Former DNC Chairwoman Donna Brazile released a book recently and she completely exposed a shady side to Hillary Clinton’s campaign never heard of before. Brazile said it “broke her heart” when evidence surfaced showing Hillary Clinton’s campaign fixed the primary against Bernie.
Politico was given excerpts to Donna Brazile’s new book “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns that Put Donald Trump in the White House.” Brazile described how she was picked to help investigate the DNC after hacked emails appeared to show the Clinton campaign fixed the nomination against Bernie Sanders.
“By September 7, the day I called Bernie, I had found my proof and it broke my heart…. The campaign had the DNC on life support, giving it money every month to meet its basic expenses, while the campaign was using the party as a fund-raising clearing house.”
According to The Hill, Brazile went into detail about a shady agreement between the Clinton campaign, the DNC and Clinton’s joint fundraising committee. The 3 parties agreed that Clinton’s campaign would “control the party’s finances, strategy, and all the money raised.” The deal was made to help the party financially after Obama left the party nearly $24 million in debt following his 2012 run for President.
According to the book, the deal was signed in August 2015, conveniently right before Clinton was able to secure the nomination.
“The funding arrangement … was not illegal, but it sure looked unethical. If the fight had been fair, one campaign would not have control of the party before the voters had decided which one they wanted to lead. This was not a criminal act, but as I saw it, it compromised the party’s integrity.”
The latest revelations from Brazile’s new book will likely upset people on Bernie Sanders’ campaign team and other critics who feel like Bernie was robbed.
