A new email released by WikiLeaks shows DNC Chair, Donna Brazile, allegedly colluding with Clinton staffers.
The email, titled “One of the questions directed to HRC tomorrow is from a woman with a rash,” was sent March 5, 2016, and reads:
“Her family has lead poison and she will ask what, if anything, will Hillary do as president to help the ppl of Flint. Folks, I did a service project today. It’s so tragic. And what’s worse, some homes have not been tested and it’s important to encourage seniors to also get tested.”
The next day, during the Michigan primary debate between Hillary Clinton and Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), a woman who said her family was “poisoned by lead” asked the candidates about the Flint water crisis.
This isn’t the first time Brazile has been caught cheating. WikiLeaks previously released a hacked email, titled “From time to time I get the questions in advance,” in which Brazile allegedly sent Clinton staffers a question identical to the one Roland Martin, a primary debate co-moderator, sent to CNN the very next day.
When confronted about the email by Fox News’ Megyn Kelly, Brazile repeatedly dodged, finally landing on a proper excuse, claiming that the emails from WikiLeaks were “doctored.” Unfortunately for Brazile, a tech blogger seemingly proved the authenticity of the email using a DKIM verification program.
In light of the deluge of bad press, CNN spokesperson, Lauren Pratapas, announced that the network has parted ways with Brazile:
“On October 14th, CNN accepted Donna Brazile’s resignation as a CNN contributor. [Her deal had previously been suspended in July when she became the interim head of the DNC.] CNN never gave Brazile access to any questions, prep material, attendee list, background information or meetings in advance of a town hall or debate. We are completely uncomfortable with what we have learned about her interactions with the Clinton campaign while she was a CNN contributor.”
Following her resignation, Brazile tweeted a farewell to CNN in which she failed to acknowledge the reason she was let go:
Thank you @CNN. Honored to be a Democratic Strategist and commentator on the network. Godspeed to all my former colleagues.

So long, Donna. Like you did when Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigned from the DNC, another T-800 will take your place on CNN as if you never existed.
