    http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/onpolitics/2016/07/24/wasserman-schultz-democratic-convention/87499602/The chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee will not speak at this week’s convention in Philadelphia, according to CNN.

    The decision to keep Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz from speaking — though CNN reports she will appear to gavel the convention's opening and close— follows a dump of emails by WIkileaks from top officials at the DNC that seem to show some top employees were conspiring to hurt the candidacy of Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton's main rival for the Democratic nomination during the primary campaign.

    She will be resigning after the convention and Brazil will take over as interim chairwoman of the DNC. I think that's a good thing because she's become a distraction. If I were Brazil, I would also fire the DNC people who demonstrated extreme bias towards HRC in order to put this sordid issue to rest. Then, I would focus my attention on finding the DNC hacker and making sure that he/she is revealed and prosecuted because it would appear that he/she, WikiLeaks, Putin and the Donald have some form of formal or informal understanding.

    Agreed.

    I'd not be surprised to see Putin Trump & Assange confirmed allies. More on that after the opening of the Moscow Trump Plaza.
