Clinton’s glaring omission

Peter Hasson of the Daily Caller highlights one key story you won’t read in Hillary Clinton’s campaign memoir.

Hillary Clinton’s 450-page book attempting to excuse her failed 2016 presidential campaign, “What Happened,” conveniently ignores one of the election’s biggest scandals: then-Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile’s leaking of debate questions to Clinton during the Democratic primary — a clear-cut example of DNC officials rigging the primary in favor of Clinton.

The fact that Brazile leaked questions to Clinton before two different primary debates only came out when WikiLeaks published stolen emails from Clinton campaign chair John Podesta in October. But Clinton writes that revelation out of history in her book, which was reviewed by The Daily Caller. She dismisses reporting about the leaked emails as the media inventing a story out of nothing.

“In the end, though, most of John’s emails were . . . boring,” she claims. …

… But the truth is far different from Clinton portrays it.

She ignored the fact that Brazile, who was working as a CNN contributor at the same time that she was DNC chair, leaked questions to Clinton before two Democratic primary debates on March 6 and March 13, 2016 — in the heat of the primary campaign. CNN hosted both debates.
