DNC/Hillary Campaign in Damage Control Mode
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
It’s impossible for any thinking person not to revile America’s debauched political system – one-party rule with two right wings, a plutocracy, not a democracy, at war on humanity at home and abroad, asserting its will on all nations worldwide, repressing and exploiting its own people.
Dark forces in Washington make policy. Presidents, Congress and the courts serve them, fronting for powerful monied interests running America, exploiting people worldwide for greater power and riches.
A separate article discussed the neocon/CIA-connected Washington Post report headlined “Clinton campaign, DNC paid for research that led to Russia dossier.”
It consisted of fabricated dirt to discredit him, falsely alleging collusion with Russia. It became a key part of the deplorable Russiagate scandal – a sinister plot to delegitimize Trump, including phony accusations of Russian US election interference to help him defeat Hillary.
The scheme and lots more to help her succeed Obama failed. WaPo supported her candidacy, consistently bashing Trump throughout the campaign – why its Tuesday report surprised, criticizing her campaign and the DNC it backed last year.
Its damning information is grist for Hillary haters, a woman I called the most ruthlessly dangerous presidential aspirant in US history.
As deplorable as things are under Trump, had she won last November, nuclear war on Russia might have followed, maybe Iran and North Korea as well, the doomsday scenario that should terrify everyone.
The DNC and her campaign are in damage control mode following WaPo’s report. Trump tweeted “Clinton campaign & DNC paid for research that led to the anti-Trump Fake News Dossier. The victim here is the President.”
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders tweeted: “The real Russia scandal? Clinton campaign paid for the fake Russia dossier, then lied about it & covered it up.”
DNC Communications Director Xochitl Hinojosa said chairman “Tom Perez and the new leadership of the DNC were not involved in any decision-making regarding Fusion GPS, nor were they aware that Perkins Coie was working with the organization.”
“But lets be clear, there is a serious federal investigation into the Trump campaigns ties to Russia, and the American public deserves to know what happened.”
Former Clinton campaign press secretary Brian Fallon tweeted “I regret I didn’t know about Christopher Steele’s hiring pre-election. If I had, I would have volunteered to go to Europe and try to help him.”
Make your own judgment. Last July, DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz was caught red-handed, rigging the electoral process for Clinton over Sanders – forced to step down in the wake of the scandal.
Donna Brazile replaced her as interim chairperson. She admitted using her earlier position as a CNN commentator to give Hillary debate questions in advance of an undemocratic Dem debate with Sanders, giving her an unfair advantage.
The Dem party primary process was rigged for her to win, Sanders meekly going along to make things look legitimate – then disgracefully endorsed her after she defrauded him.
Republicans are no better. Both parties serve privileged interests exclusively and themselves – ordinary people exploited and abused, their rights and welfare ignored.
