Former Democratic National Committee Chair (DNC) Debbie Wasserman Schultz was forced to step down in July. Sen. Bernie Sanders supporters called for her head after an email hack revealed that DNC resources were being applied in such a way as to benefit now-nominee Hillary Clinton’s presidential run over Sanders’.
But that all seems to be in the past, as made apparent by an interview Wasserman Schultz conducted in Florida on Tuesday.
Wasserman Schultz had a very odd thing to say about the Democratic primary during her tenure as DNC chair: “And we were very focused on making sure, and we successfully ran a primary that was by the book, that followed the rules, and Hillary Clinton was the winner by more than 3 million votes.”
Even Sanders, who endorsed Clinton after he dropped out of the race, said that information from the email hack was disappointing, though he admitted that he was “not shocked.”
Wasserman Schultz was not the only one with a strange reaction following the email leak.
Interim DNC Chair Donna Brazile said that the Democrats were “victims of a cyber crime led by thugs” in an interview.
Brazile said as much despite the questionable details revealed by the leaks.
