The chair of the Democratic National Committee clammed-up when pressed over Donna Brazile’s recent allegations that Hillary Clinton and DNC officials “stole” the nomination from Bernie Sanders; quietly saying “we’re moving forward.”
DNC Chief Tom Perez was speaking with CNBC News when he was asked to comment on his predecessor’s bombshell admission that the Clinton campaign “secretly took over” the Democratic party before winning the nomination.
“I can’t let you go without asking if you’ve read Donna Brazile’s piece about the DNC that’s in Politico today. Any comment at all?” asked the reporter.
“We’re moving forward. I’ve been asked that question a number of times since I started. One of my goals as the DNC chair is to make sure that the nominating process in 2020 is a process that’s totally fair and transparent for everybody,” said Perez.
“That’s what we’re fighting for, that’s what we will do. We’re going to set the primary debate schedule well in advance of when we know who the candidates who will be there are. We have to make sure that everything’s fair and open and that everyone has a fair shake,” he added.
Watch Perez dodge the question above.
