The system is indeed rigged

Voter fraud historically has not been a big issue in the United States, but what I call 'campaign fraud' is now an issue.

An additional WikiLeaks revelation show that Hillary Clinton's campaign got even more help in advance of CNN's primary town hall debates and was tipped off to the network's polling.

The emails that were hacked from Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta and sent to WikiLeaks originally showed then-CNN contributor Donna Brazile sending two debate questions to top Clinton aides. Brazile later became the DNC Interim Chairwoman.

Brazile denied the allegations of cheating on behalf of Hillary Clinton, but another email released yesterday (Monday) showed that she had forwarded at least two additional questions to Clinton's team to give her a leg up on her opponent, and to show herself what "Stronger Together" really means.

Trump's response was a bit of a non sequitur: "She got a lot of questions at the debate," he began. "I mean, if you were at West Point and you got questions like that, they would throw you out of the school if you didn't report yourself. She didn't report it . . . She took the questions. She got the answers.

"I mean she would've been thrown out of West Point or the Air Force Academy--and here we have her running for president," Trump said.

Another WikiLeaks email depicted Brazile detailing a question that would be posed by an audience member "with a rash" before a March 6th CNN debate in Michael Moore's town of Flint, Michigan.

Brazile's role as CNN contributor was suspended when she took over Debbie Wasserman Schultz's position as interim DNC head in July. However, on October 14, after the first emails were made public, CNN accepted her full resignation and the DNC didn't do anything but congratulate her.

Of course, Brazile lied to Fox News' Megyn Kelly and denied all wrongdoing with all the indignation she could muster. She said in an Oct. 11 statement: "As it pertains to the CNN Debates, I never had access to questions and would never have shared them with the candidates if I did."

And Bill Clinton never had sex with "that woman."

 The Clinton News Network even received some DNC "brainstorming" questions for upcoming interviews of Republican presidential candidates.

"Wolf Blitzer is interviewing Trump on Tues ahead of his foreign policy address on Wed. Please send me thoughts by 10:30 AM tomorrow," Lauren Dillon, DNC research director wrote in late April.

It was apparent that CNN had direct contact with Dillon, but not with the RNC.

The same tactic was used in a Ted Cruz interview by CNN in which some of the questions were provided by the DNC. 

Dillon also wrote: "CNN is looking for questions. Please send some topical/interesting ones. Maybe a couple on Fiorina."

Trump is right when he says the system is rigged. We all knew that, but it's almost incredible just how rigged it is.
