Trump Campaign: DNC 'Emails Show It Was Clearly a Rigged System'

The leaked emails from the Democratic National Committee prove that party officials “rigged” the primary process to ensure that Hillary Clinton would be their presidential nominee, according to the chairman of the Donald Trump campaign.

“What’s in those emails show it was clearly a rigged system,” the aide, Paul Manafort, said during an interview on ABC. “Bernie Sanders never had a chance, and frankly, I think you’re going to see some of that resentment boil over this week in Philly.” He was referring to the Democratic National Convention, which began Monday.

The Hill reported that the emails, which WikiLeaks released Friday, include messages indicating that Democratic leaders conspired to derail Sanders’ White House bid. DNC press secretary Mark Paustenbach wrote to communications director Luis Miranda on May 21, suggesting that Clinton staffers should tell the news media the Sanders “campaign was a mess.”

“The establishment and the special interests picked their candidate, Hillary Clinton, and made sure nothing the people were going to do or say were going to interfere with her selection,” Manafort alleged.

Sanders and his supporters criticized the DNC for not scheduling more debates between the senator and Clinton. They also accused party officials of creating a process that unfairly awarded more national convention delegates to the former secretary of state.
