Democratic National Committee chair Tom Perez continues to deflect questions over Hillary Clinton’s secret takeover of the DNC, repeatedly refusing to answer questions over whether the former Secretary of State stole the nomination from Senator Bernie Sanders.
Perez was speaking with Fox News this week when he was pressed over Donna Brazile’s recent allegations that the Hillary Campaign seized control of the Democratic Party nearly a year before securing the nomination.
“I’ve got to ask you about Donna Brazile, Tom. Obviously, she’s railing against the DNC in her new book. We’ve seen her all over the place revealing fresh divides within the party in the aftermath of the 2016 election,” said Fox’s Maria Bartiromo. “What is going on, Tom?”
“Donna’s a good friend and I think you need to ask her that question,” Perez said. “What I can tell you, Maria, is that I was out on the stump everywhere and there wasn’t one person who asked me about Donna Brazile and the past. They were asking me about their health care; they wanted to continue the process that Terry McAuliffe has made in Virginia. They wanted to make sure we had people uniting us and not dividing us.”
“Obviously there was a real division within the Party, Tom,” fired-back Bartiromo. “It was rigged, everybody was behind Hillary Clinton and not Bernie Sanders.”
