Did Hillary Clinton Break DNC Debate Rules?


One of the rules of Democratic debates, put in place by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) is that a candidate cannot meet with their staff during the debate, including during breaks.

But this week, Fox News’ Chief White House Correspondent Ed Henry tweeted a picture of Clinton with members of her staff during what he says was a debate break:

After the photo was posted Bernie Sanders’ campaign manager contacted Henry to inform him that it shows Clinton violating the debate rules.

Not surprisingly the Clinton campaign claimed that Clinton was unaware of the picture:

Many on twitter joined in on the conversation:

Donald Trump made a similar error when he spoke with his staff during a break during a GOP debate earlier this month.

Sanders came out the victor regardless, even being designed the winner by The New York Times, which has a history of dismissing him and whose editorial board has endorsed Hillary.
