(CHICAGOTRIBUNE) — Bernie Sanders expressed anger and disappointment on Sunday with internal emails that showed Democratic officials looking for ways to help Hillary Clinton in the primary, rather than remain neutral.
The emails, released by Wikileaks, have caused friction among Democrats, whose leaders are seeking a unified front at the party’s national convention that begins Monday.
For Sanders and his supporters, the emails confirmed their concerns that Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the chair of the Democratic National Committee, handled the primary unfairly.

“She should resign, period,” Sanders said on ABC’s "This Week." “I think we need a new chair who is going to lead us in a very different direction.”
