Bernie Supporters Not Happy With FBI Letting Hillary Off the Hook

Bernie Supporters Not Happy With FBI Letting Hillary Off the Hook

“Never thought I’d agree with Trump!”

Bernie Sanders supporters have been clinging to a hope that if the FBI recommended indictment for Hillary Clinton, there was a chance the Democratic Party would dump her and nominate Bernie instead.

That hope ended this week. Now that the FBI has let her off the hook, nothing will stop her nomination. Many Bernie supporters are disgusted and who could blame them?

CNN reports:

Sanders supporters melt down over FBI’s Clinton decision

It’s not only Donald Trump and Republicans expressing their indignation at the FBI’s decision not to recommend charges against Hillary Clinton over her handling of classified materials on a private email server.

The Tuesday announcement also set off a torrent of anger and frustration among some of Bernie Sanders’ most diehard supporters, a vocal minority who have been agitating for an indictment of the former secretary of state in the hopes it would vault the Vermont senator to the Democratic nomination.

Trump and the Sanders bitter-enders had played up the possibility, pointing to what they called an “FBI convention” that would effectively block Clinton from becoming the nominee. But with FBI Director James Comey’s announcement likely closing that door, social media — including a couple high-profile Sanders backers — erupted:

Some of these people could end up voting for Trump. Probably not millions of them but some. This phenomenon is getting notice in some corners of the blogosphere.

Why These Bernie Sanders Supporters Are Now Backing Donald Trump

Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders are on opposite sides of many issues dominating this year’s presidential race.

But that hasn’t stopped some former Sanders supporters from pledging to support presumptive GOP nominee Trump in the general election.

A Bloomberg Politics poll released last month found that while 55% of Sanders supporters plan to back presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in November, 22% now support Trump.

In her final segment on The Daily Show, Jessica Williams attempted to make sense of the poll’s findings by speaking with a group of Sanders supporters.

“It’s not going to Donald Trump, it’s going away from Hillary Clinton,” one Sanders-to-Trump supporter explained to Williams in the clip.

As the focus group’s responses quickly revealed, it wasn’t that the Sanders supporters were drawn to Trump. In fact, many of them offered various insults about the presumptive GOP nominee during the clip. It turned out they just didn’t like Clinton.

To his credit, Trump has told them they’re welcome to join him:

We’ll see if any Bernie supporters actually take him up on it.

Welcome to reality, kiddies. It’s all rigged and your opinion doesn’t count.

    Bernie is on our side, and the GOPe is on Mrs. Scum’s side. Imagine.

    But the game is not completely rigged: WE vote the GOP in, not the democrats. It’s completely within our power to toss our worms like Ryan and McConnell. We just have to use it.

Jim Comey just torpedoed Bernie’s ship.
Now, I was listening to Rush, and his guest Andy McCarthy said that a New Attorney General would be able to prosecute.
He also said it was doubtful.

It is at the pleasure of the Department of “Justice” to prosecute or abort the proceeding.

That said, if the polls are to be believed, then prosecuting Clinton for treason and other high crimes would probably create a martyr for the cause. It seems that the best we can expect is a vote that exceeds the margin of fraud, for a Republican counterweight in the fall.

Finally, I wonder what else they can pull out of the twilight zone. It seems that the resumption of abortion rites marked the beginning, not end, of a progressive slope.

I love that they are surprised after voting over and over to heap as much power as possible on big government. What could possibly go wrong???

So wannabe socialist subjects don’t like it when wannabe socialist leaders aren’t held to the same standards as they would be? I for one, however, welcome the help of any and all useful idiots in defeating Hillary.

As a non lawyer, my question to all here is, if Hillary did not release all of her work related emails, even though she told a federal judge in an FOIA case that all pertinent emails had been released, is she not liable for false statements?

    Neither am I a lawyer, but I think that if any federal judge were to go against the Clinton Machine, there would be another “accident” or “suicide” of a judge. Just ask the family of Vince Foster…
