Donna Brazile accuses Hillary Clinton of 'rigging' DNC in her favor

Donna Brazile accuses Hillary Clinton of 'rigging' DNC in her favor

"Donna Brazile going off the reservation right now is bad for Democrats", Republican strategist Rory McShane told Fox News on Sunday.

Former DNC chair Donna Brazile revealed this week that she has "proof" that Hillary Clinton paid the Democratic National Committee in exchange for control of their strategy and finances. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., unfairly during the primaries.

In essence, Brazile is saying that because Clinton helped raised massive amounts of money through state parties for the DNC, the candidate and her team were given operational control over the party committee before Clinton was the actual nominee.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) said Thursday that she believes the 2016 Democratic primary was rigged in former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's favor. Tim Kaine, and replace them with Biden and New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker as Biden's running mate on the revamped ticket.

But then she decided not to. "(But) no matter my doubts and my fears about the election and Hillary as a candidate, I could not make good on my threat to replace her". "I could not do this to them". Brazile writes that she believes no laws were violated, but that a funding agreement "looked unethical". She also wrote that Sanders' attacks inflicted "lasting damage" on her campaign and opened the door for Trump's "Crooked Hillary" label.

In an open letter published on Saturday, almost 100 former Clinton campaign staffers slammed Brazile's portrayal of the campaign, writing that they - as a group - "are pretty exhausted of people who were not part of our campaign telling the world what it was like to be on the inside of our campaign and how we felt about it". It is particularly troubling and puzzling that she would seemingly buy into false Russian-fueled propaganda, spread by both the Russians and our opponent, about our candidate's health.

The agreement established rules and guidance around the separate joint fundraising agreement Clinton's campaign signed with the DNC.

The Post obtained an advance copy of the 288-page "Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-Ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House".

The Brazile allegations confirm the long-held suspicions of Sanders supporters who were convinced during the campaign that the party establishment's thumb was always on the scale for Clinton. Bernie Sanders, signed his own agreement with the party.

Brazile lays the blame for the DNC's debt which led to the Clinton deal at the feet of disgraced former chair Florida Rep. "Further we understand you may enter into similar agreements with other candidates".

The forces aligned with Clinton and those aligned with Sanders have been sniping at one another ever since the 2016 primary ended that June. "I went on TV to say the campaign was back on track". "That is unacceptable. To that end, the new DNC under my leadership is committed to the task of making sure that our 2020 nominating process will be unquestionably fair and transparent".
