Democratic Party Remains Divided as Hillary Clinton Prepares to be Announced Nominee

The Democratic Party will hold their four-day convention on Monday to nominate Hillary Clinton going into the general election. Breaking news on Sunday that Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigned from her position as head of the Democratic National Committee has led to a divided party going into the convention.

Schultz resigned from her position after a leak of 19,000 DNC emails showed that the Democratic party worked to undermine the Bernie Sanders campaign in favor of Hillary Clinton.

Sanders supporters showed dismay and anger on Sunday, with protests breaking out following the leak.

WikiLeaks released the DNC emails on Friday. Among the emails are DNC members stating that they would undercut Sanders by questioning his Jewish heritage and claim that he was really an atheist.

Clinton’s Vice President choice, Tim Kaine of Virginia, further upset Sanders’ supporters who had hoped Clinton would pick liberal to join her on the ticket. Elizabeth Warren, Senator of Massachusetts, was a favorite of Sanders’ supporters.

Norman Solomon, a Sanders supporter and delegate from California questioned why Schultz is waiting until after the convention to step down from her position.

“Now the question looms over us here in Philadelphia. Why not immediately? Why wait till the end of the week?” he stated.

Clinton’s campaign has asserted that the Russians leaked the emails in an effort to sway the vote in Trump’s favor.
