Former DNC Interim Chair Donna Brazile recently confessed to forwarding primary debate questions to the Clinton campaign while she was a CNN contributor. By forwarding the questions, she gave the Clinton campaign an advantage over both the Sanders and O’Malley campaigns.
In her essay for TIME she states, “Then in October, a subsequent release of emails revealed that among the many things I did in my role as a Democratic operative and D.N.C. Vice Chair prior to assuming the interim D.N.C. Chair position was to share potential town hall topics with the Clinton campaign.”
“…sending those emails was a mistake I will forever regret,” she added.
After an email dump from Wikileaks, where it revealed Brazile’s infraction, she stopped being a contributor to CNN. This confession is a stark contrast to the innocence she claimed during the presidential election.
For example, in an official statement dated October 11, 2016, which is still currently on the Democrat’s official website with no correction, then DNC Interim Chair Donna Brazile stated:
“I often shared my thoughts with each and every campaign, and any suggestions that indicate otherwise are simply untrue. As it pertains to the CNN Debates, I never had access to questions and would never have shared them with the candidates if I did.”
Brazile continues to go on about how the Russian government “is responsible for the cyberattacks aimed at interfering with our election.” Her full statement can be read here.
She didn’t stop her claims of innocence at the official statement.
In an interview with Fox News on October 19th, Brazile brought her faith up and said she was being persecuted with the claims against her, “As a Christian woman I understand persecution, but I will not sit here and be persecuted because your information is totally false.”
