Donna Brazile Claims She's Being 'Persecuted' When Megyn Kelly Brings Up WikiLeaks Email

Following Wednesday night's debate in Las Vegas, Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly questioned CNN contributor Donna Brazile about this WikiLeaks email she sent to the Hillary Clinton campaign the day before a CNN town hall debate when she was the vice DNC chair. 

Clearly, Brazile is bragging how she gets debate questions in advance and put it upon herself to forward at least one to the Clinton campaign. A more recently unearthed email finds that the question Brazile sent to Clinton's campaign was regarding the death penalty. It appears to be word-for-word.

When Kelly asked Brazile who forwarded her those questions, Brazile refused to answer.

"As a Christian woman, I understand persecution, but I will not sit here and be persecuted" she said.

In in the interview, Brazile and Kelly tried to stay civil, telling one another they "respect" each other, yet Kelly was frustrated by her guest's constant pivots. The anchor tried again: Who gave you those emails?

"I am not going to try to validate falsified information," Brazile insisted. "CNN has never provided me with questions. A lot of those emails I would not give them the time of day."

"This has not been verified," she added. 

For answers, Brazile invited Kelly to "go to Russia."
