Putin Calls Out Rigged U.S. Democracy: ‘You Actually Believe US Elections are Democratic?’
In the wake of WikiLeaks’ release of emails revealing collusion by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign to defeat the insurgent candidacy of Bernie Sanders, the Clinton camp diligently spun a now leading narrative. This narrative – regurgitated by the mainstream U.S. media – is that Russia’s Vladimir Putin is actively working to subvert the U.S. presidential election.
Make no mistake that the Clinton campaign is intentionally attempting to draw the public’s attention away from the Clinton/DNC’s concerted effort to usurp the will of American voters and rigging the Democratic nomination in favor of Clinton.
In addition to the evidence contained in the WikiLeaks’ DNC email release, the organization Election Justice USA, a non-partisan organization advocating for voters’ rights and standing against election fraud and voter suppression in all forms, has released a damning report titled, Democracy Lost: A Report on the Fatally Flawed 2016 Democratic Primary. The report highlighted the following phenomena indicative of widespread vote rigging:
- Targeted voter suppression
- Registration tampering
- Illegal voter purges
- Exit polling discrepancies
- Evidence for voting machine tampering
- The security (or lack thereof) of various voting machine type
Interestingly, Russian President Vladimir Putin preemptively addressed allegations of Russian interference in U.S. elections, and in turn, questioned the legitimacy of U.S. democracy during a panel discussion at the St Petersburg Economic Forum.
