- Brazile thought that Obama was a leech to the Democratic Party, that he only used the Party for his own ego and personal causes which helped drive the DNC into near bankruptcy.
- According to Brazile: “We had three Democratic parties: The party of Barack Obama, the party of Hillary Clinton, and this weak little vestige of a party led by (Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz) that was doing a very poor job getting people who were not president elected.”
- Furthermore: “This was not working to strengthen the party. He [Obama] left it in debt. Hillary bailed it out so that she could control it, and Debbie went along with all of this because she liked the power and perks of being a chair but not the responsibilities.”
- After reading what Brazile has released from her forthcoming book, Shapiro summarizes her conclusions that Hillary was the villainess, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz was incompetent and lazy, and Obama was “the unnamed cancer that ate away at the center of the party.”
- Brazile realized the Hillary had indeed rigged the nomination process of the Democratic Party and she regretted having to be the one to tell Bernie Sanders that he had been short circuited in his plan to become President.
- Wasserman-Schultz, the predecessor to Brazile as head of the Democratic National Committee, was inept and a disaster: “My predecessor, Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, had not been the most active chair in fundraising at a time when President Barack Obama’s neglect had left the party in significant debt. As Hillary’s campaign gained momentum, she [Clinton]resolved the party’s debt and put it on a starvation diet. It had become dependent on her campaign for survival, for which she expected to wield control of its operations.”
- Brazile claims that Wasserman-Schultz turned the operations of the Democratic Party over to the Clinton camp before the primaries started which allowed Clinton to control all party functions to her advantage.
- Brazile claims that Obama help lead the party to being broke with a $24 million debt on the books when Brazile took over the DNC.
- This debt hole allowed Clinton to step in and eliminate the debt but only by assuming control of all Democratic Party operations.
- According to Brazile, the CFO of the Hillary campaign, Gary Gensler, “described the party as fully under the control of Hillary’s campaign, which seemed to confirm the suspicions of the Bernie camp. The campaign had the DNC on life support, giving it money every month to meet its basic expenses, while the campaign was using the party as a fund-raising clearing house.”
- Shapiro described the Hillary takeover of the Democratic Party as a money laundering operation since while she raised a bunch of campaign money, almost all of that money went to her campaign and she only allocated less than one half of 1 percent of all money raised to the states,” as described by Brazile: “When the Politico story described this arrangement as “essentially … money laundering” for the Clinton campaign, Hillary’s people were outraged at being accused of doing something shady. Bernie’s people were angry for their own reasons, saying this was part of a calculated strategy to throw the nomination to Hillary.”
- Shapiro and others conclude that Bernie Sanders campaign got robbed of a fair fight for the nominations which Brazile describes the reality: “The funding arrangement with HFA and the victory fund agreement was not illegal, but it sure looked unethical. 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.”
- “We had three Democratic parties: The party of Barack Obama, the party of Hillary Clinton, and this weak little vestige of a party led by (Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz) that was doing a very poor job getting people who were not president elected.”
- “This [Obama’s actions and/or inaction] was not working to strengthen the party. He left it in debt. Hillary bailed it out so that she could control it, and Debbie went along with all of this because she liked the power and perks of being a chair but not the responsibilities.”
