Former Democratic National Committee (DNC) interim DNC Chair Donna Brazile made headlines on Thursday when an excerpt of her new book was released in which she admitted that Hillary Clinton colluded with the DNC to rig the Democrat presidential primary against Bernie Sanders and in favor of Clinton.
“I had promised Bernie when I took the helm of the Democratic National Committee after the convention that I would get to the bottom of whether Hillary Clinton’s team had rigged the nomination process, as a cache of emails stolen by Russian hackers and posted online had suggested,” Brazile wrote in a piece for Politico.
“By Sept. 7, the day I called Bernie, I had found my proof and it broke my heart,” Brazile claimed.
Donna Brazile, the longtime Democrat operative who took over as head of the DNC after disgraced former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz was embarrassingly forced out during the Democrat convention in July of 2016, said that the “proof” she found was a joint fundraising agreement document between the DNC, the Hillary Victory Fund and Hillary for America. It had been signed in August 2015, four months after Clinton announced her candidacy and a year before she officially secured the nomination over Bernie Sanders.
“The agreement—signed by Amy Dacey, the former CEO of the DNC, and Robby Mook with a copy to Marc Elias—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,” Brazile wrote. “Her campaign had the right of refusal of who would be the party communications director, and it would make final decisions on all the other staff.”
In other words, the fix was in from the beginning.
Of course, it should be noted that this is the same Donna Brazile, while a CNN contributor, who leaked debate questions to Hillary Clinton in advance of a CNN debate between Clinton and Donald Trump.
Yet, suddenly, Brazile is trying to take the moral high ground by throwing Hillary Clinton under the bus, something that is about a year and a half too late. Suddenly she’s trying to paint herself as some kind of truth-teller and Daily Wire writer Matt Walsh is not going to have any part of it.
On Thursday, Matt Walsh asserted that “Donna Brazile knew the DNC was corrupt and rigged yet she fed debate questions to Hillary. She’s no hero. A fraud like the rest of them.”

Boom. Consider yourself kicked off your moral perch, Donna Brazile. Sadly, she’ll now make bookoo bucks on her new book, exposing corruption within her own party that she should have come clean about a long time ago.
But then again, if she had, she wouldn’t be making money in book sales.
