Democrats have some major problems on the eve of their convention in Philadelphia. When WikiLeaks showed Democrat party chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz had a thumb (more like a fist) on the scale to ensure Hillary Clinton won the nomination Wasserman Schultz announced that she will step down as Chairwoman of the DNC at the end of the convention. It’s not clear if she will still speak at the convention but it appears unlikely. More here. Fans of Bernie Sanders cheered in Philadelphia when Wasserman Shultz’s’ resignation was announced. Sanders had always known the democrat’s system for nominating a candidate was rigged. Wasserman Schultz said,
Going forward, the best way for me to accomplish those goals [which include electing Clinton president] is to step down as Party Chair at the end of this convention,” Wasserman Schultz said in the statement.
As Party Chair, this week I will open and close the Convention and I will address our delegates about the stakes involved in this election not only for Democrats, but for all Americans,
This evening on “60 Minutes” online Hillary was asked if she thought it would be improper for the Democrat party to help one candidate (Hillary) to win the nomination over another candidate (Sanders). Hillary’s response, “I don’t know”. What??? She doesn’t know?? Really?
An extensive list of all the Wikileaks emails between various staffers at the DNC can be found here. Some of these are disgusting such as talking about killing horses for insurance money and making fun of a Black woman’s name. They also discuss a 200K for a dinner for Hillary. Among the worst were attempts to use Bernie Sanders’ religion against him in the south. Check the whole list, there are so many disgusting emails, it’s no wonder Debbie Wasserman Schultz must resign.
Wikileaks claim there is much more to come, including leaks from Hillary’s private server when she was Secretary of State. This week could be wild ride for the Democrat National Convention!
