The Democratic National Committee is expected to call an emergency meeting to “consider” replacing Hillary Clinton as their presidential nominee, reports broadcast journalist David Shuster.
Democrat operatives told Schuster, who has anchored for MSNBC and Al Jazeera, the meeting is coming in response to her pneumonia debacle. The Clinton campaign is under fire after hiding her pneumonia diagnosis for three days, and revealing it only after startling footage of her collapsing outside a 9/11 memorial service in New York surfaced Sunday morning.
“Expect emergency DNC meeting to CONSIDER replacement,” Shuster tweeted Monday.

One of the operatives told Shuster Clinton is in “unchartered political territory,” after the pneumonia secret, combined with the fainting video and her recent comment deeming half of Donald Trump supporters as “deplorables.”

DNC bylaws stipulate it’s up to Clinton whether she withdraws, Shuster added, but if she would withdraw, a DNC delegate told him there is “every indication” the committee would push for Vice President Joe Biden as the new nominee. The Sanders camp is reportedly scrambling at the news.
