The Democratic Party has trust issues, and rightfully so.
Back in 2016, in the election that brought Donald Trump to the White House, the Democratic Party allowed themselves to be commandeered by Hillary Clinton, according to emails released by Wikileaks in the run up to that contest. Clinton and her campaign then unceremoniously rigged the Democratic primaries in order to railroad the party into choosing Hillary – a mistake that they will likely never live down.
The person most adversely effected by Clinton’s collusion with the DNC was Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, who was cheated out of the nomination and whose supporters largely abandoned Hillary and the Democratic Party in the wake of the scandal.
Now, as Bernie again looks poised to make a run late in the 2020 primaries, another of Clinton’s Deep State pals is admitting that he’ll step up to put a stop to it this time around.

The former president reportedly said if Sanders held a strong lead in the Democratic primary, he would speak out to prevent him from becoming the nominee.
A close adviser to Obama told Politico he could not confirm whether Obama would stand up against Sanders.
“He hasn’t said that directly to me,” the adviser said. “The only reason I’m hesitating at all is because, yeah, if Bernie were running away with it, I think maybe we would all have to say something. But I don’t think that’s likely. It’s not happening.”
How the Democrats can have any faith in their party after this is beyond me.
