House Democrats just proved they’re desperate to hide the party’s problems, after going to extreme lengths to keep a report under wraps that details the post-election autopsy, per POLITICO.
Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY) presented an investigative report he’s been preparing since the election to a members-only group at the DCCC Thursday evening.
Meeting attendees were not allowed to keep copies of the report and can only view it under DCCC staff supervision.

Some Democratic lawmakers and staffers complained that the cloak-and-dagger secrecy was overblown and actually makes the findings look worse than they are. But the DCCC is sticking by its strategy.
“Like any healthy organization, the DCCC always works to evolve and grow after each election cycle, and we were happy to have Congressman Maloney as part of that effort this year,” spokeswoman Meredith Kelly said.
“This analysis is based on strategic information about our organization and meant for internal purposes, not public consumption,” she added.
Aka, it’s full of dirty laundry.
