Former Interim DNC Chair Calls Clinton Joint Fundraising Agreement A 'Cancer'

GettyImages-866839122

Donna Brazile disclosed the agreement in a new book called "Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns that Put Donald Trump in the White House". Brazile explains how she promised to investigate whether or not Hillary Clinton's people "rigged the nomination process".

Brazile describes an agreement between the Hillary Victory Fund, a joint fundraising organization between the campaign and the DNC, Hillary for America, Clinton's campaign, and the DNC.

In the excerpt, Brazile doesn't talk much more about those emails, but she trashes Wasserman Schultz's poor fundraising skills, which she says left the Democratic Party $2 million in debt.

While the agreement was technically not illegal, Brazile wrote that it struck her as "unethical".

Brazile sums it up near the end: "If the fight had been fair, one campaign would not have control of the party before the voters had decided which one they wanted to lead".

In Clinton's book "What Happened", she blamed Sanders for inflicting "lasting damage" to her campaign during the Democratic primary season, opening the door for Trump for using the "Crooked Hillary" slogan in his campaign, CNN reported.

Trump Behind 'Big Lie Campaign' on Russian Investigation, Says John Podesta
Later in the day, Podesta announced his resignation at a staff meeting at the Podesta Group's Washington headquarters. John Podesta is fighting back. "Now I'm the victim of a big lie campaign by the American President".

Tony Podesta reportedly leaving the lobbying firm he founded amid Mueller investigation
The Podesta Group was one of several companies paid to work on a PR campaign organized by Manafort to promote Ukraine in the U.S. Washington D.C. lobbyist Tony Podesta , the brother of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta , resigned from his firm Monday.

"When I hung up the call to Bernie, I started to cry, not out of guilt, but out of anger", Brazile wrote. As details of the arrangement emerged in the spring of 2016, the joint fund-raising effort drew a great deal of scrutiny from the Sanders camp, the Vermont senator's supporters, and the state party committees that signed on. "We sent the party almost $20 million from September until the convention, and more to prepare for the election".

She said the issue would prove a test of new DNC leader Tom Perez, who will have to inspire "confidence that the party is working for Democrats rather than Democrats are working for the party". "She hadn't been very interested in controlling the party - she let Clinton's headquarters in Brooklyn do as it desired so she didn't have to inform the party officers how bad the situation was". She said the only way the party survived was from the money Mrs. Clinton's campaign was providing. It had been signed in August 2015, four months after the former Secretary of State announced she was running for president and a year before she officially became the Democratic nominee.

Hot Air suggests that Brazile is being a little coy about her depiction of herself as uncovering this corruption only when she took over the DNC.

"Bernie's people were angry for their own reasons, saying this was part of a calculated strategy to throw the nomination to Hillary", Brazile wrote.

Sanders himself has somewhat toned down his criticism of the DNC during that span, but what he says - especially given he seems to want to run again in 2020 - will go a long way in determining how the party moves forward.
