Those who claim the Bernie campaign engaged in criminal acts are spreading conspiracy theories

I have seen several people on this site push unfounded conspiracy theories today alleging that there were people within the Bernie campaign who were involved in a criminal conspiracy to steal data from the Clinton campaign.

So far however no law enforcement agency has suggested there was any criminal wrongdoing, in fact there is nothing to suggest that they even plan on launching a criminal investigation.

If the people on this site who are suggesting that a crime was committed have evidence of such a crime then I suggest they turn over that evidence to the FBI, if they don't have any evidence then I suggest they stop spreading conspiracy nonsense.

What is especially ironic is that the same people who are spreading these conspiracy theories are denouncing Bernie supporters for pushing conspiracy theories. The truth is however I have not seen a single Bernie supporter push a conspiracy theory today. I have seen Bernie supporters allege that dirty tricks are happening, but dirty tricks are not the same thing as a conspiracy. By definition a conspiracy involves an illegal plot between two or more people, and I have yet to see a Bernie supporter allege any criminal activity took place.

Anyone who has any evidence of a crime needs to turn it over to the FBI, I am not too worried about that happening however because I know damn well that the DUers pushing this conspiracy nonsense are full of shit.

2. This isn't the movies.

The FBI doesn't swoop in the second they hear of something even if it IS a crime.

3. If there is solid proof of a crime you better believe the FBI would launch an investigation.

If they suspect a crime they want to start the investigation as quickly as possible to ensure no evidence is lost.

6. They "may" do a lot of things, but there is no evidence to suggest they will do it

If you have evidence of a crime then hand it over, they won't do anything without evidence and there is no evidence of criminal wrongdoing yet.

If you don't have evidence but are relying on what "may" happen then you are engaging in baseless conspiracy theories.

4. Yea Verily ...

 

I think this stupid act has cost Hillary her preferred career ... The stench around her and her high fallutin DNC BFFs is growing ... Their Machiavellian mischief is laid bare ...

There is a price to pay ... I don't think Bernie is the one to pay it ...

7. They are just idiots. At worst, this is a contract breach.

 

But likely not even that. People are dumb.

8. Oh gawd, a conspiracy theory inside a conspiracy theory.....

Like a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma. Whoa!

Just ask for a link and proof. If they can't give it, point and laugh.
