Lots of people say it proves corruption but do the emails really reveal that? I say no. What say you?
I'll still have to pure through the emails for myself and read through them, but from the looks of it, there doesn't seem to be any corruption to it - just alot of stupid brain storming that in hindsight makes the DNC leadership look bad.
It's a type of corruption, but more along the lines of Russian elections where the candidate is picked by the politburo. In this case the politburo is the DNC.
I give Sanders voters an E for effort, but an F for research. They assumed that because they are honest, others are too.
Mob mentality is typical conservative behavior.
What rules were violated?
In the conduct and management of the affairs and procedures of the Democratic National Committee, particularly as they apply to the preparation and conduct of the Presidential nomination process, the Chairperson shall exercise impartiality and evenhandedness as between the Presidential candidates and campaigns. The Chairperson shall be responsible for ensuring that the national officers and staff of the Democratic National Committee maintain impartiality and evenhandedness during the Democratic Party Presidential nominating process.
You would know all about that.
But hey, since you're so keen on reflexive dismissals, let me break it down for you:
#1: The DNC has clear and specific rules against bias towards any nominee candidate.
#2: The DNC denied that it was biased towards any candidate.
#3: The leaked e-mails discussed in this thread clearly demonstrate that such a bias existed in the DNC that both actively supported Hillary and opposed Bernie, and that it was systemic despite these rules.
#4: The only logical conclusion based upon these findings is that there was systemic corruption in the DNC in contravention of its own rules in favour of Hillary, and moreover that the DNC was aware of this violation and actively attempted to conceal it.
Do you have a link to the DNC rules?
It is much easier to believe the DNC is simply corrupt as opposed to an elaborate conspiracy theory that the Russians are secretly cooperating with Trump to elect him a Russian mole that will hijack the entire government and hand us over to the Kremlin...
Hot dog! :lamoThe two things one should never show the public how they're made: laws and sausages. Add in party politics for the hat trick.
The man behind the curtain has been unveiled, folks are going to see this as ugly to say the least. Watch Trump's numbers climb.
