DROPPED: Donna Brazile Out at CNN Over Leaked Debate Questions

Republicans and Democrats sparred Sunday, Aug. 28, over whether Hillary Clinton crossed ethical lines during her tenure as secretary of state by talking with people outside the government who had contributed to her family's philanthropy foundation.

Something about feeding questions to a candidate, pre-townhall.

Dirty, right?

Or just another day in the Clinton Crime Family universe.

CNN says it is “completely uncomfortable” with hacked emails showing former contributor and interim DNC chair Donna Brazile sharing questions with the Clinton campaign before a debate and a town hall during the Democratic primary, and has accepted her resignation.

Hacked emails posted by WikiLeaks show Brazile, whose CNN contract was suspended when she became interim DNC chair over the summer, sharing with the Clinton campaign a question that would be posed to Hillary Clinton before the March CNN Democratic debate in Flint, and sharing with the campaign a possible question prior to a CNN town hall also in March.


Brazile turned in her resignation on October 14th, and it was accepted. The CNN brass, however, are framing it to appear that her role as head of the DNC (she took over in the interim, after disgraced Debbie Wasserman-Schultz was forced to step down) was the impetus.

“On October 14th, CNN accepted Donna Brazile’s resignation as a CNN contributor. (Her deal had previously been suspended in July when she became the interim head of the DNC.) CNN never gave Brazile access to any questions, prep material, attendee list, background information or meetings in advance of a town hall or debate. We are completely uncomfortable with what we have learned about her interactions with the Clinton campaign while she was a CNN contributor,” Pratapas said.

They may be entirely on the up and up. The relationship between Brazile and CNN may be all about her DNC role, but it seems a little too convenient, and it’s always wise, given the history, to question anything surrounding the Clintons.

A CNN employee, speaking on background, suggested Brazile may have met the woman who was supposed to pose the question about lead poisoning during a service event planned the day before the debate.

As for the town hall event, a follow up email from Brazile posted by WikiLeaks on Monday and other emails obtained by POLITICO seem to point to Roland Martin, a TV One host who was co-moderating the Town Hall, as the source of the questions.


Just more Clinton shenanigans from Clinton associates. There was no way they were going to allow for Hillary to show up on that stage and be caught off guard.

Which begs the question: If she has to go to these lengths to make herself look better than Donald Trump, how bad of a candidate is she?
