Corrupt News Network (CNN) severed ties with political analyst Donna Brazile on Monday. CNN fired Brazile after newly released emails proved she forwarded questions to Hillary Clinton before CNN’s debate in March.
The new emails were released by anti-secrecy organization WikiLeaks on Monday.
After the news broke, Brazile tweeted a message thanking CNN and wishing “Godspeed” to her former colleagues.
In previous statements, Brazile, 56, vigorously denied passing questions to Clinton, who is currently under federal investigation again.
Brazile, who is still DNC chairman (for now), laughably claimed her emails were “altered”.
Politico.com — CNN says it is “completely uncomfortable” with hacked emails showing former contributor and interim DNC chair Donna Brazile sharing questions with the Clinton campaign before a debate and a town hall during the Democratic primary, and has accepted her resignation.
Hacked emails posted by WikiLeaks show Brazile, whose CNN contract was suspended when she became interim DNC chair over the summer, sharing with the Clinton campaign a question that would be posed to Hillary Clinton before the March CNN Democratic debate in Flint, and sharing with the campaign a possible question prior to a CNN town hall also in March.
In a statement, CNN spokeswoman Lauren Pratapas said that on Oct. 14, the network accepted Brazile’s resignation.
If the network accepted Brazile’s resignation on Oct. 14, why are they just now announcing it today?
Will CNN be fined by the FCC for attempting to influence the presidential election?
