HomeNews WireTulsi Gabbard Tries To Pull A"Trump" Move, Says DNC Is Rigging Debates AGAIN Editor December 14, 2019 Tulsi Gabbard is contemplating boycotting the Democratic presidential debate on October 15 while at the same time, accusing the Democratic National Committee and the mainstream media of “rigging” the 2020 primary elections much as they did with Bernie Sander in 2016. Gabbard said, “The DNC and corporate media are trying to hijack the entire election process. In order to bring attention to this serious threat to our democracy, and ensure your voice is heard, I am giving serious consideration to boycotting the next debate on October 15th.” This sounds exactly like she's trying to pull a move that Donald Trump did when he skipped the debates. The problem is she's not Donald Trump. She doesn't have a fraction of the amount of support that he did back in 2016. I am seriously considering boycotting October 15 debate to bring attention to DNC/corporate media’s effort to rig 2020 primary. Not against Bernie this time, but against voters in early states Iowa, New Hampshire, South… –> https://t.co/x5P3GFGbyn pic.twitter.com/UgKCj6DGI0 — Tulsi Gabbard (@TulsiGabbard) October 10, 2019 One Twitter (among others) criticized her ploy saying, "Putin's puppet is using the same boring line Bernie use in 2016. Just because no one supports you doesn't mean the election is rigged – it means people don't buy your BS. Like Jill Stein, this crackpot will probably try to run 3rd party and be a spoiler." @ScottNevins Putin's puppet is using the same boring line Bernie use in 2016.

Scott actually is wrong here though about the 2016 election with Bernie Sanders, it was rigged. Donna Brazile who is a Democrat and former DNC Chairwoman ADMITTED that it was rigged in favor of Hillary Clinton. Brazile wrote in a Polito piece, I had promised Bernie when I took the helm of the Democratic National Committee after the convention that I would get to the bottom of whether Hillary Clinton’s team had rigged the nomination process, as a cache of emails stolen by Russian hackers and posted online had suggested. I’d had my suspicions from the moment I walked in the door of the DNC a month or so earlier, based on the leaked emails. But who knew if some of them might have been forged? I needed to have solid proof, and so did Bernie. So I followed the money. My predecessor, Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, had not been the most active chair in fundraising at a time when President Barack Obama’s neglect had left the party in significant debt. As Hillary’s campaign gained momentum, she resolved the party’s debt and put it on a starvation diet. It had become dependent on her campaign for survival, for which she expected to wield control of its operations. Debbie was not a good manager. She hadn’t been very interested in controlling the party—she let Clinton’s headquarters in Brooklyn do as it desired so she didn’t have to inform the party officers how bad the situation was. How much control Brooklyn had and for how long was still something I had been trying to uncover for the last few weeks. By September 7, the day I called Bernie, I had found my proof and it broke my heart.
