After a major leak of Democratic National Committee emails raised questions about the party's impartiality in the primary election, DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz said on Sunday that she would resign following this week's party convention in Philadelphia. The leak comes at a bad time for Hillary Clinton, who is set to become the first female presidential nominee of a major party but who hopes to win over supporters of her primary rival Bernie Sanders. Some progressives were already unhappy with Clinton's pick of Virginia Senator Tim Kaine as a running mate, which she announced on Friday. In this hour, we'll discuss the ongoing fallout from the DNC leak, analyze the Kaine pick, and preview the convention.
