Remember when all the liberals said Donna Brazile would never lie about helping HRC cheat in her run against Bernie? Remember how upset and outraged Donna was at the idea, even though WikiLeaks had just released the hacked emails proving that she did it? Remember how the Left screamed that the Right was chasing yet another conspiracy theory?
Well that’s done.
One of the most astounding revelations from the Podesta email published by Wikileaks was that then interim DNC Chair and CNN commentator Donna Brazile leaked potential primary town hall questions to the Clinton campaign.
That was astounding in two regards — that it happened, and that the media didn’t make a bigger deal about it.
Just imagine what the media reaction would have been if during the general election it came out that questions during Republican primary debates had been leaked to the Trump campaign. It would have been non-stop, 24/7, foaming at the mouth coverage demanding Trump drop out of the race. …
…Now Brazile has confessed in a column in Time devoted to decrying Russian hacking. The admission of guilt was buried in one paragraph in that column.
Fox News reports on the confession:
Former interim Democratic National Committee Chair Donna Brazile admitted Friday that she forwarded Democratic primary debate questions to members of Hillary Clinton’s campaign – something she had previously denied.
“[I]n 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,” she wrote.
In October, emails from Clinton campaign Chair John Podesta’s account were released by WikiLeaks showing that Brazile – then a CNN contributor – had forwarded questions ahead of a March primary debate.
In one email, Brazile told Clinton Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri, “One of the questions directed to HRC tomorrow is from a woman with a rash,” the night before a March 6 CNN primary debate in Flint, Michigan.
“Her family has lead poison and she will ask what, if anything, will Hillary do as president to help the ppl of Flint,” Brazile wrote.
The following night, a question along those lines was posed to both Clinton and her primary rival Sen. Bernie Sanders, D-Vt.
In another email, dated Mar. 12, she passed on to Palmieri a question on the death penalty set to be asked in a Mar. 13 town hall and said: “From time to time I get the questions in advance.” After Palmieri responded, Brazile wrote back: “I’ll send a few more.” …
In the essay, Brazile said she will “forever regret” the decision to leak the questions to the Clinton campaign.
“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,” she wrote
Uhhh…don’t care. She lied, knew she was lying, threw out “As a Christian woman I know persecution” line on a Megyn Kelly interview and basically laughed at citizens who asked someone, ANYONE inside the Clinton circle to tell the truth for once.
On the other hand, Greg Gutfeld at Fox pointed out something. If Bernie had won, he may have won it all. So in a way Brazile, by cheating and helping HRC, saved all of us.
Hmmm…well if you put it that way…
