Donna Brazile, the interim chair of the Democratic National Committee, began providing town hall and debate questions to the Clinton campaign earlier than previously known, emails released by WikiLeaks on Monday show.
The email threads also show that Brazile, a former CNN contributor, revealed to the Clinton campaign the name of the person who provided her with a question that was asked of Clinton at a March 13 town hall co-hosted by CNN and TV One. Brazile also shared a question from a debate hosted by CNN a week earlier.
On Monday the anti-secrecy group published a March 5 email showing Brazile tipping off Podesta and Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri about a question that an audience member would ask a day later during a debate against rival Bernie Sanders.
CNN had by then had enough. They decided to cut all ties with Interim Democratic Party Chairwoman Donna Brazile, following revelations that she shared at least two questions with Hillary Clinton’s campaign in advance of CNN-hosted Democratic debates and town hall broadcasts.
‘We are completely uncomfortable with what we have learned about her interactions with the Clinton campaign while she was a CNN contributor,’ the network’s PR department said in a statement.
Brazile must have seen this coming as she tweeted Sunday night…
Please God, let this end soon
