Brazile: Passing debate questions to Clinton 'a mistake I will forever regret'

Donna Brazile admits leaking debate questions to Clinton camp: 'A mistake I will forever regret'

Donna Brazile admits leaking debate questions to Clinton camp: 'A mistake I will forever regret'

A pair of e-mails from March 2016 showed Brazile advising Clinton's communications director that Hillary would get questions about the death penalty at one debate and the Flint, Mich., water crisis at a second.

"My job was to make all our Democratic candidates look good, and I worked closely with both campaigns to make that happen", she wrote.

Now that she has been replaced as the DNC chair, however, Brazile is claiming that passing the questions to the Clinton campaign was "a mistake I will forever regret". "Vice Chair prior to assuming the interim D.N.C. Chair position was to share potential town hall topics with the Clinton campaign", Brazil added.

CNN would go on to sever ties with Brazile after the emails were leaked.

The website notes that "Brazile spoke with Journal-isms after publishing an essay in Time magazine that some reporters interpreted as confirming that she had passed along town hall questions to Clinton".

"When I was asked last July to step in temporarily as D.N.C. Chair", she explained, "I knew things were amiss. But sending those emails was a mistake I will forever regret".

"It's not only unseemly, but it's demonic ... and then she continues the narrative that it's all really the Russians fault", Pirro said. What you're - well, for suggestive e-mails were stolen.

Rep Devin Nunes asked Rogers if there was any evidence that Russian Federation interfered with vote tallies in several states. Comey testified on a variety of subjects including the investigation into former U.S.

So, Brazile is anxious that it looks like she was showing favoritism to Clinton, not that she was subverting the veracity of the news organization she worked for, the fairness of the democratic process, and the journalism she now wants to hold Trump accountable.

A new batch of stolen emails published later that month revealed another questionable email from Brazile to Podesta with the subject, "One of the questions directed to HRC tomorrow is from a woman with a rash".

"Her family has lead poison and she will ask what, if anything, will Hillary do as president to help the ppl of Flint", wrote Brazile, who served as the Democratic National Committee's (DNC) interim chairwoman this past summer.

Brazile has since resigned from CNN.

Still, Donna Brazile maintained innocence and argued with Fox News host Megyn Kelly when confronted with the evidence. I am not going to open up anything postmarked from Russian Federation.

This Times essay marks the first time Donna Brazile has admitted to leaking the questions.

"What a lying, scheming, Machiavellian, Democrat", she said. She says that the point of the WikiLeaks e-mails was "sowing division in our ranks" and that left "Sanders supporters understandably angry".
