Former interim head of the Democratic National Committee Donna Brazile appeared to again away Wednesday from a few of the most sensational claims made in her just lately launched tell-all about final 12 months’s presidential election.
In an interview on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Brazile described her e-book as a “forensic examination” of the failures of the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s presidential marketing campaign.
“I wanted to write this book to tell my story,” Brazile advised host Tucker Carlson of her memoir, referred to as “Hacks.” “I wanted the American people to see what happened.”
During a wide-ranging interview, Brazile stated she leaked questions at a Democratic major city corridor to members of Hillary Clinton’s marketing campaign as a result of she didn’t need the candidates to be “blindsided.”
“That’s the greatest spin I’ve ever heard” Carlson laughed in response. “I didn’t want them blindsided? That’s so good, you should do this for a living. That is hilarious.”
“Wikileaks sought to divide us,” Brazile responded. “These were active measures where you got to see the things I gave to Hillary. You never got a chance to see the things I gave to [Sen.] Bernie [Sanders] or [former Maryland Gov.] Martin O’Malley.”
Previously launched excerpts from Brazile’s e-book accused Clinton’s high male marketing campaign staffers of badist therapy. But on Wednesday evening, Brazile ascribed her conflicts with marketing campaign supervisor Robby Mook to “generational” variations.
“Remember, I come from the old school,” Brazile stated. “I come from the school [where] you actually knock on doors, you talk to people, you try to get their support [and] then you try to get them out on Election Day. Robby comes from a school that is a lot different … they do algorithms, they do data modeling.”
Brazile referred to as the Clinton marketing campaign “condescending and dismissive” towards her and complained that she did not have complete management of the celebration’s badets.
Another excerpt from Brazile’s e-book that has been made public accused her predecessor as DNC chair – Florida Rep. Debbie Wbaderman Schultz – of indulging in expensive perks, together with a “chief of staff and a body woman,” even because the celebration wrestled with a money crunch that left it depending on the Clinton marketing campaign.
But on Wednesday, Brazile defended Wbaderman Schultz’s dealing with of the DNC’s hacking that resulted within the launch of a trove of emails by Wikileaks final summer time.
“When [the hack] was brought to her attention, she immediately reached out to get cybersecurity experts on board … along with our cyber attorney, they provided the FBI with everything that they requested.”
When Carlson pressed her on why the DNC didn’t flip over its servers to the FBI, Brazile answered, “we were still running a party,” including that the celebration spent “over $60,000” to help the hacking investigation.
“After I received my FBI briefing in August, do you know what I wanted to do?” Brazile asked Carlson. “I wished to go over to the Pentagon. I didn’t wish to return to the DNC. I wished someone to place yellow tape across the DNC. I used to be scared. We have been beneath badault.”
