Bernie Sanders was right all along. Seems the DNC was in it for Hillary Clinton from the start. With the recent Wiki-Leaks publication proving Sanders’ point, Debbie Wasserman Schultz has announced she will step down as chair of the DNC.
In a statement Sunday, Schultz said the best way to accomplish the election of Clinton is to relinquish her chairmanship when the Democratic National Convention comes to a close Thursday night. But in a sign the Florida congresswoman is still determined to be heard before what could be a crowd of hostile delegates, she also indicated she still planned to speak.
“As party chair, this week 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 Americans,” she said.
Schultz’s imminent departure casts a cloud over the start of the Democrats’ four-day convention as it underlines the remaining divisions between the liberal supporters of Bernie Sanders and the party establishment that’s been loyal to Clinton. DNC vice chair Donna Brazile, a longtime party activist and consultant, will serve as interim chair through the November election.0
