DNC’s Andrew Therriault calls Clinton attack BS, ‘not willing to let my people be thrown under the bus’

The former director of data science for the Democratic National Committee said Hillary Clinton’s complaint that the DNC gave her no help in running against Donald Trump

“DNC data folks: today’s accusations are f***ing bulls**t, and I hope you understand the good you did despite that nonsense,” Andrew Therriault tweeted Wednesday.

“Private mode be damned, this is too important,” he said in a second tweet. “I’m not willing to let my people be thrown under the bus without a fight.”

The tweets appeared to be taken down, but were captured by a CBS political contributor.

Therriault was responding to Clinton’s speech on Wednesday, when she said the DNC gave her “nothing” when it came to data once she won the Democratic nomination.

“I get the nomination, so I’m now the nominee of the Democratic Party,” she said. “I inherit nothing from the Democratic Party. I mean, it was bankrupt. It was on the verge of insolvency. Its data was mediocre to poor, non-existent, wrong. I had to inject money into it.”

Therriault also stated that Clinton used the DNC as a “laundering vehicle” pointing out that “many flaws in DNC systems could have been avoided/fixed if [the] campaign didn’t starve us for resources.”

“All that said, irony of her bashing DNC data: *our* models never had mi/wi/pa looking even close to safe,’ he added. ‘Her team thought they knew better,” Therriault said, noting the three midwestern states Clinton lost – Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania – that led to her defeat.
