Press Release
Sanders Campaign Statement
June 6, 2016


SAN FRANCISCO – U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders’ spokesman, Michael Briggs, on Monday issued the following statement:

It is unfortunate that the media, in a rush to judgement, are ignoring the Democratic National Committee’s clear statement that it is wrong to count the votes of superdelegates before they actually vote at the convention this summer.


“Secretary Clinton does not have and will not have the requisite number of pledged delegates to secure the nomination. She will be dependent on superdelegates who do not vote until July 25 and who can change their minds between now and then.


They include more than 400 superdelegates who endorsed Secretary Clinton 10 months before the first caucuses and primaries and long before any other candidate was in the race.


“Our job from now until the convention is to convince those superdelegates that Bernie is by far the strongest candidate against Donald Trump.”

If one were to look at honestly at the entire escapade since 8 months before the first vote, the thought process of THAT OBJECTIVE individual would be quite different than that of her ardent and near sighted supporters. In fact , such a thing has multiple vectors in play of coming to pass in the near term... FBI... Cliff Arnebeck lawsuit... They are ... coming Hillary's way...

When HRC doesn't have the required number of pledged delegates? We know that super delegates don't get counted until the convention because they have the option of changing up until that point. So how could unbiased media sources justify reporting that HRC won, when votes are not final?

I'm "you no who..." selected to be... your next President by The Establishment Oligarchy!




e.g., MSNBC To the deniers... Watch THIS Video... It is not comforting to think that she may well be the Democratic Nominee...

Hillary really betrayed Andrea Mitchell... The entire context of this report was of a solemn nature... A Funeral so to speak...

Andrea Mitchell "I do not see this report as ...ANYTHING BUT... DEVASTATING!"

Chuck Todd "After this I don't think that she could get confirmed for Attorney General!"

Lots of FIBBING by Hillary here.. for more than a year!

Delegates to reach 2383! More Lies... Her supporters are just like apples... They carry the same characteristics as those on the "Tree!" Not good! No character OR integrity!

There is no way they would alter their procedures to help or hinder a particular candidate and risk their credibility. That's simply ridiculous.

...it's really going to be hard for the Sanders campaign to come down off of the cloud they created with all the hot air about their candidate.

Having decided that Sanders is the embodiment of all things progressive, it's like Hillary is killing progressiveness to them. They've never respected Hillary voters. Never shown a modicum of respect. It's going to be a hard and bitter fall for folks who believe Sanders is the second-coming of FDR.
