During the Democrat primary, Donna Brazile, the current interim chair of the Democrat National Committee (DNC) was both a paid CNN contributor and the vice-chair of the DNC. Earlier this month, Wikileaks email revealed that Brazile, a longtime Clinton ally, had given the Clinton campaign a question that Hillary would be asked at the March 13 town hall with then-primary opponent Bernie Sanders.
Brazile vehemently denied that she passed a question to the Hillary campaign, claiming that we don’t know if the emails had been doctored. She even got into a very heated exchange with FOX News’ Megyn Kelly over it saying that as a Christian woman, she understands persecution. Brazile added, “I will not sit here and be persecuted because your information is totally false.” But, on Monday morning, new Wikileaks emails revealed that Donna Brazile leaked another question to the Clinton campaign on March 5, just prior to the CNN debate that took place in Flint, Michigan on March 6.
Here is a copy of the email with the question Donna Brazile leaked to Hillary Clinton via her campaign chair, John Podesta, and communications director, Jennifer Palmieri.
Hillary was indeed asked a question on that very topic during the Flint, Michigan debate.
CNN released a statement, after being approached with this damning revelation by The Hill, indicating that not only have they severed ties with Brazile, they are also “uncomfortable” with what they have learned regarding her actions.
“On October 14th, CNN accepted Donna Brazile’s resignation as a CNN contributor.” The statement continues, “We are completely uncomfortable with what we have learned about her interactions with the Clinton campaign while she was a CNN contributor.”
One day prior to the Wikileaks release, which implicates her once again using information received as a CNN contributor to assist the Clinton campaign during the primary, Donna Brazile tweeted out a plea.
Please God, let this end soon
