Agreed, one of the reasons that Sanders never went as hard as he could have at Hillary (eg the pass on the emails) was that ultimately he always knew that she was likely to be the nominee and he didn't wan't to damage her. Sanders real goal was to push his agenda and he was successful in that regard, minimum wage hikes, college tuition relief, bad trade deals, etc that became staples of the Hillary campaign.Like she gives a toss. The thing about her is that she ran a vanity spoiler campaign. The Libertarians are a different breed, a legitimate third way of ideology and party optioning. All the Greens have done is play the spoiler to Gore and HRC, hard lefties that just love sticking it to the Dems for not being 'pure enough' to suit their egos and fanaticism.
Green Party candidate Jill Stein got more votes than Trump’s victory margin in 3 key states
That's another reason IMO why Stein is doing this besides more vanity theatre and fundraising. She doesn't want to get tagged as the 'morning regrets' and spoiler like Nader did (she will, and that's her vanity again). Fourth, she's prone to conspiracy theories anyway so this one is perfect for her.
Stein is batsh1t insane but even deep down, she must realize that she has much blame to share in the Hillary defeat.
