CNN’s Jake Tapper: Donna Brazile's Leak to Clinton Camp ‘Unethical,’ ‘Horrifying’

"Journalistically it’s horrifying."

CNN's Jake Tapper has decried DNC chair Donna Brazile as "unethical" for emails that show her leaking upcoming debate questions to Hillary Clinton's campaign during her primary battle with socialist Bernie Sanders. 

Speaking with radio host Larry O'Connor on Thursday, Tapper called the leak "very, very troubling" while maintaining that Brazile is "a good person."

"It’s horrifying. Journalistically it’s horrifying," Tapper said, "and I’m sure it will have an impact on partnering with this organization in the future and I’m sure it will have an effect on… Donna Brazile is no longer with CNN because she’s with the DNC right now, but I’m sure it will have some impact on Donna Brazile."

Tapper also assured everyone that CNN takes this "very, very seriously." What planet is he living on?

"It’s horrifying and very, very upsetting and I can’t condemn it any more than… I condemn it in no uncertain terms, it’s awful," said Tapper. 

Brazile has maintained she never sent the questions to Hillary's campaign.

"I never had access to questions and would never have shared them with the candidates if I did," Brazile said in a statement.

The latest excuse for the Democrats regarding these leaked emails has been that the Russians have tainted them to spin the election.
