Trump campaign: Leaked DNC emails prove system is ‘rigged’

by Jessie Hellmann | The Hill  |  published on July 25, 2016


Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s campaign chairman said Sunday that the Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) leaked emails show the party favored presumptive presidential nominee Hillary Clinton from the start.

“What’s in those emails show it was clearly a rigged system,” Paul Manafort said on ABC’s “This Week.”

“Bernie Sanders never had a chance, and frankly, I think you’re going to see some of that resentment boil over this week [at the Democratic National Convention] in Philly.”

Emails from within the DNC leaked by WikiLeaks Friday showed party officials privately planned how to undermine the Vermont senator’s presidential campaign.

    This is probably the best gift Donald could get. The dems just wrapped it up and handed it to him. This democratic party is bleeding desperation. I love the way Bernie Sanders supporters booed Schultz right off the stage today too. Those rascally Russians shure know how to throw a party and they didn’t even have to be there.

    The Democrat Party is a corrupt party. They cheated their own members out of their right to vote. If corrupt Hillary is elected the same thing will happen to America.

    The Democrat Party is corrupt. The best way for voters to send a message to the corrupt party leadership is to vote Republican in November. Once the Democrats suffer a massive loss there will be a house cleaning in the party. If the Democrats purge their corrupt leadership structure our country may be able to escape the dysfunctionalism hoisted on us by party insiders.

    HITLER HILLARY< HITLER HILLARY. That's what the DEMOS will be hollering at there convention. They should be saying: LOCK HER UP.

    There are so many heads in the sand, we should be growing cacti out of our asses!

  • Rob Waddell

    The Internet has been a tool for our destruction! We get on here and we puff our chest up, and we type, what we SHOULD DO!! The Internet is a modern tool out of Adolph Hitlers, Nazi Manual! Adolph Hitler, first had to manipulate the citizens by controling the media, he had to make speeches all across Germany, and he had to muzzle any and all arguments against him! He brain-washed, the entire country, and he indoctrinated the young! He had all of them behind him! That is powerful, and if it weren’t for Fox News, and a few radio stations, we would be the same way! Look at our choices for POTUS, after Obama fooled red-blooded Americans, not once, but twice, he has broken us financially, our military depleted, homosexuals, lesbians, and transgendered, human beings are our military! Our borders don’t need guards because they have been told to stand down! Obama told the world, “America is not a Christian Nation!” Obama sent John Kerry and Bill Ayers over to Israel, with our tax-dollars, in an effort to over throw Mr. Netanyahu! They were found out! We have citizens murdering police officers! Obama has printing presses running 24/7 making counterfeit money! Now, his time is nearly over, and who do we have as his replacement? Hillary Clinton, a criminal, pathological liar, who not only left four Americans to be raped, tortured, killed, then burned, she also held the hand of their family, looked them in the eyes, and told them a far fetched lie! The Clintons have been a criminal network for years, and a lot of politicians are weaved into that web, who are now being black-mailed, by the Clintons! Our government had Justice Scalia, murdered! You have to be a complete imbecile to think otherwise! Ok, then you have Trump! He isn’t a perfect candidate, but if we don’t get him elected we are done! All of this could have been different had “We The People” not been spineless cowards!

    Not only does it show how easily the DNC computer was hacked but how much easier the hildabeast computer was hacked. You can be sure that the DNC had far more security on there computer than the hildabeast had on hers. I find it unbelievable how far America has fallen and so many are willing to put one of these criminals in the WH.

    • Papa Bear

      A significant number of those who put him in office have been feeding off of the government teat so long that they know no other way and that is EXACTLY what LBJ planned when he started his “War on Poverty” over 50 years ago. What a joke that has done nothing but suck up many trillions of American’s hard earned dollars only to leave the poor poorer and the politicians richer.

      • 7papa7

        The only thing the war on poverty is to have made America more impoverished.

        • Papa Bear

          Agreed, now the question stands that what can really be done to actually help the situation. Regardless of the answers, it will not be a pretty picture for many who have become accustomed to feeding off of the government teat for so long.

          • 7papa7

            Reduce benefits every year by about 20% until they are weaned. It won’t happen over night but it will within a few years. That will not include people who are disabled to the point of not being able to work etc. There will be a small percentage, very small, who would be excused from the reduction.

          • Papa Bear

            I have always been a proponent of the five year plan for all assistance programs and no “extra” benefits for more than two, maybe three children plus do away with the earned income tax credit for those who do not work or pay anything into the system to begin with.

          • 7papa7

            IMO you can not get more in taxes than you pay in to the system. If you don’t pay anything in then you don’t get anything back. I have seen returns that nothing was paid in but they were getting back $10-12K. Basically they were ripping off the ones who work hard and actually pay taxes.

          • Shelly Shannon

            That has to be one of my biggest pet peeves of all. My mom used to be on the brain injury program here in illinois. I was her care giver and took care of her until she recovered. When I would take my hours down to the social services office, I would see people dressed in designer jeans, 200 dollar Nike sneakers, leather jackets, and expensive jewelry on. Their kids would have on expensive outfits and looked like they just came out of the Baby Gap. Outside they would get into very expensive cars. They would all be there waiting for their food stamps or money. Talk about abuse of the system. Trump is right. Clean up this part of government and you could build two walls.

          • VALERIE FALK

            ReInstitute the draft again and send them to patrol the border. Will clean up the street corners and alleys also. DOUBLE WIN FOR THE USA.

          • Shelly Shannon

            Not a bad idea!

    • Shelly Shannon

      You know what they say…Dance with the devil, the devil doesn’t change, the devil changes you. Hillary Clinton should wear this on a sign around her neck. It is so befitting for her.

      • 7papa7

        The hildabeast is doing far more than just dancing with the devil.

        • Shelly Shannon

          This is true! You know what is sad? I have been into discussions lately with democrats who are voting for Clinton. They don’t even know why. Even when I lay out documented democratic history and it’s corruption as far back as the 1800’s and compare it to now, they still don’t believe it, but are not willing to even research it. Very sad.

          • 7papa7

            I would say at least half of the people who vote don’t know why they are voting for a person and that is on both sides of the aisle. I know if I can not clearly explain why I am voting for someone or against someone I probably should not be voting.

          • Shelly Shannon

            I agree with you there, but my point is that history is important. I think it is so sad to talk to an African American that believes that republicans started the slavery trade when it was actually Jefferson who founded the democratic party. And nearly every democratic president had slaves. Not one republican president did, but that’s not the input I got. It is sad that African Americans believe that republicans were the ones who took their civil rights away. It wasnt, it was republicans that passed the bill that gave African Americans the same rights as whites. All I’m saying is that if people want to vote for their freedoms and liberties then they should learn about the history of the party their voting for. I want everyone to be treated fairly and I just believe you should really understand what those freedoms and liberties are about before you vote.

          • 7papa7

            History is important. They need to check it out for themselves. It makes it difficult when they are taught lies in school from K-College. Most students are very lazy and accept what they are told from the teachers/professors. They have lost all initiative to check it out on there own so this is what you get.

          • Shelly Shannon

            I know, your right. It’s still sad tho.

  • Rob Waddell

    “We The People” are hypocrites, and cowards! Obama has strutted his skinny ass around, telling us what he was going to do, and he has done it! He is a lawless leader of America! He has written so many laws by going around Congress, and struck deals with our worst enemy Iran, who by the way shouts from the rooftops, “Death To Israel”, and “Death To America!” John Kerry took James Taylor over to Iran to sing them love songs! People, that is Treason! Look it up! Yet, “We The People” do nothing! We don’t mind shouting the fact that “We The People” run this country, (not the politicians!) as we sit idly by, watching America crumble! Was everything our forefathers did in vain? Did they die for nothing? Did they pass the torch to brave men such as they were? Were there efforts wasted on us? Because our forefathers didn’t have the Internet, they didn’t even have telephones, yet they gathered to fight! War, is never glamorous, it is never wanted, it is never fearless, they were afraid, they had better things to do, yet they stepped up! We talk about our heritage, we talk about our independence, we talk about our freedom, but we shy in comparison, we are passive, cowards! Yes, it is 2016, yes, we are civilized, and yes, the the threat is still, the same threat! The outcome, of doing nothing is the same outcome as if our forefathers had done nothing!

  • Rob Waddell

    I am an NRA member, I am a DU member, I was born here, I own my share of guns, I will never give up! I also feel like a resounding gong, by repeatedly defending a right, and passionately do so, but there comes a time to use that right, and if we don’t, then why do we need it? The house is burning down, fire extinguishers everywhere, yet we don’t use them!

  • Rob Waddell

    Criminal POTUS, Criminal AG, Criminal DNC, Criminal Democratic Nominee, how can we as citizens stay passive? We deserve better! You can talk til you’re blue in the face about the Constitution, and how we need to protect it, talk about the 2nd Amendments God, given right to keep, and bear arms, as an inalienable right to fight tyrrany, but how can we continue to fight for that right, and not use it! Look up Tyrrany, we are under siege by a tyrranical POTUS, surrounded by criminals, the 2nd Amendment gives us the right to fight tyrrany, but we sit idly by as cowards, and rail about how important the 2nd Amendment is, only we don’t take advantage of it! If we fail to use it, why fight for it? In case you don’t realize it, this is the perfect time to use it, it doesn’t get more corrupt than this!

    • Papa Bear

      We deserve nothing but what we are willing to accept. We need to be more demanding of just what we will accept from our politicians and that should be nothing short of honesty and integrity in all of their work representing us.

  • Dan

    If the Russians have hacked the DNC, you have to figure they hacked Hillary’s home-brew non-secure server.

    • bobnstuff

      The DNC uses the same basic firewall system as the government, Hillary had a much better system in place, not hard to do since the government system has been hacked over and over again.

      • Rob Waddell

        Google is a better system than Hillary had!

        • bobnstuff

          Did you know that the government has systems still in use that use floppy disks. Our government has a problem with anything Tech.

          • Papa Bear

            Except when it comes to tracking their enemies. They will use whatever electronic sources they can muster to do that without fail. Hell, those floppy discs are probably more secure than Hillary’s server in her basement was.

          • bobnstuff

            Say what you want but there has been no proof that she was hacked unlike just about every department of the government.

          • Papa Bear

            We’re just going to have to agree to disagree is all.

          • Shelly Shannon

            It doesn’t matter if she was hacked or not. The whole point is that the FBI came right out and said the other things she did were against the law. Let’s face it…If the secretary of state was that irresponsible to do the things she did then she is guilty weather or not she got hacked. She put us all at risk and was just lucky if she didn’t get hacked.

          • bobnstuff

            Sorry you need to go see what the FBI said not what you were told they said. There was nothing they could prosecute. It would be one thing if she had been the first to do such a thing, and there could have been a problem which is what the FBI basically said but had she really broken the law it would have been different. Do you get this upset when others do these things or is it just Clinton. There has been a long list of others using private servers to do government business.

    • PC Bob

      Yes, LONG before now!

  • bobnstuff

    Am I the only one who remembers what was being said publicly in May when most of these Emails were sent? The democrats were saying publicly about the same things that are in the leaked Email. Bernie was out of it by then but he kept on going. He never had a real chance by then, and he held on just to feed his ego.

    • Papa Bear

      Just shows that they not only plotted it all put actually put it into action during the campaign. This kind of stuff and worse has been going on for over 50 years in the Democratic Party.

      • bobnstuff

        Isn’t this the same complaints the republicans were making a short time ago?

        • Papa Bear

          The establishment Republicans are the JV team at those kind of tactics. All of the posturing that the establishment Republicans tried this season blew up in their faces big time and rightfully so.

          • bobnstuff

            Do you remember the election in 2012 when the republicans tried to fix the vote in Ohio but didn’t stuff the box enough and lost anyway.

          • Papa Bear

            I heard rumors of that but no one ever came forth with the proof that it actually happened and I’m sure that if there were proof of the Republicans doing so that the MSM would have been all over it. Or perhaps they just didn’t it to come out that the Democrats were much more successful at doing the same thing as they have been doing for over 50 years. Hell, my grandfather voted twice after he passed away in 1970 but I made damn sure he didn’t vote again in 1980 lmao.

          • bobnstuff

            http://www.salon.com/2012/11/05/ohio_republicans_sneak_risky_software_onto_voting_machines/
            If there is a problem with voter fraud, which I don’t believe there is, the way to fix it isn’t with voter ID’s since with computers the vote can be fixed anyway. If you want to keep dead people from voting get the people that issues death certificates to send a copy to the board of elections. A national voters registry would also help so that when someone registered to vote their old registration would be deleted.

          • Papa Bear

            That article is just a lot of huffing and puffing about would haves and could haves. Nothing was ever shown that there was any type successful rigging of any votes by the Republican Party. And again, if there had actually been REAL proof that there had been, the MSM would have been all over it and we would have never heard the end of it until Bush resigned … kinda like what the Democrats and the MSM did to Nixon in 1974 and what Nixon simply may have had knowledge of was NOTHING compared to what the Democrats had already been doing for decades. Don’t forget, they crucified Nixon not because he actually had knowledge of the actions of his people but rather that he SHOULD HAVE KNOWN what his people were up to.

          • bobnstuff

            Funny I remember Nixon covering up for a crime that his people did. It was a real crime not a made up one like the right keep trying to nail Hillary with. I don’t like the new voting machines, I know enough about computers to know that they can be rigged and there has been a history of problems with them.

          • Papa Bear

            But electronic voting is the “progressive” way in elections and were very highly touted by Democrats probably because they already knew that it would make their election fraud tactics a lot easier than it was back in the old days of the lever machines. Computer voting should ALWAYS be backed up by paper ballots but the Democratic Party says that it is a waste of natural resources to do so when in reality it would only lead to them being found out down the line in a recount.

          • Papa Bear

            Funny how Nixon’s actions were considered a crime worthy of ruining the man but LBJ, Clinton, Obama and Hillary’s actions are totally acceptable and are just being done for the common good. What a bunch of horse crap!

          • bobnstuff

            Nixon tried to cover up a break in, a real crime that had real evidence. He got caught red handed.

          • Papa Bear

            Just going to have to agree to disagree on that as well. You are entitled to your opinion on the matter but just the fact that you only want to believe the MSM version of what really happened shows how one sided you are about this at least.

    • Bill Hartman

      I suspect he kept going (1) because his followers seemed to want him to and (2) in the hope that Hillary would be forced to withdraw due to some revelation. No real downside for him.

  • Papa Bear

    Gotta Love it … now the Democrats are blaming the Russians for releasing those emails about the rigging of the Democratic primary race. How DARE those dastardly Russians expose Democratic corruption! Wonder if Hillary will want her reset button back now?

    • bobnstuff

      Isn’t it nice that they waited to do it till it could help their good friend Donald the most.

      • Papa Bear

        I have a sneaking hunch that Russia isn’t exactly calling Trump their “friend” and I have no illusions that Trump wants to be their “friend” and I am sure that he would NEVER kiss their behinds like Obama and Hillary have done over the past 7+ years.

        • bobnstuff

          Do you read the news, Putin and Trump have a bromance going. Trump is saying he would weaken NATO which makes Putin very happy. Russia hasn’t had a friend like Trump for a hundred years.

          • Papa Bear

            Just makes me wonder where you are getting your news my friend. Trump has absolutely no desire to “weaken” NATO. His proposals would make other NATO nations pull their fair share as well as they can and would actually make NATO a much stronger force to be dealt with down the road.

          • bobnstuff
          • Papa Bear

            Typical political spin by the Democratic MSM. They only comment on “what they hear” but the problem is that they are either very hard of hearing or just don’t pay attention to entire text of what was said nor to exactly what was said, just their spin on what was said.

            The list goes on and on, Trump is Putin’s choice. Trump likes Putin’s style. The only two world leaders that like Trump are Putin and Kim.

          • Papa Bear

            Don’t believe they are singing the same tune now as they were back in December and April.

          • PC Bob

            Exactly WHAT power will Trump have over NATO? It isn’t run by America! He will NOT be the Emperor of the entire world, either! Even if he DOES ‘win’ the election ion November!

          • Papa Bear

            That was exactly part of Mr. Trump’s point. America foots the vast majority of the NATO bill with little or no say on how things are conducted. Let the ones who foot most of the bills be the deciders of how things are done. Same goes for the UN situation.

        • Shelly Shannon

          Yeah, I can’t imagine Trump actually being pen pals with Vladimir. Your right, Trump would never kiss his butt.

      In typical Hillary fashion, she will shift the blame for this onto the Russians and Donald Trump and some kind of “conspiracy”, rather than be concerned that it was her crooked ways that CAUSED this to happen. She got caught (again), yet somehow none of this is her fault.

  • TeaPartyPatriot

    .
    I could give a rat’s ass less about the D’generate primaries and how they cheat their constituents.

    My concern is that they are just using this as a warm up and practice on how to cheat in the general election like they did in the Minn election to get freak joker franken elected and the 0webomb euthanasia/genocide bill passed.
    .
    If the conservatives are not alert at every polling station they will cheat and that is a given. They have proven they have vast experience in cheating.

    • Papa Bear

      Good Riddance DWS. She is a disgrace to Florida politics and should leave Florida too. I would be happy to personally give her a good boot in the behind as she crosses the border into Alabama (Georgia wouldn’t let her in) as she leaves.

      • regulus30

        HEY NOW; don’t give her to Alabama, she should live in Californie.

        • Papa Bear

          I agree, sorry Alabama but not to worry. She would probably sail right over and make it to Louisiana with the kick in the ass that I would like to give her. Maybe we could form a chain and get her out to California before she has a chance to set down roots and do anymore harm along the way lmao
