Press ignores fraud case brought by 2016 Sanders backers against Democrat Party
The attorneys for 2016 supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) who are suing Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) and the Democratic National Committee for fraud say they are “perplexed” as to why the case has gotten so little coverage in the media.
“This seems like an important case, as important as you can get,” attorney Cullin O’Brien told LifeZette on Tuesday.
The class-action suit was filed on June 28, 2016, after leaked emails from the computers of the Democratic National Committee, published by hacker Guccifer 2.0, revealed the committee was working to promote the candidacy of Hillary Clinton from the very start, despite public pledges to remain neutral. In a May 2015 memo that was released, the committee laid out different methods of attack to “muddy the waters” around Clinton’s vulnerabilities, methods that included “working through the DNC” to “utilize reporters” and generating stories in the media “with no fingerprints.”
and a Google search at the end of July reveals nothing has changed since this was done,
A search on Google News for the name of the case in quotes “Wilding v. DNC” yields zero results. A search of the official name of the case, “Wilding et al. v. DNC” yields 16 results — Salon and a handful of obscure websites. No mainstream outlets either national or in Florida, where the suit was filed.
