Trump Accuses Hillary Of "Colluding" With Democrats "To Beat Crazy Bernie Sanders"

It is Sunday morning, and Trump celebrated the start of the new week with a tweet at exactly 8 am EDT in which the president lashed out against both Hillary Clinton and the Democratic party, accusing them of colluding to "beat Crazy Bernie Sanders." 

“Hillary Clinton colluded with the Democratic Party in order to beat Crazy Bernie Sanders. Is she allowed to so collude? Unfair to Bernie!” Trump said.

Trump is referring to the disclosures that emerged last summer when it was revealed by email leaks from hacker Guccifer 2.0 that the DNC had colluded with the Clinton campaign to prevent Bernie from winning the Democratic primary.

It's not the first time Trump has accused the Democrats of cheating Sanders out of the nomination, although today's tweet comes amid probes ongoing probes into Russian meddling into the presidential election and possible collusion between Trump's campaign and Moscow.

In an interview airing Sunday on Fox and Friends Weekend, Trump blasted Barack Obama over Russia's interference, accusing Obama of doing “nothing” before the election.

“Well I just heard today for the first time that Obama knew about Russia a long time before the election, and he did nothing about it. But nobody wants to talk about that,” Trump said in an interview airing in full Sunday on “Fox and Friends Weekend.”

“The CIA gave him information on Russia a long time before they even -- before the election. And I hardly see it. It's an amazing thing," Trump continued. "In other words, the question is, if he had the information, why didn't he do something about it? He should have done something about it.  But you don't read that. It's quite sad," Trump said.

On Saturday evening, Trump mused some more on this topic when he tweeted that "Obama Administration official said they "choked" when it came to acting on Russian meddling of election. They didn't want to hurt Hillary?"


Sensing a shift in sentiment - as reported yesterday, angry grassroots Democrats are increasingly turning on leaders such as Obama, Pelosi, Schumer with demands that they "talk less about Russia" and focus on core economic issues instead. Needless to say, nothing could make Trump happier than to put the Russian scandal in the past, especially if he can do it while redirecting attention to his arch-nemesis, Hillary Clinton.

As for Bernie Sanders, we doubt he will care much about what Trump has to say. As reported yesterday, the Vermont senator and his wife, who are now under investigation for bank fraud, have far bigger problems on their heads than a Trump tweet.

Bernie has been part of the plan since the start... ZH ran an article during the election about how both parties always have one of these opponents, either on the far left or right... to push things... that was Uncle Bernie's role... same as Jessie Jackson etc through the ages.

"Hillary Clinton colluded with the Democratic Party in order to beat Crazy Bernie Sanders."100% true, but Bernie might have won the election, it was the hatred of the evil witch which got Trump over the line.

Excellent article!What the Deep State doesn't realize that concerned citizens like the author and some of us here are actually noticing what is going on. The turning point for me came when Bill Clinton met with Loretta Lynch on that tarmac last year. He and Shilarie knew their political careers were over but that they could still rule over the Deep State - who needs to bother with winning elections when you can rule from the shadows? You can't rule a Deep State from prison, however (unless you are in with the Cartels - more about that later) so Bill made a deal with Lynch to allow Shilarie to go free so they could rule the US through the DS. Now, about those cartels: The Mexican drug cartels basically own AG Jeff Sessions and Trump. The wall and other anti-Mex rhetoric is just that - rhetoric used as a false flag to allow a system of tunnels to be constructed under the US-Mex border during wall construction. When the wall is built (and it will be), expect lots of security/secrecy concerning its construction. Tunnels will be excavated while the work is described as "laying footings" or "foundations". With much of the wall in remote areas, tunnel excavation will go undetected. Trump has a connection with the Sinaloa cartel (more about the origins of that later). Trump is planning yet another escape for Joaquin "El Chappo" Guzman from the NYC facility where he is being held.  Why? Because Guzman funnels billions of dollars to Trump for access to the US drug market (the largest in the world). Trump has sent his minions to the NYC facility where Guzman is being held to plan the wall. The next step: enslavement of the poor and middle class to a life of drug addiction. This is a high priority to AG Jeff Sessions. AG Sessions and Trump want not only the riches from Sinaloa kickbacks for access to the lucrative US drug market but they also want the power gained from suppressing any resistance poor and middle class folks can muster to overthrow them.  Here's where it gets surprising: Trump, Sessions and Janet Yellen are all tools of the Deep State that is working with Putin to bring Trump down. Putin and Obama rigged the 2016 election to get Trump elected in an alliance that will eventually rule the world after Trump is overthrown by the Deep State consisting of Democrats, the Republican congress, Hollywood, the Vatican and the news media. Once this happens, expect Obama, Bill and Hillarie Clinton, Guzman (who will betray Sessions and Trump) and Hollywood types like Sean Penn, Barry Diller, Kathy Griffin, Oprah and Johnny Depp to assume control of the US government. We will have a country of drug-addled poor and middle-class zombies enslaved to a quasi-shadow government of celebrities and Clinton/Obama sycophants. They will use the military to seize property and imprison Trump, Sessions, Sheriff Clark, Vice-President Nugent (more about that later) and all others who resist. Drug addiction, crime and sodomy will be accepted as a way of life/survival while democracy, gun ownership, religion and human decency will be just a memory. But this can be stopped dead in its tracks. How? The key players in this are Pope Francis, Guzman, Putin, the Obamas and the Clintons. What do they all have in common? Donald Trump. With the exception of Obama, Trump or his affiliates have been friendly with all these current and future (Guzman) Deep State players. Shilarie and Bill were front row at DJT's wedding. Trump met the Pope earlier this year. Putin and Trump met in the Ukraine in the 1990's at a party thrown by Jeffery Epstein. Jared Kusher and Ivanka met Guzman in Mexico before his meeting with Sean Penn and Mexican actress Kate del Castillo. These meetings are pivotal harbingers because it established the DJT/Putin alliance that got Trump elected but also the money generator in the form of the Guzman's Sinaloa cartel. These alliances, however, are anything but alliances. Years after the Ukraine meeting, Trump visited Moscow in hopes of making a real estate deal. During that time, he met Putin again who supplied him with two underage hookers, Russian beer and a bottle of Viagra. The rest is history. Trump had the hookers pee on actors portraying the Obamas in the same bed they used in the Ritz Carlton hotel's presidential suite during a state visit. This gave Trump a false sense of security. He had the friendship of the world's third most powerful man (after Obama and Yellen). What he was unaware of was that Putin had the orgy video-taped and imprisoned the hookers for later use as blackmail after he had Trump elected through rigging social media and voter machine software companies owned by, you guessed it, Trump associates.  As of January 20 of this year, Trump thought he had the world by the balls. He had the friendship of the 3rd most powerful man (Putin) and a potential seemingly endless supply of drug money (Guzman was extradited the US on Jan 19 – which was no accident) to retain power. What he didn't know then was Putin and Obama had the tape, Guzman is planning on turning on Trump after his upcoming escape and return to Mexico that has been engineered by AG Sessions.To recap:Trump gained power using nefarious means from Putin to enrich his family using Sinaloa cartel and US taxpayer monies. Putin turned on Trump after Bill Clinton met with Loretta Lynch that fateful June day on the tarmac in Phoenix because he realized his plans for restoring Russia to its glory days were more solid in an alliance with the Obama Clinton camp than with Trump who was sloppy in his cover-up of the election rigging.Guzman, too, will betray Trump as Putin did after his escape that is being engineered by the AG.What happens next:Following the political crucifixion and public humiliation of Trump and VP Pence, House Speaker Paul Ryan will assume the reigns of power. He, however, is an unknowing shill of the DS. Speaker Ryan is alleged to have an illegitimate daughter in Wisconsin.  If this info is made widely public, it could cause controversy because the mother is on Social Assistance - a system that Ryan has railed against for years and has made his opposition to social welfare programs a central part of his political career. If I am aware of this, you can bet DS operatives do as well and are using/will use it to their advantage. Ryan does not want the Presidency because of the potential of this info becoming public. Another backroom deal will be made to upset the order of succession at the highest levels of our government. Look for VP Pence to resign before Trump is impeached this fall and Trump to appoint Ted Nugent as Vice President. After impeachment of Trump, Nugent will pardon Trump just as Gerald Ford who was appointed by Nixon after Spiro Agnew's resignation, pardoned Nixon. This brings us to the overthrow of Nugent by the DS. Obama and the Clintons, with financial backing from George Soros, Guzman and Carlos Slim will undermine Nugent's ability to govern through a smear campaign involving animal rights activists. When Nugent's time in office is over, these liberal forces will join with the Vatican to seize power. Watch for these short and long term events to set a timetable to begin preparations for the occupation by the deep state:Summer 2017 – Stock market crash engineered by FOMC to discredit President Trump’s accomplishmentsSummer 2017 - Special Counsel Mueller brings evidence forward against the Trump administration in the form of the pee tape and loans from Russian banks on failing Trump real estate ventures that will prove collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign to win the 2016 election.Fall 2017 - Impeachment proceedings against President Trump commenceFall 2017 - VP Pence resigns, Ted Nugent appointed by President Trump as his replacementFall 2017 - Joaquin "El Chappo" Guzman escapes from prisonFall 2017 - Construction starts on the Mexican-US border wall consisting of a maze of tunnels, opioid and marijuana addiction rates skyrocket (the real-life Zombification of America)Winter 2018 - Criminal charges of treason and obstruction of justice brought against Trump by SC Mueller and othersWinter 2018 – Donald Trump resigns as 45th US President Winter 2018 - President Nugent pardons TrumpWinter 2018 - President Nugent loses power (assassination or coup by Mitch McConnell and others)Winter 2018 - Hillary Clinton and Barrack Obama form ticket to run for president in a special election called by members of congressFall 2018 - Hillary Clinton becomes the 47th President of the US; Barrack Obama becomes Vice President of the US, House and Senate flip to Dem/DS controlFall 2018 - Supreme Court abolishedWinter 2018 - Federal Reserve is instated as new 3rd branch of government in USWinter 2018 - Firearms that are not property of US gov't are seizedSpring 2018 - Pope Francis does not complete his papal term; new pope unifies all Christian religions and is seen as new Messiah by ChristiansSummer 2018 - Confiscation of American citizen's real property by US militarySummer 2018 - Rampant drug addiction and homosexuality subjugate US poor and middle classes to poverty and depravity as liberals and elitists flourishFall 2018 - Alliance formed between EU, Russia, all oil-producing Muslim nations, Sinaloa cartel and the Clinton/Obama regimeWinter 2018-2019 - US dollar abolished. US put on gold-based system by Federal Reserve Chairman Janet YellenWinter 2018-2019 - Republican Party abolishedWinter 2018-2019 - DS goon squads round-up and imprison registered RepublicansWinter 2018-2019 - US Constitution abolishedSpring 2019 - World Brotherhood Alliance (WBA) established as ruling government for the Mideast, the New Soviet Union, and the American Territories (the US, Mexico, Cuba and Canada)Please begin preparing now!  I'll have more about what can be done and how we can prepare for and prevent this as well as my vision for 2018 and beyond (it is actually surprisingly hopeful as the pendulum will shift yet again until Pope Francis’ successor is revealed as the anti-Christ) in Part 2.  Thanks for reading.

I Love Trump1. Trump has famously erratic ideas about what is amusing.2. I wonder how he finds so many personal enemies everywhere.3. He is really good at making lower classes love their inescapable destiny.4. Trump is a member of the mythical elite billionaire caste, but I canfeel his love and benevolence every moment.

IS SHE ALLOWED TO COLLUDE??? What a positively stupid question, President TheRump! YOU'RE THE BUTTHEAD WHO ALLOWED IT! You declared Billary to be "good people" and said you wouldn't prosecute them because they had endured enough pain and you didn't want to cause them any more. So, of course, Hillary's allowed to collude with anyone because you insisted she not be investigated any further or prosecuted. She and Bill are "GOOD PEOPLE!" WHAT AN IDIOT! You're a dog now lapping up his own vomit.

MsCreant Knave Dave Jun 25, 2017 2:05 PM Permalink

While I agree, and do not love the Trump, I do feel compelled to come to his aid on this, for the sake of consistency if nothing else.That "Good People" letting her off the hook stuff was not in reference to colluding with the DNC. It was for her email-gate shit and maybe the Clinton foundation shit.I suppose HE could go after her on the DNC stuff, but is it his place? Is it not Bernie's place and his constituents' place to do this one? And can all that shit be pinned to her, or will her minions fall, instead? Will she be "innocent" and have no idea what her people were up to behind her back? Poor Hilldevil! You have seen that script before haven't you?In your defense, there are so many crimes to keep track of. Who could remember all of them and pair which ones Trump was referring to with what he said when?

I disagree, of course. His statement that Hillary and Bill were "good people" was a broad general statement in a 60-Minutes interview that asked if he was going to lock her up. I don't recall them asking what he might lock her up for. It was just a sweeping statement that Hillary had suffered enough."Good people" are good people. They don't get called that because they are horrible at other things. So, Trump has declared her as good in a very sweeping statement.If Trump wouldn't lock her up for her email handling or for her much worse Foundation fundraising, he certainly isn't going to care in the slightest about whether her campaign was fair toward Sanders. Like you say, not his problem to prosecute, but that doesn't change the fact that he didn't even want to prosecute her on the things that ARE his problem to prosecute.You are right that there are many apparently crimes she could be investigated for, and I would suspect actual crimes would be discovered that could be prosecuted; but none of that is going to happen under Trump. So, he has no right to whine that she is getting off Scott free.

Of course she could collude, Bernie only ran to keep the contest from being a complete yawn-fest.The deal was that when HRC won her new AG would not go after Jane Sanders for bank fraud.

I don't see this Crazy C as colluding over anything.Her and that walking/breathing rancid POS she's married to OWN that party.

Trump:If you aren't going to jail Hillary- If you aren't draining the motherfucking swamp then SHUT THE FUCK UP!! Bitching ain't accomplishing a single thing!!! The USA people don't give a flying fuck about tweets!!! they need actions & deeds!!!!

I love the way that Trump is leading the Democrats, left-wing kooks (but I repeat myself), and the swamp monsters around on a leash.  His tweets are pure gold.  And to those who think he won't take out Hillary:  be patient.  It's not as simple as going after her with the DOJ -- her empire needs to be chewed up from the inside-out first.  Trump is leveling the Clinton political skyscrapers.

Silly Dreamer. So full of fanatsy that hasn't a single fact to back it up, you are the exact reason the middle class continues to get ripped off by banksters and politicians. You drink their swill like it is Kool Aid. So, keep drining the Kool Aid, and die of poverty as you continue to make the rich richer and to think that a moron who has done nothing but pump the swamp directly into the White House is actually draining it via a complex game of ten-dimensional chess! Dream on! Have you seen anyone leave the swamp so far? Good grief, people are gullible. Gullible to the point of being absolutely stupid -- so stupid they think Trump is actually draining the swamp when no swamp creature has disappeared from public influence so far, but there are a lot more of them in the White House.

Can't trust Democrats at all. We really need to find out why the unmasking situation happened because it seems like there's blame shifting going around to sweep it under the rug.

TheLastTrump (not verified) Jun 25, 2017 11:25 AM Permalink

This story is pure gold. Look at the 4d chess aspects here. It's true. "I knew that finally someone was seeing through the deception when Sam Stein of the Huffington Post on May 31 became the first Fake News outlet to acknowledge something was wrong in Alinskyland. He warned, “While You Obsessed Over Trump’s Scandals, He’s Fundamentally Changed the Country.” http://bigleaguepolitics.com/trumps-cheese-maze-strategy/ "Yet Trump kept feeding the “Russia” story, maneuvering the dim-witted and linguini-spined FBI director James Comey into testifying to the fact that, well, Trump had not ever been under investigation, but that in fact Loretta Lynch had engaged in likely obstruction of justice. Comey managed all this while likely perjuring himself in two different ways—but that’s another story.  The following two days after the Comey testimony, the headlines were shocking in their confirmation of the “cheese” theory:   *”Coal Industry Outlook to improve 4.7% next year. *First ever US natural gas exports to northern Europe *First US Coal mine in years opens *”EPA moves one step closer to upending Obama’s climate legacy *Indo-American Hotelier Partners with Trump on new Hotel Chain “American Made” *Dems slam GOP senators’ efforts to fast-track healthcare bill (What? I thought it was “dead?”) *Trump to create council to punish agencies for stalling or delaying projects *Trump to announce new Cuba policy *Trump’s Pentagon filling top jobs after slow start." YEAH, TRUMPS DONE NOTHING BUT "TWEET CHILDISHLY". FOOLS.

This is the front door to uncovering, collusion, conspiracy to commit murder, espionage, and pay to play on the grandest scale in American history. A lot of bad people are going to be thrown into broad daylight.

They're dead as currently constructed because they can no longer mask or overcome the schism between the Neo-Liberal fascists and the Communist Identity Politics true believers. There is no way to form an effective coalition between the increasingly disparate interests of these two groups.  The battle in the GOP for over 50 years has been its voters and their values against the party elite.  The voters have, and look like they will continue to, win the battle for the party by electing populists and primary'ing RINOs.  Outside of CA it is very difficult for leftist Dems to take out centrists as they don't get the Corporate Dem $$$.  And those centrist Dems won't get the true believer youth vote they need to beat the GOP. The loony left is consolidating the rational for the GOP. With Trump nullifying the old social issue divide AND promoting economic populism, there is nothing left for the Dems to offer working Americans. The Democrat Party will likely exist in 20 years, but I suspect it will be a shrunken minority or completely unrecognizable. I wonder if they'll take on a Libertarian'ish platform to attract the Wall Street $$$ a Trump GOP may lose. It already somewhat fits their social agenda and the Globalists are mostly Democrats anyway. So called free trade and open borders are the Dems platform already. Social Libertarianism and Corporatism disguised as free market Capitalism plus a welfare state justified by Hayek's own writings. That and the same false antiwar BS the Dems have always pushed when they aren't the ones starting it sounds like a reasonable future for the party.

They are tough to kill alright. We will need many fearless vampire hunters armed with silver bullets and wooden stakes of truth.A few sprinkles of prosecutorial, garlic-laced, holy water from the AG will certainly help.The top vampires will need to have their heads cut off.I heard Kathy Griffin is looking for new gigs, maybe she can help.

I would much rather have crazy Bernie Sanders right now than evil Trump. I wonder how many people got offended with my Bernie 2020 bumper sticker yet? I am pissed at the pile of horshsit of an administration we ended up with. I wish that Russia would have stayed out of the election. The electoral college already rigs it enough.

Trump is evil?!I think he's great.  Can't think of anything evil about the guy.  My biggest complaint so far would be that he does not seem to be going after the Clintons and Obama for their apparent crimes.  Obama using US intel to spy and attempt to throw election.  Hillary for negligence in handling classified info.  The Clintons for their influence peddling and money-laundering best detailed by Charles Ortel.  Their criminality and venality certainly might be characterized as 'evil'.

You got taken.  Twice.  Once when Hillary's gaggle of monstrosities stole the primary, and again when it turned out that Bernie is as much a money-grubber as those he accuses of being evil capitalist pigs.  He is just another pig who, like Hillary and most of the top echelon, got very wealthy doing "public service".There wasn't a good choice anywhere on the ballots this cycle.  But if someone had to win, I am happy it was Trump.  He drives the left to at least make their evil plain to see even to dullards.  The left went crazy after the Gifford's shooting over an obscure Palin page that had crosshairs on it.  Now they are doing ISIS photo ops with Trump's head, ritually killing him in theater and actually trying to gun down those on Trump's side.  As a novel or movie story, any editor/producer would reject this reality as too unrealistic.
