Donna Brazile admits she passed debate questions to Hillary, blames Russians

Former interim Democratic National Committee chairperson Donna Brazile has for months been dodging questions about passing along questions to Hillary Clinton's staff in advance of a CNN debate - but now, she's speaking out and calling the misstep "a mistake I will forever regret".

Writing in Time magazine, Brazile said she would "forever regret" the decision, which was revealed after WikiLeaks published thousands of emails belonging to Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.

Democratic analyst Donna Brazile seems to have confessed that she sent town hall debate topics to Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign while she worked for CNN.

Brazile also maintained that the D.N.C. had behaved fairly and it was media spin that made it look like she was playing favorites.

Predictably, Brazile played the victim... the irony not lost of her claiming to be "a Christian woman" while lying.

Supporters of the self-declared "democratic socialist" were similar in some respects to supporters of President Trump-they were fiercely loyal and felt ostracized by politicians in Washington, D.C. In the wake of emails that were released by Wikileaks, DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigned from her post.

In one email, Brazile told Clinton Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri, "One of the questions directed to HRC tomorrow is from a woman with a rash", the night before a March 6 CNN primary debate in Flint, Michigan. What you're - well, for suggestive e-mails were stolen. However, she did not share any debate questions with the Bernie Sanders campaign.

The night of the debate a similar question was asked of Clinton and her primary opponent Vermont Democratic Sen.

In another email dated March 12, Brazile passed on a question about the death penalty: "From time to time I get the questions in advance".

However, Brazile denied she ever forwarded the debate questions, often pivoting away from the question saying that she did not want to give any verification to the emails that were reportedly hacked by the Russians.

"Let me be clear", she concluded. She ended the segment telling Megyn Kelly, "Go to Russian Federation".

On Friday, Brazile penned an essay for TIME where she talked about the importance of launching an investigation into the Trump administration's apparent connections to Russian Federation.
