2020 presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren wants to revive the Democratic National Committee, but she said in 2017 that the DNC rigged the 2016 primary against Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.
The Massachusetts senator says publicly at events and in private to Democratic party leaders that she wants to revive the DNC to win the 2020 presidential election and to take control of the Senate once again, according to the New York Times. Simultaneously, Warren reminds voters that she is “with Bernie” on Medicare, and strives to align herself with progressives, the publication reports.
Though Warren now curries favor with the DNC, she said in 2017 that the DNC helped to rig the 2016 election for Hilary Clinton.
Former Democratic National Committee (DNC) chairwoman Donna Brazile wrote a book after the election exposing the DNC’s favoring of Clinton, saying that Clinton’s campaign “had the DNC on life support, giving it money every month to meet its basic expenses.”
Asked by CNN’s Jake Tapper if she believed that Clinton and Sanders’s contest was rigged, Warren said, “Yes.”
Warren also called the Clintons a “real problem” for the party, saying “But what we’ve got to do as Democrats now, is we’ve got to hold this party accountable.”
President Donald Trump tweeted about Warren’s thoughts on the matter and called for an investigation from the FBI and the Justice Department.
“Pocahontas just stated that the Democrats, lead by the legendary Crooked Hillary Clinton, rigged the Primaries!” Trump tweeted. “Lets go FBI & Justice Dept.”

When I saw six State primaries so close that they had to be decided by tossing coins, and all six came out for Hillary, it was pretty plain that Bernie was an unwelcome distraction for a party that had already decided that it was Hillary’s turn, regardless of what the electorate wanted. So for folks who don’t like Trump, you can thank Debbie Wassermann Schultz for getting him into the White House. Bernie’s son took chemistry with me at BHS, and I know him on a parent/teacher basis. Don’t be afraid of him because of the label “socialist.” Here in Vermont we do a lot of socialist stuff. Many things that we have decided are too important to be left to private business, are done in a socialist way. We have public schools, and public roads, and Burlington has a publicllly owned power station that burns wood chips, and the state owns most of the rail lines west of the mountains, because the companies that used to own them were going out of business.. Burlington once had a publically owned TV station, but the mayor, (who claims to be a “liberal” and recently has been covering for some police officers who beat a guy to death) sold it. . Anyway, I’d support Bernie. Where oh where is Wendell Wilkie now that we need him? Or even Dick Nixon?
Dream ticket? Bernie and Pochantas, don’t laugh, scares the heck out of me.
Elizabeth ” Batty” Warren, wants to revive the Democratic National Committee,
I guess it’s not leaning far enough left, like Complete Socialism !!
I’m not sure who’s the biggest ” BS ” artist Warren or Sanders both have made their
fortunes with Capitalism and condemn it every day……..Hypocrites…… Oh, yea.
The last time I saw anyone act like her, it was the summer of 69…….
