Donna Brazile: DNC Struck Unethical Deal with Clinton During Election Campaign

HeadlineNov 03, 2017

Former Democratic National Committee interim chair Donna Brazile says the DNC made an unethical agreement with Hillary Clinton’s campaign during the lead-up to the 2016 election—skewing the primary in her favor in exchange for money to keep the indebted party afloat. In excerpts of her new book, Brazile writes that Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook struck a joint fundraising agreement with the DNC back in August 2015—nearly a year before Hillary Clinton officially had the party’s nomination. Under the agreement, the Clinton campaign would raise money for the party, and in exchange, Clinton would control the party’s finances and strategy, including making all final decisions about party staff members and the party’s communications director. Brazile writes, “If the fight had been fair, one campaign would not have control of the party before the voters had decided which one they wanted to lead. This was not a criminal act, but as I saw it, it compromised the party’s integrity.”
