Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” while commenting on Wikileaks releasing 20,000 emails that were stolen from the Democratic National Committee’s servers that showed a bias for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, a vice chair of the DNC and campaign strategist Donna Brazile said some will be forced to resign over the leaks.
Partial transcript as follows:
STEPHANOPOULOS: And Donna, you get to go first today, because there’s all kinds of trouble on the convention floor here. You’re also vice chair of the Democratic National Committee. You just heard Bernie Sanders say right there that Debbie Wasserman Schultz should resign over those emails, over that bias against him. Will she? Should she?
DONNA BRAZILE, DEMOCRATIC STRATEGIST: Well, first of welcome to Philadelphia. I’m very excited to be here. This is going to be an exciting convention. Now we’re now having 18 million tiny cracks. We’re actually breaking the glass ceiling. So now that I’ve gotten that… First of all, as vice chair, I went over yesterday to see the Sanders campaign. And I apologized. I think, the allegations, the emails, the insensitivity, the stupidity needs to be addressed and we are going the address it.
STEPHANOPOULOS: So, what does that mean?
BRAZILE: It means that the, first of all this is not just a one-day leak. There will be a substantial number of emails that I understand will be leaked over the next couple of days, weeks, months, because it was not a one-month breach or a two-month breach. Come the find out the Russian hackers — and I have no conspiracy theories in my hands, I don’t know.
STEPHANOPOULOS: Robby Mook said some.
BRAZILE: They have been involved. They were in our system at the DNC for well over a year. So, we will learn more. Will some people have to step down, be removed, resign? I’m sure at the end of the day, yes.
