The Democratic National Convention is off to a rough start already, and it hasn’t even started. Hillary Clinton has yet another email problem on her hands.
It is unclear how Wikileaks obtained the records, but the release comes weeks after a hacker (or hackers) going by the name Guccifer 2.0 began releasing records obtained through the DNC’s computer systems. The hacker claims to be Romanian, but many suspect that the records were taken by a team of Russian hackers. Guccifer 2.0 has said that they obtained DNC emails. Other documents released by the hacker(s) include internal planning memos and databases of Democratic donors.
The emails come from the accounts of seven DNC officials: communications director Luis Miranda, national finance director Jordon Kaplan, finance chief of staff Scott Comer, finance director of data and strategic initiatives Daniel Parrish, finance director Allen Zachary, senior advisor Andrew Wright and Northern California Finance Director and the finance director for northern California, Robert Stowe. The emails range in date from Jan. 2015 to May 25 of this year.
I am predicting these emails will continue to reveal a clear DNC bias favoring Hillary Clinton and against Bernie Sanders, a narrative that has been pretty much speculation without evidence- until now. So far, the leaked emails have revealed DNC officials mulling over narratives that question the competence of the Sanders campaign, and suggest planting gotcha questions that put Sanders’ faith into question.
Get your popcorn everybody, because this should be fun to watch.
