Newscast Media WASHINGTON—Donna Brazile, the chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) from July 2016 to February 2017, has alleged massive corruption within the supposedly impartial DNC during the 2016 election as the party was under the financial control of then-candidate Hillary Clinton.
In an excerpt of her upcoming book published as an article on Politico titled, "Inside Hillary Clinton's Secret Takeover of the DNC," Brazile offers yet more evidence that the pervasive sense that the DNC had rigged the Democratic primary contest against Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in favor of Clinton was, in fact, correct.

While the primaries were ongoing, Brazile alleged, the Clinton campaign was paying to keep the lights on at the DNC, which was $24 million in debt. The DNC, which is supposed to be neutral and not support any one candidate during the primary, was under Clinton's control the entire time as a result, she said.

Brazile is a known liar," Krieger began. "She participated
in this rigging of the primary, we know that, but at the end of the
day, Donna Brazile is a minion. She's a nobody. She's just like anyone
else, she wants to do well in her job...she [wants] a nice lifestyle."

We need to take a big picture [approach]… [Brazile has] not harmed America in massive ways, she's harmed American in minor ways… I care about people who have harmed America in massive ways. The Clintons are one of the best examples we have in this country. The proof is right here: this family, Bill and Hillary, made $150 million. Doing what? Being career politicians. How do you do that? The only way you can make $150 million by being politicians is if your system is a complete sewer — and it is it is a complete and total sewer, and they are one of the primary beneficiaries."
unlike the Hollywood scandal, Brazile's allegations have not been extensively
covered by mainstream media outlets. Quite the opposite. "That's
how you know when something's big," said Krieger. "When I
see MSNBC or CNN or the New York Times ignoring a story that anyone
with two brain cells to rub together can see the gigantic political
implications of...that is such a sign that we're winning. That is such
a sigh that the status quo has no confidence, that they're terrified,
that they're weak."

"The cat's out of the bag. In a world where we're talking to each other across the world and we've got billions of people that can communicate and say, 'what is wrong with these elitists? They're complete lunatics, and we don't need them.' They can't win… and so the only question for me is what comes next? I think the next five years will be the most chaotic five years that any of us alive will ever live."Add Comments>>
