The Green Party, often cited as an alternative for disillusioned progressives, has been holding the Democratic Party accountable for years, with 2016 being no different. The Democratic Establishment’s coronation of Hillary Clinton came at the cost of disenfranchising millions of Bernie Sanders‘ supporters in the process, making the Green Party viable in the presidential election.
At the tail end of the Democratic primaries, new information came to light revealing Clinton’s defense regarding the FBI/DOJ criminal investigation into her private email server used as secretary of state, effectively debunking the defense she and her supporters have been rehearsing to the public for over a year. The State Department Inspector General reported in late May that Hillary Clinton broke Federal Records rules and never had authorization to use the server, yet the Democratic Party remains intent on propping Hillary Clinton up as their presidential candidate.
“The investigation should go forward,” Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein told the Observer. “This is sort of typical Hillary Clinton; to do things that are not legal, to say that they are, and then try to cover them up. Hillary Clinton severely chastised other whistleblowers for using Internet channels that were not secure and yet she herself was doing that with private, high level state department information.”
