    Rep. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., on Tuesday raised the prospect of sanctions against Russia if it is confirmed that the Kremlin was involved in the leak of Democratic Party emails released last weekend. The emails showed DNC staffers working to help Clinton’s campaign during her primary fight against Bernie Sanders, despite the DNC’s publicly neutral stance.

    Bernie delegates: No boos Tuesday night at the Democratic convention

    Hoping to avoid another round of stories about Bernie Sanders backers booing speakers at the Democratic National Convention on a night whose program will be heavily focused on criminal justice reform issues, the Sanders delegates from New York made a pact among themselves on Tuesday morning: no booing tonight. “We’re not going to boo, that’s all … that we agreed on,” said Chuck Hess, 31, an IT specialist from Buffalo sporting a sky blue Bernie T-shirt. In addition to an address by former President Bill Clinton, the Mothers of the Movement — as the mothers of African-Americans killed during encounters with police are called — will speak from the podium in Philadelphia on Tuesday.

    Unconventional #44: DNC Day 2 — The ‘You’re Being Ridiculous’ Edition

    Coming to you live every morning from Philadelphia, Unconventional is the one thing you need to read to understand what’s really happening at the Democratic National Convention. PHILADELPHIA — In back-to-back speeches Monday, America’s two most popular progressives — Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders — tried to unite the Democratic Party around the presumptive nominee, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, after a rancorous, decorum-shattering session that saw delegates loyal to Sanders booing or chanting “Bernie! Bernie!” nearly every time Clinton’s name was mentioned.

    Bernie Sanders: ‘Hillary Clinton will make an outstanding president’

    The man himself tried to soothe the “Bern” at the Democratic National Convention on Monday night. Sen. Bernie Sanders delivered a rousing speech in which he implored the rebellious band of political revolutionaries who backed his presidential campaign to line up behind his former primary rival, Hillary Clinton. After several minutes of roaring applause, Sanders addressed the elephant in the room.

    Top Sanders supporter Ben Jealous: ‘The Russians didn’t write the emails’ in DNC leak

    Ben Jealous, the former CEO and president of the NAACP, said Monday that the Democratic National Committee’s email leaks showed why its chair, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, should resign. “We can never again be allowed to have a Democratic Party whose top officials do such damage to their base,” Jealous told Yahoo Global News Anchor Katie Couric. Based on messages included in a massive leaked email trove that some have linked to the Russian government, DNC officials were revealed last weekend to have been privately undermining Sen. Bernie Sanders’ campaign while publicly maintaining their impartiality.

    It wouldn’t be a Democratic convention without a Kennedy

    There’s nothing that quickens the pulses of the Democratic faithful like a convention address by a Kennedy. The lore goes back to John F. Kennedy’s presidential acceptance speech in Los Angeles in 1960. In a preview of the sacrifices he would ask of the American people in his first inaugural address, Kennedy said, “The New Frontier of which I speak is not a set of promises — it is a set of challenges.

    Michelle Obama: ‘Don’t let anyone ever tell you that this country isn’t great’

    In an emotional, soaring and pointedly political speech on the first night of the Democratic National Convention tonight, first lady Michelle Obama braided together her case for her husband’s legacy, her support for the woman who is trying to succeed him and her repudiation of the man who is trying to defeat her. The role of a president, she said, is to create the future for the next generation, and it was that goal that guided Barack Obama’s presidency. Michelle Obama has not always felt this warmly about Hillary Clinton, who ran hard against Barack Obama in 2008.

    Elizabeth Warren: The system is rigged, and Donald Trump would make it worse

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren told Democratic delegates Monday night that the system is “rigged” against people who aren’t wealthy and that Donald Trump would make that worse if he is elected president. “People get it: The system is rigged,” Warren said at the Democratic National Convention. Warren, who frequently battles with Trump on the airwaves and on Twitter, accused the Manhattan developer of dividing up Americans in order to win votes.

    Muslim lawmaker tells Democrats to vote against Trump’s ‘anti-Muslim’ message

    The first Muslim elected to Congress warned Democrats on Monday that staying home in November would amount to a “surrender” to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and his discriminatory agenda. Rep. Keith Ellison’s remarks came as he introduced Sen. Bernie Sanders here at the Democratic National Convention, a gathering marred by intra-party divisions between the unconventional Vermonter’s supporters and backers of the presumptive nominee, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Ellison’s message may have been aimed at hardcore Sanders supporters, like some delegates to the convention who have booed almost every mention of Clinton’s name.

    Cory Booker stresses love, unity and stopping ‘evil’

    Cory Booker preached love and unity at the Democratic convention here Monday night, a message aimed not only at a divided country but also at a divided party. The New Jersey senator’s remarks, in a marquee slot just before a speech by first lady Michelle Obama, were a critique of the Republican claim to ownership over patriotic sentiment. “You can’t love your country without loving your countrymen and countrywomen,” Booker said.

    Al Franken touts his ‘Trump U’ degree in ‘megalomania studies’

    In a rare instance of a politician reverse-résumé-polishing, Minnesota Sen. Al Franken in jest claimed a degree from Trump University — which never did grant degrees — at the Democratic National Convention Monday on night. Speaking on the first night of the convention, shortly before helping comedian Sarah Silverman introduce singer Paul Simon, Franken said he had a doctorate in “megalomania studies” from the Republican nominee’s namesake unaccredited business school. Trump University seems likely to play the same role at the DNC as “Benghazi” did last week for the Republicans: as shorthand for the lack of trustworthiness each party is trying to pin on the opposing candidate.

Ortiz, a U.S. citizen born in Las Vegas, was accompanied by her mother, Francisca Ortiz. Ortiz and Clinton met in February at a roundtable in Vegas, when the little girl told Clinton she was worried her parents would be deported.
