Former DNC boss Donna Brazile doubled-down on the media’s hyped “blue wave” this week, telling supporters the Democratic Party is on the “cusp” of a historic year just weeks ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.
Brazile was speaking in Washington, DC Monday when she urged Democratic voters to head to the polls this November, saying “We say this every year, but this election has consequences.”
“If we vote, this will be a historic year,” she continued. “We need to take the right to vote seriously.”
Brazile made national headlines last year when she unveiled Hillary Clinton’s “secret take-over” of the Democratic Party ahead of the 2016 presidential election; detailing how the former Obama official “stole” the primary from Sen. Bernie Sanders.

BRAZILE VS BEHAR: Watch Donna Brazile SHUT DOWN Joy Behar On LIVE TV
Former Democratic National Committee chief Donna Brazile went head-to-head with The View’s Joy Behar on Tuesday, firing back at the liberal host after she accused the DNC boss of “giving red-meat to Trump” supporters with her new bombshell exposé of Hillary’s troubled campaign.
“You threw a lot of people under the bus. The DNC is mad at you, Robby Mook is mad, maybe even Hillary might be mad,” said Behar. “Here’s the question I have for you: Why the timing of this book? Today’s Election Day, why are you giving red-meat to Trump’s side?”
“A lot of people ask me that. I set my launch for my book when I sent in my proposal,” fired-back Brazile. “I thought a year after a Presidential election, that’s when you have a lot of debate and dissent. Everyone is writing books. Mr. Biden’s book is coming out, Mr. Sanders’ book has come out, Mrs. Clinton’s book.”
“I wanted to tell my story about what happened. I wasn’t writing to make someone upset, I was upset. I cried enough for everybody, I apologized enough for everybody,” she added.

DNC IN RUINS: Donna Brazile COMES CLEAN on Schultz, Hillary, Obama
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.
