Neither of which demonstrate cheating in any way, only that many at the DNC didn't like Bernie. Hardly a surprise, as he isn't a democrat. He got fewer votes than Hillary. The system wasn't rigged. They didn't steal votes from him. This is exactly why Bernie and his demagoguery bothered me nearly as much as Trump's. That doesn't change the fact that she was a bad candidate too, but we had two awful candidates. A demagogue (Bernie) and paranoid technocrat without any charisma (Hillary). The problem was that all the good candidates (Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, Sherrod Brown) decided that Hillary had earned a clear field, which unfortunately led to her running against a non-democrat in the primaries, Bernie. She could have also helped tourniquet this situation by picking a true progressive as her VP, like Warren or Brown. But she chose Tim Kaine, a candidate even more boring, and more centrist than herself. That choice, like the email, was really stupid.

The Supreme Court, and the country, are now both really screwed. Hopefully Ginsburg holds out long enough that Trump isn't the one replacing her or this mess will last for the next 25-30 years.
