Democrats resolve DNC Wikileaks issue amicably: Bernie Sanders is still on Team Hillary Clinton
While the internal email leak proves once and for all that the DNC didnt rig the primary contest for or against anyone, it does reveal that DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz was derelict in her duties. One of her own staffers suggested attacking Bernie Sanders dishonestly on the basis of his religion, and while Debbie clearly never allowed that to be acted upon, she didnt bother to admonish the staffer for making such an inappropriate suggestion to begin with.
Accordingly, Bernie responded by calling on Debbie to resign while making his appearances on the Sunday morning television shows. However, he also made clear that he still fully supports Hillary Clinton for President, which is what matters heading into the convention. And now it turns out Debbie is in fact resigning her position. This is a mere symbolic move, as her term as DNC Chair was set to end at the end of this election anyway, and she had already been replaced in all but title when Hillary Clinton took control of the DNC as the presumptive nominee last month and installed her own leadership.
And so, while the Democratic Party now faces the odd situation of having the party Chair resigning on the eve of its national convention, the upshot is that Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are still fully on the same page. If he had been planning to go rogue, he would have laid the groundwork for it during his morning television appearances. Now that hes gotten his way when it comes to Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the issue is moot. CNN is reporting that Donna Brazile, a broadly liked and unifying figure on the left, is taking over as interim DNC Chair the second time shes done so in her career.
It's a shame the lesson will be lost on those who need it most.
Running for any office so being Chair Person of the DNC would not be interfering with Donna.
Is DWS responsible for communications between staffers she is not copied on?
At last we have found someone held to that higher Hillary Clinton standard!
