While out promoting her new book — Donna Brazile has been throwing endless amounts of shade at her own party, this time calling the Clinton campaign a “cult.”
Speaking to Morning Joe on MSNBC, Brazile was asked why the Democratic Party lost the election and if it was just “arrogance” at the end of the day.
“Yes, Joe. It was a cult. I felt like it was a cult. You could not penetrate them,’” Brazile explained. “I mean, I am a grassroots organizer. I know street politics better than I know ‘suite politics.’”
Brazile added that she “cannot help a candidate Joe, if I don’t have the resources. If I cannot spend the resources that the party is raising because there is a blind agreement with a campaign.”
Among the shocking allegations made in Brazile’s new book, Hacks, is that the Clinton campaign had taken over Democratic National Committee leadership long before she was the nominee.
“As Hillary’s campaign gained momentum, she resolved the party’s debt and put it on a starvation diet,” Brazile wrote. “It had become dependent on her campaign for survival, for which she expected to wield control of its operations.”
Brazile also too aim at the former DNC chairwoman, Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
“Debbie was not a good manager,” Brazile asserts in the book. “She hadn’t been very interested in controlling the party—she let Clinton’s headquarters in Brooklyn do as it desired so she didn’t have to inform the party officers how bad the situation was.”
Hacks is dedicated to slain DNC staffer Seth Rich, who many believe may have been the source of the earth shattering party emails that were leaked to WikiLeaks during the primaries. Brazile wrote that his death continues to “haunt” her and lead to her increasing her own personal security.
Rich was shot in the back near his home around 4:19 a.m. on July 10, 2016. Twelve days later, WikiLeaks would release the first of the leaked emails from the DNC — which would ultimately reveal that Brazile had leaked debate questions to Hillary Clinton during the primaries and lead to the resignation of Wasserman-Schultz.
