Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) said Thursday she believes the 2016 Democratic presidential primary was….
rigged for Hillary Clinton.
CLINTON NEWS NETWORK: Asked if Warren if she believed the Democratic primary was rigged in favour of Clinton, Warren replied with a simple “Yes.”
JAKE TAPPER: Was asking Warren about former Democratic National Committee (DNC) chairwoman Donna Brazile’s new book in which she says she found evidence that Clinton’s campaign fixed the Democratic nomination system in her favor. In an excerpt from her book that was provided to Politico, Brazile explains how she was tasked with investigating the DNC after hacked emails suggested the Clinton campaign fixed the nomination.
WARREN: said the allegations are a “real problem” and called on new DNC chairman Tom Perez to unite the party.
“When …Tom Perez was first elected chair of the DNC, the very first conversation I had with him [was] to say, you have got to put together a Democratic party in which everybody can have confidence that the party is working for Democrats, rather than Democrats are working for the party,” Warren said. “And he’s being tested now.”
“This is a test for Tom Perez,” she continued. “Either he’s going to succeed by bringing Bernie Sanders and Bernie Sanders’ representatives into this process and they’re going to say ‘it’s fair, it works, we all believe it,’ or he’s going to fail.”
BRAZILE: Blasted the agreement in her book, saying it “was not illegal, but it sure looked unethical.”
She wrote“This was not a criminal act, but as I saw it, it compromised the party’s integrity,”
