Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Chair of the Democratic National Committee, faces the WikiLeaks fallout and will not be among the speakers at the upcoming Democratic Convention in Philadelphia.
Wasserman Schultz and the Democratic Party are facing a class action lawsuit over allegations of a rigged Democratic primary, but it may only be the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the revelations stemming from the recent dump of thousands of emails from DNC staffers by WikiLeaks.
According to The Observer, the suit alleges six different claims related to fraud, misrepresentation and negligence, and calls for financial retribution to the Bernie Sanders donors named in the lawsuit on the grounds that the Democratic primaries had been rigged in favor of Hilary Clinton from the outset.
In looking at documents from the DNC's own computer files, the case is being made that the Democratic Party had its mind made up long before there was a vote to the effect. The lawsuit, which launched on June 28 in Miami, didn't seem to rattle Democratic Party heads. However, a bigger storm was brewing on the horizon as the WikiLeaks scandal broke late this week.
