Skip to comments.Brazile blasts 'incompetence' in response to email hack at Wasserman Schultz-led DNC
Posted on 11/07/2017 2:36:25 PM PST by RoosterRedux
Donna Brazile's newly released 2016 campaign tell-all accuses the FBI and the Democratic National Committee she used to lead of a bungled response to the email hacks that threw the party into turmoil last summer.
In Hacks, Brazile writes that she only learned of the breach in early June 2016 when then-DNC Chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz informed her and other party officials that The Washington Post was set to publish a story on the matter.
Brazile describes Wasserman Schultz' tone as "so casual."
On June 14, Debbie invited the Democratic Party officers to a conference call to alert us that a story about hacking the DNC that would be published in the Washington Post the following day, Brazile writes. That call was the first time wed heard that there was a problem.
About five weeks later, at the start of the Democratic National Convention, WikiLeaks released more than 19,000 emails, including ones that suggested Wasserman Schultz had helped Clinton win the nomination over rivals Bernie Sanders and others. The revelations ultimately led to Wasserman Schultz, of Florida, stepping down and Brazile becoming interim DNC chairwoman.
Brazile writes that a reporter had told her the FBI had been calling and calling the DNC about Russia possibly having hacked into the groups electronic systems but never got anyone to respond.
Brazile asked aloud why agents didnt directly call Wasserman Schultz, considering she was a member of Congress. She also writes that Eric Holder, the U.S. attorney general at the time, stopped her at then-President Obamas birthday party in August 2016 to say that the DNC was not very responsive to the FBI inquires.
And here I was thinking that he was asking me to dance, Brazile writes.

Eric Holder was not the United States Attorney General in August of 2016.
She’s being too nice................
Lynch was, but he was probably at the party...............
Cat fight....Brazile loathes Debbie. Can you tell???
Shouldn’t Ms. Donna know that?
President Brazile, anyone? Just a tad less manly than the Mooch.
There was no HACK Seth Rich was murdered for giving the zip drive to Wiki.....
They MURDERED HIM
That also jumped out at me as being wrong.
And every FReeper knows why Hillary kept DWS on a VERY tight leash.. It was either that, or Lil’Debbie would get the Seth Rich treatment.
It also sounds like the FBI was the little b18ch of the DNC too. Calling and calling to inform them of the possibility that those dirty, Trump led Russians were trying to read their salacious e-mails - but that’s just oppo research, right? everyone does it!
“Incompetence” would be the best case.... it’s more like malice, dishonesty, criminality, and treason.
Don A Brassiere gonna be a Republican by the time this is over
But she needs to ditch that blue hair for a silver look.
That thought has occurred to me. She would be welcome...she knows where the bodies are buried and all their MO’s.
Interesting. TruePundit put this out 11/04/2017 and has it as “former” AG Holder.
Holder was gone in 04/2015.
The leak was leaked 7/22/2016. FBI announces investigation 7/25, Obama’s b’day party was 08/06/.
The real question should be, why does Holder know about this intimately 13 days in ? especially when the DNC wouldn’t give up the servers to the FBI ?
(Other than the fact that he probably kept and still has his security clearance.)
She has some company in that.
Interesting that you mention this. This may be the strategy to give the Democrat party a new face.
No, she is just positioning herself to run against Trump in 2020.
And it just occurred to me that the Rat Media is loving talking about this right now because the can more easily continue to ignore the Uranium One corruption.
That is just silly. Do not trust someone who hates America. She plans to run for office, I think, and, most likely it will be against Trump in 2020.
