Former interim Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Donna Brazile claims in her new book that Hillary Clinton surreptitiously took over the DNC before she had won the Democratic primary, actively squeezing out her primary rival Bernie Sanders.

In an excerpt from her new book “Hacks,” published by Politico, Brazile said she promised Sanders that she would get to the bottom of whether Clinton had “rigged the nomination process.” She wrote, “By September 7, the day I called Bernie, I had found my proof and it broke my heart.”

Brazile also describes in “Hacks” a fundraising agreement between the Hillary Victory Fund, Hillary for America, and the DNC that specified Hillary would control the “party’s finances, strategy, and all the money raised” in exchange for Clinton raising money and investing in the DNC. It was signed long before Clinton became the nominee.

Under normal circumstances, Clinton should not have had control of the party’s funding and strategy until after she was formally chosen as a candidate during the summer convention. In the case of the 2016 race, Clinton had control in August 2015 — which was almost a year before the convention.

“The funding arrangement with Hillary For America and the victory fund agreement was not illegal, but it sure looked unethical. 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.

Critics have already pounced on Brazile throwing Clinton under the bus. Mediate’s Caleb Ecarma writes:

The irony in Brazile’s story is that she herself attempted to unethically “rig” the election to help Clinton, as she leaked a CNN debate question to the Democrat candidate while she was a commentator at the network. She also shared potential discussion topics with the Clinton campaign for a CNN town hall — another instance of Brazile’s unethical, above-the-rules behavior to favor the former secretary of state. While Brazile has said she will “forever regret” these actions, her act of shock and disgust in Clinton’s “rig” of the DNC is akin to the pot calling the kettle black.

    The rich and powerful have always controlled this and every country, they keep us divided over such stuff as gun rights, abortion,equal rights and stuff . MLK tried to unite us, minorities and poor white folks and look what happened to him, so until we the people can truly unite, we are doomed to what we experience everyday

    And had Bernie “Communist” Sanders became the nominee trump campaign would have rigged the election against him. They probably would have dug up all of his communist ties.

  3. At this point who cares?????

    Bernie shot himself in the foot by not reaching out to the African American community.
    He did not campaign in ANY of our neighborhoods-therefore, his ass lost.

    Glad he went back to Vermont, where there are probably one or two folks of color!!!!!!

    • He didn’t need the AA vote the Hispanic and young white adults were his niche
      why do you think Hilary sabotaged NV AZ NM in the primary’s

    George, most of know neither party has our back and they will reject any “third” party before it ever gains momentum. The independent, the green, what next? I’m sorry so say, the electoral college determines who becomes president, therefore, it’s not even necessary for me to cast my vote there.
    However, the primaries, mid-term, local level, and state level elections are most important. But somehow and for whatever reason, these elections yield the least voter turnout, I just never understood why. I don’t think people really understand how our government works. No amount of “school house rock” has been able to make people understand how critically important these decision-makers are to our livelihoods. These politicians need to get their shit together, but as long as we keep accepting bullshit, they will keep feeding it to us. It’s time for blacks to make it their business to vote in every election.

    Our two party system is a joke! Both parties use all Americans not just blacks . It’s all about money and power at the end of the day, if we can’t come up with a third party, the 99% is doomed to a meaningless conversation about which party has our backs !!

  6. If you did not do anything about it at the time, you need to keep your mouth shut now. You already have been banned from CNN. Keep running your mouth and you will be banned from all TV. As a matter of fact, have you been banned already? Haven’t seen you in a while.

  7. Hell this is nothing new FOX news reported on this last year why do you think the Dem’s keep pumping their “useful Idiot” constituency with bogus Trump Russia collusion this is the real collusion but thinks to MSNBC CNN the plantation neggros will remain clueless
