The Amazing True Story Of How Hillary Clinton Secretly Cheated Bernie Sanders Out Of A Fair Shot At The Democratic Nomination

Yes, Hillary Clinton really did steal the Democratic nomination from Bernie Sanders, but most people have absolutely no idea how she actually did it.  In the end, it was all about the money.  A secret joint fundraising agreement that was made between the Democratic National Committee, the Hillary Victory Fund, and Hillary for America gave the Clinton campaign full control of the Democratic Party nearly a year before she officially won the nomination.  Normally, a presidential candidate for a major party would only be permitted to take full control once the nomination had been secured.  But in Hillary’s case, her campaign had a stranglehold over the Democratic National Committee virtually the entire time she was engaged in a heated battle with Bernie Sanders for the Democratic nomination.


In her new book entitled Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns that Put Donald Trump in the White House, Donna Brazile gives us the inside scoop about what really happened inside the DNC during this time period.  When she first took over the DNC, she actually had no idea of what had transpired, and when she finally discovered the truth it absolutely horrified her.  On Thursday, Politico published an excerpt from Brazile’s new book in an article entitled “Inside Hillary Clinton’s Secret Takeover of the DNC”

I had promised Bernie when I took the helm of the Democratic National Committee after the convention that I would get to the bottom of whether Hillary Clinton’s team had rigged the nomination process, as a cache of emails stolen by Russian hackers and posted online had suggested. I’d had my suspicions from the moment I walked in the door of the DNC a month or so earlier, based on the leaked emails. But who knew if some of them might have been forged? I needed to have solid proof, and so did Bernie.

Brazile ultimately found the proof that she was looking for by following the money.  The Democratic National Committee has been in terrible financial shape for years, and by the time Brazile took over it had become completely and utterly dependent on the Clinton campaign for financial support.  Here is more from her new book

The campaign had the DNC on life support, giving it money every month to meet its basic expenses, while the campaign was using the party as a fund-raising clearinghouse. Under FEC law, an individual can contribute a maximum of $2,700 directly to a presidential campaign. But the limits are much higher for contributions to state parties and a party’s national committee.

Individuals who had maxed out their $2,700 contribution limit to the campaign could write an additional check for $353,400 to the Hillary Victory Fund—that figure represented $10,000 to each of the 32 states’ parties who were part of the Victory Fund agreement—$320,000—and $33,400 to the DNC. The money would be deposited in the states first, and transferred to the DNC shortly after that. Money in the battleground states usually stayed in that state, but all the other states funneled that money directly to the DNC, which quickly transferred the money to Brooklyn.

But this dependence on the Clinton campaign did not begin once she had won the nomination.

Actually, it started all the way back in August 2015, which was just four short months after Hillary Clinton originally announced that she would be running for president.

Brazile was able to find the joint fundraising agreement that had begun this arrangement, and it is the “smoking gun” which proves that Bernie Sanders never had a fair shot at winning the nomination

When I got back from a vacation in Martha’s Vineyard, I at last found the document that described it all: the Joint Fund-Raising Agreement between the DNC, the Hillary Victory Fund, and Hillary for America.

The agreement—signed by Amy Dacey, the former CEO of the DNC, and Robby Mook with a copy to Marc Elias—specified that in exchange for raising money and investing in the DNC, Hillary would control the party’s finances, strategy, and all the money raised. Her campaign had the right of refusal of who would be the party communications director, and it would make final decisions on all the other staff. The DNC also was required to consult with the campaign about all other staffing, budgeting, data, analytics, and mailings.

How in the world was Bernie Sanders supposed to have a fair chance if Hillary was in full control of “the party’s finances, strategy, and all the money raised”?

The mainstream media has spent months trying to prove that President Trump colluded with the Russians and they haven’t come up with anything.

And yet now we have smoking gun evidence that Hillary Clinton actually did collude with the DNC to cheat Bernie Sanders out of a fair shot at the Democratic nomination, and the big media outlets so far are not making a big deal out of it.

Sadly, most Americans have just become resigned to the fact that our political system has become a cesspool of filth and corruption.  Most of us simply accept that it has always been this way and that things will never change.

Well, I happen to believe that things can change if we are willing to fight back.  The election of Donald Trump showed us that anything is possible, and we need a new generation of leaders that are willing to go to Washington and drain the swamp.

We cannot let Hillary Clinton off the hook, and so please share this article as widely as possible.  Just because she lost the election does not mean that we should forget about her crimes.  We tend to get on members of Congress for doing this, but it is our responsibility as well.

It has been said that “eternal vigilance is the price of liberty”, and if we want to take our country back we have to hold corrupt leaders such as Hillary Clinton accountable.  Because if we don’t shine a light on this kind of corruption, it will just keep on happening…

  • My disappointment in the Republican party continues to grow. We have so many REAL problems that need to be addressed, yet it’s just sooooo much lazier and easier to keep wasting time beating the dead horse called Hillary.

    Tell us what political office this woman holds, please? That way we can FINALLY understand why she still gets so much attention rather than the disaster in the White House who’s actively running our country into the ground.

    All of you Neros are furiously fiddling away about some has-been and in the process you’re letting Rome burn, burn, burn. Every article about former Secretary of State Clinton is your complicity in letting Crooked Donald ruin this formerly great nation. Hold HIS feet to the fire if you want to be of use to America.

      She brings attention upon herself, she just can’t shut and go away. Stold the primary from poor Bernie, who had a better chance of beating Trump, then got outworked and lost the general election. Two time failed candidate Hilllary don’t go away mad just go away before you end up in jail.

      • Oh, really?? Yeah, let’s shut the woman up who KEEPS GETTING ARTICLES WRITTEN about her every day of every week of every of every month of every year, because Heaven forbid a woman actually gets permission to talk about the thing that everyone else is talking about (in this case that thing being constantly talked about is HERSELF).

        I’ll dumb it down for you: If you were dating two women, then married ONE of them, why in the living F— would you constantly moan and groan and drone about the one you DIDN’T marry? The wife you have now (in this theoretical example) is blowing every ghetto gangbanger in town, shooting up drugs in front of your kids, taking dumps on top of police cars, telling *everyone* in town what a rotten lay you are, and there you are just a shaking your fist at the ex who got away. You’ve got a REAL problem here, and yet you choose to willfully ignore the only threat to your existence by constantly ignoring your only problem and instead continually obsessing over the one who has not a danged modicum of power over your life.

        Wise the F— up. Anyone (including the dozen or so NON-Hillary Clintons) writing all of these Hey-Let’s-Keep-Hillary’s-Name-On-Top-Of-Every-News-Cycle books and/or articles is complicit in en.wikipedia. org/wiki/Matthew_7:3

          Hillary can’t shut her mouth, writes books whining about the election she screwed up, and now even her comrades are coming out of the woodwork to speak the truth concerning her corruption during the primary against “Crazy Bernie.” The irony here is “Crazy Bernie” probably had and probably would have defeated now President Trump. That’s got to really suck for Democrats. Regardless of anyone’s deluded opinion of how bad now President Trump is performing, crooked Hillary should still be held accountable for her detestable and unlawful actions.

          • “writes books whining about the election she screwed up [sic]”

            Oh? How many bookss was that?

            And why is it that hers only came out AFTER her long-standing enemies’ books did? If she even so much as ***opens*** her mouth, you hysterics scream that she can’t shut it.

            “Regardless of anyone’s deluded [sic] opinion of how bad now [Crooked Donald] is “

            You can call fact “opinion” all you like, but the FACT is that Deceitful Donald has hemorrhaged more and more and more of his mouth-breathing acolytes and it isn’t because they’re fickle. It’s because they have come to realize he’s a phony and a charlatan, and he never once intended to help the developmentally (and fiscally) disabled folk he pretended to care about. They realize they were conned; sadly, the entire country must pay for their former gullibility.

            Hillary needs to be investigated for the Uranium One scandal

      • Jail for what? She’s been investigated since the 90’s and no one can find anything to stick.
        Now Trump, OTOH!

        • 72 Dolphins

          Comey is gone now, “rigging” the primary against “Crazy Bernie” and even the uranium treason issue could well be cause to finally put “Crooked Hillary” in the slammer.

          • If you have any information on any “uranium treason”, PLEASE share it with Crooked Donald! He’s been looking for any evidence regarding that, and so have his dwindling supporters!

        she has to commit a crime first. how unAmerican can you get bro?

    • I been sick of hearing her name over the last 2 years and I was waiting for everyone to leave the old gal alone after last November. The way people still force the spotlight on her it’s like she won the election FFS.
      But you’re getting your wish about Trump. Be happy for that. Just before xmas like everyone predicted too.

      • I was dreading what we were all told was the inevitable, namely, Clinton winning in 2016. If we thought the witch hunting is hysterical now what with her just a private citizen, *I*M*A*G*I*N*E* the constant pants-ρissing and venom-spewing these snowflakes would be subjecting everyone to had Putin not installed her opponent instead. {shudder}

      I like your description of Hillary as a “dead horse.” What really bothers me is that 60+ million Americans, many supposedly intelligent people, actually voted for “a dead horse.” Scares the —p out of me that there are so many such people in this nation. And many of her supporters are STILL circling the wagons around her.

      Just think, if those who are trying to get rid of the guy in the WH would just quietly go about their daily business like so many of us did under the former dictator, maybe the country could actually move forward and accomplish some things. I posit it is those who are attempting to maintain TPTB status quo who are and have run the nation into the ground. It didn’t start 9 months ago!!

      Putting the blame on a man who has been in office only 9 months shows a lack of understanding about how quickly a president can affect the course of a $20 trillion a year nation, especially without any help from the Legislative or Legal Branches of govt.

      The people of this nation said morality didn’t matter when Bill was president, “just give us a strong economy”. Do you realize what has happened since? Do they think morality matters today? If it didn’t matter 21 years ago why should it matter today? It will only matter if the nation confesses it sinned in voting for money over character in 1996. The daily news is filled with all kinds of immorality. We got just exactly what we voted for 21 years ago. Who is surprised? Only those who can’t see or have no sense of history

      • “bothers me is that 60+ million Americans, many supposedly intelligent people, actually voted for “a dead horse.” “

        No one voted for a dead horse. She was by far and away the better, wiser, more qualified candidate, which isn’t even a compliment as her “opponent” was no more than an animated ρooρ emoji.

        “[…] supporters are STILL circling the wagons around her.”

        I wouldn’t know. And you shouldn’t either. Every time you read about her, talk about her, obsess about her, is power and validity that you are kneeling down and HANDING her and her supposed supporters. Frankly if you know (or follow) her day-to-day goings on then you’re part of the problem.

        “if those who are trying to get rid of the guy in the WH would just quietly go about their daily business […]”

        He has a name; it’s Mueller, and his patriotic duties are in literally NO way, shape, or form affecting you in the least. Just let the lawmen do their legal duty and quit sweat-drenching your dainty kn!ckers.

        “[…] like so many of us did under the former dictator [sic]”

        I guess ‘no comment’, as I was speaking about the United States where we haven’t had anyone called a dictator since GW Bush (who btw is lookin’ MIGHTY good these days in comparison to the current Dictator-in-Chief). Just be happy that our next few months of Crooked Donald will never get as ferocious and as outrageously nasty as the last eight years’ worth of hysterical snowflaking against the White House. Frankly, if Obama had done even one measly percent of the ghastly actions (or inactions) that Crooked Donald is pulling, he’d have been lynched in precisely the manner that his haters were threatening/promising over the last eight years.

        “Putting the blame on a man who has been in office only 9 months […] lack of understanding about how quickly a president can affect the course of a $20 trillion a year nation, especially without any help from the Legislative or Legal Branches of govt.”

        A more apt wording would be along the lines of not “praising” this White House occupier for what’s going right when he nor his orders are responsible for any good. The three branches of the Government should be praised for tempering the tinfoil dictator’s utterly clueless stabs at democracy. Without the Patriots in the Legislative, Executive, and Judicial branches, we’d have already imploded as a sovereign nation. He is the unstable element, the three branches are the packing peanuts, fire extinguisher, and HazMat uniform. G-d willing that Mueller continues to be the successful decontamination shower this nation needs!

        “The people of this nation said morality didn’t matter when Bill was president,”

        No, they didn’t say that until thrice-divorced, ρussy-grabbin’, Debt-defaultin’, Bankruptcy-filin’, Casino-ownin’, Church-shunnin’, Taxes-hidin’, Putin Puppet DONALD was running. In fact, Evangelicals themselves said that morality didn’t matter when choosing a President (per this very website, as well as the polls that this author quoted). They just cared that the person who wasn’t their own personal Babadook didn’t win. No more, no less. Oh, wait — people DID say that morality DOES matter when speaking against Hillary Clinton, but magically it DIDN’T matter against the phony Republican she was running against.

        “[…] 1996 […]”

        Flippin’ A already. WHAT?!?! We have the most egregious “human” being in the White House, selling weapons to the country that perpetrated 9/11, publicly spreading wide for Putin, hiding every movement and action (except for his smarmy disdain over NFL and celebrity dating on Twitter), using his title for personal profit, and generally ruining this country from the inside (as would be the ONLY way to ruin us), and YOU do even MORE stupid than this author by trying hysterically to point to nineteen-ninety-friςking-SIX?

        Satan must absolutely exist and be at work in the hearts and minds of anyone who continually tries to take the heat off of the ONLY PERSON WHO IS PERSONALLY THE PRESIDENT RIGHT NOW. Putin’s bad, and his plans for America that he’s sliding through via his Micturian Candidate are bad too, but no, this can’t all be blamed on Putin and his millions now of Яussian troll farmbots “supporting” his plant in the White House, no, this can’t just be the workings of a human individual — truly Satan must be possessing those who aren’t just content to bring up the DEAD HORSE that is post-2016 Clinton, but 1996 as well! Putin wouldn’t sink so low; Satan, yes. Putin, too smart for that.

          Setting aside all your misinformation and uninformed opinions, Hillary was absolutely not qualified unless lack of success at anything she’s ever done and simply having a job title makes a person qualified. Add to that the well-proven corruption she’s been involved in during her entire adult lifetime and you’ve got the last person any sane employer would want to hire.

          • In actuality, I’ve been exposed to inundated by the misinformation and biased opinions about her for the last thirty-plus years.

            If you wish to speak of an entire adult life dedicated to well-proven corruption, look no further than the current White House occupant.

            Oh, wait — it’s Friday… so postpone your looking until Monday. that’s when he’ll be back at “work”.

            Thank you for your brief and to the point refutation.

            I would only add, in response to Carrie’s delusional rebuttal, the same poor character and judgment qualities Hillary exhibits appear to be true about the SP Mueller. Hopefully, he ends up disbarred as does she and perhaps they can find a nice, secure, cozy place for the two of them to discuss “old times”, with a few of their friends.

    Brazile has been a Clinton insider for decades. While there may be truth in this book, I find myself extremely skeptical about why she would write it, unless there’s a behind the scenes plan that this book is to do something we aren’t aware of. Certainly it will keep the focus off of other things. And, from what I understand so far about the book, it sounds like it pretty much lays responsibility for what happened on others, specifically Debbie Wasserman Schultz (DWS). I have to wonder if the idea is to throw DWS under the bus to protect others, specifically the Clintons. The list of people who have coincidentally died that have been close to the Clintons is longer than a person’s arm. If Brazile truly is revealing truth and it does damage the Clintons, she will have to be looking over her shoulder for he rest of her life or she, too, may find herself on that long list.

  • DJohn1

    The problem is the plank in our eyes rather than the speck in the eyes looking at Hillary. Good questions, no good answers.
    Blindfold someone, spin them around, throw a dart. You will obviously hit a corrupt democrat. In this case the entire Clinton campaign for President.
    Applying the biblical proverb from Jesus, I suggest the same rules apply to everyone. So drag her down and drag down anyone else involved in dirty politics from either party.
    Just be aware such a lynch party will bring down a whole lot of people from both sides of the political fence including a lot of Democrats and Republicans now elected to office.
    You are right the Bernie Sanders show was just that. A token show from a well-known Socialist in Democrat disguise.
    We are checking money. Money talks, B——–t walks.
    How about talking about who contributed much money to who’s campaigns?
    Or is that subject taboo.
    The best laugh of the political season is that the same Republicans mouthing off about taking down Obamacare had sizeable political contributions from the very people they are supposed to be against. But that would take real work rooting out who contributed to who and what they have to gain by keeping Obamacare alive.
    IT is fantasy to expect anyone to go up against this supposed “secret”: motivation to keep Donald Trump’s vision of doing away with Obamacare from happening.
    Why hasn’t Donald Trump published the list of campaign contributions from insurance companies?
    I would selectively expose what is really going on with Rhinos.
    That would insure they never run for office again.
    Bernie was always token opposition to Hillary. They are good friends.
