‘You’re Like a Thief’: Brazile Snaps at Megyn Kelly When Asked About WikiLeaks

screen-shot-2016-10-20-at-12-36-52-amMegyn Kelly had a major face-off with DNC chairwoman Donna Brazile tonight as the Fox host asked her tonight about the indications that Brazile helped give Hillary Clinton the advantage during the primaries.

After a contentious discussion over who is responsible for the content James O’Keefe filmed in his new video, Kelly asked her about one of the biggest relations WikiLeaks produced from their John Podesta email dump. Approximately a week ago, indications suggested that Brazile possessed a CNN debate question, which she seemingly gave to Clinton’s campaign chairman while she was still a contributor on the network.

Brazile insisted that she did not receive the question from CNN, but Kelly pressed her and noted that she must have gotten it from somewhere if she had the exact wording. From there, things got hot pretty fast:

“As a Christian woman, I understand persecution, but I will not stand here and be persecuted because your information is totally false… Podesta’s emails were stolen. You’re so interested in talking about stolen material, you’re like a thief that wants to bring into the night the things that you found in the gutter.”

Kelly pressed Brazile further on her source while noting that even CNN’s Jake Tapper condemned the leak. Brazile responded by saying she wouldn’t “validate falsified information,” and that Wikileaks might have added doctored emails into the messages they illegally lifted.
