Donna Brazile called the Vermont Senator w/her "findings" but he was lowkey

She describes a phone call where she told Sanders of her findings but he sounded lowkey.

Which she took as him being magnanimous.


She called Bernie Sanders to tell him about all this, but first ďI lit a candle in my living room and put on some gospel music. I wanted to center myself for what I knew would be an emotional phone call.Ē (In fact, it turned out not to be an emotional call. Apparently Bernie didnít care much.)

20. I knew this back in 2015, the people who wrote and published

just the the one article I probably read about it knew back in 2015, and so did Sanders back in 2015.

And it stretches credulity past breaking to imagine that even a temporary chairman of the DNC, her own salary probably paid with money raised by Hillary to prop up a DNC badly in debt, didn't know perfectly well long before she accepted the honor of that position.

Hillary is our modern-day witch, and too many - including many who deny it - just love to hang her over and over on no evidence.

He knows the truth, why isn't he setting the record straight? He damn well knows that too many will not believe it coming from anyone connected to the Hillary campaign, so why isn't he speaking up?

The Democratic Party, which he ostensibly supports, and in which he is a leader of outreach is being attacked, and he seems quite fine with it. Why? Doesn't he see how this is hurting our outreach? How can we present the Democratic Party as a sane, viable alternative to the shitshow that is the GOP for new and disaffected voters if we have fucking Donna Brazile and Liz Warren claiming we are rigging elections and put up sick candidates? Why isn't he doing his fucking job?

laws on his statement. He is trying to get his supporters to focus on what is right. We need to all be fighting against what's happening to the country and all the things we are losing right now and not perseverating on party infighting.

I felt Bernie's statement was great. It made trump look petty.

I mean, do you seriously believe a policy wonk like Hillary hadn't thought of and made a policy suggestion already to all the issues raised in the debates? Obviously, Donna sent the questions in order to leak it, so that Hillary would be smeared by the accusation. It is a typical Putin strategy, and Donna either was inspired by him, or got help from his surrogates Manafort and his buddies.

6. She can't write. I'm surprised she didn't mention the scent of the candle...

... or describe what she was wearing at that very moment.

On occasion, one finds oneself immersed in the literary throes of a piece of prose where there is very little in the way of advancement of the plot or development of the characters, but the pages are still filled with words. Since the esteemed author has allowed their writing to take a turn for the dry and dull, they gallantly attempt to overcompensate for the lack of stimulation by indulging in elaborate turns of phrase.

12. Yes indeed! You're absolutely correct! It reflects poorly on BOTH of them...

... as well as a certain other Senator who didn't bother to review or confirm the information, and who hasn't bothered to retract and apologize for her accusations and insinuations.

Still, I wonder what would have motivated anyone to simply "let it ride" and not make corrections or issue any warning or advice. It's painfully obvious what the result would be by failing to take action to mitigate the damage.

Oh, wait. Okay. I see.

If any other person knew (and it seems likely that at least one other person did know) I have to wonder what his/her/their motivation may have been to remain silent and to allow false and inflammatory information to be spread. Who benefits from such a thing?

If we can ascertain the answer to that last question, then we'd be on the correct path to determining the motive of any person who failed to speak out when given the opportunity, thus allowing false information to be spread, and causing damage to the party as well as damaging personal reputations.

39. The honest thing to do would be to let someone know when they're wrong.

He no doubt knew he was being used or manipulated in the call. He no doubt saw through it. Bernie does not play politics. He is above it.
It's impossible for you to know what he did or didn't know... but for the sake of discussion, let's assume you're correct.

If he did know he was being "used" and chose to say nothing to correct the mistake... if he didn't challenge her intent or error... if he decided to let-it-ride knowing that there would be fallout that damaged the Democratic Party... then indeed he was "playing politics".

I'm sorry, you can't have it both ways. It's one or the other... not both.

that time is over now. He needs to speak out and lay this to rest once and for all. Everyone here *knows* that many won't believe anyone connected to or supporting of the Hillary campaign, so he needs to step up and do his fucking job. Why he hasn't already, I don't know, but I can only think of very unflattering reasons for refraining to set the record straight.

A "thank you" is in order from Sanders to HRC for keeping the Democratic Party that Sanders needed for his run financially afloat, when Sanders refused to do so.

25. I honestly feel like even if something untoward happened, Bernie would not discuss it.

He understands the threat facing this nation is too great to be bickering over things that we can't change at this point.

In some ways, I think that is what made his candidacy attractive to Democrats. Though he is an acknowledged Independent, he embodies a lot of the traits we would like to see in members that actually call themselves Democrats.

because what? Because he would like to not "bicker"? He would ruin, perhaps permanently, our chance of getting the country back on track this Tuesday, and next year, because he would like to stay above the fray? Fuck that! He has a job in Democratic Party, as so many here keep reminding us. It's time he fucking did his job, and worked to present the party to new and disaffected voters - and letting this shit show of fake accusations and attacks go on when he could stop it in its tracks is lower than low.

32. Not harping, it was meant as humor. This really isn't about Bernie anyway-it's about Donna.

42. Nah Bernie did real good! Is funny how Donna does not realize what she is saying in that excerpt

 

which becomes clear after you realize that she was wrong.

53. Yes, everyone knows Bernie runs the DNC... seriously, Bernie is a class act.

Ironically, maybe Donna Brazile found a way to bring us all together.

38. I'm still trying to understand her motivation. Was this her editors demanding some "juice" to sell..

the book; was the book itself a last ditch effort for a final big paycheck since her political/pundit career was just about over from the news of her leaking debate questions to Clinton; was she trying to curry favor with the Sanders wing by basically smearing the Clinton/Obama wing?

WTH was she thinking?

50. Not only was BS "lowkey"

about her explosive finding of a standard jfa agreement with a memorandum modeled on the one Brazile had negotiated for Gore in 2000, BS was also so concerned about HRC's troubling bout of pneumonia that he had Jeff Weaver call the DNC the day after she fainted to arrange a meeting so he that could personally convey his "get well soon" wishes.

What a guy!

54. You're right... if it were me, a get-well card would have been enough.

55. I wonder if the meeting to deliver the get well card

ever materialized. Hopefully Donna addressed the matter in her book or will at least answer the question during her publicity tour.

Surely the press will be interested in knowing whether Brazile's autobiographic novel is a "tell-all" or a "tell-some" tale.

66. It would be good to get ALL the facts out... the sooner the better

given it's only a year before the 2018 mid-terms.

74. And it's only two days fore the 2017 election.

The timing of the release of the narrative five days before an election is certainly unfortunate. And why is there so much silence from the famous names that the author dropped?

Don't the parties involved realize that elections happen every year?
