Wikileaks exposed it during the 2016 election, but former CNN contributor and chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee Donna Brazile refused for months to admit that she gave Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign debate questions during the primaries. Cortney has written about the stubbornness of the Democratic operative for weeks as well. Well, now, she admits that she used her position at the news network to slip the Clinton campaign debate questions. The truth shall set you free (via Washington Examiner):
For months, Brazile has avoided confirming that hacked emails from the campaign showed her forwarding the questions, which were asked at separate debates. But in a new essay for Time magazine looking back on the hackings, she said it was true.
"[I]n October, a subsequent release of emails revealed that among the many things I did in my role as a Democratic operative and [Democratic National Committee] Vice Chair prior to assuming the interim D.N.C. Chair position was to share potential town hall topics with the Clinton campaign," she said.
