If Pelosi releases the articles this week, as she has indicated to her caucus, the Senate trial’s kickoff would coincide with the upcoming Iowa caucus, which will compromise several senators’ ability to campaign in the Hawkeye State, thereby giving a clear advantage to more “moderate” candidates like Joe Biden (D) and Pete Buttigieg (D).
Remember what happened in the last nomination process, where the DNC chairman, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, had to resign the night before the nomination convention started because they had found out they had cheated Senator Bernie Sanders from the opportunity to become the nominee.
“The Iowa caucus is on February third,” he continued. “Bernie Sanders is in first place and what this does is benefit Joe Biden.”
Unfortunately for Democrats who attempt to disprove this theory, the 2016 election still looms large in the minds of American voters, and knowing that the Democratic Party had previously seen no issue with cheating their constituents doesn’t instill much confidence in the process moving forward.
