Debbie Wasserman Schultz, in trying to deny culpability in the Democratic National Committee email scandal, inadvertently spoke the truth when she said, “I am very proud of the primary nominating contest that we won.” The fact that she said “we won” shows exactly where she stood in the nominating process.
Further, to claim that the Sanders campaign’s strategy was to make the DNC and DWS “the bogeyman” is absurd at best and shows how desperate she is. The Sanders campaign had nothing to do with the revelation that the DNC, in fact, was discussing how to hurt the Sanders campaign, although they certainly suspected that was the case.
Additionally, if she says she’d be distracted if she and opponent Tim Canova had been interviewed together, how can she expect to be able to debate him? In separate rooms? She needs someone to hold her feet to the fire about her support for predatory lenders and the big polluters. If she does debate Canova it will be interesting to see if she actually answers the questions, or just dances around them.
