The third day of the Democratic Party’s conference in the liberty city.
Key speakers include outgoing Veep Joe Biden and POTUS Barack Obama. With Hillary Clinton now confirmed as the Presidential candidate, the conference moves fully into campaign mode. Expect less bother from the Bernie supporters and more attacks on the banker’s friend and lifelong 1%er Donald Trump.
The most intriguing and potentially damaging speech for the right may come from Republican Michael Bloomberg, who will endorse Hillary Clinton.
Speaking of the Donald, he’s made a speech in which he weirdly asks Russia to spy on the USA. He sort of invites China and bedroom hackers round the world to do the same. Not surprisingly, the Democrats have seized on his loose words, claiming he is the first Presidential candidate in history to invite a foreign power to spy on an American citizen. Indeed, to spy on the then Secretary of State.
“This has to be the first time that a major presidential candidate has actively encouraged a foreign power to conduct espionage against his political opponent,”
“This has gone from being a matter of curiosity, and a matter of politics, to being a national security issue.”
– Jake Sullivan, Hillary Clinton’s senior policy adviser.
We’d all hate for Trump to be taken away in handcuffs by the FBI, right? But, if he is in Vladimir Putin’s pocket, as has been claimed, that might just happen.
Presidential running mate Tim Kaine is up around lunchtime. Joe Biden is on around 2PM, Obama shortly afterwards.
