Campaign 2016
The release of thousands of embarrassing internal email exchanges between Democratic officials threatens to overshadow the party’s message on the eve of its convention. Messages released by hackers on Wikileaks apparently show party officials working to boost the Clinton candidacy during the primary.
"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," campaign manager Robby Mook said. "It's no coincidence these emails were released on the eve of the convention."
The email debacle paints a picture that confirms what has long been assumed: The committee is essentially isolated from key elements of the party — including the White House — and left to the devices of its long-standing chair, congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
