Former DNC chairwoman Donna Brazile, the woman who infamously leaked town hall questions to the Hillary Clinton campaign during the 2016 primary, told RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel to “go to hell” twice during a Fox News segment for suggesting that the DNC is trying to rig the primary against Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).

At the top of the segment, Brazile was asked to give her take on McDaniel saying that the Democrats may end up having a brokered convention, which will likely result in superdelegates voting against Bernie Sanders.

“First of all, I want to talk to my Republicans. First of all, stay the hell out of our race, stay the hell out of our race,” Brazile began. “I get sick and tired of listening to Republicans tell me and the Democrats about our process. First of all, they don’t have a process. They are canceling primaries. They have a winner takes all. They don’t have the kind of democracy that we see on the Democratic side.”

Brazile then proceeded to tell Donna to “go to hell” while accusing her and the Republicans of using “Russian talking points” to divide the Democrats.

“And for people to use Russian talking points to sew division among Americans that is stupid. So, Ronna, go to hell,” Brazile exclaimed, prompting some pushback from the hosts. “No, go to hell. I’m tired of it. We are not trying to prevent anyone from becoming the nominee. If you have the delegates and win, you will win.  This notion that somehow Democrats are out there trying to put hurdles or roadblocks before one candidate. that stupid.”

As to why Republicans were pushing this alleged narrative, Brazile said that the GOP is “scared” of the Democrats uniting to defeat President Trump in November while accusing them of practicing “foreign interference” by repeating “Russian talking points.”

“I know what’s going on, they are scared of Democrats coming together to defeat Donald Trump,” she said. “They need to be focusing on what we are focusing on in the Democratic Party, and that is preventing foreign interference in our election. Stop using Russian talking points, Madame chairwoman. Stop using it. It pisses me off.”

In conclusion, Brazile asked Republicans to prevent proof of the DNC rigging the primary against Bernie, seemingly unaware that she herself is living proof of that fact, given that she leaked questions to the Hillary Clinton campaign in 2016.

“To infer that we are trying to prevent one candidate over another, that’s not happening,” concluded Brazile. “And if there is any proof, Madame Chairwoman, any proof, Mr. President, that we are trying to somehow or another change this process for one candidate, show the proof.”

In 2017, Brazile stated she found “no evidence” that the DNC rigged the primary against Bernie Sanders after writing in her memoir of an “unethical” agreement between the Clinton campaign and DNC that allegedly enabled Hillary to exert “control of the party long before she became its nominee.”

Discussions about the Democratic Party rigging the primary against Bernie Sanders heated up on Monday when Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) dropped out of the presidential race just one day after Mayor Pete Buttigieg. Even more suspicious is Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) decision to stay in the race despite having won fewer delegates than either Klobuchar or Buttigieg, further adding to speculation that she’s purposely trying to siphon votes away from Bernie Sanders.
