Geraldo: Brazile's Revelations Are 'Nail in the Coffin' for the Clinton Era

Elizabeth Warren thinks the 2016 primary was rigged in Hillary Clinton's favor

In an excerpt of her book, published this week in Politico, Brazile writes of a fundraising deal that she says allowed Clinton's campaign to influence the party's finances before she won the nomination. However, the DNC's signing of the Sanders JFA two months after selling out to Hillary raises some questions about whether Sanders and his backers might have a civil case as well as a political argument that the DNC defrauded them. It reflected simmering tensions between establishment and insurgent wings that will set the party's future course on issues from its platform to the primary schedule and use of superdelegates - party leaders and elected officials who get a say in the nomination - in the 2020 presidential race.

Brazile roiled the political world on Thursday when she published excerpts in Politico of her upcoming book that detailed a 2015 money deal between the Clinton campaign and the DNC that made winning the party's presidential nomination almost impossible for any other Democratic candidate.

The agreement established rules and guidance around the separate joint fundraising agreement Clinton's campaign signed with the DNC.

The memo stated the arrangement concerned the general election, not the primary season, and that it wasn't exclusive to the Clinton campaign - meaning it left the door open to other candidates to make similar arrangements.

Asked if he would fire Sessions if the DOJ doesn't focus its investigative powers on Democrats, Trump said, "I don't know". "I become chair, and I tried writing a check for something that I raised money for, and I needed sign-off from Brooklyn".

Bernie Sanders' 2016 campaign also signed its own joint fundraising agreement with the DNC.

The Washington Post, which obtained an advanced copy of her memoir, reported that Brazile wrote that Clinton's campaign was "anemic" and had taken on "the odor of failure".

Brazile has claimed in her new book that she considered replacing Hillary Clinton with then-Vice President Joe Biden as the party's nominee, mere weeks before Election Day.

When Brazile took over as interim chair following the scandal, she said that Democrats were "victims of a cybercrime led by thugs".

The group of staffers also accused Brazile of buying into "false Russian-fueled propaganda, spread by both the Russians and our opponent, about our candidate's health".

The RealClearPolitics polls average shows Northam now leading by 3 percentage points, essentially a dead heat, after leading by almost 7 points just weeks ago. "Go to hell", Brazile told ABC on Sunday. "But honestly, they should be looking at the Democrats". "This is just the latest case of no message, no organization, no leadership".

Current DNC Chairman Tom Perez on Sunday's "Meet The Press" called Brazile's claims "ludicrous". "I am more committed than ever before to restoring voters' faith in our democratic process because even the perception of impartiality or an unfair advantage undermines our ability to win".

'Nothing in this agreement shall be construed to violate the DNC's obligation of impartiality and neutrality through the Nominating process.
