Donna Brazile: Hillary Clinton 'Rigged The Nomination Process'

Former DNC Chair Donna Brazile drops bombshell about Hillary Clinton

Former interim DNC chair Donna Brazile's op-ed in Politico is excerpted from her forthcoming book.

From the start, Brazile writes, the scale was tipped in favor of Clinton - and against Sen.

The ousted CNN contributor makes the surprising revelation in her book, titled "Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-Ins and Breakdowns that Put Donald Trump in the White House", which is set to hit shelves November 7.

She wrote: "By September 7, 2016, the day I called Bernie, I had found my proof and it broke my heart".

This news made it clear why Brazile had to have press releases approved by the Clinton Campaign in Brooklyn before they were sent out. "As Senator Sanders faces almost insurmountable odds, he is resorting to baseless accusations of illegal actions and poisoning the well for Democratic candidates up and down the ticket,"Robby Mook, Clinton's campaign manager, said".

One wonders if Brazile would have told us any of this if Clinton had actually won. "They wanted her to be the nominee", he said.

Over a year after the 2016 Democratic National Convention, Donna Brazile is calling Hillary Clinton's nomination into question.

While Brazile jabs Clinton in her new book, she too has faced considerable criticism since past year for her actions during the primary.

Although he eventually campaigned for Clinton after she clinched the nomination, Sanders spent the next several months claiming that the primary system was "rigged" against him, only to be roundly dismissed by party leadership.

Brazile was sacked from CNN and apologized for sharing the questions.

Nowhere in the piece does Brazile mention that Politico reported the fundraising agreement between the DNC and Hillary when it happened, nor does she mention that the Sanders campaign also signed a joint fundraising agreement with the DNC.

Not only that, Clinton's campaign would have right of refusal over "who would be the party communications director, and ... would make final decisions on all the other staff".

Brazile describes an agreement between the Hillary Victory Fund, a joint fundraising organization between the campaign and the DNC, Hillary for America, Clinton's campaign, and the DNC. The agreement was signed in August 2015, nearly a full year before Clinton became the party's official nominee. She said she told Sanders what she found out and that he took the supposed information "stoically".

Brazile further writes, "The funding arrangement with HFA and the victory fund agreement was not illegal, but it sure looked unethical". "When Tom Perez was first elected chair of the DNC, the very first conversation I had with him is to say, you have got to put together a Democratic Party in which everybody can have confidence that the party is working for Democrats, rather than Democrats are working for the party".

New York, New York, USA; June 7th, 2016; Democratic US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton speaks at her primary night victory rally at the Brooklyn Navy Yard in New York. When she hears the DNC arranged a loan to continue operations, Brazile claims her response was, "No!"
