Donna Brazile’s admission lays the way for a new wave of lawsuits against the DNC

Donna Brazile’s admission that Hillary Clinton was given full control of DNC operations, and allowed to misappropriate money meant for the campaigns of other candidates lays the way for a victory in new class-action lawsuits against the DNC.

Several attorneys filed a class-action against the DNC in early 2016. That lawsuit was dismissed by a Florida judge on August 25th.

Rumors have swirled since Hillary Clinton’s nomination about the possibility of a concerted effort to derail Sanders’ campaign. Donna Brazile’s article in Politico Magazine details Hillary Clinton’s scheme to loot more than $80M meant for down-ticket candidates and describes a DNC effort to stop Bernie Sanders from receiving the DNC’s nomination.

Brazile’s article lays out the specifics of the financial scheme that took place at the DNC; even going as far as to name names.

Unlike previous lawsuits, new lawsuits will be able to provide a timeline of how and when the DNC turned over control to Hillary Clinton.

The DNC’s defense attorney, who won dismissal in the previous lawsuit against the party, argued that the DNC has no obligation to hold primaries at all. Saying in part:

“But here, where you have a party that’s saying, We’re gonna, you know, choose our standard bearer, and we’re gonna follow these general rules of the road, which we are voluntarily deciding, we could have — and 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.”

and

“[T]here is no right to — just by virtue of making a donation, to enforce the parties’ internal rules. And there’s no right to not have your candidate disadvantaged or have another candidate advantaged. There’s no contractual obligation here.”

New lawsuits will likely center around the DNC’s misappropriation of money from down-ticket candidates, which ultimately ended up in the coffers of the Clinton Campaign. This sort of financial arrangement would almost certainly violate contractual agreements with down-ticket candidates, who will now be more emboldened than ever to step out of line with the party establishment.

In August, the Washington Post published an article entitled “In One Corner of the Internet, the 2016 Democratic primary never ended”. This article presented suits against the DNC as the result of an internet campaign by disgruntled Bernie Sanders supporters. To some extent, the sentiment expressed in the article was correct, as many that were participating in previous efforts against the DNC were indeed very public supporters of Bernie Sanders.

New lawsuits will be able to refute this notion, as they will involve the Clinton-directed financial engineering of the DNC, rather than the dozens of violations of the DNC charter’s Impartiality Clause

The critical part of the Judge’s motion to dismiss the previous lawsuit against the DNC asserts that the court is not in a position to determine how the Democratic Party conducts its nominating process. Future lawsuits against the DNC will avoid the appearance that they are attempting to have judges rule on the compliance of the DNC within their own internal rules.
