Brazile Suddenly Denies DNC Rigged Primary for Hillary

(Chelsea Shilling, WND) Was the 2016 Democratic Party primary process between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders a “fair” fight?

“I believe it was,” said former Democratic National Committee interim chair Donna Brazile, who was suddenly singing a very different tune Tuesday in an interview with CBS.

In her new book released Tuesday, “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns that Put Donald Trump in the White House,” Brazile had said exactly the opposite – indicating she doesn’t believe “the fight had been fair.”

Brazile explains that, when she took the helm of the DNC, she promised Sanders she “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.”

Clinton vs. Sanders not a ‘fair’ fight

The following is an excerpt from Brazile’s new book describing the moment she discovered a eye-opening deal between Clinton and the DNC that, she says, “looked unethical” and “compromised the party’s integrity”:

I had tried to search out any other evidence of internal corruption that would show that the DNC was rigging the system to throw the primary to Hillary, but I could not find any in party affairs or among the staff. I had gone department by department, investigating individual conduct for evidence of skewed decisions, and I was happy to see that I had found none. Then I found this agreement.

The funding arrangement with HFA and the victory fund agreement was not illegal, but it sure looked unethical. If the fight had been fair, one campaign would not have control of the party before the voters had decided which one they wanted to lead. This was not a criminal act, but as I saw it, it compromised the party’s integrity.

I had to keep my promise to Bernie. I was in agony as I dialed him. Keeping this secret was against everything that I stood for, all that I valued as a woman and as a public servant.

“Hello, senator. I’ve completed my review of the DNC and I did find the cancer,” I said. “But I will not kill the patient.”

Essentially, Clinton had cut a deal to bankroll the DNC during the 2016 election in exchange for control over its operations – before the party’s nominee had been officially selected. And Brazile indicated she didn’t believe “the fight had been fair” because the agreement compromised the DNC’s integrity.

The revelations prompted President Trump to tweet: “Donna Brazile just stated the DNC RIGGED the system to illegally steal the Primary from Bernie Sanders. Bought and paid for by Crooked H …”

Fair fight? ‘I believe it was’

However, on Tuesday morning, CBS’ Norah O’Donnell asked Brazile if the primary between Clinton and Sanders had been a fair fight.

“I believe it was,” Brazil replied.

She said: “I found no instances that the party rigged the process, and I wanted to make sure Bernie and his supporters understood that.”

In a similar statement during a Nov. 5 interview with ABC’s “This Week,” Brazile said she found “no evidence” that the Democratic primary was rigged.

“I found no evidence, none whatsoever,” she said. “The only thing I found, which I said, ‘I found the cancer, and I’m not killing the patient,’ was this memorandum that prevented the DNC from running its own operations.”

Clinton loyalists attack Brazile

So why does Brazile appear to be changing her tune about the process being “fair”?

Could it be the massive push-back against her by Clinton loyalists and some in the media?

On Monday evening, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson claimed “highly informed sources” said “top management at CNN directed its employees to undermine Brazile’s credibility.”

And in a Nov. 4 “Open Letter from Hillary for America 2016 Team,” more than 200 Clinton staffers – including campaign chairman John Podesta, campaign manager Robby Mook and communications director Jennifer Palmieri – blasted the accusations in Brazile’s book.

“Donna came in to take over the DNC at a very difficult time,” the letter said. “We were grateful to her for doing so. She is a longtime friend and colleague of many of us and has been an important leader in our party. But we do not recognize the campaign she portrays in the book.”

On Tuesday, Brazile was attacked by Joy Behar of “The View” for “giving red meat to Trump’s side” by releasing the book on an election day.

“You threw a lot of people under the bus. The DNC is made at you. Robby Mook [former campaign manager for Hillary Clinton] is mad, maybe even Hillary might be mad,” Behar told Brazile.

“I’m not sure about Hillary. I saw Mook, he’s upset,” Behar said. “But here’s the question I have for you. Why the timing of this book? Today is Election Day. Why are you giving red meat to Trump’s side? Why not have a week, next week?”

In that appearance, Brazile falsely claimed she never used the word “rigged” in her book. But nobody on “The View” challenged her untrue assertion.

Haunted by mysterious murder of Seth Rich

As WND reported Monday, Brazile also said she feared for her life after the mysterious murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich. She even believed snipers would try to shoot and kill her.

In her book, she says she closed her office window blinds so snipers couldn’t spot her. Brazile installed surveillance cameras at her home. And she worried that her office was bugged with a listening device.

As WND has reported, Rich, 27, was the DNC’s voter expansion data director. He had accepted a position with Clinton’s campaign just before his death. Some believe he played a role in the release of DNC emails by WikiLeaks during the 2016 campaign. WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange, in an August 2016 interview, appeared to suggest that Rich was one of his sources.

In the summer of 2016 – in the heat of a highly contentious presidential campaign – Rich was fatally shot in the back in Washington, D.C., near his apartment in an affluent neighborhood. Rich had been working for the DNC at a time when emails from the organization were provided to WikiLeaks for publication. The latest DNC email released by WikiLeaks was dated May 18, 2016 – just weeks before Rich was murdered. The emails exposed the party’s bias against Sanders.

The Metropolitan Police Department and Washington Mayor Muriel Bowers insist Rich was randomly killed during a “botched robbery.” But others are doubtful because he was found with his wallet, credit cards and other valuables.

“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,” the Washington Post reported. “She wonders whether Russians had placed a listening device in plants in the DNC executive suite.”

Cash to find Rich’s killer? Hillary ends call

Brazile also reveals that she has her own theories about Rich’s unsolved murder, including that he might have been killed for being white or that he was terminated by Russians.

She wrote:

I felt some responsibility for Seth Rich’s death. I didn’t bring him into the DNC, but I helped keep him there working on voting rights. With all I knew now about the Russians’ hacking, I could not help but wonder if they had played some part in his unsolved murder. Besides that, racial tensions were high that summer and I worried that he was murdered for being white on the wrong side of town. [My friend] Elaine expressed her doubts about that, and I heard her. The FBI said that they did not see any Russian fingerprints there.

In fact, Brazile says she was so haunted by Rich’s death that she asked Clinton to spare some campaign funds to help find the staffer’s killer.

But that’s when Clinton allegedly ended the call, saying she “really had to go.”

The book excerpt:

I knew the campaign had over $3 million set aside in a legal fund. Could she help me get this lawsuit started? And don’t forget the murder of Seth Rich, I told her. Did she want to contribute to Seth’s reward fund? We still hadn’t found the person responsible for the tragic murder of this bright young DNC staffer.

You’re right, she said. We’re going to get to that. But she really had to go. She had made the call and checked it off her list, and I accepted after we said our good-byes that I might never hear from her again.

As WND has reported, WikiLeaks is offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of Rich’s killer. Jack Burkman, head of the Profiling Project, is offering $105,000. One America News Network offered up $100,000, the Metropolitan Police Department $25,000 and businessman and investor Martin Shkreli $100,000.

The DNC, however, has offered no reward to help find the killer of its staffer. Instead, the DNC honored its murdered employee by dedicating a bike rack outside its headquarters in Rich’s memory.

    The Clinton Cartel must have gotten to her and threatened her life.

      Most people that get in the Clinton Crime family’s way seem to disappear or are killed in some mugging where nothing is taken. Or suicide with a bullet in the back of the head form a weapon that cannot be found.

      • Ricarrdo estavans

        Google the Clinton then the obama body count.

        • Sylvia Avila

          Yes, so true, How strange that 52 people just died very mysteriously when Clinton was President? All within a year? what are those chances? Yes, Clinton’s very dangerous people! indeed.

          • EDWARD MIKAN

            NEEDS TO BE TAKEN CARE OF. U S ARMY VETERAN

      • Sylvia Avila

        So true, now that we know Clinton’s took over DNC that means they had a hand in the murder of Seth! and others to be sure!

        • kep

          I think the Clinton Crime Family have many , many bodies. I would suspect that Emperor Obama has near as many.

          • Sylvia Avila

            Right so true! Both big time criminals! Time to jail them all!

      • sweetqueen777

        Amazing how that happens, Eh???

    • Jeannie

      Of course they did

    • crosxb

      Actually, what’s more powerful is to threaten the lives of her family, her grandchildren for example, because they are completely innocent. And that WOULD be hard to turn down….

    • 1ForWisdom

      That’s the way they operate just like the mafia…con and kill for money. Hey, it’s a way of life for them.

    • Sylvia Avila

      Yes, maybe, but if she disappears that would make the Clinton’s suspects! After all they are the ones the book is about!

    • sweetqueen777

      She is definitely backpeddling on her previous assertions. She can SAY that the Primary Process was not Rigged, all she wants, but what else can you call it, when the MONEY is controlled by one of the candidates? It is what it is, and anyone who thinks that was a fair or ethical practice is Blind, Deaf, and Dumb.

  • olarepre1977

    typical response from someone who has dirt on the clintons and than gets the visit.

    • Askjrsk

      Like a visit on the airplane while on the tarmac, only to talk about the grandchildren visit?

      • SamVBar

        I’m sure the visit was only for discussion of grandchildren. Yeah and I have this beautiful stretch of sandy beach along the Arizona border for sale.

        • Gregg Parker

          It was about grandchildren and if you want to see them get older and retain all their limbs or not…

        • Askjrsk

          Oh I always wanted Arizona costal property. I hear surfing is good there. Big ships sail into the harbor and John McCain is hrabormaster? Is that true?

    • SamVBar

      It is terrible that they have been allowed to get this strangle hold on the people surrounding them. They are like Stalin and the Mafia. The power pushers demand total allegiance to them and their pushers and movers. To defy them is to sign a death warrant for yourself.

    JUST LEAKED MEMO FROM THE NEW HACKED EMAILS BY THE CLINTON CRIME SYNDICATE®:

    TOP SECRET

    TO:
    Undercover Slave class 3 Donna Brazzie

    From: WitchQueen class 9 Hillary

    The plan worked! By saying things in your “Ghost written book #5-666” that eludes to collusion between the DNC, and our election campaign was executed perfectly! The despicable right will harp on it for the next month or so… so when/if any legal issues become of said collusion(s), we can just bring out the tried and true counter accusations of a Vast Rightwing Conspiracy.

    Now, by denying that the quotes were taken out of context. You have assured you place in “THE FAMILY”! Congratulations!

    It just amazes me these peons have NEVER watched the movie “Wag the Dog”. I have put out every clues to out intentions to control these miserable lowlifes. As dictated by the Supreme Leader. But they are all Morons.

    That you Donna! I am proud to announce your promotion to : SLAVE CLASS 4

    End of email…

    • Ricarrdo estavans

      Very creative. Bravo.

    • minefinder624

      Don’t forget to throw some shoes into the trees !

  • Ricarrdo estavans

    I heard when she arrived home she found her cat’s throat slit. Do not get in a car or on a plane if she is a passenger.

    • SamVBar

      I will not do either.

  • Bill Mullins

    Is it just me or does Brazile suddenly seem to be laying serious rubber in reverse? I don’t know if Mr Estavans is correct about he cat but it sure looks like some one advised Ms Brazile about something called “arkancide”. Whether such advice included one of her pets I cannot say but she certainly does seem to be doing a whole lot of backpedaling these days. Perhaps some simply whispered “Vince Foster” in her ear.

    • SamVBar

      Her vehicle was last seen driving backward if that means anything.

  • Louie Rey

    She was most likely sent a note that read, “Does the name Vince Foster mean anything to you?” I have a funny feeling that Ms. Brazile will no longer pursue a career in politics. Just saying.

  • Jeannie

    She knows she is in the clinton crosshairs. such a shame that these corrupt, crooked, despicable people have so much power. THEY NEED TO BE STOPPED!!!!!

    • EDWARD MIKAN

      YES!!! PERMANENTLY!!!! U S ARMY VETERAN

  • MS_Steve

    Awwwwww… and she she was such a nice / honest / sincere person.
    It’s called karma, beeotch. WHO the fark did you think you were farking with, stupid??

    • Askjrsk

      Is she sure she’s a Christian black woman? She’s got more stories than the Empire State Building .

      • SamVBar

        She sings in the Devils Choir on Black Sabbath. She uses the Christian title to deceive her loyal followers. There are those among the living that do nothing but follow cult members. They can live vicariously through them.

        • Askjrsk

          She’s a witch in other words, and just not on Haloween.

  • Mike W

    One way or the other Brazile is nothing but a liar. Probably had a tarmac visit from Bill to talk about golf and the grandchildren.

  • Jack Scarpon

    Sure she sings a different tune now!! Killary sure sent her “” cleaner” to her with a “ life changing offer” !!

  • Askjrsk

    I’m surprised she hasn’t pulled her book and invented a new narrative. Donna Brazile said on Tucker Carlson show that Hillary is her good friend. They certainly have a common thread. Not trustworthy and make up lies as needed, are the common traits of Donna Brazile and Hilary Clinton.

  • tCotUS

    What a LOSER,,,,Like the rest of the DNC

  • David Hall

    this from the woman who gave Clinton the debate questions the told a sunday morning news program that she id not the same week shewas let go as a panalest of the show after finding ut that she did infact give clinton the questions so to use her own words she[clinton] would not be blindside by them

  • Ron S.

    Brazile claims to be Christian…. she’s a liar!!! If you are a Demoncrap, you CANNOT be Christian!!! The scum of the earth (politicians, anyone associated with politics, and unbelievers) write books to further their cause and ANYONE that reads these books, let alone believes anything they say, are the worst fools in this world!! Books are written to make money… the writers lie, cheat and steal from all who buy this garbage. Satan is winning this battle on Earth, but in the end, believers will WIN the WAR!!!

    • SamVBar

      Amen Ron. You are so right it is impossible to be a TRUE Christian if you are a follower of the Demo Cult. They believe in everything the church is against. GOD will judge them in the end and what a day that will be.

    • SamVBar

      Ron you have actually hit on many subjects and I agree with each and every one of them. I am surprised that more people have not read your post and given you a thumbs up.

  • Beeker D.

    Should Have Known “THIS” Was Going To Happen! National Socio-Fascist demoKrat Party is full of

    Deceivers, Liars , Nematodes and Slimy Cesspool Characters. Even if Brazile thought she could get out, the others would just pull her back in or `DISPOSED` of her!

    She had to deny what she said or she never could have `SAFELY` taken an airplane flight again!

    • SamVBar

      Good assessment Beeker. No flight will be safe she is on.

  • mike

    As I read some of the other comments, I am heartened to hear my opinion stated. She has been visited by the death bringers of the Clintons. Her statement in the book concerning being “Sniped” also shows she knew the organization she was a part of. The Russians did not kill Seth. We know the organization that killed him. The crime will not be solved, I predict. Oh well keep your powder dry and check six.

    • SamVBar

      Right Oh Mike. Keep the powder dry and the Desert Eagle close at hand.

  • 1ForWisdom

    Mafia style people like the Clinton’s usually end up gettin wacked by their own lieutenants. It’s just a historical fact..

  • Hope

    There’s something really funny going on. Nothing about this whole thing sits right. It’s a set up for something – now we need to understand for what.

    • sweetqueen777

      They will somehow spin it to be Trump’s fault. LOL.

      • Hope

        I heard someone call on to Rush Limbaugh saying that he thinks Brazile is assigned to taking Hillary out to clear the way for a Michelle Obama run for president. I wish I could say I don’t buy it, but I don’t trust any of them! Lord help us!

  • SamVBar

    She has no doubt received death threats and she knows the fate of many who crossed Kiillary. Brazile should be afraid after the scores on other would be informers. Killary knows no bound when it comes to ridding herself of informers. Brazile should be put into a protection program and given a luxury cabana in Jamaica.

  • therealworld

    They are all Crooks and should be addressed as such. “Democratic National Criminals”

    It’s the same with oil companies. Get in their way and you gotta go.

  • Gregg Parker

    Fighting feeling of Clintonian Suicide I see… soon she’ll be saying Clinton begged her not to give those questions to her and she never suggested Clinton was running the DNC and instead was a victim of some rightwing conspiracy theory.. as soon as she can think one up…she could live to watch the rest of her hair turn gray… or at least through the night…

    The Bottom Line, this is the Trump Alternative, Can Real Americans Live with It??????????

    Liberalism is a Curse on our Country, it is Completely Un-American their Policy’s do Nothing for the American People, Not to mention add additional Cost to the American People, in every way shape and form. Our Country seems to have Been Infiltrated By Un-American Outsiders, Socialist/Communist, Dissidents who Have Found a Weak Link in our Politics to exploit, the Devastated Democratic Party. All Any Normal Americans have to do is take a good look at their Agenda? Block, Obstruct, Resist, in Short Rebellion, Next look at each Issue they are Fighting For, That all Goes Against Our Country, Our Flag and Anthem, Open Borders Massive amounts of Unknown Illegal’s Millions upon Millions who have never Taken the Oath or Pledge to this Country, Un-Vetted Refugees from the Middle East War Zones, with ISIS Terrorist stating they will Infiltrate, and Recruit to Kill Americans, We have No Clue how many Sleeper Terrorist already entered our Country, From our Open Border or these Refugees, On top of all that they Are Creating Sanctuary City’s and States to protect illegal’s and Criminals in all Categories, Criminals who Commit Crimes in one State then Run to a Sanctuary State for Protection, Even against Federal Prosecution. Does this not sound like the Undermining of the very fabric of our Country? Lets take a look at what seems Minor compared to the Above but fits the Profile, Tearing down Statues of our History, Calling everyone who Does not Agree with them Racist and with Violence to make their point. The Democrats and their Party have been Hijacked by much more then one Group, Antifa, BLM, Socialist, Communist, and so on. With one Goal in mind to see America Fail. What other Explanation could their Be??? Real Americans need to take a Hard look at where our country needs to go into the Future. It Definitely is not with this Rebellion and the Democrats. Our Children and Grandchildren need a Better Future then what the Democrats and Liberal’s have to offer. PS: Antifa has just been Caught by the FBI Colluding with ISIS Terrorist, Fact MSM is not covering it?

  • Maxine Albritton

    She was pretty sassy now to buckle. I would imagine she was threatened. No surprise there. The democrats cannot seem to keep their stories straight and they have to many friends that commit suicide with two bullets to the back of the head. That group is not for me, neither is their agenda. I like things like they were, no NWO, no new communism or old communism or any kind of the such. No lawlessness, no high outrageous taxes to fill the pockets of Washington’s political swamp. etc.

  • Robert Wayne

    I wonder how much they paid her to retract her statement.

  • colleen

    Clinton probably threatened to kill her.

  • bashinnc

    Wonder if the media would be so supportive if Donald Trump had bought the RNC and was elected!!!
    (Good thing the RNC did everything it could to get rid of Trump). Clinton was not elected because most honest Americans know she should be in jail. Her and her husband.

  • Tony B

    Amoral people have no problem killing. Brazile should be afraid for her life. I applaud her coming forward with truthful comments and pray for her and families safety. I hope she realizes that only the whole truth can set her free. Let the guilty pay. MAGA
