President Trump on Saturday said over Twitter that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) is “again working its magic in its quest to destroy Crazy Bernie Sanders,” in favor of “Sleepy” Joe Biden. Trump then wrote “Here we go again Bernie, but this time please show a little more anger and indignation when you get screwed!“
….for the more traditional, but not very bright, Sleepy Joe Biden. Here we go again Bernie, but this time please show a little more anger and indignation when you get screwed!

How was Bernie screwed?
Thanks to WikiLeaks and admissions by former DNC chair-turned-Fox News contributor Donna Brazile, we know that the DNC coordinated with the Clinton Campaign during the 2016 primaries to give Obama’s former Secretary of State an unfair advantage over Sanders.
Not only did Brazile give Clinton’s team CNN debate questions ahead of time – as revealed by WikiLeaks, the DNC cut off Sanders’ access to a critical voter database in what Bernie suggested was a setup.
The Democratic National Committee (DNC) had hired an outside software partner, “NGP VAN,” to manage its voter database. Founded by Nathaniel Pearlman – chief technology officer for Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign – NGP’s ‘VoteBuilder’ software was designed for Democratic candidates (Bernie, Hillary, etc.) to track and analyze highly detailed information on voters for the purposes of ‘microtargeting’ specific demographics.
On December 16th, 2015, NGP VAN updated the Votebuilder with a patch that contained a bug – allowing the Sanders and the Clinton campaigns to temporarily access each other’s proprietary voter information for around 40 minutes. Lo and behold, the Sanders campaign National Data Director, Josh Uretsky, was found to have accessed Clinton’s information and was promptly fired.
Uretsky’s excuse was that he was simply grabbing Clinton’s data during the window of vulnerability to prove that the breach was real.
Bernie cried false flag!
Sanders claimed that Uretsky was a DNC plant – “recommended by the DNC’s National Data Director along with NGP’s Pearlman. Sanders sued the DNC in December 2015, only to drop the case four months later after a DNC investigation concluded that the wrongdoing did not go beyond Uretsky and three staffers under his command.
More DNC plotting – exposed by WikiLeaks and Donna Brazile:
In her 2017 book, Brazile said that she had discovered a 2015 deal between the Clinton campaign, Clinton’s joint fundraising committee, and the DNC – which would allow Clinton’s campaign to “control the party’s finances, strategy, and all the money raised.” Brazile said that while the deal “looked unethical,” she found “no evidence” that the 2016 primary was rigged.
Meanwhile, in an email from early May, DNC CFO Brad Marshall wrote about a plot to question Sanders’s religion. While not naming the Vermont senator directly, it talks about a man of “Jewish heritage” Marshall believes to be an atheist. It makes reference to voters in Kentucky and West Virginia, two states that were holding upcoming primary elections.
“It might may no difference, but for KY and WVA can we get someone to ask his belief. Does he believe in a God. He had skated on saying he has a Jewish heritage. I think I read he is an atheist. This could make several points difference with my peeps. My Southern Baptist peeps would draw a big difference between a Jew and an atheist,” the email says.
“AMEN,” DNC Chief Executive Officer Amy K. Dacey replied.
In #DNCLeaks we learned that Bernie’s atheism was used against him. I’ll take an atheist over someone that bears false witness any day FWIW.

Marshall did not respond to a request for comment. But he did tell The Intercept, which first noticed the email, “I do not recall this. I can say it would not have been Sanders. It would probably be about a surrogate.”
DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, meanwhile had written Bernie off completely – noting in a May 21 email (while there were still nine primary debates to go): “This is a silly story,” adding “He isn’t going to be president.” Of course, Sanders told CNN‘s Jake Tapper that if he was elected president, Wasserman Schultz would be out at the DNC.

And what did Bernie do after he lost the primaries, knowing Clinton and the DNC conspired against him? He ran to Hillary’s side like a lapdog and gave her his full-throated support.
And no wonder DNC chair Tom Perez has urged Republicans not to use “stolen private data” during the 2020 campaign – since Wikileaks emails contiain massive evidence of the DNC’s collusion against Sanders.
