Bernie Sanders supporters have been complaining for months that the Democratic Party’s primary process was rigged in favor of Hillary Clinton and now there’s more evidence which shows that’s true.

Leaked document shows the DNC wanted Clinton from start
A document leaked by a hacker who took responsibility for the Democratic National Committee data breach appears to show the DNC coordinating with Hillary Clinton from the start of the presidential campaign — just as Bernie Sanders has claimed.
A document to the DNC dated May 26, 2015 – a month after Sanders kicked off his presidential bid — declared that “our goals & strategy” are to “provide a contrast between the GOP field and HRC.”
HRC stands for Hillary Rodham Clinton.
The document, posted online by the hacker “Guccifer 2.0,” outlines ways to hit back at the GOP presidential field, such as “use specific hits to muddy the waters around ethics, transparency and campaign finance attacks on HRC.”
The author of the document is not listed. The DNC stayed officially neutral during the prolonged primary between Clinton and Sanders.
But some Sanders backers say the document shows what they’ve felt all along: the system was rigged in favor of Clinton.
“With proof that #Bernie never even had a chance, I shall double down and vote #BernieOrBust in Nov. @TheDemocrats,” tweeted a Sanders supporter from Chicago.
Hillary Clinton is so popular that her party had to rig the contest in her favor.
What a symbol of their confidence in her chances.
