Of course the media is keeping it quiet while they attack Trump for what he didn't say in Saudi Arabia and for messing up the word 'ethnicity' when he read it off the TelePrompter after a long, tiring flight.
The media doesn't want to talk about the lawsuit against the Democratic Party as it continues to play out in the courts claiming in one instance that the Clinton campaign had a coordinated effort with the DNC against Sanders.
The case is being heard in a Florida courtroom (or as Sanders says, 'Cawtroom') and dates back to last June when the DNC got nailed colluding with the Clinton campaign after documents were leaked appearing to show DNC officials seeking to undermine the old socialist with three houses.
The lawsuit, filed by Jared Beck, a Harvard law expert, includes residents of 45 states and goes against the DNC and Debbie Wasserman Schultz, its former chairwoman.
The DNC desperately wants the case dismissed and last year was able to get a small victory when it was decided the plaintiffs improperly filed paperwork.
Beck (no relation to Glenn) is demanding the party repay individuals and Sanders supporters for contributions they made during the election, and is alleging misappropriation of funds.
"If we can't trust the two political parties to run an election in a fair manner, who can we trust?" he told Fox News, as he somehow brought the GOP into the situation in which they we not involved.
Bruce Spiva, a shyster lawyer for the DNC, argued in its motion to dismiss that the Democratic Party holds the right to select its candidate any way it chooses and isn't bound by pledges of fairness.
That ought to put a smile on the faces of Schultz and Hillary--they hate fairness. And screw 'pledges;' they're merely promises.
Spiva, who used to steal coins from his mother's purse, argued, "We could have voluntarily decided that, 'Look, we're gonna go into back rooms like they used to and smoke cigars and pick the candidate that way.' That's not the way it was done. But they could have. And that would have also been their right."
The DNC deserves him.
In spite of the fact that Article 5, Section 4 of the Democratic Party charter stipulates that it will function with total neutrality during Democratic primaries, Spiva argued the promise was non-binding.
"And there's no right to not have your candidate disadvantaged or have another candidate advantaged. There's no contractual obligation here," Spiva said.
Spiva means 'sleep' in Bulgarian, but it must mean 'snake' in another language.
"This lawsuit has nothing to do with politics or political disagreements within the DNC. This case should concern everyone because it goes to the heart of the country's democratic institutions," Beck said.
According to law experts and my source, Vinny, Beck faces a tough climb if he is to win this case.
"I don't think it is going to amount to much," Michael Toner, an attorney with Wiley-Rein and former legal counsel for the RNC.
"Courts don't typically get in the middle of intra-party disputes and while I'm sure the DNC does not appreciate having to fight this lawsuit, judges are very reluctant to exercise their jurisdiction over politics," Toner said.
The DNC shysters also say the suit is meritless, much like the GOP's contention that the classified emails on Hillary Clinton's illegal private email server did not merit further investigation.
"The vast majority of whom almost certainly do not share Plaintiff's political views--have no realistic means of disassociating from this action, brought in their name against the political party they likely support," a mind reading expert and DNC lawyer wrote.
In another case against the DNC ("Do Not Care" party) plaintiff's who worked for them the DNC allege they failed to pay overtime wages during the campaign which they lost miserably.
Toner said the danger to the DNC would come if the lawsuit of the Sanders case entered the discovery phase. Both cases pose a potentially dangerous threat to the party that lost to a TV personality.
The DNC filed a motion to dismiss the second class-action suit alleging those workers were not paid a minimum wage, while others were refused overtime compensation guaranteed by federal and state law.
So even their own socialist-leaning party that fights for a $15 minimum wage refuses to pay their own workers at that rate.
You can't make these jokes up.
