Guadagno Campaign: RIGGED: Phil Murphy Helped The DNC And Hillary Clinton Rig The 2016 Primary

RIGGED: Phil Murphy Helped The DNC And Hillary Clinton Rig The 2016 Primary

Murphy Donated Over $130,000 To Joint DNC-Clinton Fund Donna Brazile Says Was Used To Rig The Primary Against Bernie Sanders

“Donna Brazile’s explosive new book sheds a light on how Phil Murphy helped rig the 2016 primary against Bernie Sanders as practice for his own gubernatorial run in 2017,” said Guadagno Spokesman Ricky Diaz. “As a former DNC finance chair, Phil Murphy knew that his money was going to be used to take over the DNC for Hillary and rig the presidential primary when he donated over $130,000 to the DNC-Hillary Victory Fund. Because he got away with it in 2016, it’s clear Murphy also decided to use his Wall Street fortune to buy the New Jersey Democratic primary in 2017. New Jerseyans can now see Phil Murphy doesn’t have their back, and they will send him a loud and clear message on Tuesday: their votes are not for sale.”

Bernie Campaign Manager: “Shocking revelation” 
(Real Clear Politics, 11/3/2017)

Donna Brazile’s Explosive New Book Details “Proof” DNC Rigged Primary For Hillary Clinton’s Presidential Campaign: A Secret Agreement Between The DNC And The Clinton Campaign Gave Hillary Clinton Complete Control Of The “Victory Fund” As Far Back As 2015.

  • “Debbie was not a good manager. She hadn’t been very interested in controlling the party—she let Clinton’s headquarters in Brooklyn do as it desired so she didn’t have to inform the party officers how bad the situation was. How much control Brooklyn had and for how long was still something I had been trying to uncover for the last few weeks. By September 7, the day I called Bernie, I had found my proof and it broke my heart.” (Politico, 11/2/2017)
  • “Individuals who had maxed out their $2,700 contribution limit to the campaign could write an additional check for $353,400 to the Hillary Victory Fund—that figure represented $10,000 to each of the 32 states’ parties who were part of the Victory Fund agreement—$320,000—and $33,400 to the DNC. The money would be deposited in the states first, and transferred to the DNC shortly after that. Money in the battleground states usually stayed in that state, but all the other states funneled that money directly to the DNC, which quickly transferred the money to Brooklyn.” (Politico, 11/2/2017)
  • “Right around the time of the convention, the leaked emails revealed Hillary’s campaign was grabbing money from the state parties for its own purposes, leaving the states with very little to support down-ballot races.” (Politico, 11/2/2017)
  • “Yet the states kept less than half of 1 percent of the $82 million they had amassed from the extravagant fund-raisers Hillary’s campaign was holding, just as Gary had described to me when he and I talked in August. When the Politico story described this arrangement as “essentially … money laundering” for the Clinton campaign, Hillary’s people were outraged at being accused of doing something shady.” (Politico, 11/2/2017)
  • “I had tried to search out any other evidence of internal corruption that would show that the DNC was rigging the system to throw the primary to Hillary… Then I found this agreement…If the fight had been fair, one campaign would not have control of the party before the voters had decided which one they wanted to lead. This was not a criminal act, but as I saw it, it compromised the party’s integrity.” (Politico, 11/2/2017)
  • “This victory fund agreement, however, had been signed in August 2015, just four months after Hillary announced her candidacy and nearly a year before she officially had the nomination.” (Politico, 11/2/2017)

“The DNC and former Clinton staffers pushed back on Brazile’s claim but never outright denied it.” (NPR, 11/3/2016)

Bernie Campaign Manager: “It was obviously a shocking revelation… It was pretty clear that they were on the Clinton side, but I don’t think any of us ever imagined there was actually a formal arrangement giving the Clintons control of the DNC, that’s for sure…” (Real Clear Politics, 11/3/2017)

During the 2016 presidential primary, former DNC Finance Chair Phil Murphy donated over $130,000 to the joint fundraising account established by Hillary Clinton and the DNC. Murphy also maxed out to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. The 2016 DNC Convention took place in July of 2016. (

From 2006-2009, Murphy served as finance chair for the Democratic National Committee, the Democratic Party’s top finance job, under Howard Dean. (Source)

Phil Murphy Rigged 2017 Democrat Gubernatorial Primary Too

Phil Murphy donated more than $1.5 million to Democrat party bosses before his run for governor, securing their endorsements. (The Star Ledger, 5/11/2017)

  • “Murphy, her out of touch opponent (who like former Democratic Governor John Corzine appeared out of 1% world to buy the Democratic Party’s nomination) cheated authentic and earnest Democrats, such as Jim Johnson, out of a fair chance to persuade party rank and file by “donating” to the all-powerful Democratic Party machines.” (Op-Ed: The Star Ledger, 11/3/2017)

To date, Phil Murphy has spent more than $20 million of his personal fortune on his campaign for governor. (The Star Ledger, 5/31/2017)
