After Donna Brazile learned about Hillary’s takeover of the DNC, she refused to expose her.
Politico has published a lengthy excerpt of the new book by Donna Brazile. This seems to mark an attempted DNC coup against Clinton. Could this be a signal that Hilary is about to be charged with something? I hope so.
But at the same time, Brazile has to admit that she sold out to Clinton during the primary. Not exactly heroic.
Brazile writes in Politico under the headline, “Inside Hillary Clinton’s Secret Takeover of the DNC.”
I had to keep my promise to Bernie. I was in agony as I dialed him. Keeping this secret was against everything that I stood for, all that I valued as a woman and as a public servant.
“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.”
I discussed the fundraising agreement that each of the candidates had signed. Bernie was familiar with it, but he and his staff ignored it. They had their own way of raising money through small donations. I described how Hillary’s campaign had taken it another step.
I told Bernie I had found Hillary’s Joint Fundraising Agreement. I explained that the cancer was that she had exerted this control of the party long before she became its nominee. Had I known this, I never would have accepted the interim chair position, but here we were with only weeks before the election.
Bernie took this stoically. He did not yell or express outrage.[…]
I urged Bernie to work as hard as he could to bring his supporters into the fold with Hillary, and to campaign with all the heart and hope he could muster. He might find some of her positions too centrist, and her coziness with the financial elites distasteful, but he knew and I knew that the alternative was a person who would put the very future of the country in peril. I knew he heard me. I knew he agreed with me, but I never in my life had felt so tiny and powerless as I did making that call.
