The Hill reports:
Former Democratic National Committee (DNC) interim chairwoman Donna Brazile said she found “no evidence” that the 2016 Democratic presidential primary process was fixed, taking issue with the use of the word “rigged” by others. “I found no evidence, none, whatsoever,” Brazile told ABC’s “This Week.”
“The only thing I found, which I said, I found the cancer, but I’m not killing the patient, was this memorandum that prevented the DNC from running its own operation,” she said.
The revelations from Brazile caused both Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii), a former vice chairwoman of the DNC, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) to say the Democratic primary process was rigged in favor of Clinton. “I don’t think she meant the word rigged,” Brazile said Sunday of Warren.
More from Mediaite:
Stephanopoulos said it sounds like she had a “pretty dysfunctional relationship” with people in the Clinton campaign. She pushed back against the criticisms, saying she couldn’t “control the purse string of the Democratic party” and she was getting tired of people telling her how to spend money.
Brazile talked about all the time and energy she put into helping the Democratic party last year before saying this: “For those who are telling me to shut up––they told Hillary that a couple of months ago––you know what I tell them? Go to hell. I’m gonna tell my story.”
Right wing sites this weekend are, of course, glomming onto the section of Brazile’s book about murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich. From the Washington Post:
Brazile writes that she was haunted by the still-unsolved murder of DNC data staffer Seth Rich and feared for her own life, shutting the blinds to her office window so snipers could not see her and installing surveillance cameras at her home. She wonders whether Russians had placed a listening device in plants in the DNC executive suite.
