Elizabeth Warren thinks the 2016 primary was rigged in Hillary Clinton's favor

The details of the memo emerged after former DNC interim chair Donna Brazile made explosive claims in her upcoming book that Clinton had siphoned money out of the party and effectively took it over months before she captured her party's nomination.

"We do not recognize the campaign she portrays in the book", reads the letter, which was signed by top aides like Clinton's confidante Huma Abedin, former campaign chairman John Podesta and former campaign manager Robby Mook.

He also took the unusual step of suggesting that USA justice officials investigate one of his political rivals.

Trump seized on the crisis Friday, telling reporters that Brazile's book shows that Clinton "bought the DNC and stole the election from Bernie". Brazile, despite being a longtime party official with deep ties to Clinton, uses her book to torch Clinton and her campaign by blasting the candidate as someone who couldn't inspire enthusiasm, a key issue Clinton was forced to deal with during her general election fight against Trump.

Perez sent out a note to DNC members yesterday, ABC relates, in which he claimed that "the DNC offered all of the presidential campaigns the opportunity to set up a JFA and work with the DNC" for the general election. Her campaign had the right of refusal of who would be the party communications director, and it would make final decisions on all the other staff.

"I dont think any of us imagined there was a formal arrangement giving Clinton control of the DNC, that's for sure", he asserted. So when Wasserman Schultz approached the campaigns around Labor Day of 2015, the DNC needed the joint fundraising agreements to stay operational and out of more debt. They clearly failed to disclose that they had a preexisting partnership with his opponent which gave Hillary effective first-look control of the organization. Bernie Sanders, signed his own agreement with the party.

Brazile added there was no evidence the Democratic primary was rigged in Clinton's favor.

.

"At some point the Justice Department, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, must do what is right and proper", Trump concluded. "It's strictly a function of who is funding it at the moment". Did HFA allow much of it to be spent down-ballot at all?

Brazile ran the DNC into February, when she was replaced by former Labor Secretary Tom Perez.

Weaver, who now sits on a new unity commission charged with suggesting reforms for the party, said he was surprised that the newly-elected leadership at the party was not taking a more proactive stance to dealing with the old wounds. We are very proud that throughout the campaign and the aftermath the staff stuck together, worked as a team, and did the best we could for both Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine.

Clearly, Perez isn't a real executive, or at least not a really competent executive.

But Brazile suggested Sunday that the authority the Clinton camp had under the agreement went beyond "standard" joint-fundraising agreement and that a "separate", undisclosed deal also existed.
