WEST PALM BEACH, Florida, USA (sentinel.ht) – Bernie Sanders supporters looking to file lawsuits against the Democratic National Committee for rigging the primaries outside of party rules and what was purported, now have their most clear cut evidence of the conspiracy.

During a congressional primary debate between Congresswoman, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and her challenger, Tim Canova, the disgraced former DNC Chair, Wasserman Schultz, said that since 2012, she and the DNC had done the critical work to ensure that Hillary Clinton would be the party’s nominee. Her exact words were:

“I was a key part of getting President Obama reelected in 2012 and the work we did to prepare for Hillary Clinton to be our nominee and then make sure we could get her elected president is absolutely critical…” – Debbie Wasserman Schultz

Wasserman Schultz was forced to resign as the chairwoman of the DNC on the eve of their convention last month when emails showing top officials in the party scheming and bad-mouthing Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and his supporters during a most critical time of the primaries.

Simultaneously as the announcement of the resignation of Wasserman Schultz was being circulated, she was hired as the honorary chair of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

Sanders had long alleged that the primaries were rigged and called for Wasserman Schultz’s resignation. In the early goings he saw the party schedule only 6 debates when the previous cycle had 28, a steep reduction that favored the more well-known Clinton. Furthermore, the debates were scheduled on Saturday evenings when most Americans would not be watching.

The progressives in the Democratic party have moreover disaffected from supporting Clinton. It is estimated that more than 45% of Sanders supporters will not vote for Hillary Clinton in the general election and many, from around the nation, have sent their support to Wasserman Schultz’s challenger, Tim Canova.
