(Democratic National Committee (DNC) lawyers responded on October 14 in support of their motion to dismiss the class action lawsuit against the DNC and former chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, maintaining that a fair and balanced Democratic primary is just a “political promise.”

“Courts have uniformly rejected attempts to litigate on the basis of purported political promises, including ‘statements of principle and intent in the political realm’” wrote the DNC lawyers. “These decisions have not always been explicit in their reasoning, but they reflect the long-standing judicial understanding that, because they inherently raise serious questions of justiciability and threaten core First Amendment rights of political speech and association, “[p]olitical squabbles are not as easily resolved in federal courts as are some other disputes.”

My Commentary: From the article, “Apparently voters were supposed to assume the DNC was biased in favor of Clinton before the primaries even started.”

Therefore, according to DNC lawyers, the class action lawsuit against the DNC and Debbie Wasserman Schultz should be dropped, and Bernie Sanders wasn’t actually robbed by the DNC…
