Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham Clinton5 takeaways from the Virginia governor’s race Dems mull huge adjustments after Brazile bombshell Dem ousts incumbent Republican in Manchester mayoral race MORE on Wednesday dismissed claims made by former Democratic National Committee interim chairwoman Donna Brazile concerning the celebration’s major, saying the way in which she described the competition “just wasn’t the case.”
“I didn’t know what she was referring to because, as has now come out, that just wasn’t the case,” Clinton stated throughout an look on NBC’s “Late Night with Seth Meyers.”
“But the current DNC leadership really invested heavily in Virginia and New Jersey and other places.”
Clinton’s feedback come after Brazile stirred controversy final week when an excerpt from her new guide appeared to recommend that the Democratic major was rigged in Clinton’s favor.
Brazile cited a fundraising settlement between the Clinton marketing campaign, Clinton’s joint fundraising committee, and the DNC, that stated the marketing campaign would “control the party’s finances, strategy, and all the money raised.” The settlement, in accordance with Brazile, was signed in August of 2015, practically a yr earlier than Clinton secured the nomination.
“The funding arrangement with HFA and the victory fund agreement was not illegal, but it sure looked unethical,” Brazile wrote within the excerpt printed in Politico.
“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. This was not a criminal act, but as I saw it, it compromised the party’s integrity.”
Former Clinton workers members pushed again on Brazile’s revelations final week, saying they “don’t acknowledge the marketing campaign she portrays within the guide.”
But the previous interim DNC chairwoman appeared to backtrack her claims on Sunday, telling ABC’s “This Week” that she doesn’t consider the Party’s major was rigged.
“I found no evidence, none, whatsoever,” Brazile instructed George Stephanopoulos on “This Week” when requested about accusations that the first course of was rigged in Clinton’s favor.
“The solely factor I discovered, which I stated, I discovered the most cancers, however I’m not killing the affected person, was this memorandum that prevented the DNC from operating its personal operation.”
