Donna Brazile is finally coming clean about her party rigging the 2016 presidential election. The disgraced former interim-chief of the Democratic National Committee admits the DNC rigged the nomination process.
Brazile, 57, threw Clinton and the DNC under the bus in her upcoming book “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns that Put Donald Trump in the White House”.
In a book excerpt featured by Politico.com, Brazile claims she thoroughly investigated the DNC for evidence of corruption after a series of hacked emails suggested Clinton hijacked the party.
She said she didn’t find evidence of corruption but she did find “an agreement” that reveals Clinton knowingly rigged the nomination process so she would win the nomination over Democratic candidate Berne Sanders.
“By September 7, the day I called Bernie, I had found my proof and it broke my heart,” she wrote.
In the excerpt, Brazile described an agreement between the Clinton Campaign, Clinton’s joint fundraising committee and the DNC that “specified 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 was made in part to financially revive the party, which had been in debt since the 2012 reelection of President Barack Obama, according to Brazile.
