DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz: What Happened At Nevada Convention Was Unacceptable, Sanders "Added Fuel To The Fire"


"The Democratic National Committee remains neutral in this primary, based on our rules," said DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz on CNN Tuesday evening. "But when I heard what happened at the Nevada Democratic convention, I was deeply disturbed. Regardless of what any campaign says over process, there should never be a but when it comes to condemning violence.

"Unfortunately, the senator's response was anything but acceptable. It certainly did not condemn the supporters for the violence and added more fuel to the fire," she said.

"The Sanders campaign and Sen. Sanders himself should outright condemn that specific conduct but they also need to take steps to prevent it and make sure their supporters understand the best way to express any frustration over process is to be orderly, not respond with violence and intimidation,” she added. “That needs to be unequivocally condemned, and unfortunately it has not been unequivocally condemned."
