Democratic National Committee chairwoman Donna Brazile complained during an interview on Wednesday that she is being “persecuted” by being asked questions about leaking a town hall question to the Clinton campaign.

And during the interview, conducted on Fox News after the presidential debate, Brazile said that her interviewer, Megyn Kelly, was “like a thief” because her questions cited emails that were stolen from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta and released by Wikileaks.
Kelly grilled Brazile, who was a CNN and ABC News contributor prior to taking over the DNC in July, about an email revealed by Wikileaks showing her providing a tip about a March 13 town hall question to the Clinton campaign.
“Sometimes I get the questions in advance,” Brazile wrote in a March 12 email to Clinton’s communications director, Jennifer Palmieri.
The question, which was about the death penalty, was asked of Clinton by Roland Martin, a host with TV One, which co-hosted the debate with CNN.
“I did not receive any questions from CNN, let’s just be very clear,” a shaky Brazile told Kelly.
“Where did you get it?” the host shot back.
“First of all what information are you providing to me that will let me see what you are talking about?” said Brazile.
She grew more defensive.
“As a Christian woman I understand persecution, but I will not sit here and be persecuted because your information is totally false,” the operative said.
“Podesta’s emails were stolen. You’re like the thief that what’s to bring into the night what you found in the gutter,” she continued.
