Democratic operatives predicted an "emergency DNC meeting" to "CONSIDER replacement," following Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton's collapse at the 9/11 memorial event on Sunday, according to a broadcast journalist on Twitter.
David Shuster, a former anchor for Al Jazeera America and MSNBC, revealed the bombshell news Sunday afternoon, tweeting that operatives in Clinton's party expect a meeting to discuss whether or not to replace their nominee.
According to Shuster, a Democrat operative described Clinton's recent stumbles — literally and figuratively — as "uncharted political territory." The operative listed Clinton's infamous "basket of deplorables" comment, her hiding pneumonia for 3 days (if indeed she has pneumonia), and the video of her fainting after the 9/11 memorial ceremony. On Sunday, Clinton also called off her trip to California, scheduled for Monday and Tuesday.
Even if the DNC meets and decides to replace Clinton, party rules stipulate that she herself must voluntarily drop out.
According to the DNC’s bylaws and charter, the DNC would have the responsibility of picking a replacement. Exactly how this would be done is not spelled out, except that the members of the national committee would choose who fills the vacancy. The rules do not require that any kind of special consideration be given to Tim Kaine or Bernie Sanders. However, if someone besides Kaine were picked to replace Clinton, Kaine would remain in the VP spot.

>We've been asked to start polling Biden vs. Trump by some powerful people. Other polling agencies have been given the same order/request.
>DNC has been polling Biden vs. Trump for weeks, but they don't make their results public. Biden is consistently leading Trump nationally by 12-20 points in these unpublished polls compared to the Hillary vs. Trump dead heat.
>Our poll numbers showing Biden with a strong lead over Trump will be released within the next week.
>The Wasserman Schultz-free DNC will use its media influence to push the narrative that there is a public outcry for sick Hillary to step aside and let the DNC choose a different candidate (Biden)
>Additionally, there are people within the Democrat party who will be leaking extremely damaging (smoking gun) documents concerning the Clintons to Wikileaks.
>This will occur within the next two weeks.
>Clinton will be removed from the ticket.
>The first presidential debate at Hofstra University will be cancelled to allow Biden adequate time to prepare.
