Now that the Democrats have been caught red handed in a massive WikiLeaks scandal, do you finally believe that the system is rigged? Or do you think that their newly revealed secrets don’t mean anything?
Here’s what Trump’s campaign had to say about it:
Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort: DNC email leak proves what Donald Trump has been saying about "rigged system." https://t.co/JQIlKU3KVW

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump‘s campaign chairman said Sunday that the Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) leaked emails show the party favored presumptive presidential nominee Hillary Clinton from the start.
“What’s in those emails show it was clearly a rigged system,” Paul Manafort said on ABC’s “This Week.”
“Bernie Sanders never had a chance, and frankly, I think you’re going to see some of that resentment boil over this week [at the Democratic National Convention] in Philly.”

Even Bernie Sanders supporters are ticked about this. Take a look at what they’re doing in Philadelphia to block the DNC:
Thousands of demonstrators took to Philadelphia’s sweltering streets Sunday, chanting and beating drums in the first major protests ahead of the Democratic National Convention, as the city wilts during a heat wave.
Throngs of clean energy activists jammed a major thoroughfare in their mile-long march from Philadelphia’s City Hall to Independence Mall, near the Liberty Bell.
Bernie Sanders‘s supporters chanted ‘Hell No, DNC, we won’t vote for Hillary’ and ‘This is what democracy looks like,’ the marchers headed from City Hall down Broad Street, the main north-south artery that leads from downtown to the convention site at the Wells Fargo Center about 4 miles away.
And supporters of Sanders, who held up signs call calling for Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee to be fired, got their wish after she announced her resignation late Sunday.
Others held anti-fracking and anti-pipeline signs, some with illustrations like a train surrounded by a fireball and the words ‘No Exploding Trains.’ Others held ‘Bernie or Bust’ signs.
Sam Miller, 82, traveled from Erie, Pennsylvania, to join the march that stretched several blocks and across a wide street as temperatures in the city soared into the mid-90s. He said he was inspired because ‘fracking is invading Mother Earth.’
Like in Cleveland, police were using bicycles as barricades along the streets, and volunteers were handing out water to marchers. Shoppers came out of stores to watch the march like a parade.
Chants of ‘Bernie! Bernie!’ were met by counter echoes of ‘Hillary! Hillary!’
Bernie Sanders supporters expect about 3,000 protesters will join them in a march from City Hall to a park near the convention site in the afternoon.
Many carried Sanders signs, and a huge Bernie Sanders puppet was also a part of the march.
