Asked if DNC system was rigged in Clinton's favor, Warren says 'yes'

Early Friday morning, the president tweeted that "everybody is asking" why the DOJ is not "looking into all of the dishonesty" in the Democratic party, and said "people are angry".

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) said Thursday that she believes the 2016 Democratic primary was rigged in former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's favor.

But Clinton's campaign also negotiated a side deal, first reported by NBC News on Friday night, that gave it influence over staffing and other decisions at the DNC during the primary, but with the stipulation that it only affect preparations for the general election and that other candidates could strike a similar deal.

In the end, though, Brazile couldn't bring herself to give Clinton the boot, even though she thought Clinton was a honest but flawed candidate whose campaign reeked with "the odor of failure".

Sanders (I-Vt.). It centers on a fundraising agreement that Clinton's campaign signed with the DNC that essentially kept the committee afloat and allowed her aides to control the party. Bernie Sanders' allegations that the party had rigged its primary.

The Washington Post published the searing details after obtaining an advance copy of Brazile's book, which will be released Tuesday, November 7.

Donna Brazile speaks during the 2016 Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

Brazile thought they held the most appeal to working class voters and could defeat Trump.

But Brazile never carried out the plan.

But "I thought of Hillary, and all the women in the country who were so proud of and excited about her". "I could not do this to them".

As for Clinton's campaign, it was poorly run and overconfident, taking minority votes for granted and putting out "stiff" and "stupid" messages, Brazile said.

Brazile also writes, according to the Post review, that she wanted to replace Clinton and Vice Presidential Nominee Sen.

In an expert of her book, Brazile alleged that before Clinton became the Democratic nominee, her campaign signed the joint fundraising agreement with the DNC and HVF, in which her campaign would finance the DNC in exchange for oversight from the Clinton campaign.

Still, the incident underscores Brazile's disillusionment with the Clinton campaign - a stunning and explosive break for a veteran of the party's establishment who had been a superdelegate for Clinton.
