    Democratic National Committee documents leaked by a hacker Tuesday reveal that Hillary Clinton’s requirements to give a speech included a private flight and a luxurious presidential hotel suite. One of the documents leaked is a form filled out by the University of Nevada, Las Vegas Foundation for the Harry Walker Agency. The Harry Walker Agency is a speaker’s bureau, which represented Hillary Clinton. On top of the $225,000 fee for her 20 minute speech, the agency gave the UNLV Foundation “standard travel expenses” for Clinton. This “include[s] a chartered roundtrip private air transportation (e.g., a Gulfstream 450 or larger jet),...

    Rep. Chaka Fattah (D., Pa.), a Hillary Clinton superdelegate, was convicted on Tuesday on corruption charges stemming from a racketeering conspiracy in which the congressman and four associates misappropriated thousands of dollars from federal, campaign, and charitable sources. Fattah and four associates were indicted in July 2015 on 29 corruption charges including racketeering, bribery, money laundering, mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, and falsification of records, among other charges. The Department of Justice said Fattah took an illegal $1 million loan from his failed Philadelphia mayoral bid in 2007 and disguised it as a loan to his consulting company. At...

    A hacked 42-page Democrat National Committee memo released on Monday reveals the dizzying array of Clinton Foundation scandal facts the DNC considers “vulnerabilities” for presumptive Democratic Party presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. The secret document, titled “Clinton Foundation Vulnerabilities Master Doc FINAL,” is one of several newly released internal memos obtained by the hacker known as “Guccifer 2.0.” Totaling over 22,000 words in length, the DNC vulnerabilities dossier paints a portrait of a political party besieged by media coverage of foreign Clinton Foundation donations spawned by the investigative New York Times bestselling book, Clinton Cash. The document chronicles hundreds of news...

    It was recently revealed that a European hacker, likely under the guidance of Russian intelligence agencies, obtained access to the Democrat National Committee’s computer network, absconding with untold amounts of documents and internal information. The hacker, who goes by the moniker “Guccifer 2.0,” an homage to the now-jailed Romanian hacker believed to have breached the private email server of former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, just released some of the documents allegedly hacked from the DNC files, according to the Washington Examiner. These included such documents as a master defense plan covering Clinton’s many weaknesses and a “cheat sheet” detailing...

    DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz has turned over her duties to Brandon Davis, National Political Coordinator for the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), who was installed by the Clinton campaign. Wasserman Schultz will retain her title as DNC Chair until the Democratic Party votes on a successor. While Democratic presidential nominees traditionally appoint election managers after the primaries end—as Barack Obama did in 2008—the alleged removal of Wasserman Schultz as DNC chair was nothing more than a publicity stunt. In effect, the move allows Clinton to tout an image of responding to Wasserman Schultz’s poor favorability without actually having to...

Bernie Sanders’ primary campaign was undermined by supposedly neutral party officials, according to a document snatched from Democratic National Committee by the hacker who calls himself “Guccifer 2.0.” The document shows that Clinton and the DNC have been working in together against Sanders from at least the spring of 2015. The document, dated May 26, 2015, shows that the DNC had already chosen Clinton as the party’s expected nominee and was going to work with reporters from mainstream outlets to downplay Clinton’s negatives and to highlight her positives throughout the course of the primary. The document was created...

The declaration by CrowdStrike, who is used to maintain the security of government servers, seems to have spurred the hacker known only as Guccifer 2.0 to reveal via the website Guccifer2.wordpress.com, that he/she was the source of the hack and not the Russians. In a blog post dated June 15th, Guccifer 2.0 states: I’m very...

The DNC further said that no financial, donor or personal information appears to have been accessed or taken, suggesting that the breach was traditional espionage, not the work of criminal hackers. It appears that was not entirely true, because barely 24 hours later, the alleged "Russian" hackers has emerged under the Guccifer2 handle, and instead of a group of...

    Ahead of President Barack Obama’s first visit to Vietnam, the country voted Sunday in once-every-five-year-elections for a rubber-stamp parliament whose membership has already been largely determined by the Communist Party. Amid worries about soaring public debt, a serious budget deficit and China’s aggressive claims in nearby seas, there’s also high hope for Obama’s visit, both in the government, which wants him to lift an arms export embargo so it can better deal with Beijing, and among rights activists who want him to hold to account a repressive one-party state seen as treating its critics abysmally.

The beating nearly killed Sumner and it drew a sharply polarized response from the American public on the subject of the expansion of slavery in the United States. It has been considered symbolic of the "breakdown of reasoned discourse"[1] that eventually led to the American Civil War.

    Bernie Sanders supporters aren’t fond of Hillary Clinton. But they really don’t like Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Democratic National Committee chairwoman and Florida lawmaker. Sanders supporters blame Wasserman Schultz for what they see as system rigged against their candidate and say he is being cheated by contests closed to independents and unfair weight to superdelegates. “I think I’m honestly starting to hate @DWStweets more than @realDonaldTrump,” one Sanders supporter tweeted on Thursday, with the hashtag #FeelTheBern. Other hashtags being used by Sanders supporters on Thursday included #DebbieDowner, #DownwithDebbie and #DumpDebbie.

    Any way you slice it, the Democratic National Convention coming up in Philadelphia in late July promise to be tumultuous.Though Hillary Clinton and the party insiders long ago expected the 2016 primary to be a formality (which conspicuously few hopefuls in the race), the grassroots voters are feverishly demanding Bernie, and vehemently against the establishment candidate who is widely known for her duplicity and dishonesty.As California Senator Diane Feinstein makes clear in this short and sweet video below, the establishment fears the riots and backlash that could come from a contested, or at least highly protested, convention as Sen. Sanders...

    Liberal commentator Van Jones on Wednesday said he'd prefer the chairman of the Republican National Committee (RNC) to his own party's chair after a "leadership failure" on the Democratic side. Jones knocked Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz for her response to Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders on Tuesday in light of the contentious Nevada Democratic convention. "Debbie, who should be the umpire, who should be the marriage counselor, is coming in harder for Hillary Clinton than she is for herself. That is malpractice," Jones told CNN's Brooke Baldwin Wednesday.

    MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski called on Debbie Wasserman Schultz to step down as chair of the Democratic Party because the Florida congresswoman is blatantly favoring Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders. Appearing on “Morning Joe” on Wednesday, Brzezinski said that Sanders treatment by the Democratic Party “has been very poorly handled from the start. It has been unfair and they haven’t taken him seriously, and it starts quite frankly with the person that we just heard speaking. It just does.” Brzezinski’s call for a change of leadership was in response to Wasserman Schultz’s criticism of Sanders from Tuesday night when she said,...

    It hasn’t been a good week for the Democrats. And despite the ongoing effort by the mainstream media to paint the Republican Party as divided and irreparably damaged by their primary process, the signs continue to emerge that Democrats are facing a much tougher task in uniting behind their incredibly unlikable and untrustworthy front-runner. The week started with a remarkable brawl convention in Nevada with blood spilled, names called and a venerable senator booed off the stage.The divisive nature of the Democrats reached a ridiculous point Tuesday afternoon with the spectacle of Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (S-VT) campaign manager promising CNN’s...

    A contentious Nevada Democratic convention this past weekend has led to a barrage of threats against the chairwoman of the state party. And it's led the party's lawyer to send a rather remarkable letter to the Democratic National Committee, warning of the risk of violent outbursts at the national convention in Philadelphia.
