Brazile Breaks Bad

It confirms what we already knew, but the real news is in the “who” and “how” that this reveals.

In excerpts from “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns that Put Donald Trump in the White House,” published in Politico, Brazile writes the DNC was rigged in Clinton’s favor because her campaign was largely financing the party early on in the presidential election.


“Hillary for America (the campaign) and the Hillary Victory Fund (its joint fundraising vehicle with the DNC) had taken care of 80% of the remaining debt in 2016, about $10 million, and had placed the party on an allowance,” Brazile wrote.
As Politico reported, Brazile notes that while Clinton claimed support for the DNC meant supporting state parties, state parties kept less than half of 1% of the $82 million raised by Clinton’s campaign fundraisers.
“Secretary Clinton is looting funds meant for the state parties to skirt fundraising limits on her presidential campaign,” Jeff Weaver, Sanders’ campaign manager, said in a statement at the time. “We think the Clinton campaign should let the state parties keep their fair share of the cash.”

    No worries.  Mueller was presiding over the FBI at the time the agency was investigating a Russian bribery and extortion scheme connected to the uranium one deal that sold 1/5 of our reserves to Russia, but the agency declined to notify Congress of its investigation and prevented a confidential informant from notifying lawmakers.  Don’t think for a minute that this will matter either.
