WikiLeaks kept its promise to release a series of emails related to Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and the DNC. The emails show the DNC working against Bernie Sanders during the primary, with some startling tidbits such as how the DNC considered denying a Bernie delegate admittance to a fundraiser because she supported Bernie.
The DNC was also only concerned about reduced polling locations in Rhode Island because it might give Sanders’ supporters more reasons to complain. Many of these emails are part of the emails discovered from a hack of the DNC by Guccifer 2. With 19,252 emails released from the Democratic National Committee, including 891 documents and 175 spreadsheets, it can be a little overwhelming to go through them all.
That’s why we’re providing in-depth coverage of the most interesting Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders emails in this gallery. The emails are inspiring Sanders supporters even more to stage big protests in Philadelphia during the Convention, and they might provide more evidence for a DNC class action lawsuit saying the primaries were rigged.
Click through the gallery to see each of the most important emails, along with a detailed explanation. Note: Some of these are hard to read, so we provided a direct link to where WikiLeaks posted the email, if you need to see it more clearly.
We will also be listing each topic below, so you can go directly to the messages of interest to you, if you prefer. Keep an eye on this story, as we will update it with more interesting emails as they are found. WikiLeaks said it was releasing a “series” of documents, so there may be more to come.
