Bernie Sanders waged a feisty yearlong battle against Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primaries, before endorsing her on July 12, 2016A cache of leaked emails from Democratic party leaders' accounts includes at least two messages suggesting an insider effort to hobble Bernie Sanders' upstart campaign, a revelation that threatens an uneasy truce within the party. The release Friday of more than 19,000 emails sent and received by seven top Democratic National Committee officials, by anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks, comes at a time when the party is anxious to project an image of unity. It also threatened to overshadow Hillary Clinton's first joint rally Saturday with her newly-named running mate, Tim Kaine, two days before the Democratic Party Convention kicks off in Philadelphia to officially crown the White House nominees.

Joining Clinton at a rally in the battleground state of Florida, the bilingual Kaine peppered Spanish-language phrases into a speech focused on introducing himself to voters unfamiliar with the low-key U.S. senator from Virginia. Kaine criticized Trump's recent suggestion he might not honor U.S. security commitments to NATO in Europe, and the real estate mogul's history of casino bankruptcies and founding the failed Trump University.
