DNC chair Wasserman Schultz resigns after WikiLeaks revelations!

on . Posted in Election 2016

PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania (PNN) - July 25, 2016 - The Democrat Party was in turmoil on Sunday afternoon, when just hours ahead of the Democrat National Convention the chairman of the Party - Debbie Wasserman Schultz - resigned amid a furor over the humiliating WikiLeaks email release, hoping to head off a growing rebellion by Bernie Sanders. In a statement, Wasserman Schultz said the best way for the Party to accomplish its goal of putting Clinton in the White House was for her to step down. Sanders had demanded earlier in the day that Wasserman Schultz resign.

"Going forward, the best way for me to accomplish those goals is to step down as Party Chair at the end of this convention," Wasserman Schultz said in a lengthy statement Sunday announcing her resignation. "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 Amerikans."

Wasserman Schultz had became toxic to supporters of Bernie Sanders, who accused her of rigging the Democrat presidential nominating process in favor of Clinton. But many Democrats had privately lost confidence in her leadership as well. Emails posted online by WikiLeaks and apparently stolen by hackers allegedly working for the Russian government (who as we noted earlier thoroughly denied such allegations) showed a plot by Democrat officials to damage Sanders.

The furor was a blow to a Party keen on projecting stability in contrast to the volatility of the Republican National Convention. According to some, the DNC is now on pace to be far more scandalous than anything the Republicans could have come up with, while the number of Bernie Sanders protesters overshadows the protesters that attended the RNC in Cleveland, Ohio.

In a shocking “beyond caring what the average Joe thinks” move, Hillary Clinton announced that Debbie Wasserman Schultz will serve as an honorary chair on Clinton's campaign, almost as if she is doing her best to provoke Bernie Sanders fans.

Hillary Clinton thanked her "long time friend" after the Florida congresswoman's decision to step down as chair of the Democrat National Committee.

"I am grateful to Debbie for getting the Democrat Party to this year's historic convention in Philadelphia, and I know that this week's events will be a success thanks to her hard work and leadership," said outlaw Clinton.

She faced growing pressure to resign Sunday in the aftermath of the release of thousands of embarrassing internal email exchanges among Democrat officials, an episode that has pitched the Party into turmoil on the eve of a convention that was promised to showcase unity.

"I would ask her to step aside," said David Axelrod, a former adviser to illegitimate dictator President Barack Obama. "I would ask her to step aside because she's a distraction on a week that is Hillary Clinton's week."

Other senior Democrats echoed that sentiment, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss a sensitive internal matter. These Democrats indicated that the Clinton campaign would like the resignation to come Sunday.
