Well, duh. That's been obvious for some time now. The problem is that Sanders has been giving the Democratic leadership credibility by playing their game, rather then tearing down the whole rotten, corrupt, undemocratic, and infantilizing two-party system. It's no good making a deal with the devil and then acting surprised when he double-crosses you.
Former Democratic presidential candidate and Virginia senator Jim Webb backed Bernie Sanders in his fight with the Democratic National Committee on Friday, saying: “Good for Bernie. The DNC is nothing more than an arm for the Clinton campaign.”

On Friday, DNC chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz announced that the Sanders campaign had “inappropriately and systematically accessed Clinton campaign data” on its NGP VAN system.
Jeff Weaver, Sanders’s campaign manager, blamed the committee, saying “this sensitive and important data was compromised because the DNC and its vendor failed to protect it” and accused them of using the situation to harm the campaign in favor of Hillary Clinton’s.
“In other words, by their action, the leadership of the Democratic National Committee is now actively attempting to undermine our campaign. This is unacceptable,” Weaver said.
