Social Green Party nominee in last year’s presidential election, Jill Stein, went on condemning DNC leaders publicly last Friday. She criticized them for cooperating with the media in undermining Sen. Bernie Sanders during the campaign and now for pushing absurd conspiracy theories about Russia.
Via The Blaze:
In a blistering tweet, Stein wrote, “Unlike the Dems, I didn’t sabotage Bernie Sanders in the primaries, then try to cover my tracks with ludicrous Russia conspiracy theories.”

Jill Stein’s critics against the DNC, which proved to have a lot of support by the people, ignited an outrage among liberals and Dems supporters.
“Jill, any truth to the rumor that you’re checking prices for one-way flights to countries that don’t have extradition treaties with the US?” replied Jon Cooper, chairman of the Democratic Coalition.
“Delete your account,” wrote Jon Frosch, an editor for the Hollywood Reporter.
“No need to cover tracks when it is out in the open, dear. Rub more crystals,” wrote Bros4America, a left-wing “resistance” advocacy group.
“Kindly return our $7 million dollars,” [sic] wrote Bill Shapiro, the former editor-in-chief of LIFE Magazine, referencing the $7.3 million in donations Stein received in 2016 to challenge President Donald Trump’s election victories in key swing states.
A contributor for the liberal Daily Beast, published a photo of Jill Stein sitting with Russian President Vladimir Putin at a dinner back in 2015.

He also wrote on Friday:
“Dem elites” are wasting time promoting “conspiracy theories.”
“If Dem elites want to waste their time with conspiracy theories, that’s on them. We’re busy organizing a grassroots party for the people,” Stein said.

Stein’s unpopularity with some within the DNC comes from her decision to run in 2016 despite having virtually no chance of winning, taking liberal voters away from Clinton’s campaign. Although Jill Stein’s policy positions are clearly on the far left, they mostly align with the liberal wing of the Democratic Party.
During last year’s presidential election Jill Stein was running on the platform that called for “Protecting Mother Earth” by switching to 100 percent renewable energy by 2030 and ending “destructive energy extraction,” such as “fracking” and “offshore drilling.”
Stein also called for the government to guarantee every American a job, the creation of “free universal child care” and the implementation of a national single-payer health care system.
Statistics say that Jill Stein received a total of 1.44 million votes in the 2016 election, about 1.1 percent of all votes.
