CNN Issues HARSH Statement to DNC’s Donna Brazile for Leaking Debate Questions

Oh boy… the Dems are off to a terrible start this week. Hillary Clinton is up to her neck in her email scandal and will probably lose the election to Donald Trump now. Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin are singing like canaries to the feds on that scandal to save their own hides. And now… CNN just fired Donna Brazile over the WikiLeaks email that showed how she shared questions with Hillary Clinton before a CNN Town Hall. They severed all ties with her. I think the reopening of the Clinton investigation pushed this over the edge.

Donna Brazile preemptively announced on Twitter that she was leaving CNN. That’s not all… she’s praying to God over all this. During a series of tweets, she wrote “Please God, let this end soon.” Now, she knows how all of us feel as well.

From Politico:

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.

In a statement, CNN spokeswoman Lauren Pratapas said that on Oct. 14, the network accepted Brazile’s resignation.

“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.

On Monday, a new email released by WikiLeaks shows Brazile informing the Clinton campaign that the March 6th CNN Democratic debate would feature a question from a Flint resident suffering from the city’s water crisis. A CNN source told Mediaite on background that Brazile was not provided the debate question by the network, saying that Brazile was spotted chatting with the woman at an earlier event in which CNN personalities provided Flint residents with free water.

So, Brazille has been caught more than once flowing questions to Clinton before an event. What a peach. 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. Why am I not surprised.
