This is wild stuff!
Donna Brazille is apparently feeling no pain. At least not yet.
Because yesterday she came out with an epic takedown of Hillary Clinton, and today she just hit Barack Obama.
Careful Donna, you don’t want to end up on this list!
What she said about Barry
Here are the new revelations Brazille alleged against Obama, from WesternJournalism:
Former interim Democratic National Committee Chair Donna Brazile has charged former President Barack Obama with leaving the party millions of dollars in debt after his 2012 re-election campaign.
The claim emerged Thursday, when an excerpt of Brazile’s soon-to-be-released book was published in Politico Magazine.
“The Saturday morning after the convention in July, I called Gary Gensler, the chief financial officer of Hillary’s campaign. He wasted no words. He told me the Democratic Party was broke and $2 million in debt,” Brazile wrote.
She found out that Obama had “left the party $24 million in debt — $15 million in bank debt and more than $8 million owed to vendors after the 2012 campaign — and had been paying that off very slowly.”
Gensler admitted the party was completely under the mercy of Hillary Clinton’s campaign, which had paid down much of the party’s overall debt.
“Hillary for America and the Hillary Victory Fund had taken care of 80 percent of the remaining debt in 2016, about $10 million, and had placed the party on an allowance,” Brazile wrote.
Brazile, who at the time was an officer of the party, was shocked that this had seemingly been approved by then DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz without a single DNC officer knowing.
Much of the strain seems to have come from Wasserman Schultz’s decision to keep more staff around than was needed during non-election years.
“The party chair usually shrinks the staff between presidential election campaigns, but Debbie had chosen not to do that. She had stuck lots of consultants on the DNC payroll, and Obama’s consultants were being financed by the DNC, too,” Brazile wrote.
This decision had put the party in such financial straits that they were forced to rely on the Clinton campaign.
Brazile suggested that doing so put the validity of the 2016 Democrat primary into question.
When Brazile called former presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders to report her findings, she admitted that the party’s financial position had put in Clinton in the driver’s seat long before she had officially become the Democrat nominee.
“I explained that the cancer was that she had exerted this control of the party long before she became its nominee,” Brazile wrote.
