Donna Brazile’s Curious Account of the 2016 Election

The former DNC chair seems eager to jump on the Bernie Sanders bandwagon, but her claims of ignorance about party favoritism toward Hillary Clinton don’t add up.

(The part about Howard Dean is crap, but the rest is good)

The DNC owes Bernie Sanders and all Dems an apology

It turns out, according to a shocking new book by former Democratic National Committee interim Chairwoman Donna Brazile, that the fix was in all along. The DNC had a secret deal with the Clinton campaign that made a mockery of the notion that the national party organization should be neutral in presidential primaries.

It also turns out that from the day that Donald Trump was elected until now, the DNC has been guilty of gross negligence and incompetence that has shortchanged Democrats in every state and left the DNC lagging pathetically behind the Republican National Committee at one of the most important political moments in decades.

The DNC owes Bernie Sanders and his supporters an apology if it signed a secret deal in 2015 that sought to fix the 2016 nominating process.

The DNC owes every Democrat and party candidates in every state an apology for failing to mobilize Democrats and better support Democratic candidates during an epic political struggle that will have gigantic impact on the nation after the 2018 midterm elections.

Whatever the DNC does in the coming months, a wave of small progressive donors and large donors from Hollywood who support enlightened candidates and causes should engage in massive fundraising and organizing to elect Democrats — especially the highly regarded Democratic nominee to win the open Senate seat in Alabama, Doug Jones, against the horrifically far-right extremist, GOP nominee Roy Moore.

..

he DNC has lagged light years behind the Republican National Committee in fundraising, in cash on hand and in impact on national politics.

By contrast, the Sanders-affiliated group, Our Revolution, has been mobilizing grass-roots workers and small-donor fundraising behind progressive causes and candidates.

Our Revolution is focused, principled and fighting trim, while the DNC is backward, incompetent and largely irrelevant in the great battle unfolding in the U.S. between the dark politics of President Trump and Americans working to bring about a post-Trump nation.

For this, the DNC owes every Democrat across the nation a sweeping, comprehensive and humble apology.

Stopped by the other place to see that the top diary was calling us all salty. At least the always admirable TomP has a piece high up on there as well.

Well, here’s what some of the squirrels are scampering about related to TomP’s diary.

To those who keep claiming that Bernie signed up for the JFV, the difference is that he signed up for mutual fundraising, but the Clinton agreement already had the lock and key to the account, thus had more control over the DNC and the JVF. Bernie fortunately never needed the fund. But just think, what if Bernie had been the nominee? Clinton may have tried to savage his campaign too.

Ugly.

Oh, that’s not all on this fabulous TBT for Brazile and the DNC:

Brazile’s attack on Obama for choosing the worthless DWS and neglecting the DNC and the national party is certainly noteworthy also.

FYI, Paula Swerengen is on TYT tonight between 6-9 PDT.

Justice Democrat is Alison Hartson will be running in the Dem primary against Feinstein. Hartson is the former Director of TYT Wolf-PAC. Cenk will be an advisor on the campaign.

Donna Brazile indicated she might appear on Tim Black’s show soon. Tim is taking audience questions already.

Wow.

Didn’t Tim Black basically get hounded off TOP? The winds are surely changing.

She ‘supposedly’ comes clean to sell her book! She has a lot more to tell than something we all knew months ago.

I lost TOTAL respect for her when her CNN issue came to light, so I don’t trust her either.

Tim Black certainly has a lot to talk a lot about:

Live!

Benny

So far of the things…Tim came up (from crowdsourcing) with more than 6

1) Hilbots should know the Dem Party is corrupt
2) Hilbots should know Clinton was not a good candidate
3) Hilbots should know not likely Russia threw the election to Trump
4) Hilbots should know that the Russians did not make black people care about cops shooting black people (BLM)
5) Hilbots should know that her campaign used the funds siphoned from state parties to pay for the Steele dossier
6) Hilbots should know that Bernie Sanders would have won the election

Meantime, this lede got buried. Not one story at the Orange house today.

In an interview on “The Daily Show,” Clinton also dismissed any parallels between her campaign’s use of opposition research and Russian election interference that may have benefited Trump.

“I think most serious people understand that,” Clinton said in a clip of an interview with host Trevor Noah that was to air later Wednesday night. “It was research that started (with) a Republican donor during the primary, and when Trump got the nomination for the Republican Party, the people doing it came to my campaign lawyer.”

Clinton defended the approach that her campaign lawyer, Marc Elias, took to the work of Fusion GPS, a research firm that compiled a dossier about Trump before recruiting former British spy Christopher Steele to conduct more research.

Fusion’s work was initially paid for by the Free Beacon, a conservative news site.

I saw about 15 seconds of her appearance on TDS which was enough to convince me that Noah basically played HC public relations director (and defense lawyer?) for her with that interview. TDS has fallen so far. 🙁

The Real News also interviewed Tulsi. She says she’d heard rumblings of some of the issues, particularly about the JFV.

What is Brazile’s game here? Is there something even more explosive and illegal going to be revealed about $hrill soon? Is that why Donna is covering her arse? As you all know from LD’s wonderful BNR, I worked the FL Sanders campaign. I had a front row seat to all the scheming and machinations going on between the Clintonistas and DWS. It was pretty sickening, too. Bernie would have won the White House; the Senate would have changed hands; the House would have had more good guys win than crazy Repukes! T and R, humphrey!! Thanks.

Thank you Humphrey!!

I saw someone today suggest that maybe Brazile was a “mole” in the party for Russia.

Some people have lost their damn minds!
