It turns out Donna Brazile fed not one but two debate questions to Hillary Clinton. Now she’s out at CNN which has severed its relationship with her.

‘Uncomfortable’ CNN cuts ties with Brazile
CNN is “completely uncomfortable” with a former contributor’s relationship with the Hillary Clinton campaign and has cut ties with Donna Brazile, a network spokesman said Monday.
“On October 14th, CNN accepted Donna Brazile’s resignation as a CNN contributor,” the network said in a statement.
“CNN never gave Brazile access to any questions, prep material, attendee list, background information or meetings in advance of a town hall or debate,” the statement continued. “We are completely uncomfortable with what we have learned about her interactions with the Clinton campaign while she was a CNN contributor.”
A hacked email published Monday by WikiLeaks appeared to show Brazile, now the interim head of the Democratic National Committee, sending a debate question to Clinton’s presidential team.
In the email dated March 5, 2016 — the day before a CNN-hosted debate in Flint, Mich. — Brazile, then a CNN contributor, appeared to give a heads up about a question to John Podesta, the Clinton campaign chairman, and Jennifer Palmieri, its communications director.
What a shame!
