July 25, the Democratic National Convention will begin in Philadelphia,
Pa. To commemorate the event and its embrace of corrupt politician
Hillary Clinton as the Democratic nominee, Wikileaks is releasing
thousands of DNC/Clinton emails.
In its recent leak of 20,000 DNC emails from January 2015 to May 2016,
DNC staff discuss how to deal with Bernie Sanders’ popularity as a
challenge to Clinton’s candidacy. Instead of treating Sanders as a
viable candidate for the Democratic ticket, the DNC worked against him
and his campaign to ensure Clinton received the nomination.
One email from DNC Deputy Communications Director to several DNC
staffers cites two news articles showing Sanders leading in Rhode Island
and the limited number of polling locations in the state: “If she
outperforms this polling, the Bernie camp will go nuts and allege
misconduct. They’ll probably complain regardless, actually.”
