Donna Brazile’s explosive book revealing how the Clintons rigged the Democrat primary has shaken up Washington.
But there is one revelation that has everyone on edge.
In her book, Brazile reveals that she had feared for her life after one development involving the Clintons.
Brazile took over as Chairwoman of the Democrat National Committee after Debbie Wasserman Schultz was forced out when WikiLeaks released emails showing the national party colluded with the Clintons to rig the primary against Bernie Sanders.
She wrote that in the aftermath of taking over, she feared for her life.
Brazile was so paranoid about snipers that she kept her blinds shut and installed security cameras in her home.
The Washington Post reports:
“A veteran operative and television pundit who had long served as DNC’s vice chair, Brazile abruptly and, she writes, reluctantly took over in July 2016 for chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. The Florida congresswoman was ousted from the DNC on the eve of the party convention after WikiLeaks released stolen emails among her and her advisers that showed favoritism for Clinton during the competitive primaries.
Brazile describes her mounting anxiety about Russia’s theft of emails and other data from DNC servers, the slow process of discovering the full extent of the cyberattacks and the personal fallout. She likens the feeling to having rats in your basement: “You take measures to get rid of them, but knowing they are there, or have been there, means you never feel truly at peace.”
Brazile writes that she was haunted by the still-unsolved murder of DNC data staffer Seth Rich and feared for her own life, shutting the blinds to her office window so snipers could not see her and installing surveillance cameras at her home. She wonders whether Russians had placed a listening device in plants in the DNC executive suite.”
Brazile also wrote in her book that she considered using a loophole in the Democrat National Committee rules to replace Clinton with Joe Biden after she collapsed during a 9/11 memorial event and lied about her health.
The Washington Post also reports:
“In an explosive new memoir, Brazile details widespread dysfunction and dissension throughout the Democratic Party, including secret deliberations over using her powers as interim DNC chair to initiate the process of removing Clinton and running mate Sen. Tim Kaine (Va.) from the ticket after Clinton’s Sept. 11, 2016, collapse in New York City.
Brazile writes that she considered a dozen combinations to replace the nominees and settled on Biden and Sen. Cory Booker (N.J.), the duo she felt most certain would win over enough working-class voters to defeat Republican Donald Trump. But then, she writes, “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.”
Do you think Brazile had good reason to fear for her life?
