Former Democratic National Convention interim chair Donna Brazile has finally admitted she sent a debate question to Hillary Clinton’s campaign prior to a CNN debate last year.
Brazile wrote in TIME magazine:
Then 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. Vice Chair prior to assuming the interim D.N.C. Chair position was to share potential town hall topics with the Clinton campaign. I had been working behind the scenes to add more town hall events and debates to the primary calendar, and I helped ensure those events included diverse moderators and addressed topics vital to minority communities. My job was to make all our Democratic candidates look good, and I worked closely with both campaigns to make that happen. But sending those emails was a mistake I will forever regret.
She spends one paragraph out of 16 burying an admission in the last sentence. All of the other paragraphs are her pointing fingers at President Trump, Russia, and anyone else she felt like:
By stealing all the DNC’s emails and then selectively releasing those few, the Russians made it look like I was in the tank for Secretary Clinton. 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. 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 all the months the Russians monitored the D.N.C.’s email, they found just a handful of inappropriate emails, with no sign of anyone taking action to disadvantage the Sanders campaign.
Let’s take a stroll back through Brazile’s previous excuses starting with her being a “persecuted Christian.”
Speaking to Fox News’s Megyn Kelly last year, Brazile angrily deflected responsibility and alleged the damning e-mail was “doctored:”
"As a Christian woman, I understand persecution… I have seen so many doctored emails. I have seen things that come from me at 2 in the morning that I don't even send. There are several email addresses that I once used. This has not been verified.”
But then it was determined that those e-mails weren’t doctored at all as she claimed, but that didn’t stop her from continuing the lie.
Then, back in February, Brazile had a new excuse: “The e-mails that were allegedly sent to me, or sent from me, you know, told a story, but it didn’t tell the complete story.”
Almost a month later and Brazile can no longer continue to lie: “But sending those emails was a mistake I will forever regret.”
It took her long enough.
