Democratic strateist Doug Schoen, who worked on Bill Clinton's 1996 campaign and Hillary clinton's 2008 campaign, said that, given the allegations of "rigging" the primaries against Bernie Sanders by the DNC and new revelations about the Clinton email and Uranium One scandals, it is time for a "special prosecutor" to look into the entire mess. 

Schoen, a Harvard Law School and Oxford University graduate,  added that "the entire Democratic Party stinks from the head down, the whole process," and "everyone really has a stain on their hand."

Schoen made his remarks on the Nov. 6 edition of Hannity, where he was joined by Tezlyn Figaro, the national justice director for the Bernie Sanders 2016 presidential campaign. 

Commenting on the Democratic National Committee (DNC) in 2016 and the Hillary Clinton scandals, Schoen said, "Look, I support the general thrust of what you and certainly Tezlyn [Figaro] are saying. People were disenfranchised [in 2016]. But I want to go a step further tonight. The entire Democratic Party stinks from the head down. The whole process. Everyone has really a stain on their hand."

“And with this new revelation tonight on the [Clinton] emails that probably involved 'gross negligence,' it strengthens my call and that of others for a special prosecutor to look at that, [James] Comey, the gross negligence, to look at the email deal more generally, to look at Uranium One," said Schoen. 

“The dossier, all of it," he said. "Because at this point, what we know is getting more and more troubling."

"I say this is a loyal Democrat," said Schoen.  "I know Tezlyn is a loyal Democrat. But as she said and I would say, this is not partisan, this is about -- democracy.”

Host Sean Hannity then remarked, “Listen, you hear me. I am more critical of Republicans. They are weak and timid and they've lost their identity and vision. Their inability to keep promises. I am more critical of them. And you are more critical. What do you make of every Democrat that has gone out there, oh no big deal? Oh, so what, we disenfranchised Bernie people? Really?"

Schoen answered, “I was the only mainstream Democrat that I'm aware of, who publicly disavowed Hillary in the election."

"And my point is, I said there would be a constitutional crisis if she was elected," said Schoen.  "We have one now and she wasn't elected. Tezlyn, it stinks. It's rotten! It's more than rigged.”
