Interim Democratic National Committee (DNC) chair Donna Brazile just switched sides moments ago. What she said threw Hillary Clinton and Barrack Obama right under the bus.
She exposed Obama and Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz for essentially handing over complete control of the democratic party to Hillary Clinton.
Brazile set out to find out if DNC had improperly assisted Hillary Clinton secure the party’s nomination, as leaked internal emails suggested. She believes that Clinton cheated her way into the DNC pick.
“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 in Politico Magazine.
“The agreement—signed by Amy Dacey, the former CEO of the DNC, and Robby Mook with a copy to Marc Elias—specified that in exchange for raising money and investing in the DNC, Hillary would control the party’s finances, strategy, and all the money raised,” Brazile wrote. “Her campaign had the right of refusal of who would be the party communications director, and it would make final decisions on all the other staff. The DNC also was required to consult with the campaign about all other staffing, budgeting, data, analytics, and mailings.”
Obama and Wasserman Schultz are largely to blame for placing the DNC in such a perilous financial state that they were forced to rely on Clinton campaign money, according to Brazile. She points out that Obama “left the party $24 million in debt” and charges Wasserman Schultz with exacerbating the party’s financial strain by refusing to trim down the DNC staff during non-election years.
“The party chair usually shrinks the staff between presidential election campaigns, but Debbie had chosen not to do that. She had stuck lots of consultants on the DNC payroll, and Obama’s consultants were being financed by the DNC, too.”
She says she failed to see the enthusiasm behind Hillary Clinton that she saw for Bernie Sanders – which raised some flags for her. “I had to be frank with him. I did not trust the polls, I said. I told him I had visited states around the country and I found a lack of enthusiasm for her everywhere.”
