Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz will resign as the head of the Democratic National Committee after the DNC convention this week in Philadelphia. She is expected today to gavel-in the start of the DNC convention being held at the Wells Fargo Center, and gavel it closed on Thursday night. She will then be appointed as the honorary chair of a Hillary Clinton campaign program. But the growing scandal of the DNC emails released by WikiLeaks may force her out before the convention starts. Meanwhile, Crooked Hillary Rodham Clinton denied knowing anything at all about the DNC rigging the primaries in her favor during an interview on CBS ″60 Minutes″. In fact, Crooked Hillary thinks she, herself, has never done anything wrong! Talk about delusional!
Democrats and their emails! What a joke! But then, they have always been corrupt, crooked liars, bent on agendas of destruction and oppression. Thousands of Bernie Sanders supporters marched in protest outside the Wells Fargo Center, braving the heat and humidity. Many of them who were interviewed by The Media say they will not vote for Crooked Hillary. Some will vote for Jill Stein of the Green Party. A few may even vote for Donald Trump. Most will simply not vote at all. Some of the questions for today is how will the DNC email leak story effect the Bernie Sanders speech tonight? Will he still endorse Crooked Hillary? Or will he go rouge and attack the rigged system? How will Elizabeth Warren, scheduled to speak after him, react?
After The Media tried to depict the RNC convention last week as chaotic, it is hard to believe that anyone can say that the DNC convention will be drama free. The theme for tonight is ″United Together″. Oh, really? How united can they possibly be after the WikiLeaks story? Many pundits expect Debbie Wasserman Schultz to get booed off stage in an even worse fashion than that which happened to Lyin′ Ted Cruz last week. Can the Democratic Party afford to be humiliated this badly in such a tight election?
Tight indeed! The latest CNN/ORC poll showed Donald J. Trump getting a HUGE bump, 10 points worth, after the convention. Trump went from 42% to 48% while Crooked Hillary dropped from 49% to 45%! Yes! Trump now leads Crooked Hillary by 4 points. In a 4-way race including Libertarian Gary Johnson and Green Party Jill Stein, Trump′s lead extends to 5 points, 44% to HRC′s 39% with Johnson at 9% and Stein at 3%. When asked if Crooked Hillary is honest and trustworthy, only 30% said yes with 68% saying NO! Even Nate Silver has now placed Donald Trump′s odds for winning the election at over 57%.
Of course, the expectations are that Clinton will get a bump after the DNC convention. However, let us imagine that this email story continues to dominate the news. In fact, we may even see more released documents and emails, some of which might show direct communications between top DNC staffers and the Clinton campaign. As more of the nearly 20,000 emails released already are scrutinized, the picture of collusion becomes even more clear.
One email thread which came directly from Debbie Wasserman Schultz shows plans to complain to NBC News and demand that MSNBC host Mika Bryzenski be fired after calling for Wasserman Schultz to resign. Other emails show that it was quite clear that the plan to have only 6 debates was deliberate in order to limit TV airtime for Bernie Sanders. All of those early debates were televised on weekend nights when TV viewership would be low, including timing them during holidays and when major sporting events were scheduled.
There is no doubt that the Democratic Party is in deep trouble. They are currently very busy trying to spin a story now about how the DNC email leak is tied to a Russian plot to assist the election of Donald Trump. Julian Assange of WikiLeaks denies that the Russians are the source for his cache of DNC emails. However, various sources claim that two Russian hackers, known as ′Cozy Bear′ and ′Fancy Bear′, were behind the leaks. It is true that there are claims that the DNC computer system was hacked by Russian intelligence, as well as systems for the Pentagon, the State Department and the White House. One has to wonder if the Russians also hacked Crooked Hillary′s private email server as well? If they did, then why haven′t they leaked her deleted emails if their goal is to help Trump?
With the DNC National Convention opening tonight at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, the resignation of Debbie Wasserman Schultz over the DNC email leak has turned a drama-free week into utter chaos and turmoil. Today′s theme of ″United Together″ may be true in that the Democratic Party may be united in wanting Debbie Wasserman Schultz to step down immediately. She has become a pariah, as if she wasn′t one all along. But so too is Crooked Hillary Rodham Clinton. She is the most corrupt, dishonest and awful presidential candidate to ever win the Democratic Party nomination. This convention is only going to get worse as the freak show parade begins, featuring cop-haters, degenerates and Socialists. To be topped off Thursday night with Crooked Hillary and her nasal, nagging voice boring the American people with more lies and delusions. We could see a post-convention bump for Donald Trump instead of Crooked Hillary Clinton in the polls. Especially if the protests outside turn violent, or more terrorist acts occur abroad.
