The live stream video on the California Democratic Party’s website crashed Saturday while broadcasting speeches by the party’s presidential hopefuls, who were delivering their remarks at the California Democratic 2019 State Convention in San Francisco over the weekend.

“Blue wave rolling,” read the header on the California Democratic Party’s website promoting its state convention. The live stream video broadcasting the event, however, was not rolling.

More than a dozen 2020 Democrat presidential candidates were on the agenda to speak at the California Democrats state convention in San Francisco over the weekend, but when Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) took the stage on Saturday, the live stream video crashed on the Party’s website, and was never revived, as first reported by San Francisco Chronicle.

The high-res video appeared to have been too much for the California Democrat Party’s website to handle, as it attempted to carry hours of speeches by presidential hopefuls at its event in San Francisco. All that remained was a low-quality video feed on the party’s Facebook page.

Nevertheless, the event went on, and so did Sen. Harris’ speech, which included promoting the Russia conspiracy hoax and accusing President Donald Trump of obstructing justice and hiring Attorney General William Barr to “clean up the crime scene.”

“He’s got us distracted with those crazy tweets while he’s gutting environmental regulations so children won’t be able to drink clean water and breathe clean air,” she said.

“We need to begin impeachment proceedings and we need a new commander in chief,” Harris continued. “We need to fight hate wherever it appears — racism, Antisemitism, homophobia, transphobia, Islamophobia.”
