Donna Brazile wrote an article released yesterday on Politico. In it, she outlined the massive financial corruption of the democratic national committee, Obama, and the Clinton campaign. Oddly, she did not discuss her very direct involvement in providing then-candidate Clinton with questions to the debate. Apparently, that “secret” cheating doesn’t violate “everything that I stood for, all that I valued as a woman and as a public servant.”
Of course, her revelations have rocked the party. She is about to release a book detailing how the unethical activity of Hillary Clinton and her campaign was made possible by Wasserman-Schultz and former president Obama. Brazile cited “proof” contained on a financial agreement she discovered during her interim position as DNC Chair.
According to her, an agreement between two separate campaign funds and the DNC bought out the organization and made it Clinton’s whipping boy. Even Elizabeth Warren weighed in on Brazile’s announcement.
“We’ve got to hold this party accountable,” Warren said. “When Tom Perez was elected to chair of the DNC, the very first conversation I had with him was to say, ‘You’ve got to put together a Democratic Party in which everybody can have confidence that the party is working for Democrats rather than Democrats working for the party.’”
“This is a test for Tom Perez,” she continued. “And either he’s going to succeed by bringing Bernie Sanders and Bernie Sanders’s representatives into the process, and they’re going to say it’s fair, it works, we all believe it, or he’s going to fail.”
Damage control is on overtime as the party scrambles to retain the Bernie supporters alienated by Clinton’s shenanigans.
Brazile wrote that she “followed the money” to find the corruption within the party and called it a “cancer,” but not terminal. Apparently, Obama left the DNC $24 million in debt after the 2012 campaign. The White House was taking it’s time paying it off.
According to Brazile, Wasserman-Schultz didn’t do her job fundraising for the party and just allowed the Clinton Headquarters in Brooklyn to manage the funds. She wrote, “Officials from Hillary’s campaign had taken a look at the DNC’s books. Obama left the party $24 million in debt—$15 million in bank debt and more than $8 million owed to vendors after the 2012 campaign—and had been paying that off very slowly.”
“Obama’s campaign was not scheduled to pay it off until 2016. Hillary for America (the campaign) and the Hillary Victory Fund (its joint fundraising vehicle with the DNC) had taken care of 80 percent of the remaining debt in 2016, about $10 million, and had placed the party on an allowance.”
None of the DNC officers knew about this exchange of funds, so she says. But again, this is the same woman who denied giving Clinton the debate questions. She finally admitted in March that she cheated, but many wonder if Hillary had pulled off her scam on America and been elected if any of this would be confessed.
Brazile continued to make Wasserman-Shultz the scapegoat. Perhaps the democrats realize that their party is a stench and they are trying to place blame on a few who’ve already been exposed.
When the DNC emails were leaked, or hacked, every single democrat blasted the leaks and the media outright told Americans that the information shouldn’t be viewed because it was gained unlawfully. No outrage about the Clinton hijacking of the party, no righteous condemnation about their own racism, in short, none of the openness that Brazile is showing now.
Everyone actually downplayed the contents of the emails. That sort of coordinated suppression of the actual tactics that characterize the DNC is nothing new, so Brazile must be looking to make some money here. However, the fact remains that the Clinton campaign “had the DNC on life support, giving it money every month to meet its basic expenses, while the campaign was using the party as a fund-raising clearinghouse.” And, it needs $2-$4 million each month.
Individual contributions to a campaign are set at maximum $2,700. However, the people who had maxed out their campaign contribution could write another $353,400 to the Victory Fund, which was basically Hillary’s. It was supposed to be used by the party’s nominee, but Clinton had already assumed control before the voting even began.
Brazile wrote, “The money would be deposited in the states first, and transferred to the DNC shortly after that. Money in the battleground states usually stayed in that state, but all the other states funneled that money directly to the DNC, which quickly transferred the money to Brooklyn.”
She says that she asked Gary Gensler, “the victory fund was supposed to be for whoever was the nominee, and the state party races. You’re telling me that Hillary has been controlling it since before she got the nomination?”
She added, “’That was the deal that Robby struck with Debbie,’ he explained, referring to campaign manager Robby Mook. ‘It was to sustain the DNC. We sent the party nearly $20 million from September until the convention, and more to prepare for the election.’”
However, the states kept less than one half of one percent of the $82 million that was amassed for the fund. The “money-laundering” scheme is something that Clinton knows all about. When the DNC was questioned about it, the typical outrage and snubs followed.
Essentially, Brazile outlined the facts that everyone already knew, but no liberal in the media or politics would admit. Many believe that the admission is calculated to help revive the struggling image the party of slavery has garnered over the past 8 years.
