RNC chair says Donna Brazile revelation shows breakdown in DNC leadership

Hillary took over the Democratic Party months before she ran in astonishing coup that rigged entire system in her favor, reveals ex-party boss Donna Brazile – and Obama left it 'broke'

She began investigating whether Clinton "rigged the nomination process" as emails hacked from the DNC and published by WikiLeaks previous year had suggested, she said in an except of her new book coming out next week that appeared Thursday in Politico.

"By September 7, the day I called Bernie, I had found my proof and it broke my heart", she wrote, referring to Clinton's rival, Sen.

She said she told Sanders what she found out and that he took the news "stoically".

"Wait", I said. "That victory fund was supposed to be for whoever was the nominee, and the state party races".

When asked by CNN's Jake Tapper if she believed the Democratic primary was rigged in favor of Clinton, Warren replied with a simple "Yes".

The questionable nature of the Hillary Victory Fund was no secret during the Democratic primary. When she hears the DNC arranged a loan to continue operations, Brazile claims her response was, "No!" In exchange for the paying down of the DNC's debt, Clinton's campaign was given control of the "party's finances, strategy, and all the money raised", Brazile wrote.

If you haven't yet picked up Breath of the Wild , Nintendo's giving you even more incentive to do so this holiday season. It's possible this version will be limited in supply since it retails at the same price as the game does.

In the Politico report, Brazile does not talk much about the emails, but she blames Wasserman Schultz's poor fundraising skills, which she says left the Democratic party $2 million in debt. As details of the arrangement emerged in the spring of 2016, the joint fund-raising effort drew a great deal of scrutiny from the Sanders camp, the Vermont senator's supporters, and the state party committees that signed on. "Donna Brazile has shed light on the total dysfunction of the DNC and how clearly they put their thumb on the scale for Hillary Clinton".

She "couldn't write a news release without passing it by Brooklyn". Among those DNC officers is Brazile herself, who - at least in this passage - never offers any explanation as to why she and others didn't do their own due diligence on those issues.

Donna Brazile has torn open an old, persistent wound within the Democratic Party. One email chain discussed bringing Sanders's Jewish religion into the campaign, others spoke of him derisively, and in one a lawyer who worked for both Clinton and the DNC advised the committee on how to respond to questions about the Clinton joint fundraising committee.

Brazile took over as the interim chairwoman in July 2016 when Florida Rep. This agreement was signed in August 2015, long before a single person voted in the primaries, but secured that Clinton would be the Democratic Presidential Nominee.

This is also somewhat self-serving for Brazile, given the DNC continued to struggle during and after her tenure, especially financially. As for current DNC chair Tom Perez, Warren said his handling of the matter will serve as a test.

"But what we've got to do as Democrats now, is we've got to hold this party accountable", Warren said.
