First, the Staff Writer (Jake Johnson) should be completely ashamed of himself, and forcefully called out, for putting forth such PR blather, without crucial context – to such a degree that it exposes the entire article as a MSM, Talking Point, Pre-Book Tour, Propaganda piece – instead of straightforward Truth regarding someone who was among the top of the DNC corruption, and wholly involved as an eager participant in the nationwide collusion, as follows:
It was a stunning sign of how politically tone-deaf the Democratic Party has become and it proves that the party has zero interest in operating with integrity. Instead, the fact that Brazile is emailing me shows that the DNC is as cronyist and elitist as the GOP.
To refresh our collective memory, Brazile is a perfect example of the DNC’s insider clique and its complete disrespect for the democratic process. When Wikileaks dumped a bunch of emails from DNC insiders it revealed that Brazile had passed on questions to the Hillary Clinton campaign to give her an edge in debates against Bernie Sanders during the presidential primaries. When the emails were first dumped, Brazile denied she had cheated. But it’s worse than that. She didn’t just deny it, she went on a righteous rant. “I did not receive any questions from CNN,” she said in a Fox News interview last October. “As a Christian woman I understand persecution, but I will not stand here and be persecuted because your information is totally false.” Stop and think about . . . that sort of bald-faced (worldwide television) Lie [for a moment.]”
The DNC replaced Wasserman Schultz with Brazile, even though they were both clearly implicated in the allegations of a rigged DNC primary. In the months when she was interim DNC chair, Brazile went on totally lying about her transgressions until she finally admitted to doing it, but stated that she felt no remorse. In November, shortly after the election she confessed to the passing on of questions to the Clinton camp, but refused to apologize: “My conscience — as an activist, a strategist — is very clear,” she said in an interview with talk-radio host Joe Madison.
So first she lied [In The Name of Jesus Christ], then she justified her decision to show bias towards the Clinton camp. But mostly she blamed the Russians.
After months of lying and justifying, eventually Brazile caved and she issued an [infuriating, boilerplate] apology in March of 2017. If you haven’t read it, I’d urge you to take another look at her apology, because the piece is really more about Russia being at fault than her. And in the end, she still insists that the DNC was fair to Sanders, a story that simply doesn’t hold up to scrutiny.
[For further emphasis], we learned back in June that the DNC is still paying Brazile months after her position was formally turned over (following an insider coup against Keith Ellison) to Tom Perez.
Quote: “Politicians need to have ‘both a public and a private’ negotiating position.” Really? How could the public ever be truly informed in such an environment? Yet, that’s the main point – isn’t it?
