Trump Wants 'Crooked Hillary' Investigated Over DNC News

"Crooked Hillary bought the DNC & then stole the Democratic Primary from Crazy Bernie!"

Donald Trump took to his favorite medium on Friday morning to question why the Democrats aren't under investigation after the revelations laid out in a new book by Donna Brazile. In Hacks, Brazile lays out the state of the Democratic Party when she took over from Debbie Wasserman Schultz in 2016.

She writes that the party was deeply in debt thanks to spending by President Barack Obama and that Wasserman Schultz was a bad leader who had not been active in fundraising. In fact, by the time Brazile took over, she writes that the party was beholden to the Clinton campaign and a joint fundraising initiative that gave Clinton immense power even before she had the nomination:

Hillary would control the party’s finances, strategy, and all the money raised. Her campaign had the right of refusal of who would be the party communications director, and it would make final decisions on all the other staff.  

If Brazile's name sounds familiar it might be over her own dirty deeds for Hillary, which included sending questions to Hillary in advance of a CNN debate.

Now Brazile is trying to make amends and appear as if she were not part of the collusion that denied Bernie Sanders a fair shot at the Democratic Primary. That being said, the book does lay out many problems at the DNC and exposes the level of rot, which is why President Trump took to Twitter.

Trump went on to write that he had always believed that he would have faced off against Sanders unless there was cheating, which Brazile's book seems to indicate there was. Towards the end of the excerpt published by Politico, Brazile describes calling Sanders to let him know the bad news just days before the election.

“Hello, senator. I’ve completed my review of the DNC and I did find the cancer,” I said. “But I will not kill the patient.”  

Brazile explained that she wouldn't overturn the nomination so close to the general election and asked Sanders to put aside his own feelings to help Hillary defeat Trump. In the end, that didn't happen.
