Kind of what we knew all along.

Let's face it Trump will never get the chance to go after Sanders, but if he ever did there is mountains of as yet unused opposition research to use against the Vermont Senator.

Not that Donald Trump is not awash in vulnerabilities.

For instance he is now saying he will not release his tax returns until November:

Despite pressure, the billionaire also doesn't expect to release his tax returns before November, citing an ongoing audit of his finances. He said he will release them after the audit ends. But he said that he wouldn't overrule his lawyers and instruct them to release his returns if the audit hasn't concluded by November. 

"There's nothing to learn from them," Trump told The Associated Press in an interview Tuesday. He also has said he doesn't believe voters are interested.

You know i seriously doubt there have ever been any tax returns the voters have been MORE interested in seeing.

I actually doubt he will ever release them, but if he did you can bet they will show he is not worth anywhere near the amount of money that he claims to be worth.

The Trump campaign also recently put a white nationalist on their delegate list.

Sure he's off now, but do we seriously think he is the only one?

And all of this while Republican strategists continue to plan for a third party challenge.

So no Donald Trump will not be going after Bernie Sanders, because right now he is throwing everything but the kitchen sink at Hillary and Sanders keeps her too distracted to effectively defend herself.

Well you know what they say, "The enemy of my enemy is my friend."

      Next Stop, The Twilight Zone: Romney Says Trump Disqualified For Not Releasing Tax Returns

      Mitt Romney of all people is claiming that Donald Trump has disqualified himself from the presidency by refusing to release his tax returns.

      ...Mitt Romney, who stalled, made up excuses, and refused to release a full disclosure of his tax returns is running around claiming that Trump can’t be president because he won’t release his tax returns. Birthers, like Donald Trump, attempted to demand Obama’s college transcripts in exchange for Romney’s tax returns. As the presumptive Republican nominee, Romney blamed Obama for his refusal to release his tax returns. Romney refused to release even five years of tax returns.

      Mitt Romney is not the person to be making the argument that Donald Trump is disqualified from the presidency because he won’t release his tax returns. In fact, Romney is one of the last people in the world who should be discussing releasing tax returns.

      The Republicans have dragged the American people into some kind of bizarre Twilight Zone where Mitt Romney is the moral compass of the GOP. The last thing that Republicans needed was their former tax dodging nominee telling their current tax dodging nominee that he has disqualified himself by not releasing his tax returns.

      Every single day, the Republican Party manages to find a new way to make things worse for themselves.

    “Trump is such an asshole, and the people who surround him and his troll army and all this other stuff, they are aggressively dickish to all other forms of human life. So that’s clearly in some people’s head spaces.”

    I've gotta say that that is the best quote from a Republican that I have ever read in my life!

    Don't whine that Sanders can control anything Trump does. You sound like Andrea Mitchell whining to Sanders that Clinton has to fight on two fronts: him and Trump. Sanders basically told her to talk to the hand.

    Today when asked about the Clinton email investigation, FBI director James Comey said he's "not familiar with the term security inquiry." And said he considers what they're doing is an investigation. "It's in our name."
    So there's the official debunk of the "it's not an investigation, it's a security inquiry" talking point, which has always been silly. Obviously a Yale-educated lawyer out to know better.

      "Don't whine that Sanders can control anything Trump does."
      Hillary and her bots have painted themselves into a corner with all the word games concerning the FBI "investigation".
      Comey is flat out stating it's an investigation, and she will be treated like "anybody else under an FBI investigation".
      With the known facts, it seems that at minimum she is in violation of several Federal Records Acts, that specifically include email communication:
      Criminal or civil penalties, fines and/or imprisonment for:
      The unlawful removal or destruction of federal records (18 U.S.C. 2071)
      The unlawful disclosure of national security information (18 U.S.C. 793,794,& 798)
      The improper handling of records containing other information exempt under the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C.552), the Privacy Act (5 U.S.C. 552a), and other information to which access is restricted by law.
      And now Bryan Pagliano's(the IT guy who set up server and has been granted immunity) State Dept emails have "disappeared"? He was also on the payroll of the Clinton Foundation at the same time as his employment at the State Dept!

      "No one involved thinks anyone will be charged"

      A clever choice of words by Halperin: Involved. Let's see, who's "involved" in the matter that might be talking to Mark Halperin. Not anyone from the FBI. They're investigating, not "involved". I can tell you who's "involved": Hillary Clinton, Huma Abedin, Bryan Pagliano.

      "no one...thinks" "Thinks". Not knows. Just thinks.

      Then there's "charged". Clever how he skipped the word "indictment" which follows an investigation and precedes a charge.

      $200 says Brian Fallon fed that talking point to Halperin and of course none of the Clinton camp believe they're going to be charged. And Halperin parroted it.

      Just remember, the last interview by law enforcement after they've gathered all their evidence is the subject of the investigation. Clinton's last. She's the subject.

But multiple law enforcement officials said the matter quickly became an investigation into whether anyone had committed a crime in handling classified information."

      The problem is Clinton didn't prepare financially or physically to run a full primary. She didn't train to play a full tournament. Now she and her pals, including the media like Andrea Mitchell are trying to persuade the public it's Sanders' fault. It's not Sanders' problem Clinton didn't prepare. Just like Venus wouldn't layup for Serena, Sanders has no obligation to layup for Clinton simply because they're both running as Dems.

That proves he's a coward, and a divisive son-of-a-bitch, that's why. By declaring with the party he most resembles, he gets to start out, on at least, second base while declaring he hit a home run. Would he have had as much impact as an Independent? We'll never know, will we, but it's damned sure didn't hurt him coming out the gate as a Democrat, did it He got name recognition like he never would have, had he not been pitted against Hillary (Goddamned) Clinton.

    Bernie Sanders Goes Off On MSNBC’s Mitchell: ‘Don’t Moan To Me About Hillary’s Problems’

    On the heels of winning the Democratic presidential primary in West Virginia, a week after a triumph in Indiana, Bernie Sanders attempted to take a victory lap early Wednesday afternoon on MSNBC. But while host Andrea Mitchell did begin with acknowledgement of the senator’s wins, she was quick to throw cold water on any progress the distant underdog candidate might have made.
    For one, Mitchell noted that Sanders came out of West Virginia with the same number of delegates as Hillary Clinton, once you consider the superdelegates, meaning the state did nothing to help him catch up. And secondly, she challenged his notion that he would be the better general election candidate by pointing to exit poll data in West Virginia that claims a third of his supporters there would actually vote for Donald Trump in the fall....

    “Isn't the bottom line between you and Hillary Clinton and who would be the stronger candidate, that she is now fighting a war on two fronts, getting beaten up by Donald Trump on a daily basis?” Mitchell asked. She noted that despite the fact that Trump has now introduced a new “Crazy Bernie” nickname for the Vermont senator, “he has been embracing you, building you up, he likes the fact that you’re taking her down.”

    .... The delegate math may be entirely in Clinton’s favor, but as Sanders continues to make clear, he’s not going anywhere soon. As as Andrea Mitchell learned today, suggesting that he is helping Donald Trump is not going to convince him otherwise.

    The Bernie Sanders campaign saw its California state director leave the campaign just weeks before the crucial California primary.

    Michael Ceraso, formerly the Sanders campaign’s California director, resigned after Ceraso spent the last few weeks pushing for more financial investment on the field in California. The upcoming California primary is absolutely crucial for the Bernie Sanders campaign, according to Politico, and Ceraso reportedly advocated for more digital organizing in the battleground state, where 475 delegates are at stake.

    Bernie Sanders’ California campaign chief resigned, but the campaign itself has yet to comment on the departure. Ceraso led the effort to secure much-needed votes in California, where the Sanders campaign could turn the tide against primary opponent Hillary Clinton. The resignation comes just after the Sanders campaign laid off key campaign staff, including a large number of volunteers who had served the campaign through the early months of the primary season.

    Michael Ceraso, the Sanders campaign’s California director, resigned after serving the Sanders campaign in New Hampshire as deputy state director.

    According to Politico, the Sanders campaign’s strategy in California hasn’t followed in the footsteps of other successful California campaigns, eschewing television ad buys in favor of in-person appearances. Reportedly, primary states had seen much more of a media blitz by Bernie Sanders, with the Sanders campaign outspending the Clinton campaign on TV ads in other battleground states.

    The Los Angeles Times is reporting this most recent departure from the Sanders campaign as a setback for Bernie’s plans to tilt the odds in his favor by winning California, scoring another upset like Michigan. The departing California campaign chief was reportedly in charge of all Bernie Sanders campaign operations in the crucial battleground state of California.

    .... The latest high-profile departure from the Sanders campaign comes amid a significant downturn in fundraising for Bernie Sanders, reports the Los Angeles Times...
