Over the last few days, WikiLeaks has released tens of thousands of emails hacked from the Democratic National Committee’s server. The messages reveal dirty tricks directed against Bernie Sanders and only add to the whirlpool of corruption and sleaze surrounding Hillary Clinton and the wheezing corpse of the democratic process.
There’s a lot to unpack here:
‘ The same people on the Clinton team who made enormous efforts to claim her private email server – which operated unencrypted over the Internet for three months, including during trips to China and Russia, and which contained top-secret national-security data – was not hacked by the Russians now are certain that the DNC server was hacked by the Russians.
‘ Many in Camp Clinton and the media labeled Bernie Sanders’ supporters paranoid when they claimed that the DNC was working against them. The hacked emails confirm that the DNC was in fact working against them. One official proposed getting ‘someone,’ presumably a reporter, to ask Sanders if he’s an atheist to discredit him in religious areas.
