There’s a playbook used by both parties when one of their own gets accused of wrongdoing. Unless there’s clear proof, they protect their allies at all costs. The word of one person is not usually considered enough to turn on the accused. However, this situation involves Hillary Clinton. Many in her party have been waiting for a smoking gun so they could pounce on her and purge her as the “spiritual” leader of the Democratic Party.
Donna Brazile’s scathing piece yesterday demonstrated that the Democratic Party is falling apart. Many Democrats, particularly those who supported Senator Bernie Sanders for the nomination, are quickly turning against Hillary. One such person is Representative Tulsi Gabbard from Hawaii. She laid it all out nicely as she described the 2016 primary was “rigged.”
“Today we heard from Donna Brazile that what many suspected for a long time, is actually true: the DNC secretly chose their nominee over a year before the primary elections even occurred, turning over DNC control to the Clinton campaign.”
It’s good when members of either major party are willing to call out their own. One of the biggest problems in DC today is an unwillingness to cross party lines. Both call for unity even if it means getting behind the wrong people. Hillary was the wrong person for the Democrats. They’re finally learning what non-Democrats have known for years.

Former Sanders surrogates pounce on the DNC after Donna Brazile’s bombshell reveal of a Clinton takeover
Gabbard has been pushing a people to sign a petition “demanding the DNC establish accountability measures in their decision-making processes, eliminate undemocratic superdelegates, and ensure open or same day registration primaries to ensure we return to a party structure that serves the people.”
Brazile’s “proof,” shown in an excerpt from her upcoming book published by Politico, revealed an agreement she discovered between two Clinton campaign funds and the DNC, in which money would be exchanged for control over DNC finances and strategy. She also said the move was “unethical.”
