Elizabeth Warren thinks the 2016 primary was rigged in Hillary Clinton's favor

The former interim head of the Democratic Party just accused Hillary Clinton's campaign of "unethical" conduct that "compromised the party's integrity". Referring to allegations of Clinton's alleged unfair win of the Democratic primaries, he tweeted, "Bernie Sanders supporters have every right to be apoplectic of the complete theft of the Dem primary by Crooked Hillary!" and "I always felt I would be running and winning against Bernie Sanders, not Crooked H, without cheating, I was right".

In her account of the 2016 campaign "What Happened", Clinton wrote that Sanders "had to resort to innuendo and impugning my character" because they largely agreed on the issues.

Sanders himself has somewhat toned down his criticism of the DNC during that span, but what he says - especially given he seems to want to run again in 2020 - will go a long way in determining how the party moves forward.

"It was obviously a shocking revelation", Weaver said on CNN Friday". Many of those emails described above came after it was abundantly clear that Clinton would be the nominee, barring a massive and nearly impossible shift in primary votes. "I don't think any of us imagined that there was actually a formal arrangement giving the Clinton campaign control of the DNC".

Donna Brazile, the former interim chair of the Democratic National Committee, published an excerpt of her forthcoming book, "Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns that Put Donald Trump in the White House", in Politico.

"Her campaign had the right of refusal of who would be the party communications director, and it would make final decisions on all the other staff", Brazile wrote. Sanders (I-Vt.). It centers on a fundraising agreement that Clinton's campaign signed with the DNC that essentially kept the committee afloat and allowed her aides to control the party.

A disgraced Schultz was forced to step down in July 2016 after an email leak revealed that DNC staffers aided Clinton's campaign over Sanders' in the primary, though Schultz later argued that the primary was "by the books" and "followed the rules".

"The DNC must remain neutral in the presidential primary process, and there shouldn't even be a perception that the DNC is interfering in that process", Ms Hinojosa said. But it appears the damage has been done.

When asked by PBS NewsHour's Judy Woodruff whether she thought the election was rigged, Warren said: "I think it was".

"But what we've got to do as Democrats now, is we've got to hold this party accountable", she said, according to the BBC. The American public, he said, "deserves it".
