The Brazile Bombshell
The Brazile Bombshell exploded in Politico the other day.
“…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. I’d had my suspicions from the moment I walked in the door of the DNC a month or so earlier, based on the leaked emails… I at last found the document that described it all: the Joint Fund-Raising Agreement between the DNC, the Hillary Victory Fund, and Hillary for America…”
~ Donna Brazile
We already knew Clinton funneled money from state DNC chapters into her personal campaign. Politico reported that in May, 2016:
“…The venture, the Hillary Victory Fund, is a so-called joint fundraising committee comprised of Clinton’s presidential campaign, the Democratic National Committee and 32 state party committees. The setup allows Clinton to solicit checks of $350,000 or more from her super-rich supporters at extravagant fundraisers…”
~ Kenneth P. Vogel and Isaac Arnsdorf
Why did Brazile wait until now to share this latest revelation? The Politico piece is an excerpt from her book, Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House, which releases November 7, 2017.

- Why Warren did not run for President
- Why Warren did not endorse fellow-progressive, Bernie Sanders
- Why Warren did not endorse Hillary Clinton until after she gained the nomination
