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. My job was to make all our Democratic candidates look good, and I worked closely with both campaigns to make that happen.
Writing in Time magazine, Brazile said she would "forever regret" the decision, which was revealed after WikiLeaks published thousands of emails belonging to Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.
The leaks occurred while Brazil was working for the cable news station, which immediately cut ties with her when the scandal broke.
In an essay written for Time, Brazile recounts how the DNC was hacked during her tenure as interim chair, and eventually admits guilt.
In reality, not only was I not playing favorites, the more competitive and heated the primary got, the harder D.N.C. staff worked to be scrupulously fair and beyond reproach.
In 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.
"It's not only unseemly, but it's demonic ... and then she continues the narrative that it's all really the Russians fault", Pirro said. "You're so interested in talking about stolen material; you're like a thief that wants to bring into the night the things that you found that [were] in the gutter".
On October 14th, CNN accepted Brazile's resignation as a network contributor.
It has now been proven and admitted that Hillary Clinton got debate questions in advance from Donna Brazile, but her opponent Bernie Sanders did not.
So, Brazile is anxious that it looks like she was showing favoritism to Clinton, not that she was subverting the veracity of the news organization she worked for, the fairness of the democratic process, and the journalism she now wants to hold Trump accountable. I am not going to open up anything postmarked from Russian Federation. "I as a black woman wanted Flint to be front and center in our conversation about who should be the next president", she said.
Pirro called Brazile's actions "unseemly" and "demonic", and said that Brazile tried to shift blame from her mistake onto a third party. "Despite the strong, public support I received from top Sanders campaign aides in the wake of those leaks, the media narrative played out just as the Russians had hoped, leaving Sanders supporters understandably angry and sowing division in our ranks".
