At this point, it is probable that everyone has heard the multiple allegations that during a meeting with the Russian Foreign Minister and the Russian Ambassador, President Trump disclosed highly classified information. The media has been talking about this nonstop since the meeting took place.
It is worth pointing out that this constant coverage of potentially leaked information has seemingly contributed to the covering up of two class action lawsuits that are being led against the Democratic National Committee, instead focusing on the Republican-led White House.
The two class action lawsuits are focusing on first, the various scandals that occurred during the primary that resulted in the nomination leaning in Hillary Clinton’s direction, and her eventual nomination and second, the fact that the DNC did not pay any of its campaign workers for the overtime hours they put in.
The first class action lawsuit has been in front of the courts for a while now, since October of 2016. Reports can now be accessed covering the contents of this hearing which was heard in the U.S. District Court of Southern Florida, in which it known that the DNC has requested the case be dismissed.
The case revolves around allegations that both the DNC and the DNC chair, Debbie Wasserman Schultz are responsible for charter violations and made moves to ensure the nomination went to their preferred candidate, Hillary Clinton.
Many conservatives simply have no interest in the politics of the liberals, and the media, in turn, has little to no desire to cover these topics. After some digging, however, analysis by Washington DC show host and Bernie Sanders supporter Tim Black and Huffington Post contributor H.A. Goodman can be found. They cover a piece detailing seven revelations of the lawsuits motion to dismiss that had been deemed “jaw-dropping” by the article.
The most interesting point they included is number seven, which they said surely has the DNC dissatisfied with the judge’s questioning. This particular question deals with democracy’s demand for truth, and further deals with the questions of, should a person be fraudulently encouraged to donate to an organization, do they have the right to sue later the individual who pressured the donation?
The other class-action lawsuit deals with charges that the Democratic National Committee, along with others involved in a 2016 convention in Philadelphia did not pay out on overtime hours of at least 50 organizers.
At said convention, while they DNC was campaigning for a $15 minimum wage increase and stating their belief that workers deserve a higher wage, protections in the workplace, and policies that there should be a better balance between work and family life, they apparently meant for any employer but them. Many organizers of the event put in 80 hour work weeks, yet only received $3,000 paychecks. When it is figured up, this means they were paid less than the current minimum wage they so despise.
While some were not receiving their fair compensation, other staff members and volunteers were receiving bonuses totaling nearly $1 million. Interns received $500 and executive director Kevin Washo received $310,000.
