    Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez said Monday that the DNC did not give Hillary Clinton the tools she needed to succeed in 2016. "We have to make sure that whoever wins the nomination, has all the tools to succeed," Perez said on Joe Madison "The Black Eagle" on SiriusXM radio. "In other words, that we have built our organizing infrastructure, that we have built a technology infrastructure that's second-to-none, and that we have built a voter protection infrastructure that ensures that the Republican efforts to suppress voters will never succeed. And those are the infrastructure items that we are...

    Current Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez joined Chuck Todd on Meet the Press today to discuss a wide variety of issues currently facing the DNC. Not surprisingly, much of the conversation centered around former interim DNC Chairwoman Donna Brazile's new book, Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House. In Hacks, Brazile alleges that the 2016 Democratic party primary was rigged via Clinton operatives within the DNC as well as a culture of corruption that slighted Bernie Sanders' primary efforts. Perez stressed his main focus as new DNC chair was...
  • Democrat leader vows fair nominations in 2020 amid Hillary Clinton favouritism complaints

    Global News ^ | November 4, 2017 | David Shepardson, Reuters
    The head of the Democratic National Committee on Saturday vowed to ensure all candidates have an equal chance to win the Democratic presidential nomination after a former party chair accused the committee of rigging the process to aid Hillary Clinton in 2016. DNC Chairman Tom Perez said in a statement the 2020 nominating process would be “unquestionably fair and transparent.” Perez made his comments after former DNC Chairwoman Donna Brazile said in an opinion piece in Politico earlier this week that the nomination process had been “rigged” in Clinton’s favor after she signed a fundraising agreement with the DNC in...

    Ari Berman, writing in The Nation in June 2016, called election rigging a “conspiracy theory” that has been “extensively debunked.” “Outlandish claims fall apart when subjected to closer scrutiny,” Berman asserted. Dana Houle, meanwhile, wrote an article for the New Republic in July titled “No, the DNC Didn’t Rig the Primary in Favor of Hillary.” He also urged Democrats to “stop quibbling about whether the DNC rigged the nomination” and instead focus on the Russians’ ability to hack into email servers. Patrice Taylor, the DNC’s director of party affairs & delegate selection, insisted that “the election is not rigged for...

    The head of the Democratic National Committee on Tuesday mocked the Trump administration’s claim that the indictments and a guilty plea this week from members and advisers to the Republican’s 2016 campaign has nothing to do with the president, saying there is now “clear evidence” of collusion with Russia. Speaking at a breakfast sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor, Tom Perez, who took over the troubled DNC this year, said the indictments of former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and longtime associate Rick Gates, as well as the guilty plea from George Papadopoulos, who served as a foreign policy adviser, show...

    Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez spoke at Indiana University Law School this week. The name of the talk was The Lawyer’s Duty: Social Justice, Racial Justice, Economic Justice, but somehow Perez ended up discussing the Electoral College, and made a huge error in the process. “The Electoral College is not a creation of the Constitution,” Perez said. “It doesn’t have to be there.” Except, the Electoral College is in the Constitution. Right here in Article II, to be exact: Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the...

    News broke Friday night that Special Counsel Robert Mueller filed the first charges in his investigation into Russia’s alleged interference in the 2016 election. The nature of the charges are sealed by order of a federal judge. The story was leaked to reporters at CNN Pamela Brown, Evan Perez and Shimon Prokupecz authored the report. As reported earlier today Evan Perez and Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson are colleagues and have authored several “news” reports together. As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, Fusion GPS, the firm behind the ‘Trump Dossier,’ called on a judge to block House investigators from accessing...

    Chicago Tribune ^ | 1/26/17 | Kim Janssen
    **SNIP** Speaking to University of Chicago students at the university’s Institute of Politics, Perez said, “I would welcome that because sometimes I hear people say we don’t have a bench of presidential candidates, and I could not disagree with that more.” Perez didn’t identify any candidates he expected to run, though former Vice President Joe Biden, U.S. Sens. Kamala Harris and Cory Booker, and U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan have all been rumored to be considering a 2020 run. The Republicans in 2016 had 17 candidates, forcing underperforming candidates off the main stage and into a second-tier debate. A double-digit Democratic...

    We like to think of the United States Constitution as a perfect document, outlining the rule of law which forms the foundation of the Great American Experiment. And for many it is, at least in theory. But the actual printing of the document was initially riddled with errors. (You can read a nice history of those penmanship and printing problems here.) There was one episode of the West Wing which featured the possibility of an errant comma in the Takings Clause changing its entire meaning. But for the most part, it’s been fairly solidly reproduced. Or has it? Somebody needs...

    The Washington Post published a bombshell on the discredited Trump dossier on Tuesday.   As Kristinn Taylor reported earlier on The Gateway Pundit the WaPo article claims the 2016 presidential campaign of Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee paid for the Fusion GPS dossier alleging Russian ties with the presidential campaign of Republican Donald Trump and sordid phony personal smears of Trump.The Post reported that Clinton campaign and DNC lawyer Marc Elias and his law firm Perkins Coie paid Fusion GPS to continue researching Trump after a Republican donor who originally funded the research pulled out in April 2016.

    The Democratic National Committee claims its "new leadership" had nothing to do with the funding of the so-called "Trump dossier," after it was reported Tuesday that the firm behind it was hired by DNC lawyer Mark Elias and Hillary Clinton's campaign. "Tom Perez and the new leadership of the DNC were not involved in the decision-making regarding Fusion GPS, nor were they aware that Perkins Coie was working with the organization," said DNC Communications Director Xochitl Hinojosa in statement, referring to the DNC chairman. Neither Brazile nor Wasserman Schultz appear to have spoken out yet on the Washington Post report...

    In the face of scandal allegations, the normal response of Democrats is to circle the wagons and defend their comrade under fire. That’s not happening now that the dam is breaking, and people are catching on that the hysteria ginned over alleged Trump collusion was a cover, a means of deflecting attention away from the real corruption.   Both the Clinton and Obama wings of the Democrat establishment are implicated, and so are the henchmen who got the Special Counsel investigation of Trump going. So when Tom Perez, the head of the DNC ran for the hills, I took...

    Chairman of the Democratic National Committee Tom Perez took the occasion of Sen. Jeff Flake (R., Ariz.) announcing his retirement to lambast him for supporting President Donald Trump. Flake critiqued the Republican Party and Trump in a speech on the Senate floor Tuesday and received complimentary responses from many Democrats, but Perez did not go in that direction. Instead, he implicated Flake in the rise of Trump and dismissed his criticisms of the president as too little and too late from a senator who mostly voted the party line. "Senator Flake voted with Donald Trump 91% of the time," Perez...

    The mayor of Guaynabo, Puerto Rico cast serious doubt Saturday on the claims made by San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz, who has repeatedly attacked President Trump and accused him of abandoning Puerto Rico in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. Guaynabo’s mayor, Angel Perez, said in an interview with The Daily Caller that his experience with the federal government has been different from Cruz’s, in part because — unlike Cruz — he has been participating in meetings with officials from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and other federal agencies. Cruz, a Democrat, has repeatedly accused Trump and the federal...

    President Trump has nominated a slate of solid picks for the federal bench, including a new list of nominees this week. Among them is Kurt D. Engelhardt. Trump nominated Engelhardt to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, a district that covers the area from Alabama to the Rio Grande. Engelhardt already serves as a United States District Court judge in New Orleans. Engelhardt will be familiar to PJ Media readers. He is the judge who wrote a scathing 129-page order blistering the misconduct of lawyers at the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division and the local New Orleans U.S. Attorney's...

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | September 21, 2017 | Brent Scher
    The Democratic National Committee's already dire financial standing worsened during the month of August, according to its Wednesday night filing to the FEC. The DNC raised just $4.4 million last month, the second lowest August fundraising figure for the party in the past decade. The party had less cash on hand at the end of the month than it did at the beginning, as its spending outpaced its fundraising by $44,575. And it gets worse. The DNC's debt substantially increased ... Party officials predicted in August that DNC fundraising figures would start to turn around, explaining that its fundraising staff...

    RICHMOND, Va. — Tom Perez arrived early last month at a cramped Democratic campaign field office here, where a large chalkboard on a back wall blared the urgency of his visit: "Countdown to the Vote: 88." That's how many days Perez had to get Democrats riled up for Virginia's state elections. Perez delivered the sort of rousing, preacher-like speech he's known for, getting responses from volunteer phone bankers of "Amen" and "Yes." He spoke of the McCarthy era and how the country beat it back because of its "gyroscope." "Just when you think that gyroscope is spinning out of control,...

    Now we're told that some racism and supremacism is perfectly okay. Nor is the DNC troubled by the fact that its own National Chairman, Thomas Perez, who served as Assistant Attorney General for the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division during President Obama's first term, has repeatedly shown himself to be a profoundly ugly racialist. Under the rubric of “disparate impact” theory, for instance, Perez believes that bankers and mortgage lenders who reject the loan applications of blacks at a higher rate than the loan applications of whites — regardless of the reason — are akin to Klansmen. While such lenders discriminate...

    The Democratic National Committee could be leading the resistance against Trump, but it can't get out of its own way. In theory, the Democrats should be in a great position. Donald Trump has a 35 percent approval rating. The president's disdain for his Republican in the House and the Senate is making it difficult for him to pass major legislation and causing a rift within the GOP. There are more Democratic candidates preparing to run for House seats than any time in recent memory. And though Democrats have lost some high-profile special elections in 2017, they've done well in lesser...

    Former President Obama will re-emerge on the national scene this fall, though Democrats expect him to do so with caution. One aide describes the beginning of a "delicate dance" that aims to put Obama in the Democratic fray, but prevent him from remaining the face of the party. Aides will huddle with Obama in the coming weeks to plot out what shape the former president's fall schedule will take. Advisers close to him say that while he will play an active role in helping his party rebuild, much of his work will be behind the scenes. He is likely to...
