Following the leak of the damning Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails by WikiLeaks, which demonstrated leading members of the party secretly favored Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders, and worked to ensure that the former first lady secured the nomination of the party; many of Sanders’ supporters are angry, saying they will not vote for Clinton in the November elections.
The over 20,000 emails published by Julian Assange and his team, are causing more troubles within the Democratic Party. The party’s unity into the November contest is highly volatile. The leak has already claimed the head of the chairperson of the DNC, Debbie Wasserman Schultz. She has tendered in her resignation letter to the party, as chair of the DNC.
Apart from this, independent voters within the American public have also questioned Clinton and the entire Democratic Party credibility with running the country, if elected.
Beginning when the emails were leaked, Donald Trump’s popularity has shot up, making him lead every single poll against Clinton.
Clinton’s campaign team manager, Robby Mook has openly told CNN in an interview that the emails leaked, is part of a secret agenda by the Russian Federation to have Trump elected over Clinton.
According to Mr Mook, the DNC servers were hacked by hackers – sponsored by Russia to dent the image of the Democratic Party – in order for the American public to vote Trump and his Grand Old Party into office .
CNN reports that the DNC had its files hacked in the middle of June this year,by an individual named “Guccifer 2.0,” possibly from Russia. The hacker reportedly stole opposition research on Trump, accessing the servers of the DNC. It was also alleged that two separate Russian intelligence-linked cyber attack groups also had access to the DNC networks.
Mook said the Russians are supporting Trump, because of NATO concerns. Trump has stated in the past, that he will force all NATO members to honor their financial obligations to the organization, and that any member who fails to do so, will not be protected by the organization if attacked. Mook stated that this policy by Trump plays into the hands of the Russians, and hence their effort to help him win.
Mook said the hackers decided to leak the emails during the party convention in Philadelphia.
“What is disturbing to us is that experts are telling us that Russians broke into the DNC, stole these emails and other experts are now saying that the Russians are now releasing these emails for the purpose of actually helping Donald Trump. I don’t think it’s coincidental that these emails were released on the eve of our convention here, and I think that’s disturbing. I think when you put all this together, it’s a disturbing picture, and voters need to reflect on that. We need to be concerned Trump and his allies made changes to the platform to make it more pro-Russian, and we saw him talking about how NATO shouldn’t intervene [in Russian disputes]. So I think when you put it all together, it’s a disturbing picture,” Mook said.
Meanwhile, in a statement emailed to The Washington Post, the Trump campaign team called the allegation made by Mook, as a big joke.
Senior communications adviser for Trump, Jason Miller wrote in the statement: “This shows that Hillary Clinton will do and say anything to win the election and hold onto power in the rigged system.”
The DNC is supposed to be neutral throughout the primary process between Clinton and Sanders, but the DNC failure to play the neutral role is now costing the party.
WikiLeaks has even announced that its next leak will ensure that Clinton is arrested. Many people are calmly waiting for this leak. As it stands now, the Democratic Party is at boiling point, with the final party outcome looking more dubious by the day.
