Looking to protect her own ass before the Uranium One scandal engulfs her, dumb Donna Brazile is throwing Hillary Clinton and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz in hopes she can cover her own ass and that the treason conducted by Clinton and Wasserman-Schultz wouldn’t engulf her. After rigged the DNC debate for Hillary Clinton and leaking the CNN debate questions, Brazile suddenly is pissed at Clinton. Ain’t that a kick in the head.
Even though Brazile is the one who rigged the DNC primary debates and leaked debate questions to Hillary Clinton, Brazile is claiming that Hillary Clinton was in fact the one who rigged the DNC debates.
|Donna Brazile throws Hillary Clinton-Wasserman-Schultz under the bus|
I had promised Bernie when I took the helm of the Democratic National Committee after the convention that I would get to the bottom of whether Hillary Clinton’s team had rigged the nomination process, as a cache of emails stolen by Russian hackers and posted online had suggested. I’d had my suspicions from the moment I walked in the door of the DNC a month or so earlier, based on the leaked emails. But who knew if some of them might have been forged? I needed to have solid proof, and so did Bernie.
Brazile even blamed Obama for leaving the DNC with so much debt. That must be racist right? Oh, a black Democrat can never be racist or something like Donna Brazile.
So I followed the money. My predecessor, Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, had not been the most active chair in fundraising at a time when President Barack Obama’s neglect had left the party in significant debt. As Hillary’s campaign gained momentum, she resolved the party’s debt and put it on a starvation diet. It had become dependent on her campaign for survival, for which she expected to wield control of its operations.
Debbie was not a good manager. She hadn’t been very interested in controlling the party—she let Clinton’s headquarters in Brooklyn do as it desired so she didn’t have to inform the party officers how bad the situation was. How much control Brooklyn had and for how long was still something I had been trying to uncover for the last few weeks.
By September 7, the day I called Bernie, I had found my proof and it broke my heart.
The Brazile mentions the Clintons and money laundering…
Yet the states kept less than half of 1 percent of the $82 million they had amassed from the extravagant fund-raisers Hillary’s campaign was holding, just as Gary had described to me when he and I talked in August. When the Politico story described this arrangement as “essentially … money laundering” for the Clinton campaign, Hillary’s people were outraged at being accused of doing something shady. Bernie’s people were angry for their own reasons, saying this was part of a calculated strategy to throw the nomination to Hillary.
I wanted to believe Hillary, who made campaign finance reform part of her platform, but I had made this pledge to Bernie and did not want to disappoint him. I kept asking the party lawyers and the DNC staff to show me the agreements that the party had made for sharing the money they raised, but there was a lot of shuffling of feet and looking the other way.
When I got back from a vacation in Martha’s Vineyard, I at last found the document that described it all: the Joint Fund-Raising Agreement between the DNC, the Hillary Victory Fund, and Hillary for America.
The agreement—signed by Amy Dacey, the former CEO of the DNC, and Robby Mook with a copy to Marc Elias—specified that in exchange for raising money and investing in the DNC, Hillary would control the party’s finances, strategy, and all the money raised. Her campaign had the right of refusal of who would be the party communications director, and it would make final decisions on all the other staff. The DNC also was required to consult with the campaign about all other staffing, budgeting, data, analytics, and mailings.
Watching the Democrats eat themselves is beautiful (to quote Jake Tapper’s take on Allahu Ackbar.) All Brazile is too is telling the story many Americans already knew, but were never told by the Hillary Clinton corrupt media.
Brazile is for too old and washed up for any future elected political office. What would be her motivation to spill the beans about Clinton and Wasserman-Schultz like this now>? Only to protect her own ass as the Uranium One scandal engulfs the Democrats.
