Welcome to Washington politics baby. Welcome…To the Machine…
The Intercept has published a secretly taped audio recording of one of the most powerful Democrats in America pressuring a progressive candidate to drop out of a Colorado congressional primary race. It hasn’t been getting as much attention as the WikiLeaks drops on the DNC’s sabotage of the Sanders campaign because it’s not about a presidential race, but make no mistake: this is the single most damning piece of evidence ever published exposing the Democratic Party’s war on progressives.
The recording features House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, the second-highest ranking Democrat in the House of Representatives, informing primary challenger Levi Tillemann that if he runs, he will be running against not just the chosen establishment candidate Jason Crow, but against Hoyer and the full might of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) as well.
*Though Bernie Sanders would be a colossal communist disaster and is pretty much completely clueless on economics and the realities of human nature (and we are not exaggerating), and represents everything this country is NOT supposed to stand for, he DID get jacked in the primaries. That did happen.
