Hillary Clinton Rejects Donna Brazile’s ‘Rigging’ Allegations: ‘That Just Wasn’t the Case’

Hillary Clinton denied Donna Brazile’s claims that her campaign took over the 2016 Democratic primary and “rigged” the process against Bernie Sanders.

Clinton spoke to Seth Meyers last night, who asked about the charges that Clinton’s inner circle assumed control of the Democratic National Committee’s resources while undermining her 2016 competition. Even though Brazile described the situation as “rigged” in her new book, the former DNC chairwoman has since tried to distance herself from that characterization, and Clinton and Meyers noted that as they approached the subject.

“I didn’t know what she was referring to because, as has now come out, that just wasn’t the case,” said Clinton. She then pivoted to the DNC’s recent activities by talking about Democrat gubernatorial wins in Virginia and New Jersey.

Clinton went on to praise the DNC’s efforts to build up grassroots support and party infrastructure, and she also expressed her concerns about President Trump’s approach to foreign policy and lack of legislative accomplishments.

Brazile insists that Clinton’s team bullied her around during the election, though the current DNC leadership and Clinton’s former allies have pushed back on Brazile’s claims.
