Skip to comments.Sen. Warren Walks Back Claim that Democratic Primaries Were 'Rigged'

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) followed former DNC Chairwoman Donna Braziles lead Thursday and walked back her assertions last week that the Democratic primary was rigged to favor Hillary Clinton. Her new story is that there is just some bias at the DNC but the primary was fair.
When asked by CNNs Jake Tapper last week whether she agreed that the process had been rigged in Clintons favor, she answered simply yes.
On PBS NewsHour later that same day, Warren responded I think it was when asked directly if the election was rigged.
However, in aninterview Thursday Warren said, "I agree with what Donna Brazile has said over the last few days; that while there was some bias at the DNC, the overall 2016 primary process was fair and Hillary made history."
Although Brazile is also now claiming that the primary was fair, an excerpt of her book published last week in Politico suggests otherwise.
"I had promised Bernie when I took the helm of the Democratic National Committee after the convention that I would get to the bottom of whether Hillary Clintons team had rigged the nomination process, as a cache of emails stolen by Russian hackers and posted online had suggested," Brazile wrote.
"By September 7, the day I called Bernie, I had found my proof and it broke my heart," she concluded just a few paragraphs later.
The funding arrangement with HFA and the victory fund agreement was not illegal, but it sure looked unethical, she concluded further down. If the fight had been fair, one campaign would not have control of the party before the voters had decided which one they wanted to lead. This was not a criminal act, but as I saw it, it compromised the partys integrity.
Hillary Clinton responded very briefly to the allegations Wednesday evening arguing it just wasnt the case that her campaign had unfair influence at the DNC.
Some phone calls are being made. The Clintons still hold a tremendous amount of power in the party and they are not going anywhere.
Hmmmmm, did she get a piece of paper with a black hand on it?
Gray Beaver indian giver...
She’s just another hog feeding at the trough.
Warren speaks with a forked tongue, like the reptile she is...
More like horse heads!
must have received a copy of her suicide note
Liawatha Walkem Back. Want keep knee caps, wigwam, stay in tribe and collect wampum.
Good thing for Sen Warren backing off this claim. She would be well within reason to steer clear of Wounded Knee, at least until the smoke signals clear.
She was told three words: “Trail of Tears”.
She doesn’t want those knees of hers wounded.
Once again squaw speak with fork-tongue
Just another lie from the squaw.
How do the Clintons send this message? Now that's a book I would read.
The Democrat Powerbrokers pulled Fauxcahontas’ chain.
How is “some bias” not a part of the spectrum of “rigged”?
All rigging starts out with some bias. When it is overt and blatant, as happened in 2016, then it moves from “some bias” to “a LOT of bias”, and the unseemly nature of the bullying tactics is apparent to all but the willfully ignorant.
Until the Democrat party rids itself of those two factions (the Clintons and the Obamas) which suck up all the oxygen in the room, they shall not be able to field a true national party for years to come, as there are simply no new young talent being brought up. Kamala Harris is not the one, but perhaps Tulsi Gabbard (representing 2nd District in Hawaii) may be a possibility, should she be permitted to mature further.
The various Hispanic activists within the Democrat party being put forth shall ALWAYS be niche candidates, none even coming close to having national appeal, though they may gain a lifetime gig in their particular district. One only has to look at the widespread appeal that Tom Perez brings to the Democrat chairmanship.
Since all white men within the Democrat ranks are definitely demoted to second-class status, that leaves only minorities and the female gender as actual contenders in 2020.
Did her cat go missing?
The rehabilitation of Hillary begins. Brazile won’t go under the bus, that would be a threefer.....misogynist, racist and age-ist. She will come back into the fold, but her truth needed airing. Never fear, I am sure the Clintons will once again be powerful.....never mind all the sexist crap BillyJeff is guilty of. Warren wants to stay in the good graces of ALL the powerful Dems. She’s just preserving her future.
