Inside Hillary Clintons Secret Takeover of the DNC

Before I called Bernie Sanders, I lit a candle in my living room and put on some gospel music. I wanted to center myself for what I knew would be an emotional phone call.

I had promised Bernie when I took the helm of the Democratic National Committee after the convention that I would get to the bottom of whether Hillary Clinton’s team had rigged the nomination process, as a cache of emails stolen by Russian hackers and posted online had suggested. I’d had my suspicions from the moment I walked in the door of the DNC a month or so earlier, based on the leaked emails. But who knew if some of them might have been forged? I needed to have solid proof, and so did Bernie.

So I followed the money. My predecessor, Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, had not been the most active chair in fundraising at a time when President Barack Obama’s neglect had left the party in significant debt. As Hillary’s campaign gained momentum, she resolved the party’s debt and put it on a starvation diet. It had become dependent on her campaign for survival, for which she expected to wield control of its operations.

Debbie was not a good manager. 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. How much control Brooklyn had and for how long was still something I had been trying to uncover for the last few weeks.

By September 7, the day I called Bernie, I had found my proof and it broke my heart.


TLDR it's an article by Donna Brazile, interim DNC chair July 2016 - Feb 2017. She reveals that in August 2015 the DNC was ***** poor and, under her predecessor Debbie Wasserman Schultz, signed a finance agreement which made it almost entirely financially dependent on the Clinton campaign, as well as giving the campaign veto power over virtually all decisions. The DNC functioned in this way through the entire 2016 primary season. Brazile discovered this secret agreement after she took over and informed Bernie about it, but by that point the general election was in full swing and they both wanted Hillary to beat Trump. She also writes that she didn't find any evidence of 'skewed decisions' by the DNC, but that "If the fight had been fair, one campaign would not have control of the party before the voters had decided which one they wanted to lead."
