DNC Chair Tom Perez Reacts to Donna Brazile: Idea Hillary Was ‘Incapacitated’ Is ‘Ludicrous’

DNC Chair Tom Perez spoke out today about the claims being made by former DNC chair Donna Brazile and the revelation she considered replacing Hillary Clinton on the ticket with Joe Biden after her fainting spell.

Perez told Chuck Todd that he has “great respect” for Brazile, but said, “The charge that Hillary Clinton was somehow incapacitated is, quite frankly, ludicrous.”

Todd asked if, as Team Clinton suggested, Brazile fell for Russian propaganda. Perez said, “I don’t know what Donna Brazile fell for.”

“Don’t you owe the Sanders campaign an investigation?” Todd asked. “I mean, Donna Brazile put that charge out. Don’t you and Keith Ellison––shouldn’t you guys look back and see if her charges are true?”

“I totally agree, Chuck,” Perez responded, “with the notion that the DNC fell short during critical moments… We have to do better.”
