Wikileaks DNC email scandal: Next Question - Did Hilary Clinton know of the DNC's actions against Bernie Sanders?
Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Democratic National Committee Chair, has resigned, effective immediately following the Democratic Party convention, after long deliberations which she faught hard to prevent.
The scandal which broke Friday after Wikileaks release a swath of internal DNC emails, some of which showed that top DNC officials were actively engaged in campaigning against Bernie Sanders and on behalf of the Clinton campaign. I wrote about one of these telling emails earlier today.
Now we're learning (see below) that Hilary Clinton has given Debbie Wasserman Schultz a new job (a leadership role) on her campaign team. I find this almost commical if not completely unbelievable because... Why would you give a person who has just deligitamized your entire presidential nomination campaign a job on your campaign?
Hello Hillary, are you there? Do you not realize that this makes you look complicit in the DNC's actions to favour your campaign over Bernie Sanders'?
So, I have to ask Hilary: Did you know? If yes, when did you know? Did you endorse it? Was Tim Kaine involved as the former DNC Chair? He did endorse you long before you announced. Was President Obama aware of the corruption that was taking place within his own party?
An unbelievable turn of events. If you want an example of Hilary Clinton's poor judgement, this is a perfect one because a smart politician would have cut all ties with Wasserman Schultz immediately, until well after the election campaign is over.
