High-ranking Democrats and media liberals are turning on former DNC chair Donna Brazile over the excepts from her upcoming book about the internal corruption of the DNC by Hillary Clinton’s campaign. In the latest excerpts, she says the Clinton campaign treated her like “Patsy the slave.” She referred to the way Hillary was given control of the DNC before she had the nomination and sucked it dry of money as a “cancer” (FYI: she claims that Hillary circumvented campaign finance law limits on donations to candidates by encouraging donors to give much higher amounts to state Democratic parties, then transferring that money to the DNC, then spending it on her own campaign. Which, if it were done by someone to whom laws apply, would be called “money laundering.” But maybe Hillary didn’t launder it, she just wiped it with a cloth.)
Brazile also compared the political party catastrophe she had to deal with to Hurricane Katrina and said that after Hillary’s public collapse at the 9/11 ceremony, she considered taking steps to replace her with Joe Biden.
Just as with the release of the DNC emails by WikiLeaks, all this public exposure of what was actually going on behind the scenes made some powerful Democrats awfully unhappy. Hillary For America put out an open letter that included this:
“We were shocked to learn the news that Donna Brazile actively considered overturning the will of the Democratic voters by attempting to replace Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine as the Democratic Presidential and Vice Presidential nominees. It is particularly troubling and puzzling that she would seemingly buy into false Russian-fueled propaganda, spread by both the Russians and our opponent, about our candidate’s health… We do not recognize the campaign she portrays in the book.”
First of all, kudos for having the brass to attack Republicans over “Russian-fueled propaganda” when your candidate funneled millions through her attorney’s office to purchase a whole dossier full of it. Also for crying about thwarting the will of Democratic voters when your candidate rigged the primaries against Bernie Sanders. But here’s the most important "puzzling" question of all: Why is there still a “Hillary For America”?
Brazile responded that to those who are telling her to shut up and not tell her story, she says, “Go to hell.” Sounds like the DNC already blazed a trail there first.
