Brazile wrote in her new book, Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns that Put Donald Trump in the White House, that shortly after she took the DNC job in late July 2016, she discovered the Clinton campaign had signed an agreement to help keep the DNC financially alfoat, a deal in "which [Clinton] expected to wield control of its operations". Brazile, who stepped down from her interim post in 2016 amid revelations that she had provided Clinton with CNN debate topics ahead of time, was recently named to the DNC's Rules & Bylaws committee, which has sway over the party's primary procedures.
In an op-ed for Politico, the former chairwoman recalled investigating the matter for Bernie Sanders during the 2016 election season, and was shocked when she found out that Clinton's campaign had been paying off the DNC's debts for the past several months.
'Obama left the party $24 million in debt-$15 million in bank debt and more than $8 million owed to vendors after the 2012 campaign and had been paying that off very slowly.
"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".
"Wait", I said. "That victory fund was supposed to be for whoever was the nominee, and the state party races". The catch was that former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the entire apparatus of the DNC was at the control of the Clinton Campaign, serving as an extension of it under the false pretense of neutrality.
Brazile has written a tell-all article about the dysfunction and mismanagement she uncovered at the organization she was brought in to run after hacked emails revealed efforts by party insiders to tilt the scales toward Clinton.More news: Facebook, Twitter, Google face aggressive questioning at Senate hearing

Mrs. McDaniel was referring to Ms. Brazile's piece in Thursday's Politico, in which she described the state the party was in when she took over.
"When I hung up the call to Bernie, I started to cry, not out of guilt, but out of anger", Brazile wrote.
"(Schultz) let Clinton's headquarters in Brooklyn do as it desired", Brazile wrote.
He continued, "One of my goals here as DNC chair is to make sure that the nominating process for 2020 is a process that is totally fair and transparent for everybody".
Hot Air suggests that Brazile is being a little coy about her depiction of herself as uncovering this corruption only when she took over the DNC.
In an interview with CNBC, Mr Perez said, "We're moving forward", when asked about the Ms Brazile's allegations. She said that effectively turned the party's financial, strategy and staffing decisions over to the Clinton team. "I really want to say he's being tested, and the real answer to whether or not he passes that test is whether or not Bernie Sanders' representatives in these negotiations walk away satisfied".
