Donna Brazile says CNN should have let her ‘defend myself’ against Wikileaks
Kelsey Sutton, Politico, Nov 15 2016

Donna Brazile, the interim chair of the DNC and former CNN contributor, went after her former employer at an event at a women’s college in Virginia Monday, blaming them for “ripping me a new one” instead of allowing her to defend herself after it appeared she tipped off Hillary Clinton’s campaign to town hall questions. Brazile, who had been a contributor and commentator at CNN for 14 years, resigned from the network earlier this year after WikiLeaks published hacked emails that showed her tipping off Clinton in advance to at least two questions that she would be asked at upcoming town hall events. Brazile said at a talk held at Hollins University, according to The Roanoke Times:

CNN never gave me a question! I wish CNN had given me some other things, like the ability to defend myself, rather than ripping me a new one!

Brazile did not deny the allegation that she had emailed two questions in advance, but according to the Roanoke Times she said she “never got on Clinton’s campaign airplane or prepped the candidate for any of the debates.” When the network cut ties with Brazile permanently, it said the company was “completely uncomfortable” with the revelations, and asserted that it had not provided questions to Brazile in advance. Brazile also took aim at WikiLeaks, which published the hacked emails that led to her resignation, referring to them as “WikiLies” throughout the speech.
