Sanders Campaign Again Asks Clinton Campaign to Join Call for DNC Probe

Bernie Featured 2

Bernie Sanders’ campaign on Monday renewed its call for Hillary Clinton’s campaign to join in requesting an investigation of firewall failures in voter databases maintained by the Democratic National Committee.

“As the Clinton campaign knows, this is not the first firewall failure at the DNC. There was at least one other failure two months ago that we discovered and reported. Failures like these open the possibility for data access by any campaign,” Sanders spokesman Michael Briggs said.

During Saturday’s debate, Sanders asked Clinton to join with an investigation into the DNC.

“We hope the Clinton campaign will join us in calling for a thorough, independent investigation starting from Day One in the campaign to review all possible data security failures that may have occurred at the DNC,” the spokesman added.

    Good! When a glitch in the system occurred previously, the Sanders campaign responded by taking the high road; addressing the issue privately and directly with NGP VAN and the DNC; refusing to exploit it for its illicit shock value.

    When it (inevitably) happened again, Debbie Wasserman Schultz decided to make it a public issue, exploiting it as a pretext for try to take out the Sanders campaign at the knees. The Clinton campaign went along…and piled on accordingly. Bernie tried to be the nice guy. But DWS and HRC want to play hardball. OK. Just so we know where we now stand.

    That makes it fair game. It was brilliant of Bernie to bring it up at the debate, putting Hillary on the spot to support an independent audit, on live nationwide television. And it’s absolutely fair of him to continue to press the Clinton campaign…until they either go along, thereby embarrassing themselves for exploiting a scenario in which they themselves have enjoyed an illicit advantage…OR take a big hit to their (already damaged) public reputation, by refusing to honor Hillary’s commitment – thereby reinforcing Hillary’s well-established reputation for dishonesty and untrustworthiness. Or as I like to call it, a win-win.

    Sorry, Debbie. Sorry, Hillary. But you started this. This was a fight that YOU chose. Now watch as the Sanders campaign shoves it right back into your faces…so you have no choice but to own it. Unlike you two, Bernie is a class act. And Bernie is going to win. He is going to kill you – with decency and civility.

        Absolutely it’s fair game and the right thing to do.

          Bernie is a class individual. SHILLARY & DWS aren’t. Enough said.

    I have been receiving emails from the Hillary Clinton campaign for months now. I have NEVER subscribed to ANYTHING involving Mrs. Clinton. A number of my facebook friends have expressed this same concern. I cannot help but wonder if the Clinton campaign illegally obtained my contact information during one of the data breeches.

    Time to stand up to dirty politics. Blow this thing wide open.

    Go Bernie. I support your efforts for a full and complete investigation into the DNC and its firewall isdues.
