6. White that is a good point, it won't stop people. Also, it appears the DNC Chair will resign, even

though I might add, nothing was found in those emails which showed actual interference by the DNC:


"The leaks, from January 2015 to May 2016, feature Democratic staffers debating everything from how to deal with challenging media requests to coordinating the committee's message with other powerful interests in Washington.
The emails were leaked from the accounts of seven DNC officials, Wikileaks said. CNN has not independently established the emails' authenticity.
The emails could boost Sanders supporters' charge that the DNC was biased toward Clinton -- a position Sanders himself underscored when he endorsed Wasserman Schultz's primary opponent in her Florida congressional race.
But Baltimore mayor and DNC Secretary Stephanie Rawlings-Blake denied any suggestion that Clinton's camp was treated more favorably by the committee.
"My expectation is beyond your opinion about a candidate, that you act evenly. All of the officers took a pledge of neutrality and I honored that, and I take that very seriously," Rawlings-Blake told CNN's Poppy Harlow. She added: "I know that the chair will hold those employees accountable if they're found to have acted outside of that neutrality and even-handedness."
Asked about the exchanges, Rawlings-Blake said: "Expressing an opinion about a candidate doesn't mean that you're in collusion, doesn't mean that you are actively working against them. And I don't think that that's what it shows."
