Donna Brazile, the former interim chair of the DNC, has finally admitted what the rest of us already knew. That she shared questions with the Hillary Clinton campaign before a debate last fall.
‘I Will Forever Regret’: Donna Brazile Admits She Gave Debate Questions to Clinton Campaign
Democratic analyst Donna Brazile seems to have confessed that she sent town hall debate topics to Hillary Clinton‘s presidential campaign while she worked for CNN…
On Friday, Brazile penned an essay for TIME where she talked about the importance of launching an investigation into the Trump administration’s apparent connections to Russia. As Brazile talked about how the Russians interfered with the election to President Trump‘s advantage, she reflected on how the e-mails about her were part of a strategy to destabilize the DNC.
From the piece in TIME:
In October, a subsequent release of emails revealed that among the many things I did in my role as a Democratic operative and D.N.C. Vice Chair prior to assuming the interim D.N.C. Chair position was to share potential town hall topics with the Clinton campaign. I had been working behind the scenes to add more town hall events and debates to the primary calendar, and I helped ensure those events included diverse moderators and addressed topics vital to minority communities. My job was to make all our Democratic candidates look good, and I worked closely with both campaigns to make that happen. But sending those emails was a mistake I will forever regret.
Thanks for finally coming clean on this, Donna.
We knew it was true but it’s nice to finally hear you admit it.
