It began with this story: A Wikileaks leaked email, from Donna Brazile to the Clinton campaign, started with the subject line “From time to time I get the questions in advance.” Brazile, then vice chair of the DNC and a CNN and ABC contributor, included a question that was later asked of Hillary Clinton at a subsequent CNN “town hall,” word for word.
CNN anchor Jake Tapper, probably the closest thing to a fair and ethical journalist that exists in the current broadcast media, told an interviewer regarding the episode in part,
It’s a very, very troubling… look, I have tremendous regard for Donna Brazile. She’s a good person and a nice person and I like her a lot but whatever took place here… and I know I had nothing to do with it… and I know CNN, we were so closely guarding our documents… they weren’t emailed around….It’s horrifying. Journalistically it’s horrifying and I’m sure it will have an impact on partnering with this organization in the future and I’m sure it will have an effect on… Donna Brazile is no longer with CNN because she’s with the DNC right now, but I’m sure it will have some impact on Donna Brazille.,,People at CNN take this very, very seriously and to have somebody who does not take it seriously and to have us partner with that person and then they do something completely unethical and share it with Donna Brazile who then shares it with the Clinton campaign… it’s horrifying and very, very upsetting and I can’t condemn it any more than… I condemn it in no uncertain terms, it’s awful.
Democratic operatives using their chummy, insider relationships with alleged legitimate news organizations to assist their candidates with undisclosed, under the table, tips? Who wouldn’t call that awful? Well, interestingly, most of the rest of the mainstream, Hillary-recruited media, which has mostly left this story to Fox, the Daily Caller, and “conservative media” while suggesting that the e-mail from Wikileaks was somehow fake.
Enter Megyn Kelly on Fox, who was persistent in trying get Brazile to give an explanation in an interview. What she got instead was incredibly guilty-sounding evasion and Authentic Frontier Gibberish:
KELLY: You were accused — that you were accused of receiving a debate question before CNN town hall where they partnered with TV One and that — that you had this question on, on March 12th, that — that verbatim, verbatim was provided by Roland Martin to CNN the next day. How did you get that question, Donna?
BRAZILE: Well, Kelly, since I play straight up and I play straight up with you, I did not receive any questions from CNN. Let’s just be very clear.
KELLY: Where did you get it? Where did you get it?
BRAZILE: First of all, what information are you providing to me that will allow me to see what, what you’re talking about? Everybody —
KELLY: You’ve got the WikiLeaks released a March 12 Podesta e-mail showing you messaging the Clinton campaign with the exact wording of a question asked at the March 13th CNN TV One Town Hall debate.
BRAZILE: Kelly— Kelly—
KELLY: Where did you get it?
BRAZILE: You know, as a Christian woman, I understand persecution but I will not sit here and be persecuted because your information is totally false. What you’re — what you’re telling the American people.
KELLY: I’m getting it from Podesta e-mail.
BRAZILE: What — what you’re — what well, Podesta’s e- mails were stolen. So, you’re so interested in talking about stolen material.
KELLY: So, you deny it?
BRAZILE: You’re like — you’re like thief that want to bring into the night the things that you found that was in the gutter. I’m not — let me just say what I say since day one .
KELLY: Donna, CNN’s Jake Tapper.
KELLY: — came out and said this was unethical. Somebody was unethically helping the Clinton campaign. He said, “I love Donna Brazile, but this is very, very upsetting.”
BRAZILE: And I love CNN and I love Jake.
KELLY: “My understanding is that the e-mail to Donna Brazile–” This is Jake Tapper. “My understanding is that the e- mail to Donna Brazile came from either Roland Martin or someone around Roland Martin.” He said, this is very upsetting and very troubling.” That’s your own colleague at CNN. It’s not Megyn Kelly. Who gave you that question?
BRAZILE: Megyn, once, again, I’ve said it and I’ve said on the record and I’ll say on the record and I keep saying it on a record, I am not going to try to validate falsified information. I have my documents. I have my files. Thank God I have not had my personal e-mails ripped off from me and stolen and given to some criminals to come back altered. I have my records. I have my files. And as I said repeatedly, CNN in the 14 years I was associate with CNN, I have never received anything. If I had a blank piece of paper that — that would basically be the end of this conversation. I never get documents from CNN.
KELLY: Your e-mail to the Clinton camp said “Sometimes, I received the questions in advance.”
BRAZILE: Ma’am, you know — you know what .
KELLY: And CNN is saying Roland Martin gave them to you or someone at TV One and they were provided to Hillary before that town hall.
BRAZILE: Anybody — well — well, anybody who knows me and — and there are a number of your colleagues as well. They know me very well. I know how I play it. I know what I do before every debate. I know what I do before every show, even a show. I do my homework. I communicate, I talk .
KELLY: I understand.
BRAZILE: But I can just once again let you know that as far as I know, that CNN has never provided me with questions, absolutely ever. Nada. Sorry.
KELLY: But when you said — when you said that” from time to time I get the questions in advance,” what we’re you referring to? Because in that — in that e-mail, you offered the exact question that one of the moderators, Roland Martin, then proposed the next day.
BRAZILE: So, so, my — my — my reference back to you, ma’am, with all respect and I respect you greatly .
KELLY: And I respect you, too.
BRAZILE: The validity of those e-mails, if I can only tell you one thing because as you know this whole episode is under criminal investigation. But I could just tell you one thing. A lot of those e-mails, I would not give them the time of the day. I’ve seen so many doctored e- mails.
BRAZILE: I’ve seen things that come me.
KELLY: Fair enough.
Is it possible to sound more guilty or dishonest?
Brazile is now chief of the Democratic Party, a position she took over after previous leaked e-mails showed that her predecessor was effectively acting as an ally of the Clinton campaign during the nomination process, doing what she could to undermine the Sanders campaign. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz denied it, yet coincidentally joined the Clinton campaign staff the second she was sacked.
The party rigged its own nomination process. Its current head used her position at CNN to give the party’s candidate advance notice so she could pretend to give a spontaneous answer during a televised forum, thus misleading viewers and voters. Caught doing this red-handed, the Democratic official resorts to word games— “CNN has never provided me with questions,” instead of “I never passed a question on to Sec. Clinton,” which is the real issue—incoherent outraged deflection, and the most obvious guilty nonsense since Ralph Kramden stuttered, “Huminahuminahumina” to Alice on “The Honeymooners.”
The Democrats cheat, and have no compunction about cheating. Hillary Clinton cheats, and has no compunction about cheating. The Obama administration is run by and in turn enables and supports the Democrats and their candidate Hillary Clinton.
Boy, what unpatriotic, paranoid, untrusting fool any citizen would be who thinks the Democrats would be capable of trying to rig the election!
