"I said I would get to the bottom of everything".
The fundraising agreement, signed in August 2015 during the primary process, was unusual for an open seat and, according to Brazile, gave the Clinton campaign oversight of some DNC decisions.
Geraldo Rivera said this morning that the newest revelations about Hillary Clinton and the DNC are the "nail in the coffin" when it comes to the Clintons and the Democratic Party. The White House has repeatedly sought to turn the attention of the probe, which is looking into potential collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, to Clinton and her campaign. "I'm going to tell my story".
Brazile wrote she was stunned to find out about the agreement and said it was a "cancer" on the party.
Donna Brazile, the Democratic National Committee's interim chairwoman during key months of the presidential campaign, said Clinton's team essentially took over day-to-day operations of the DNC, in essence rigging the system against Senator Bernie Sanders, who was challenging Clinton for the party's nomination.
"Her campaign had the right of refusal of who would be the party communications director, and it would make final decisions on all the other staff", Brazile wrote.
Both the Clinton and Sanders campaigns signed agreements that allowed the presidential candidates to raise money for the DNC. They clearly failed to disclose that they had a preexisting partnership with his opponent which gave Hillary effective first-look control of the organization.
"I don't know what Donna Brazile fell for", Perez said.
But, she says, "I thought of Hillary, and all the women in the country who were so proud of and excited about her".
We were shocked to learn the news that Donna Brazile actively considered overturning the will of the Democratic voters by attempting to replace Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine as the Democratic Presidential and Vice Presidential nominees. "That is unacceptable. To that end, the new DNC under my leadership is committed to the task of making sure that our 2020 nominating process will be unquestionably fair and transparent". Now on Sunday, she has dialed back by clarifying that having concluded an investigation she has "no evidence, none whatsoever" to support that Clinton had "rigged" the primaries.
But a DNC official told CNN that the rules were irrelevant because there was no vacancy, and Brazile would not have been able to seek Clinton's removal from the ticket without one.
"We do not recognize the campaign she portrays in the book", reads the letter, which was signed by top aides like Clinton's confidante Huma Abedin, former campaign chairman John Podesta and former campaign manager Robby Mook.
"We should never confuse unity with unanimity, and it is my unequivocal goal to regain the trust of voters and unify and strengthen our party to ensure we can elect Democrats from the school board to the oval office", Perez wrote.
