Democrats are clearly planning to keep playing the "illegitimate" card on Donald Trump. Jehmu Greene is a FOX News contributor who has been active in the Democratic Party for years. On Friday, she announced her candidacy for DNC chair. She also appeared on FOX and Friends at which time she used the word "allegedly" to describe Trump's election. From Real Clear Politics:
DNC Chair Candidate Jehmu Greene: Trump Was "Allegedly Elected," Dems Have "Mandate" To Resist HOST: What do you make of these remarks from John Lewis? Obviously, he is a Civil Rights icon, but now is claiming that Donald Trump is not legitimate. What say you?

WOLVERINES! Or maybe not. The Obama Administration was quick to blame Russian agents for "hacking the election", despite little evidence supporting this conclusion. There's no question Democratic National Convention servers were hacked, nor is it a question whether Hillary campaign advisor and longtime Clintonite John Podesta's email was hacked. This much we know for certain. See Wikileaks. President Obama was confident Russians were to blame for the hacks, which Democrats have also suggested swayed the outcome of the presidential election.

President Barack Obama has placed more sanctions against Russia and expelled intelligence operatives from America for allegedly interfering with our 2016 election. The sanctions include expelling 35 Russian intelligence officers and closing two Russian compounds. The FBI and Department of Homeland Security found some information that Russians may have phished into the Democratic National Committee over the summer. (Before I go on, I need to correct the media. NO ONE hacked the election. Saying Russia hacked the election implies Russians invaded our voting booths and physically changed votes. That did NOT happen.)

Bernie Sanders has thrown his support behind Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison in the contest to lead the DNC. This should surprise no one because Sanders represents the radical far-left wing of the Democratic Party and that's where Ellison would steer the party as chairman. The Washington Times reports:
Bernie Sanders vows Keith Ellison will usher in ‘real change’ at DNC Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont went to bat Wednesday for Rep. Keith Ellison’s bid to become the next chairman of the Democratic National Committee, saying the status quo is not working and that the Minnesota Democrat has the gumption to move the party in a different direction.

When Wikileaks released Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails in July, people immediately pointed fingers at Russia and cried that the Kremlin wanted to influence the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump, who won by a large margin over Hillary Clinton. But National Security Agency (NSA) Director Mike Rogers dashed those conspiracy theories this past weekend:
“I don't think in the end it had the effect that [the hackers] had hoped it might,” Rogers said during a panel at the Halifax International Security Forum.

The lesson Democrats are learning from the evisceration of the Democratic Party at the state level, the continuing loss of control of Congress, and the defeat in the presidential election is not that Democrats need to move back to the center. No, it's that Democrats need to move not just further to the left, but to the fringe left. Several top Democrats, including Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Chuck Schumer, are backing Keith Ellison, Democratic Congressman from Minnesota, as the next DNC Chair. Daily Kos reports:

Earlier this month, Mary covered the WikiLeaks emails that showed then-CNN contributor, now DNC Chair, Donna Brazile forwarded Team Hillary a question ahead of the second presidential debate.  Not only did the DNC not learn anything from the ouster of Debbie Wasserman Schultz, but now, a tech blogger finds proof that the WikiLeaks emails concerning Brazile are not "doctored" as she claimed. Fox News reports:
After Democratic Party boss Donna Brazile claimed emails showing her apparently tipping off Hillary Clinton to questions at a March town hall were “doctored,” tech sleuths got to work -- and now say they've found proof the emails are authentic.

Donna Brazile has been a fixture for years on talking-head shows. This Insurrectionist has always thought of her as an affable but relatively reserved soul. Reserved? There's another side to Donna that I was obviously missing! Right from the beginning of her Morning Joe appearance today, in which she swayed gracefully in her seat while greeting "brother Ben" Ginsburg, Brazile was a one-woman show of expressive gestures and phrases. Just sit back, roll the video, and appreciate Donna's very animated performance, which ends with her telling Joe Scarborough "I love you—thank you boo."

The hacker Guccifer 2.0 released more documents from the DNC through a person at The Future of Cyber Security Europe conference in London. The documents show evidence of pay to play with donors in order to become ambassadors and staging TV protests. Guccifer also wanted to use this information to show the vulnerabilities within the system. Guccifer shot to fame over the summer when he released documents that showed the DNC conspiring against presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigned as chairwoman right before the DNC convention.

A massive hack of the Democratic National Committee's email system cost former Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Shultz her job. A few weeks after Wikileaks published more than 19,000 hacked emails from top Democratic Party officials, investigators have indicated the personal email accounts of more than 100 Hillary campaign officials and other organizations may have been targeting in the attack. The New York Times reported:
The main targets appear to have been the personal email accounts of Hillary Clinton’s campaign officials and party operatives, along with a number of party organizations.

It was bound to happen. Massive data breech, emails that sure do look like the DNC favored Hillary over Bernie, astronomical debt, a contentious, unified convention -- someone was going to lose their job. Prior to the Democratic National Convention, Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Shultz resigned in disgrace after Wikileaks posted more than 19,000 hacked DNC emails. Post-convention, even more heads are rolling. The DNC's Chief Executive and two other top officials resigned today.

At long last, our national political convention nightmare is over. Thanks to the magic of the internet, we're able to bring you the best moments from this year's Democratic National Convention, sound-free.

Me, when someone brings me a donut:

Hillary got a little bit too excited - Imgur

Yesterday, the real story of Day #3 of the Democratic Party convention was the organized, outside demonstrations in which delegates and other progressives decried the #DNCLeak and Hillary Clinton's rigged nomination. As I suspected, Bernie Sanders' delegates did have something special planned for Day #4 and Clinton's formal acceptance address. And so did Democratic Party operatives, who worked hard to prevent protests, disruptions and distractions.

After a rocky first day, the Democratic Convention showed signs of the benefits of Hollywood backing. Hillary's acceptance night was slickly produced, and obviously geared towards "humanizing" Hillary. If humanizing Hillary was the goal, her acceptance speech was just the opposite. We saw fighting, angry Hillary tonight. That has to have been a strategic decision, with Katy Perry's Fight Song played repeatedly as Hillary took the stage. Nothing is left to chance or done off the cuff by the Clinton campaign. Surely, a focus group somewhere predicted that was the way to go.

The slow drip of hacked correspondence from Democratic National Convention higher ups continues. Wednesday night, Wikileaks published hacked voicemail recordings.

When Kemberlee noted that President Obama, Vice President Biden, and the Democratic VP pick Tim Kaine were featured speakers at the Democratic Party's third convention night, I knew the evening would be a long one. Not surprisingly, Obama's address featured more fear-mongering about Donald Trump than it did his own policy successes. Far more interesting was the story taking place off the stage: #DNCProtests were erupting throughout the evening. #NeverHillary and #DemExit activists were streaming continuous videos of protests against Hillary Clinton's rigged nomination through the speeches. I must say, their efforts were far more interesting and informative.
