Hacked Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails confirmed that the party rigged the 2016 primary against socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders. Sanders’ supporters “have been stricken with an acute case of paranoia about the Democratic Party hijacking the nomination from their guiding light at the national convention this summer,” Seth McLaughlin and David Sherfinski wrote in a Feb. 13 analysis for The Washington Times. Sanders has warned about what could happen with a brokered convention. “The convention would have to explain to the American people: ‘hey, candidate X, you know, kind of got the most votes and won the most delegates in the primary process but we’re not going to give him or her the nomination,’ ” Sanders told MSNBC. “I think that would be a very divisive moment for the Democratic Party.”
