Bid to block Bernie Sanders? DNC adopts rule change, wants only avowed Democrats to run

  Bid to block Bernie Sanders? DNC adopts rule change, wants only avowed Democrats to run The Democratic National Committee adopted a new rule Friday aimed at preventing non-Democrats, such as independent U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, from seeking the party’s 2020 presidential nomination, reports said. The rule change, adopted at a DNC meeting in Providence, R.I., requires all candidates for the party’s nomination to “run and serve” as Democrats, Yahoo News reported.Some supporters of Sanders -- who caucuses with the Democrats despite declining to declare a party affiliation -- say the move was motivated by “spite” after Sanders gave Hillary Clinton a run for her money during the Democratic primaries in 2016.

A 19-year-old Maryland man has been indicted on charges that he threatened to murder two high-profile liberal senators — Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Kamala Harris of California — and to injure marchers at a gun control rally in Washington earlier this year.

Democratic Senators Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris launch a single-payer healthcare bill that could kill more Americans than terrorists or guns combined. The Estopinans, who are from Baltimore, say that the case of Charlie Gard inspired them to come forward with their story, who add

A newly revealed indictment shows that a man is accused of threatening to kill Senators Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) and Kamala Harris (D-California). The defendant also threatened to hurt participants at the “March for Our Lives” gun control rally, prosecutors said.

Nicholas Bukoski faces two counts of threatening to assault and murder a U.S. congressmember, and three counts of transmitting threats via interstate commerce. Sanders ran as a Democrat in the 2016 presidential election, and he is considered a likely candidate in 2020. Harris’ name has also been floated as a possible candidate in the next race, and she hasn’t denied that she plans on running.

Obama meets with possible 2020 presidential contenders: report

  Obama meets with possible 2020 presidential contenders: report Former President Obama has been privately meeting with possible 2020 Democratic presidential candidates, Politico reported Monday.Obama has reportedly held one-on-one sessions with at least nine candidates in his D.C. office over the past few months, including former Vice President Biden, Sens. Ber nie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick (D).Obama's office declined to comment to Politico."The president was generous with his time and advice, and he was excited to talk about the future," one individual with knowledge of the meetings told Politico.

Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) announced she will co-sponsor Sen . Bernie Sanders ' (I-Vt.) single-payer health-care bill when it is introduced next month. Harris said she intends to co-sponsor "the Medicare-for-all bill because it's just the right thing to do."

A grand jury has charged a man with threatening to harm liberal Sens . Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris and protesters who took part in the March for Our Lives rally in support of stricter gun control.

You can read the full indictment here, but details remain scant on the precise nature of those alleged threats. POLITICO first reported on the five-count indictment, filed with the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. A Bukoski lawyer did not immediately respond to a request for comment in that story. Each threat allegedly occurred March 24, the same day as the rally in question. Bukowski was indicted in April, but it was only unsealed last week after prosecutors voiced concern about tipping him off about the arrest warrant.

“Once the bench warrant issues, law enforcement will begin to investigate ways in which to secure the arrest of the defendant,” U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu wrote in a filing. “The public disclosure of this Indictment at this time could jeopardize future plans to secure the Defendant’s arrest, because such disclosure could result in alerting the defendant of the warrant.”

Sarah Sanders swipes back at report she's planning to leave White House .
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders hit back Wednesday night against reports that she was considering leaving her role, saying she “loves” her job and is “honored” to work with President Trump. Sanders was replying to an earlier CBS News report that both she and deputy press secretary Raj Shah have considered leaving their positions in the administration.“Does @CBSNews know something I don’t about my plans and my future,” Sanders asked in a tweet. “I was at my daughter’s year-end Kindergarten event and they ran a story about my ‘plans to leave the WH’ without even talking to me.
