On DNC Eve, Wasserman Schultz Announces Resignation

Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz announced she would resign at the end of the convention in a statement on Sunday. "As Party Chair, this week I will open and close the Convention and I will address our delegates about the stakes involved in this election not only for Democrats, but for all Americans," she said.

Donna Brazile: Wasserman Schultz 'Deserves' to Be Part of DNC

Democratic National Committee Vice Chair Donna Brazile said Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the committee's embattled chair, "deserves" to be part of the party's convention this week despite recent controversy over leaked emails. "Debbie has spent a lot of time and effort in pulling together this convention," Brazile told ABC News' GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS on "Good Morning America." "She deserves an opportunity to gavel us in, turn over to the permanent chair and she deserves an opportunity, I think, to also close us out."

Powerhouse Politics Podcast: Former Trump Staffer 'Insulted' He's Only Being Sued for $10 Million

A former top Trump political adviser being sued by Trump for $10 million over allegations that he broke a confidentiality agreement by leaking confidential campaign information to the press says he's "insulted" that Trump isn't suing him for more. "If you write $10 million, Mr. Trump, it's got to be $100 million, 150," ex-staffer Sam Nunberg told ABC's JONATHAN KARL in jest during an interview on "Powerhouse Politics" at the GOP convention, adding that it doesn't make him "look that good" if "I can only cause $10 million in damages." Trump is seeking the damages in an arbitration proceeding in New York, according to Nunberg's affidavit, for backing Ted Cruz and over claims that he was the source of a leaked story to the New York Post about former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, ABC's JORDYN PHELPS reports. http://abcn.ws/2a0fCxB
