"If the Democratic Party is to be successful in November, it is imperative that all state parties treat our campaign supporters with fairness and the respect that they have earned," Sanders said in a statement on the Nevada incident.

Sanders - who said he condemns violence and personal harassment of individuals - leveled some of the same complaints his supporters did, arguing that state party Chairwoman Roberta Lange did not allow a headcount on a disputed rules change. He also argued that 64 delegates to the state convention were not given a hearing before being ruled ineligible.

The state party disputed the Sanders campaign's interpretation of the events. It said some delegates did not show up at the convention and others were disqualified because they were not registered as Democrats in time.

I believe Clinton's legal problems are the key to the election. Here are some pertinent quotes on the matter.

FBI director on Clinton email probe: 'There's no special set of rules'

“I think [Clinton] is vulnerable, but whether she enjoys what I call ‘elite immunity,’ we don’t know. For much lesser violations people have lost their jobs. But when you get to the higher ranks, it’s like another set of rules.”
Former NSA Director Michael Hayden: I Would Be Surprised If Foreign Intelligence Services Were Not Snooping Around With Hillary Clinton's Emails

What do we know from the articles above?

1. The FBI has no special set of rules for any investigation.

2. Former NSA and CIA Director Michael Hayden doesn't know if Clinton has ‘elite immunity.'

I don't understand how anyone can claim to be sure Hillary Clinton won't be indicted considering the two articles directly above.

The Huffington Post is reporting the FBI will publicly disclose its findings concerning the Clinton investigation.

What do superdelegates loyal to Clinton think will happen to this lead after the FBI discloses its findings?
Bernie Sanders Must Campaign Harder Than Ever and Expect to Win

That's something I didn't see coming. If it's true, an indictment will not be needed to stop Hillary Clinton, one way or another IMHO.

Gawd forbid Bernie supporters trying to do what delegates are supposed to do. Hillary is only seeing a preview of what is to come. My guess is if Hillary reaches the delegate count in California then Bernie wont be asked to the convention, they don't want anything televised to have any hiccups for Hillary, they don't want the world to see Bernies massive support which is why they never show crowds at his rallies or his rallies in general. If they don't let Bernie go to the convention then I will protest with You guys with my Trump sign ! Just remember Bernie people, You guys are younger, more energetic, stronger and more cunning than Hillary supporters, GIVE EM HELL !
