Colluding for Clinton

DNC's Donna Brazile resigns from CNN after helping Hillary with debate prep.

The DNC seems to have trouble finding leadership with integrity. First came the revelations implicating now former DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz in working to rig the Democrat nomination process in favor of Hillary Clinton — revelations that led to DWS’s resignation. Now her replacement, Donna Brazile, has been caught in similar rigging. WikiLeaks’ steady release of hacked emails uncovered a second instance of Brazile alerting the Clinton campaign to prepare for a specific question that was subsequently asked the following day at a town hall forum sponsored by CNN. Donna Brazile had been working for CNN, which is presumably how she was able to get the questions in advance. When Brazile was tapped for the interim DNC position, she took leave from CNN.

CNN was clearly embarrassed by the apparent political collusion and has accepted Brazile’s resignation. The network asserted, “We are completely uncomfortable with what we have learned about her interactions with the Clinton campaign while she was a CNN contributor.” CNN also claimed it “never gave Brazile access to any questions, prep material, attendee list, background information or meetings in advance of a town hall or debate.” But this is also the network that in other instances has unabashedly helped Clinton.

Fox News’ Megyn Kelly called out Brazile for emailing questions to the Clinton campaign, asking her, “Who gave you the questions?” Brazile sought only to deflect, saying, “I am not going to try to validate falsified information.” She claimed persecuted status, railed about “stolen” material, and told Kelly to “go to Russia” for answers.

It doesn’t seem to matter who chairs the DNC, it’s clear that Hillary Clinton is the one running the show. As Americans have become all too familiar over the years, “conniving” and Clintons go hand in hand.
