On Monday, Symone Sanders, Bernie Sanders’ former national press secretary, took to social media to dispute claims that the Democratic primary election was stolen from the senator in the wake of newly leaked DNC emails, writing, “Now, we won some great battles, but the reality is the system didn’t cheat us.”

“Team Sanders we did AMAZING WORK,” wrote Sanders on Twitter. “But we lost.”

Sanders further stated that the leaked DNC emails raised valid concerns, but, having worked on the campaign, she was confident “7 folks on an email didn’t ‘steal’ the election.”

Instead of focussing on the primary, Sanders urged Bernie supporters to use their passion toward improving the party.

“Folks like myself have a duty to call it what it is & then do everything we can to make it what it should be,” wrote Sanders. “That’s the beauty of our party.”
