Some media ignore Donna Brazile attacks Hillary Clinton, DNC over rigged primary against Bernie Sanders

Former interim chairperson for the Democratic National Committee and CNN contributor Donna Brazile detailed how Hillary Clinton’s campaign gained significant control over the Democratic National Committee’s finances and strategy in exchange for helping the party wipe out 2012 presidential campaign debt. ABC, NBC and CBS’ evening newscasts failed to even cover the news.

Brazile explains how the party rigged the primary for Clinton to defeat Bernie Sanders, confirming the contents in leaked emails released ahead of the 2016 vote.

“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. This was not a criminal act, but as I saw it, it compromised the party’s integrity,” Brazile added.

From her book, Brazile presents herself as having promised to Sanders to get to the bottom of whether the primaries had been “rigged.”

Here’s her description of reaching out to Sanders …

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. Instead he asked me what I thought Hillary’s chances were. The polls were unanimous in her winning but what, he wanted to know, was my own assessment?

DNC emails were leaked and confirmed the sketchy primary results and how the cards were stacked against Sanders.

While the Talking Points Memo is accurate on the surface in stating that “It wasn’t rigged. She had lots of advantages from simply being the establishment candidate…” it is plainly clear that the superdelegate structure, reporting of vote counts and media coverage from the DNC all pushed Clinton ahead and quelled the Bernie momentum.

Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren even appeared on CNN to discuss the scandal but ABC’s “World News Tonight,” CBS’s “Evening News” and “NBC Nightly News” skipped it completely.

“The Donna Brazile story is astonishing. The media loves to tell stories of Republican discord. Here’s the woman who was the interim head of the DNC saying Bernie Sanders got screwed by the party and Team Clinton. No matter how much the media wants to hide that, it’s a huge issue and will impact future elections,” Media Research Center Vice President Dan Gainor told Fox News.

Brazile took over as interim party chairperson in July 2016 when the DNC was plagued by email scandals and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla. was ousted on the eve of the party’s 2016 convention.

“Debbie was not a good manager. 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,” Brazile wrote. “Obama left the party $24 million in debt—$15 million in bank debt and more than $8 million owed to vendors after the 2012 campaign—and had been paying that off very slowly.”
