In an absolutely stunning excerpt from former interim Democrat National Committee chairwoman Donna Brazile’s upcoming book published this week by Politico, Brazile claimed that during her time at the DNC, she found “proof” that then-Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton had rigged the Democrat primary elections in her race against challenger Bernie Sanders.
Taken from Brazile’s soon-to-be released book, “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns that Put Donald Trump in the White House,” the excerpt published by Politico began by describing how Brazile had promised Sanders she’d “get to the bottom of whether Hillary Clinton’s team had rigged the nomination process.”
“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,” Brazile wrote. “But who knew if some of them might have been forged? I needed to have solid proof, and so did Bernie.”
To find the proof, she simply 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,” she explained.
That was debt that Clinton, a woman worth millions upon millions of dollars, sought to exploit to her advantage.
“As Hillary’s campaign gained momentum, she resolved the party’s debt and put it on a starvation diet,” Brazile wrote. “It had become dependent on her campaign for survival, for which she expected to wield control of its operations.”
Clinton pulled this off by crafting a fundraising agreement between the Democrat National Committee and her own fundraising organizations that “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.”
The agreement basically made Clinton the DNC’s queen.
Here’s the kicker: The agreement was signed in August of 2015, long before Clinton became the party’s nominee.
“The funding arrangement … was not illegal, but it sure looked unethical,” Brazile opined. “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.”
It also compromised Clinton’s integrity, assuming she ever possessed any. Based on her history, my guess would be no.
Regarding the moment she finally put the puzzle together and realized what had occurred, Brazile wrote, “By September 7 (of 2016), the day I called Bernie, I had found my proof and it broke my heart.”
By then it was too late, and both she and Sanders realized it. All they could do was support Clinton as the nominee and hope she would win. She didn’t, and even to this day she remains extremely unpopular.
I wonder why.
Actually, I know why: Hillary Rodham Clinton is a charlatan, a hack, a liar and a woman who should have never and would have never become the Democrat Party’s presidential nominee had she not cheated her way to the top.
