Hillary Clinton will not be pleased with Donna Brazile, the former interim head of the DNC.
Politico published part of Brazile’s new book where she claims Hillary Clinton was controlling the DNC during the Democrat primary.
The Daily Beast reports:
In an excerpt from her new book published by Politico, Brazile said she promised Clinton’s opponent, Bernie Sanders, that she would get to the bottom of whether Clinton had “rigged the nomination process.” She wrote, “By September 7, the day I called Bernie, I had found my proof and it broke my heart.”
Brazile found Hillary Clinton’s campaign was controlling the DNC.
The agreement—signed by Amy Dacey, the former CEO of the DNC, and Robby Mook with a copy to Marc Elias—specified that in exchange for raising money and investing in the DNC, Hillary would control the party’s finances, strategy, and all the money raised. Her campaign had the right of refusal of who would be the party communications director, and it would make final decisions on all the other staff. The DNC also was required to consult with the campaign about all other staffing, budgeting, data, analytics, and mailings.
After the Democrat primary, Brazile was fully on board with electing Clinton as president.
Brazile lost her job as a CNN political commentator because she gave Clinton’s campaign questions before the cable network’s airing of a debate during the Democrat primary.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Veteran Democratic operative Donna Brazile finally admitted that she used her former position as a CNN commentator to relay questions ahead of debates to Hillary Clinton during the Democratic primary.
For months, Brazile has avoided confirming that hacked emails from the campaign showed her forwarding the questions, which were asked at separate debates. But in a new essay for Time magazine looking back on the hackings, she said it was true.
