Why was Bernie Sanders Running for President ? If The Democratic Party had no intention of supporting Bernie Sanders bid for the Presidency then why was he allowed to run for President (as proven by Donna Brazile, Interim Chairperson for the Democratic National Committee) ?… First, Bernie Sanders would be getting Contributions from like minded citizens which added up to approx. $228 Million Dollars, which could be fed into the Democratic Committee and used for paying for television Debates with Hillary Clinton, this would help Hillary Clinton get her message out in the form of a Debate instead of paying for expensive commercials, within the Debate Bernie could also be a useful tool in silencing bad press on Hillary as he did when he said “people are sick of hearing about Hillary’s Damn E-Mails” This helped Hillary out a lot, it made the e-mails look as if they were a Non-Issue and the entire e-mail problem should be discarded. Bernie Sanders was nothing more than a tool used by The Democratic National Committee in helping Hillary Clinton in her bid for the Presidency, he generated money and helped Hillary get her message out to the public, without Bernie it would have appeared exactly as it was a One Dog and Pony Show. Everyone who gave money to The Bernie Sanders Campaign should be suing The Democratic National Committee for the return of their Contribution.
