Treasury calls for looser oversight of insurers Trump's tax plan and the certainty of Democratic resistance MORE (D-Mass.) said Thursday she believes the 2016 Democratic presidential primary was rigged for Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonBlumenthal: Trump-tied data firm reaching out to WikiLeaks "significant" Tillerson eliminates key State Department sanctions office: report Intel Dem: What's in dossier more important than who paid for it MORE. "By Sept. 7, the day I called Bernie, I had found my proof and it broke my heart". In exchange for the paying down of the DNC's debt, Clinton's campaign was given control of the "party's finances, strategy, and all the money raised", Brazile wrote.
Brazile found that her predecessor, Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, had allowed Clinton's headquarters in Brooklyn take care of the party's massive debt - which she claimed was up to $24 million after Barack Obama's 2012 campaign - and the other officers were kept in the dark about it.
Individuals who had maxed out their $2,700 contribution limit to the campaign could write an additional check for $353,400 to the Hillary Victory Fund - that figure represented $10,000 to each of the thirty-two states' parties who were part of the Victory Fund agreement - $320,000 - and $33,400 to the DNC.
"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". I explained that the cancer was that she had exerted this control of the party long before she became its nominee.
Brazile, now a political analyst, took over as interim DNC chair in July 2016 after the resignation of Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
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.More news: Defence secretary quits after apology for touching journalist's knee
I had been wondering why it was that I couldn't write a press release without passing it by Brooklyn.
The agreement between the DNC and the Clinton camp was signed in August 2015, several months before the primary season began and nearly a full year before she officially secured the nomination over Vermont Sen.
This is also somewhat self-serving for Brazile, given the DNC continued to struggle during and after her tenure, especially financially.
"We're moving forward, we're building", Perez said during an interview on CNBC. The Clinton camp forcefully dismissed Sanders's accusation and argued that his attacks had "gotten out of hand". Brazile, who would really like to retain her standing in the party, has knifed Team Hillary, and has demonstrated that she can be useful to the new leaders of the Democrats.
She said the independent from Vermont took the news "stoically".
