Donna Brazile admitted, in a Time article, that she passed debate questions to Hillary Clinton’s camp when she was a commentator for CNN. (She has since resigned from CNN.)
For months Brazile has continued to deflect questions about hacked DNC emails that show she had been feeding questions to Clinton operatives prior to separate presidential debates. In a long winded essay in Time, she admits that the Democratic strategy of blaming Russian hacking for shifting the presidential election has worked. She also said that the hacked DNC emails showed that the DNC was in shambles.
In typical Brazile fashion, she obfuscates the facts in her essay and continues to push the narrative that Trump operatives and Russian officials had ongoing contacts about the elections. (These statements have since been proven false, but that never stops Brazile from pushing the Democratic narrative.)
I knew things were amiss. The D.N.C. had been hacked, and thousands of staff emails and documents were plastered on various websites. Staff were harassed, morale suffered, and we lost weeks of planning. Donors were harassed, and fundraising fell off.
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. I had been working behind the scenes to add more town hall events and debates to the primary calendar, and I helped ensure those events included diverse moderators and addressed topics vital to minority communities. My job was to make all our Democratic candidates look good, and I worked closely with both campaigns to make that happen. But sending those emails was a mistake I will forever regret.
