Democrats have finally conducted an autopsy on the 2016 election to figure out why they lost so badly. They’re not interested in sharing it, however. In fact, they’re hiding it from public view.
House Democrats bury 2016 autopsy
House Democrats are going to extreme lengths to conceal a report on the party’s problems.
After nearly five months, Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-N.Y.) presented his investigative report to lawmakers during a members-only gathering at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee headquarters Thursday night.
Only about two-dozen lawmakers showed up for the presentation, which sources described as “dense but thorough.” But members were not allowed to have copies of the report and may view it only under the watchful eyes of DCCC staff.
The presentation didn’t focus on Democratic messaging and instead was heavily skewed towards money — how much the DCCC brings in, from where and how those funds are spent.
Some Democratic lawmakers and staffers complained that the cloak-and-dagger secrecy was overblown and actually makes the findings look worse than they are. But the DCCC is sticking by its strategy.
The fact that Democrats are hiding their findings is very telling. There has to be something in the report that they are afraid of being made public.
What could it be?
