Sanders campaign accuses Clinton of cheating during debate by doing this

Pictures may be worth a thousand words. But if words were exchanged between Hillary Clinton and her campaign aides during a commercial break in last night’s debate, as the picture below intimates, she is guilty of a DNC rule violation.

The picture appears in a tweet by Fox News’s Ed Henry:

Henry was told by a Sanders aide that the picture shows Hillary Clinton walking backstage surrounded by members of her staff midway through the campaign event in Florida.

This is the second time in as many days that the Clinton campaign has come under fire for playing fast and loose with the rules of engagement.  As reported here, Clinton’s director of communications, Jen Palmieri, was captured via a hot mic receiving in advance questions that she would be asked in an interview with NBC reporter Kristen Welker. In that instance, the journalist was complicit in the wrongdoing.
