On July 22, 2016, the WikiLeaks organization released 19,252 emails and 8,034 attachments from the internal email system of the Democratic National Committee.
These emails revealed that the DNC had taken action against Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) to instead favor Hillary Clinton: a practice that is contrary to the rules of the DNC: an ostensibly neutral party.
 
The emails also gave evidence that various media organizations, including CNN and POLITICO, asked the DNC to approve articles before their publication.  Since the publication of the emails on July 22, DNC chair U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) resigned her post and immediately joined the Hillary Clinton campaign.
 
Disgruntled leftists, who supported Sanders' failed bid for the White House during the primary season , expressed outrage at a rally today in Philadelphia at which Wasserman Schultz had to be escorted out by security officers. 
 
When Sen. Sanders called on leftist supporters today to support Hillary Clinton, as he has done, he was roundly booed. “We must support Hillary Clinton,” said Sanders. When he was met by a chorus of boos, he tried to retrieve control of the room where his erstwhile supporters were gathered, saying “brothers and sisters this is the real world that we live in," while claims that Donald Trump is too "dangerous." In response, the crowd cheered, saying, "We want Bernie!"
