The best zinger of the 8th democratic debate was made by Bernie Sanders — here, in his own words. (That was after Hillary Clinton claimed she "took on Wall Street", which was when she gave a paid speech to Nasdaq on December 5, 2007.)
As of this post, you can re-play the entire 8th Democratic Debate in Florida at Fusion's channel on YouTube
(presented by Univision & The Washington Post) For convenience, I made a highlights video for those that don't have the time.
Full transcript of the debate here:
A great deal of the debate was about immigration reform, American foreign policy in Central America, refugees, normalizing relations with Cuba, Sanders remarks about Fidel Castro from 1985, deporting children and splitting families apart, driver’s licenses for the undocumented, securing the border (etc.) — and about Clinton's emails, climate change and Benghazi.
The 13-minute video below only covers the subjects of the Goldman Sach's transcripts, campaign contributions, Wall Street reform, the Koch brothers, the Export/Import bank, the auto bailout, the fossil fuel industry and the revolving door (lobbyists).
The video below is JUST ABOUT THE EMAILS
When Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, a cable went out (under her signature) warning employees to "avoid conducting official Department business from your personal email accounts."
So Clinton’s decision to use a private email system for official business was highly unusual and flouted State Department procedures, even if not expressly prohibited by law at the time.
Moreover, Clinton appears to have not complied with the requirement to turn over her business-related emails before she left government service.
Today her pundits on the cable news channels were calling the FBI's investigation a "security review" — although the FBI does no such reviews.
To be clear, just like Obama's previous Attorney General (Eric Holder) did not prosecute any bankers, neither will Obama's current Attorney General (Loretta Lynch) prosecute anyone in his administration for poison water in Flint Michigan, or for security breeches on private email servers.
So during the 8th Democratic debate, when asked if she will drop out of the presidential race if she is indicted over emails, she said "Oh for goodness - that is not going to happen. I am not going to even answer that question."
Through his White House press spokesperson, Obama has essentially endorsed Hillary Clinton, as did Obama's previous Attorney General (Eric Holder); so there is NO WAY IN HELL, no matter what Hillary Clinton has every done that may be illegal, she will never be prosecuted for anything...and she knows that.
Hillary Clinton and Obama's administration is ABOVE THE LAW.As of this post: Who won the 8th Democratic debate?

Check out my clips from the 7th debate
Bernie Sanders, in a historical upset, just recently beat Hillary Clinton to win the
State of Michigan --- but the mainstream media is mostly emphasizing
Hillary's large lead in delegates (because she has almost ALL the
super-delegates pledged so far). But here 's what they are under-reporting:
There are 4,763 total Democratic delegates
- 770 super-delegates
= 3,993 regular delegates (allocated by primaries/caucuses)
2,383 delegates are needed for the party nomination
- 770 super-delegates
1,613 outstanding regular delegates needed for nomination
Excluding super-delegates, regular delegates allocated so far as of March 9, 2016:
Super-delegates can change their mind any time up until the DNC convention in July. If they don't vote with the popular vote, that could spell big trouble for the political insiders (and Bernie could even run as an Independent -- or his supporters could write in his name -- or they could vote Republican -- or they might not vote at all.)
But the media (especially on the cable news stations) are always totaling the delegate count with the super-delegates to make the election appear as though it's already a done deal for Hillary.
