The Democratic Party released a dire July 4th message to their fellow Americans Wednesday, saying US “values are under attack” and that “too many members of our society” are struggling under President Trump and the GOP-controlled Congress.
Chair of the DNC Tom Perez released the bleak statement as the nation celebrated Independence Day, adding that “Muslim Americans are being discriminated against for their faith, and women’s right to choose is under threat like never before.”
“As we celebrate our nation’s independence, we recognize that America’s founding promise remains out of reach for too many families. Too many members of our society are still struggling to find a good-paying job or get the health care they need. Too many women, LGBTQ Americans, people of color, and people with disabilities still face inequality and injustice across our society.
“Everywhere we look, our most fundamental values are under attack. Thousands of children have been separated from their parents at our southern border. At our highest court, workers’ rights are being taken away, voting rights are under assault, Muslim Americans are being discriminated against for their faith, and women’s right to choose is under threat like never before,” said the statement.

BRAZILE BACKLASH: DNC Boss REFUSES to Acknowledge Hillary 'Rigged' Election
Democratic National Committee chair Tom Perez continues to deflect questions over Hillary Clinton’s secret takeover of the DNC, repeatedly refusing to answer questions over whether the former Secretary of State stole the nomination from Senator Bernie Sanders.
Perez was speaking with Fox News this week when he was pressed over Donna Brazile’s recent allegations that the Hillary Campaign seized control of the Democratic Party nearly a year before securing the nomination.
“I’ve got to ask you about Donna Brazile, Tom. Obviously, she’s railing against the DNC in her new book. We’ve seen her all over the place revealing fresh divides within the party in the aftermath of the 2016 election,” said Fox’s Maria Bartiromo. “What is going on, Tom?”
“Donna’s a good friend and I think you need to ask her that question,” Perez said. “What I can tell you, Maria, is that I was out on the stump everywhere and there wasn’t one person who asked me about Donna Brazile and the past. They were asking me about their health care; they wanted to continue the process that Terry McAuliffe has made in Virginia. They wanted to make sure we had people uniting us and not dividing us.”
“Obviously there was a real division within the Party, Tom,” fired-back Bartiromo. “It was rigged, everybody was behind Hillary Clinton and not Bernie Sanders.”

DEMS GO NUCLEAR: Democratic Party Sues TRUMP, RUSSIA, WIKILEAKS for ‘Collusion’
The Democratic Party filed a bombshell lawsuit Friday, alleging the Trump campaign, Russian government, and WikiLeaks conspired to “disrupt” the 2016 presidential election and defeat Hillary Clinton.
“The multi-million-dollar lawsuit filed in Manhattan federal court says that ‘In the Trump campaign, Russia found a willing and active partner in this effort’ to mount ‘a brazen attack on American Democracy,’ which included Russian infiltration of the Democratic Party computer network,” writes CNBC.
The lawsuit claims that “pre-existing relationships” between Russia and Trump’s inner-circle helped facilitate the cooperation; mounting a sophisticated campaign to sway voters away from the Democratic nominee.
DNC chairman Tom Perez commented on the impending legal battle Friday, saying the move was “not partisan, it’s patriotic.”
“If the occupant of the Oval Office won’t protect our democracy, Democrats will. It is our obligation to the American people,” Perez added.
