Podesta Emails Show Brazile Shared Questions with Clinton Campaign

HeadlineNov 01, 2016

Democratic Party strategist Donna Brazile has resigned from CNN after emails released by WikiLeaks showed Brazile shared some questions for a CNN-hosted Democratic primary debate in Flint, Michigan, with Hillary Clinton’s campaign ahead of the debate between Clinton and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders in March. Brazile was a paid commentator for CNN. One of the emails Brazile wrote to Clinton campaign chairperson John Podesta had the subject line “One of the questions directed to HRC tomorrow is from a woman with a rash,” and read, “Her family has lead poison and she will ask what, if anything, will Hillary do as president to help the ppl of Flint.”
