Elizabeth Warren Says 2016 Democratic Nomination Rigged For Hillary Clinton

Donna Brazile Says she can Prove Clinton Rigged Primary Implicates Wasserman Schultz Donna Brazile Says she can Prove Clinton Rigged Primary Implicates Wasserman Schultz by John Lucas | Nov 2 2017

In an excerpt from her new book, Brazile said she found "proof" that Clinton rigged the nomination process and that it "broke her heart". Elizabeth Warren said she believes that the Democratic National Committee was "rigged" in favor of former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton during the 2016 primary.

"I told Bernie I had found Hillary's Joint Fundraising Agreement", she wrote.

Brazille said she eventually discovered that Clinton had entered into a secret agreement with the Hillary Victory Fund, Hillary for America and the cash-strapped DNC that in exchange for raising funds Clinton "would control the party's finances, strategy, and all the money raised".

'Obama left the party $24 million in debt-$15 million in bank debt and more than $8 million owed to vendors after the 2012 campaign and had been paying that off very slowly. The campaign had the DNC on life support, giving it money every month to meet its basic expenses, while the campaign was using the party as a fund-raising clearing house, ' according to Brazile.

While the agreement was technically not illegal, Brazile wrote that it struck her as "unethical".

"This was not a criminal act, but as I saw it, it compromised the party's integrity", Ms Brazile said about the arrangement.

Last year, Ms Brazile took over as DNC chair after Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz was forced out of the role over leaked emails suggesting she had favoured Ms Clinton during the primary.

Brazile has written a tell-all article about the dysfunction and mismanagement she uncovered at the organization she was brought in to run after hacked emails revealed efforts by party insiders to tilt the scales toward Clinton.

She "couldn't write a news release without passing it by Brooklyn". "If they walk away satisfied, that a procedure has been put in place that will assure us going forward that the choice of the Democrats across this country will be the nominee for president, then I think we'll be in good shape". Brazile describes how she informed Bernie of what she learned, and he "took this stoically".

The excerpt acknowledges that both candidates signed fundraising agreements with the party, but indicates that Clinton's was different (Sanders also signed in 2015).

This WSJ story says the US Justice Dept has identified at least six Russians who were behind the hack of the DNC a year ago.

Warren said the allegations are a "real problem" and called on new DNC chair Tom PerezThomas Edward PerezClinton's top five vice presidential picks Government social programs: "Triumph of hope over evidence Labor's "wasteful spending and mismanagement" at Workers" Comp MORE to unite the party. "Donna Brazile has shed light on the total dysfunction of the DNC and how clearly they put their thumb on the scale for Hillary Clinton".
