"… there is no such thing as nothing."

Didn’t Feel The Bern? It Was Because Of Hillary.

There are probably plenty of reasons to dislike Donna Brazile, the twice-former interim DNC Chair – not the least of which was the discovery that, following a WikiLeaks email dump, she’d been sharing debate questions with Hillary, and subsequent to a second release of the tranche, she resigned in shame from her position at CNN as a political commentator/pundit.

Perhaps she was trying to redeem herself, or, maybe she was trying to hold a light illuminating the damning evidence of HRC’s unethical behavior and corruption (though not illegal), or maybe she was hoping to drive another nail into Hillary’s political coffin, or “throw some others under the bus,” and even if it was a cathartic political “kiss and tell,” her motivation for what she wrote is not the question.

It is ~what~ she wrote in her book “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns that Put Donald Trump in the White House” that tells the story.

She discovered that because of the party’s fiscal indebtedness, a backroom deal had been struck with Hillary and the DNC in August 2015, just four months after Hillary announced her candidacy and nearly a year before she officially had the party’s nomination.

Donna found a Joint Fund-Raising Agreement document between the DNC, the Hillary Victory Fund, and Hillary for America which had been signed by DNC CEO Amy Dacey, and HRC’s political strategist Robby Mook [Hillary’s Campaign Manager], with a copy sent to Marc Elias, a nationally-recognized expert attorney in campaign finance law [General Counsel for Hillary’s campaign], which 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 – a classic quid pro quo, though again, not illegal.

Unethical?

Yes, very.

Illegal?

No.

The document stated that Hillary’s campaign had the right of refusal of who would be the party Communications Director, and that it would make final decisions on all the other staff. (Classic micromanagement.) The document also detailed that the DNC also was required to consult with HRC’s campaign about all other staffing, budgeting, data, analytics, and mailings. (More micromanagement.)

Donna Brazile wrote that she’d been curious why, as DNC Chair, she’d been hampered from doing things normally associated with the position, unless every little thing went through HRC’s campaign HQ.

That was the first clue.

When she discovered the JFRA, she then called Bernie to tell him that she’d found Hillary’s Joint Fund-Raising Agreement, and when he asked her about Hillary’s chances of winning, she wrote that, she told him that she “did not trust the polls,” and that after having “visited states around the country,” she “found a lack of enthusiasm for her everywhere.”

Donna Brazile didn’t state whose idea the JFRA agreement was.

It could have originated from the DNC, it could have originated from Hillary.

She didn’t say.

She just detailed what she found, and what she did.

So, it wasn’t the DNC, per se, that screwed Bernie.

It was Hillary.
