    even more Breaking: the Ruskis did it
    "Hillary Clinton's campaign manager, Robby Mook, indicated that he believes "Russian state actors" had some involvement in the leaked Democratic National Committee emails that show top Democrats writing off Sen. Bernie Sanders's chances during the primaries.

    "There's evidence Russian state actors broke into the DNC, stole those emails, and there are experts saying they are releasing these emails for the purpose of helping Donald Trump," Mook told CNN's Jake Tapper in an interview that aired Sunday on "State of the Union." "It's no coincidence these emails were released on the eve of the convention."

    Totally. If he'd only been able to keep his dad's commie connections to the JFK assassination under wraps Putin probably wouldn't have been pissed at his distant cousin Ted. ;)

    Hilly is not so good at hiding emails. Someone should take the girl's computer away until she learns how to use it responsibly. Do they have computers in the White House?

    Welcome to the sausage factory, guys.

    This article seems more than plausible:

    Hillary Clinton and her team aren’t thrilled that the head of the Democratic National Committee was forced out on the eve of the nominee’s coronation — but they aren’t exactly distraught to see Debbie Wasserman Schultz booted from the tent.

    Several senior Democratic officials with ties to Hillary and Bill Clinton told POLITICO that campaign higher-ups have been trying to replace the oft-off-message Florida congresswoman from the start of Clinton’s campaign late last year.

    John Podesta, Clinton’s campaign chairman — and a former top adviser to Barack Obama — broached the idea of replacing Wasserman Schultz as early as last fall, only to be rebuffed by the president’s team, according to two people with direct knowledge of the conversation.

    “It came down to the fact that the president didn’t want the hassle of getting rid of Debbie,” said a former top Obama adviser. “It’s been a huge problem for the Clintons, but the president just didn’t want the headache of Debbie bad-mouthing him. ... It was a huge pain in the ****.”

    The Obama team — especially 2012 campaign manager Jim Messina — long viewed Wasserman Schultz as a major campaign liability, questioning her fundraising prowess and her tendency to appoint personal aides to positions of authority, prioritizing loyalty over competence and effectiveness as a spokesperson for Democrats. At the time, senior campaign officials leaked details of an internal survey, conducted by pollster David Binder, showing Wasserman Schultz was the least-liked Obama surrogate; she later dismissed the report as “National Enquirer” dross...


    and lots more.

    PHILADELPHIA — Leaked emails show the Democratic National Committee scrambled this spring to conceal the details of a joint fundraising arrangement with Hillary Clinton that funneled money through state Democratic parties.
    During the three-month period when the DNC was working to spin the situation, state parties kept less than one half of one percent of the $82 million raised through the arrangement — validating concerns raised by campaign finance watchdogs, state party allies and Bernie Sanders supporters.

    The arrangement, called the Hillary Victory Fund, allowed the Clinton campaign to seek contributions of hundreds of thousands of dollars to attend extravagant fundraisers including a dinner at George Clooney’s house and a concert at Radio City Music Hall featuring Katy Perry and Elton John. That’s resulted in criticism for Clinton, who has made opposition to big money in politics a key plank in her campaign platform.

    So wait Hillary gets money for the Democratic Party, which btw goes to down ticket races, and you are troubled that Bernie isn't getting any of it? All of this is legal btw.

And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    This entire DNC leak is much ado about nothing. Since the Dems didn't want to commit suicide, they were understandably reluctant to back the socialist with Millennial supporters. Not really a big shock.

    Obviously the Russian involvement in a US election is very concerning, but the actual content. . .meh.

    The Russians win either way.

    True enough. But can you imagine how the democrats would would be running with this if the roles were reversed? We would hear about it for the next 20 elections. Yet here they are trying to cover up and defend the party who screwed their own people.

    Benghazi!!!!!
