With news about the WikiLeaks dump showing the Democratic National Committee working to push Hillary Clinton’s nomination rather than remaining neutral, there may be more evidence than ever for a class action lawsuit that has been filed against the Democratic National Committee. But how can you join the fraud lawsuit? There’s still time and we have all the details below.

Here’s what you need to know.


The Lawsuit Is Based on the Allegation That the DNC Supported Clinton in the Primaries Rather Than Remaining Neutral

So far, thousands of Bernie Sanders supporters and other voters have requested to join DNC class action lawsuit, which is being led by Beck & Lee Trial Lawyers, a civil litigation firm based in Miami.

The lawsuit is based on DNC internal emails hacked by Guccifer 2.0 which show the DNC was working behind the scenes to boost Clinton. These emails show that work starting as early as May 2015, a month after Sanders had entered the race. Jared Beck told US Uncut that Article 5 Section 4 of the Democratic Party charter and bylaws requires the chair of the DNC to stay neutral during the primaries:

In the conduct and management of the affairs and procedures of the Democratic National Committee, particularly as they apply to the preparation and conduct of the Presidential nomination process, the Chairperson shall exercise impartiality and evenhandedness as between the Presidential candidates and campaigns. The Chairperson shall be responsible for ensuring that the national officers and staff of the Democratic National Committee maintain impartiality and evenhandedness during the Democratic Party Presidential nominating process.

The most recent leak by WikiLeaks makes it even more apparent that the DNC was working to support Clinton and not remaining neutral.

Beck is also basing the fraud lawsuit on the idea that DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz claimed neutrality, despite evidence that she may have been tipping the scales for Clinton.


Here’s How You Can Join the Lawsuit

If you donated to the DNC after Bernie Sanders entered the race, either directly or through a third-party platform like ActBlue, or if you donated to Bernie Sanders’ campaign during the primaries and caucuses, then you’re eligible to join, US Uncut reported.

Millions of people donated to Sanders’ campaign, resulting in more than $222 million in donations. If you want to join the lawsuit, it’s easy, according to the lawsuit’s Facebook page. Just email dncfraud@jampac.us to be a “class representative” (which simply means that you will be a plaintiff participating in the class action suit.) You’ll need to sign an attorney-client agreement and you won’t have to pay any fees to join. The attorneys may ask you later for proof of your specific donations, which you’ll be able to send by fax or email, but they don’t need that at this time.

If you don’t join, you may still be entitled to relief if the case is won. However, you may miss out on some incentive awards, according to the law firm’s website.


The Lawsuit Covers Claims of Negligence and Fraud

In a YouTube video about the lawsuit, Beck said there were six claims to the case. The first is fraud against the DNC and Wasserman Schultz, stating that they broke legally binding agreements by strategizing for Clinton. The second is negligent misrepresentation. The third is deceptive conduct by claiming they were remaining neutral when they were not. The fourth is is retribution for monetary donations to Sanders’ campaign. The fifth is that the DNC broke its fiduciary duties during the primaries by not holding a fair process. And the sixth is for negligence, claiming that the DNC did not protect donor information from hackers.

  1. You might as well kiss your money’s goodby because the Democrat party has turned toward socialism and you’ll play heck ever getting your money back. Sorry! but Bernie caved into hillary at the end. I wonder how much the payoff was!

  2. Bernie Sanders Never conceded, he never actually said it; therefore Hillary is not the legal nominee. Bernie’s campaign is still alive! Anything can happen come November! Also, his name is on some list, in the event of indictment.

  3. Bernie DID NOT release his delegates and did not Endorse Hillary but said some shyt about party unity then walked off with his Misses. I think he is waiting , as am I and many others, that Hillary WILL BE indited or charged with some crime and will be forced to relinquish her nomination to the only other person with a delegate count, Bernie Sanders.. He is Shrewd and didn’t get to where he is being “a nice guy” but by negotiation and transparency so he can call shyt on those whose deeds are self-serving and not in “Our Best interest” and through consistency his credibility and integrity are “unquestionable” . One thing ALL in congress will say about the man, most hating him for it ,but ALL admit “he is the ONLY HONEST Person in Washington D.C.”.

    • And ADD my name as a class representative, i donated 8 times to Our Man Bernie, 4 times to the DNC and a couple to ActBlue,. I have all my receipts and a copy of my ActBlue Account records.

      • Cani join just as a citizen who is appalled by their dirty tactics? Im voting trump now.sorry to all that disagree but i would have been fine w bernie in retrospective but im not w hrc

  4. I gave $20 in cash at a “Back Bernie” fundraiser. I know I have no proof but I am so mad about this I can’t see straight. I have been lied to for the last time. My family goes back to Mr Jefferson. I will not vote for any democrat as long as the current crooks are in charge.

    • I donated cash at a fundraiser, too. I wish I could join the class action suit just to be involved in it.

  5. Thank you all for doing this. I donated a few hundred dollars & I don’t care if I get it back as long as some people get spanked really hard!!
    At this time I’ve gone to the Green Party!!
    Jill Stein for President!

  6. i registerd to vote democrat to vote for bernie, i was so shocked by the fraud i did not even vote, i am so pissed at my government i need to protest this can never hapen ever again in this fake democracy. fix this crap now.

    • I will change my democratic label to independant. you need to make this right or get lost and good ridence this is not the anerican way , you have become the enemy of americans

  7. not that important whether i get money back but it is logical that since bernie was cheated that the DNC is responsible for my investments. what i want the most is democracy which cant be attained with trump or hillary. it takes leaders who represent the people like jill and bernie etc. dan

  8. IT IS TIME FOR AMERICANS TO FIND OUT WHAT IS GOD?? WHERE IS GOD? BRING GOD BACK INTO SCHOOLS, HOMES AND MOVIES.

  9. I feel that we voters were cheated bt the DNC and Debbie Wasserman Schultz. I feel they should be held accountable for breaking our election laws.
