Watch: ‘National Memo’ Editor Joe Conason Weighs In On Saturday Night’s Dem Debate

National Memo editor-in-chief Joe Conason sat down with Joy Reid, sitting in for Melissa Harris-Perry, Sunday morning to discuss the final Democratic debate of the year, which aired on ABC Saturday night.

Reid begins the segment by grilling Democratic National Committee Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) about the DNC data breach that allowed the Sanders camp to get its hands on voter files belonging to the Clinton campaign, and also about the perceptions that the DNC was running the primary race in such a way as to give Clinton an advantage, notions which Schultz said were “ludicrous.”

The much-hyped Sanders-Clinton clash ended before it began Saturday night, with Sanders apologizing to the current Democratic frontrunner and pledging to assist in an independent investigation into the cause of the breach. “The two grown-ups decided to put this to rest last night,” Conason said.

The panel with Conason begins at roughly the 11:00 mark below. Or click here for a higher-quality video stream.
