How Hillary Clinton's 2020 hopes were ruined by Donna Brazile

How Hillary Clinton's 2020 hopes were ruined by Donna Brazile

One of the first things that Brazile talks about in her article, is the financial woes plaguing the party.

Brazile, a former campaign manager for Al Gore and adviser to President Bill Clinton, stepped in as interim head of the DNC after Rep.

The crowd of more than 4,000 welcomed Clinton with a roar of applause, and it cheered even louder when she said her days of being guarded about what she says in public "are over". Yet she has already let the cat out of the bag. The party's job is not just to elect the president, which we supported 100 percent, but also Democrats up and down the ballot. Before then, she was informed that fundraising was very successful and that the party was in fine shape.

"Wounds don't heal if you don't expose them", she said. "She told us about the hacking only minutes before the Washington Post broke the news". The agreement also gave the Clinton campaign some say over personnel.

She even writes that she considered trying to replace Clinton as the nominee over health concerns after the candidate collapsed at the 9/11 anniversary ceremony, a fact that demolishes the myth that suspicions about Clinton's condition were the sole province of conservative partisans.

Sanders officially identified as a Democrat in November 2015 when he declared his candidacy, but continues to oscillate between party classifications, and on October 24 announced his intent to run as an Independent in the 2020 presidential elections.

She says what she learned was that the DNC had made a deal with Clinton's people in August 2015 to clear up the party's debts.

American International Group Inc Sold A Little More Costco Wholesale (COST) Stock
The stock of Costco Wholesale Corporation (NASDAQ:COST) earned "Outperform" rating by RBC Capital Markets on Thursday, December 8. The California-based Invest House Ltd Liability Corp has invested 1.59% in Costco Wholesale Corporation (NASDAQ:COST).

"The remarks are the latest wrinkle in the fallout from Brazile's new book, "Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns that Put Donald Trump in the White House", which includes revelations about the Democrat Party in 2016 that have roiled some of its members". However, she at last found what she was looking for in a document called the Joint-Fund-Raising Agreement.

"The agreement - signed by Amy Dacey, the former CEO of the DNC, and Robby Mook with a copy to Marc Elias - specified that in exchange for raising money and investing in the DNC, Hillary would control the party's finances, strategy, and all the money raised". 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.

That deal was done in August 2015 almost a year before Democrats would nominate their candidate.

Many Democrats, including US Senator Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., say this proves the primary election was "rigged" for Clinton. This should be especially disturbing to those who are registered as a democrat and voted in this past election.

Is it all part of politics as usual, some voters may find themselves asking at the end of a few weeks that included an unusual burst of political drama on both sides of party lines.

During the campaign, Sanders had repeatedly charged that the DNC was working in league with the Clinton campaign to ensure her victory in the primary. She claims to have discovered that Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the DNC's former chairperson, sold the party to the highest bidder to resolve its debt of millions of dollars.

While the potential interference of Russian Federation in our election is a legitimate issue, the "Boy Who Cried Wolf" mentality of some Clinton supporters makes the meddling seem like a cartoonishly exaggerated scheme. It's very possible that Brazile is only doing this now to alienate herself from the mess that was the Democratic Party in the 2016 election.
