As Bernies Eyes 2020, Previous Campaign’s Demons Appear on Horizon

Bernie Sanders may live on the far left, but the ideals of his male campaign staff are straight out of the show “Mad Men”.

Elizabeth Warren has come out of the gate swinging, announcing the formation of her presidential exploratory committee before anyone else on the left had a chance to blink.

The speculation over who will end up competing for the nomination is still fairly wide open, but a few names other than Warren’s seem likely to appear in headlines soon:  Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, and Beto O’Rourke, believe it or not.

Sanders, whose bizarre exit from the 2016 primaries has been widely lambasted by the progressive left as a bit of “home cooking” by the Hillary camp, will likely lead the way for the far left to infiltrate the main stream of the DNC.

The only problem with that are the skeletons still hiding in Bernie’s closet from his last go-round.

A group of former Bernie Sanders staffers are demanding a meeting with the Vermont senator and his “top political advisers” to discuss rampant “sexual violence” they say took place on the Sanders 2016 presidential campaign.

Politico reports that in recent weeks, staffers from Sanders’ former campaign have been comparing experiences, and after a group discussion, drafted a letter to Sanders and several of his top 2016 advisers requesting time to “discuss the issue of sexual violence and harassment on the 2016 campaign, for the purpose of planning to mitigate the issue in the upcoming presidential cycle.”

The sentiment grew bolder as more statements became available.

“In recent weeks there has been an ongoing conversation on social media, in texts, and in person, about the untenable and dangerous dynamic that developed during our campaign,” the group wrote, adding that while similar issues arise on many campaigns, discrimination and harassment on Sanders’ campaign was particularly problematic given Sanders’ progressive platform and the “intense commitment” offered to his presidential effort from “women, people of color, and LGBT staffers.”

With Bernie likely the furthest left that the democratic party is willing to go, these accusations will need to be addressed, quite publicly, and with a swiftness that the democrats have seldom displayed in the past.

Dems Hold Emergency Call On Mueller Report, Plot Subpoenas, & REFUSE Classified Briefings

Just because Mueller didn’t find anything doesn’t mean Dems are done looking.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller didn’t find any connection between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russia. After two long years of searching, Mueller and team confirmed what conservatives had known from the start. And yet, that doesn’t mean Congressional Democrats are done digging for dirt. You can expect the “Russia collusion” narrative to live on as long as President Trump remains commander-in-chief – and that could be for a while longer. Now, Dems are panicking – and they are looking to make big moves. From Daily Wire: Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) called an emergency conference call of Democratic leadership Saturday afternoon to discuss how to proceed amid news that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials, may not result in a presidential indictment. “Today, we are having an emergency Caucus conference call at 3:00 p.m. E.T. to discuss the transmittal of the Mueller report to the Department of Justice (DOJ),” Pelosi wrote in a letter to colleagues issued Saturday morning, “While we do not know the substance of the report, we will have the relevant Committees of jurisdiction on the call today to update Members on where we go from here.” […] Pelosi also made clear, in her letter ahead of the call, that Democrats do not intend to let the issue of Russian collusion go, even if Mueller’s report — as suspected — shows no evidence of actual collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials to impact the outcome of the 2016 Presidential election. Fox News host Chris Wallace isn’t exactly 100% pro-Trump. There are times he’s in 45’s corner, and there are times he’s not. It is what it is. At the very least, Fox News can definitively say they are “fair and balanced” in that they provide…

WATCH: Ilhan Omar Encourages Muslim Crowd to ‘Raise Hell, Make People Uncomfortable’

WHOA!!

Freshman Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar has raised plenty of hell on her own. Her anti-Israel leanings are abundantly clear. Now, Omar has encouraged Muslims to “raise hell” and “make people uncomfortable.” And no, that’s not a typo. She actually said that. From The Blaze: Controversial freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) encouraged some 400 Los Angeles-area Muslims Saturday to “raise hell” and stand defiant in the face of what she characterized as rampant discrimination against the Muslim community. Omar’s comments came during a fundraising event for the Los Angeles chapter of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations. She was one of several keynote speakers. Omar said, “I say raise hell, make people uncomfortable. Because here’s the truth. For far too long, we have lived with the discomfort of living as second class citizens, and frankly I’m tired of it and every single Muslim in this country should be tired of it.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1109843664862355461?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1109843664862355461&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.theblaze.com%2Fres%2Fcommunity%2Ftwitter_embed%2F%3Fiframe_id%3Dtwitter-embed-1109843664862355461%26created_ts%3D1553442324.0%26screen_name%3DRealSaavedra%26text%3DRep.%2BIlhan%2BOmar%2B%2528D-MN%2529%2Bclaims%2Bthat%2BMuslims%2Bin%2Bthe%2BU.S.%2Bare%2B%25E2%2580%259Csecond-class%2Bcitizens%252C%25E2%2580%259D%2Bencourages%2Bthem%2Bto%2B%25E2%2580%259Craise%2Bhell%252C%25E2%2580%25A6%2Bhttps%253A%252F%252Ft.co%252Fhd09lCwouI%26id%3D1109843664862355461%26name%3DRyan%2BSaavedra Omar then targeted President Trump: https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1109867487787544576?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1109867487787544576&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.theblaze.com%2Fres%2Fcommunity%2Ftwitter_embed%2F%3Fiframe_id%3Dtwitter-embed-1109867487787544576%26created_ts%3D1553448004.0%26screen_name%3DRealSaavedra%26text%3DIlhan%2BOmar%2Bsuggests%2BTrump%2Bis%2Bresponsible%2Bfor%2Bviolence%2Bagainst%2BMuslims%2Bworldwide%2Band%2Bthat%2Bhe%2Bis%2Bintentionally%2Bsendin%25E2%2580%25A6%2Bhttps%253A%252F%252Ft.co%252FscXf38C68P%26id%3D1109867487787544576%26name%3DRyan%2BSaavedra Ilhan could also care less about what pro-Israel protesters have to say. https://twitter.com/AdamMilstein/status/1109604130899849216?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1109604130899849216&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F45045%2Filhan-omar-trashes-pro-israel-protesters-could-ryan-saavedra WATCH: https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1109862805224644608?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1109862805224644608&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F45045%2Filhan-omar-trashes-pro-israel-protesters-could-ryan-saavedra South Carolina Congressman James Clyburn is one of the top Democrats in the House. He literally just insulted all Jewish Americans in one swoop in order to defend Omar, the freshman lawmaker with the wildly anti-Semitic history. Why do this? Who knows? Here are the details… From The Hill: Clyburn came to Omar’s defense Wednesday, lamenting that many of the media reports surrounding the recent controversy have omitted mentioning that Omar, who was born in Somalia, had to flee the country to escape violence and spent four years in a Kenyan refugee camp before coming to the United States. Her experience, Clyburn argued, is much more empirical — and powerful — than that of people who are generations removed from the Holocaust, Japanese internment camps during World…
