Included in the batch of hacked emails released by WikiLeaks Monday morning was a new revelation showing the Democratic National Committee was working against Bernie Sanders, to help Clinton.
On January 4, 2016, Sarah Ford, deputy national press secretary for Sanders, sent out an email announcing a Twitter storm campaign intended for January 5 between 12pm – 1pm, along with suggested tweets to use to promote Sanders’ policies.
Just an hour and a half later, Donna Brazile – then the DNC vice-chair who was supposed to be completely unbiased – forwarded the Sanders email to the Clinton staff, tipping them off about the Sanders Twitter storm campaign, with an “FYI.”
Clinton campaign spokesperson Adrienne Elrod emailed Brazile back and said, “Thank you for the heads up on this, Donna.”

In July, just days before the Democratic National Convention, leaked emails revealed that DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz had been biased against Bernie Sanders, including plotting how they could weaken him in the eyes of voters. The fallout was so bad, Wasserman-Schultz was forced to resign.
Vice-Chair Donna Brazile moved up to become the interim chairperson of the Democratic Party through the general election in November.
Brazile was then exposed in a leaked email in July, where she said she would “cuss out the Sanders camp.”
Now Brazile is busted again for showing deeper bias against the Sanders campaign, just as her predecessor had done.
