(It's 'official' folks): The DNC says Sanders colluded with the Russians!

This guy is still on the payroll (let that sink in):

Adam Parkhomenko is a Democratic political strategist and organizer who served as National Field Director for the Democratic National Committee in 2016.[1] He was the co-founder and executive director of Ready for Hillary, a super PAC established to persuade Hillary Clinton to run for the presidency of the United States in 2016.[2][3][4] In the 2017 party election, Parkhomenko was a candidate for Vice Chair of the Democratic National Committee.[5]

How freaking funny. Does that make him a Socialist Communist? How does that work??

How does that figure in? Doesn't that mean that a Russian helped Hillary?

What about Russian salad dressing? Does Bernie eat it, or Hillary?

of the 'official' DNC stance.

I say that because Bernie acknowledged a couple weeks ago (to Ari Melber) that he was aware of Russian meddling in the Dem Party Primary. Here's an excerpt from the MSNBC interview, and a Tweet with the video,

But Sanders now says his resentment to the email developments went deeper, telling MSNBC Wednesday afternoon the Democratic Party was fully aware they were under cyberattack by the Russians.

"Did you know then that this might have been part of [the Kremlin’s] design?" MSNBC reporter Ari Melber asked Sanders Wednesday. "To leak these emails precisely so that there would be more riffs in the Democratic Party?"

"Well of course we knew that," Sanders replied.

"Of course we knew that they were trying to cause divisiveness within the Democratic Party," the senator continued. "That’s no great secret."

and,

I'm concerned that after Wednesday's White House meeting, the Dem Party Leadership may be getting ready to 'hold hands with' DT and the Repubs on tax reform, on an infrastructure bill which will heavily privatize our Interstate highways, and on 'reforming' the ACA in a bipartisan corporatist fashion--currently being worked on in the Senate HELP Committee.

Certainly, there's no talk of opposition to those reforms that I've seen--just a constant rehash of the 2016 Primary being churned out by Dem Party hacks, probably, intended to distract.

JFCOAPS! No Bernie, Russia wasn't the ones who screwed YOU over, it was the DNC! They purposely sabotaged your campaign so that Herheinous would win the primary.

Gawd! If this is what he actually believes, then how can he say that Herheinous won the primary "fair and square "?

Did Russia change people's party affiliation and kick them off the voting rolls too? No you idiot, that was done by the DNC and other who worked on Herheinous' campaign.

I'm done giving him the benefit of the doubt. With this and his MFA instead of single payer and letting the minimum wage wait 7 more years until it's $15, this proves that he isn't seriously trying to change the party from the inside. This is just more kabuki bullshit that the democrats have been playing since the Clintons destroyed everything good about the DP!

I agree with you that the DP is going to be working with Trump and the republicans on their legislation. Chuckles has already said that he was "open to working with them". After what the republicans did for 8 years, the democrats are willing to see if they have common grounds on their legislation.
Yep. And Pelosi told us that after Herheinous lost to the Orange Cheeto. "I see no reason to change anything".

@snoopydawg It doesn't matter what he believes. He will say whatever the DNC wants him to say. He is, at this point, a beaten man and a puppet--or someone who was a sheepdog all along, which I don't believe for the reasons I've laid out in the past, primarily that the corporate media does not respond to sheepdogs the way they responded to him. They responded the same way to him that they did to Occupy--until after the convention.

It doesn't matter what he believes or what his character is. Once you're a puppet, your only individual characteristic that matters is whether you have the gumption to cut the puppet strings.

So long, and thanks for all the fish

As Hillary ramps up her book tour, expect a lot more of these attacks. As Thomas Frank observed in a recent interview about Hillary's attacks on Sanders, he noted that the Clintons absolutely hated the left wing of the party and they never accommodated it--witness he said, Tim Kaine as VP. She could have nominated a real progressive and instead nominated a corporatist.

Every fucking Hillary zombie will come out to defend her during her book tour.

Hillary and her revenge tour may ironically be the catylst which sparks an exodus of progressives into third parties. I hope so.
