Axelrod on how he would advise Wasserman Schultz "I would ask her to step aside"

Today on CNN’s State of the Union, David Axelrod, former senior advisor to President Obama,  joins anchor, Van Jones, CNN political commentator, Maria Cardona, CNN political commentator and Andre Bauer, CNN political commentator, Jake Tapper to discuss repercussions of the recent DNC e-mail leak, repercussions and more.

TEXT HIGHLIGHTS

Axelrod responds to the DNC e-mail leak: Well, it's not the story you want going into a - into the week.  And, you know, Debbie Wasserman Schultz has worked very hard for a long time in this job, but she's going to have to make a decision as to whether she wants to be a distraction or not. And I'm sure there are people who are talking to her about that. I think that this, by the end of the week, will not have been the story. But at a time when they're trying to bring the party together, bring the Bernie Sanders people on board, this is not a helpful - a helpful development. [TAPPER]  What would you tell them to do? If you were senior adviser to Hillary Clinton, which you are not, what - what needs to be done? Does she need to resign or does she need to apologize and fire those people that wrote those emails? What? [AXELROD]  I would… [TAPPER]  What's the solution? [AXELROD]  - I would ask her to step aside.  I would ask her to step aside, because she's a distraction on a week that is Hillary Clinton's week.  So, yes, I would - I would ask her to.

Jones the leaked DNC e-mails: Yes, well, I think a couple of things. First of all, this whole Trump moment, I've been fighting and - let's not adapt to absurdity.  Let's not start lowering our standards for what we expect from people who are in public life.  And that has to hold up.I had to resign.  You sometimes, when you're the distraction, you become the story, you fall on your sword.  It's what you're supposed to do.  That's how it works. And so I don't know who she's helping now by staying there.The other thing I just want to say is simply this, we've got a lot of work to do as a party to come together period.  Not everybody in the Sanders wing is where Bernie is yet.  We've got to - we - we need time for that.  This is in the way. Not every young activist of color is happy that we don't have a - a VP of color.  We've - we've got to work on that.  We've got - we - and so, there's real work to be done and this is a distraction.

TEXT HIGHLIGHTS

Weaver on DNC e-mail leak: [TAPPER]  I'm - I don't know about you, but these e-mails are pretty stunning.  [WEAVER]  They are stunning.  And it's very, very disappointing that you see, in black and white, how top officials at the DNC were plotting to put negative stories out about Senator Sanders, about how they planned to attack him on his religion.  It's really - I mean, that's just not what the Democratic Party is about.

Weaver responds to DNC e-mails plotting to leak stories about Sanders to the press: [TAPPER]  The chief financial officer, Tom Marshall, I think is his name, was the one talking about the religion, and whether Bernie was Jewish or believed in God, or was an atheist or whatever, and how that might help Hillary, presumably, win voters in Kentucky and West Virginia….Is there any evidence that any of these plots actually went to were reporters and were pitched as stories?  [WEAVER]  Well, it's hard to know, because, as you know, a lot of time reporters get off the record documents and they're loath to give up their sources.  So it's difficult to document when these things happen. But what is really very disturbing is that you had not only the CFO but you had the top staffer at the DNC, Amy Dacey, responding to that whole chain with the word, "Amen."  So it was clearly from the top - you know, all the top people were involved and it's very disappointing.  And I think, you know, it's great that Debbie Wasserman Schultz is not going to be speaking here, but, look, we saw in the Republican convention, we spent 48 hours with a drip, drip, drip as they refused to deal with the fact that Mrs. Trump had obviously lifted some lines from Michelle Obama's speech.  I think that we should show, as Democrats, that we're more mature than that.  There's obviously a problem here.  Someone should resign.  It should be - Debbie Wasserman Schultz should resign.  Maybe some staffers should resign.  We're just going to pull the Band-aid off this, get past it.  I mean, there's likely to be more e-mails released in the next couple days, and I'm sure there other time periods in the campaign - which you're aware of, like the data breach time period - where there was a lot of tension.  I'm sure those e-mails will be even worse.

TEXT HIGHLIGHTS

 

Donald Trump Jr. on how Mook responded to DNC email leak: [TAPPER] So, I don't know if you were hearing earlier, but Robby Mook, the campaign manager for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, I asked him about the DNC leak.And he suggested that experts are saying that Russians were behind both the leak - the hacking of the DNC e-mails and their release.  He seemed to be suggesting that this is part of a plot to help Donald Trump and hurt Hillary Clinton.  Your response?[TRUMP JR] Well, it just goes to show you their exact moral compass.  I mean, they will say anything to be able to win this.  I mean, this is time and time again, lie after lie.  You notice he won't say, well, I say this.  We hear experts. You know, here’s (INAUDIBLE) at home once said that this is what's happening with the Russians.  It's disgusting.  It's so phony.  I watched him bumble through the interview, I was able to hear it on audio a little bit.  I mean, I can't think of bigger lies, but that exactly goes to show you what the DNC and what the Clinton camp will do.  They will lie and do anything to win.You hear it with the DNC where they're leaking emails about Bernie Sanders and his Jewish heritage, to be able to try to destroy him in the south.  It's a rigged system. It's disgusting and the people who should be fed up because when I heard it I certainly was.[TAPPER]  President Obama –There’s nothing wrong with a fair fight, Jake.  I don't mind a fair fight, but these lies and the perpetuating of that kind of nonsense to try, you know, gain some political capital is just outrageous and he should be ashamed of himself.  If a Republican did that…[TAPPER] President Obama –[TRUMP JR]: … they would be calling for people to bring out the electric chair.

 

Donald Trump Jr. on the possibility of Roger Ailes joining the campaign: [TAPPER]  Your father raised the prospect of bringing on Roger Ailes the former chairman and CEO of FOX News and the idea being Mr. Trump said something along the lines of people are talking about maybe he would run my campaign.  Is that actually in play, roger Ailes coming on board and running the campaign? [TRUMP JR.] Not that I’m aware of.  I mean, I know they are friends and have a long-term relationship but I’m happy with the work that Paul Manafort is doing, I think our team is really coming into place and swing, it's been exciting to be a fly on the wall watching a lot of this stuff go down.  Because - you know, again, we're trying to give a voice to the people who have been forgotten and I think the campaign is doing a wonderful job of that.
