Brazile, who gave Clinton a CNN debate question and railed against the Sanders camp to a reporter, flipped on Clinton just days after she acknowledged that Robert Mueller is scrutinizing Democrats. Tony Podesta resigned from his lobbying firm the Podesta Group, a Democrat Washington powerhouse firm.

Warren has wavered between supporting Clinton and burnishing her progressive credentials with the base before a potential 2020 run.

A former top Wall Street executive recently confirmed longstanding rumors, saying that Warren is “very different” in person than she is on the campaign stump.

Bernie Sanders’ 2016 campaign manager Jeff Weaver recently conducted an exclusive interview with Big League Politics as he fights to reform the DNC nominating system.

“There are rules that, even if fairly applied, are used to keep people out,” Weaver told Big League Politics in an exclusive interview inside the DNC Unity Commission, which the Democratic Party convened in a lower-floor conference room at Washington’s ritzy Marriott Wardman Park hotel. Most of the discussions at the Unity Commission centered on how the Democratic Party can determine its own rights when it comes to picking its nominee rather than abiding by the will of the voters, and figuring out how to navigate “constitutional constraints” on its own authority.

“There are rules that allow campaigns to game the system rather than have the will of the voters represented,” Weaver said. “There were abuses in the process. Those have got to be addressed.”
Vanquished former DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz infamously colluded against Sanders during the primaries in favor of Hillary Clinton, according to WikiLeaks revelations. But Weaver told Big League Politics that he is moving forward from the contention.

“I was never bitter. I am not a bitter person,” Weaver said. “Part of the mission of this reform commission is to open up the process to make sure that the will of the voters is expressed,” he said. Asked if Sanders will run again, Weaver remarked, “I think it’s too early to talk about that right now.”

Trump White House Chief of Staff Claims America “Desperate” For More Immigration

Safe to say that’s not what the President’s supporters voted for.

Published

on

President Trump’s White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney sharply departed from previous Trump administration policy on immigration when speaking at an event in England on Wednesday, according to new reporting from the Washington Post.

Mulvaney claimed that the United States is “desperate” for higher levels of legal immigration.

We are desperate — desperate — for more people. We are running out of people to fuel the economic growth that we’ve had in our nation over the last four years. We need more immigrants.

Mulvaney framed his call for additional levels of legal immigration by merely stating the process had to be lawful. It wasn’t a consideration that unauthorized immigration is already illegal for a reason- it drives down wages of American workers, raises costs of housing and utilities, and places burdens on communities unprepared for elevated levels of population growth.

Unfortunately, Mulvaney’s perspective on immigration policy- one that prioritizes a desire for more cheap labor for American corporations- is widely held among the donor class elite of the Republican Party, who ignores concerns on the impact of such policy on American workers. Charles Koch, a notable political enemy of President Trump, bankrolls influence efforts to massively increase annual legal immigration levels, putting himself on the same page as Mulvaney on the topic.

President Trump has given mixed messages on legal immigration policy, running on a strong pro-American worker restrictionist platform as a candidate and flirting with the idea of increased levels as President. Immigration levels broadly have decreased during his presidency, a development likely linked to the increase in wages among America’s blue collar workers.

Early Trump supporters such as Stephen K. Bannon and Stephen Miller have proved instrumental to blocking plans suggested by those such as Jared Kushner to buff immigration levels. Unfortunately, it appears as if the Chamber of Commerce crowd has an ally in a high place within the White House, who seeks to deliver the cheap labor programs they need to avoid paying higher wages to American workers.

Mulvaney’s desire to push the policies of the Chamber of Commerce and Koch Brothers raises serious questions about his high-ranking place within the administration.
