Bill Clinton to Tom Perez: Keep Bernie Supporters Out of the DNC

NBC's Jonathan Allen told C-SPAN that Bill Clinton has given explicit instructions to Tom Perez on keeping Sanders-backers out of the Democratic organization.

In an appearance on C-SPAN’s “Washington Journal,” NBC’s Jonathan Allen claimed that Bill Clinton is sabotaging the efforts of the Bernie Sanders wing of the party by preventing them from becoming part of the Democratic Party establishment.

“There’s just been a clash between these two sides that has resumed,” he said. “The hostilities [between the Clinton and Sanders camps] that were put aside at the Democratic convention resumed the minute that Donald Trump was elected.”

Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez has “gotten instructions from Bill Clinton not to let the party go to the Bernie Sanders folks,” Allen said during the interview.

Relations between the DNC and the Sanders camp are already fraught, with the senator refusing to turn over his 2016 email lists to the national party. Allen’s revelations could only widen the divide.
