Excerpts from former DNC Chief Donna Brazile’s upcoming memoir continues to send shockwaves in Democratic circles as the Clinton insider spills the beans on Debbie Schultz, Hillary, Obama, and others.
An excerpt, titled “Inside Hillary Clinton’s Secret Takeover of the DNC” was published Thursday by Politico, and illustrates the infighting, secrecy, and ultimate takeover of the Democratic Party by senior Clinton operates months before she won the nomination.
“Debbie [Schultz] 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,” she wrote.
Brazile then turned her sites on Obama, saying “President Barack Obama’s neglect had left the party in significant debt. As Hillary’s campaign gained momentum, she resolved the party’s debt and put it on a starvation diet. It had become dependent on her campaign for survival.”
While the former DNC boss doesn’t say the arrangement was “illegal,” she does call Hillary’s takeover “unethical.”
“The funding arrangement with [Hillary for America] and the victory fund agreement was not illegal, but it sure looked unethical,” she added.
