WATCH: Keith Ellison Runs From Questions On DNC Paying Hillary Clinton Millions

In a video published by The Washington Free Beacon on Wednesday, Democratic National Committee vice chairman Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) dodged questions about the Democratic Party paying Hillary Clinton millions of dollars for email campaign email lists.

The questions were asked by a member of the conservative group America Rising as Ellison was leaving an event in Minnesota. The Free Beacon reports:

The DNC, which is millions of dollars in debt, has agreed to pay $1.65 million to Clinton’s new group, Onward Together, for access to its email list and other voter data, leading some in the party to call for a refund from Clinton. They want her to donate access to the lists to the DNC and return the money she’s already been paid.

“Are you disappointed that the Democrats are paying millions of dollars for Hillary Clinton’s email list?” the person asked Ellison. “Do you have any opinion on the fact that Hillary Clinton is charging millions of dollars for her email list?”


DNC vice chairman Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) ignores questions about the DNC paying millions of dollars to Hillary Clinton for her campaign email lists.
