President Donald Trump accused Hillary Clinton on Sunday of colluding with the DNC in order to cheat Bernie Sanders out of the nomination during the primaries last year.
According to Trump, Hillary secretly plotted with the Democratic Party in order to “beat crazy Bernie Sanders.”
“Hillary Clinton colluded with the Democratic Party in order to beat Crazy Bernie Sanders. Is she allowed to so collude? Unfair to Bernie!” Trump tweeted.

Zerohedge.com reports: Trump is referring to the disclosures that emerged last summer when it was revealed by email leaks from hacker Guccifer 2.0 that the DNC had colluded with the Clinton campaign to prevent Bernie from winning the Democratic primary.
It’s not the first time Trump has accused the Democrats of cheating Sanders out of the nomination, although today’s tweet comes amid probes ongoing probes into Russian meddling into the presidential election and possible collusion between Trump’s campaign and Moscow.
In an interview airing Sunday on Fox and Friends Weekend, Trump blasted Barack Obama over Russia’s interference, accusing Obama of doing “nothing” before the election.
“Well I just heard today for the first time that Obama knew about Russia a long time before the election, and he did nothing about it. But nobody wants to talk about that,” Trump said in an interview airing in full Sunday on “Fox and Friends Weekend.”
“The CIA gave him information on Russia a long time before they even — before the election. And I hardly see it. It’s an amazing thing,” Trump continued. “In other words, the question is, if he had the information, why didn’t he do something about it? He should have done something about it. But you don’t read that. It’s quite sad,” Trump said.
On Saturday evening, Trump mused some more on this topic when he tweeted that “Obama Administration official said they “choked” when it came to acting on Russian meddling of election. They didn’t want to hurt Hillary?”

Sensing a shift in sentiment – as reported yesterday, angry grassroots Democrats are increasingly turning on leaders such as Obama, Pelosi, Schumer with demands that they “talk less about Russia” and focus on core economic issues instead. Needless to say, nothing could make Trump happier than to put the Russian scandal in the past, especially if he can do it while redirecting attention to his arch-nemesis, Hillary Clinton.
As for Bernie Sanders, we doubt he will care much about what Trump has to say. As reported yesterday, the Vermont senator and his wife, who are now under investigation for bank fraud, have far bigger problems on their heads than a Trump tweet.
