    ‘I Will Forever Regret’: Donna Brazile Admits She Gave Debate Questions to Clinton Campaign

    In other news, winter storm Stella has reached the outskirts of Hades.


    edit: the op-ed that contained that nugget was itself a “Russia! Russia!” attempt to whitewash by the guilty party, so I wanted to warn about that.

      2. Donna has LONG history as a lying sack of shit; she only regrets being caught

      October 1988: Dukakis Aide Quits; Remarks Are Disavowed

      October 21, 1988|From Staff and Wire Reports

      A Democratic presidential campaign official resigned Thursday after the Dukakis campaign disavowed her comment that “George Bush owes it to the American people to fess up” about a rumor concerning an extramarital affair that rippled through Wall Street on Wednesday.

      Dukakis personally apologized to Bush for the remarks, made by deputy field director Donna Brazile, when the two candidates met Thursday night in New York for the Catholic archdiocese’s annual fund-raising dinner.

      Brazile told reporters accompanying the Democratic candidate that “the American people have every right to know if Barbara Bush will share that bed with him in the White House.”

      Dukakis campaign spokesman Dayton Duncan said later: “Donna was not speaking on behalf of the campaign in any way whatsoever” and did not reflect the views of Dukakis. Shortly thereafter, Brazile said in a statement:  “Today I made certain comments which I deeply regret. I believe too strongly in the importance of electing Mike Dukakis and Lloyd Bentsen to allow myself to become an issue in the campaign. Because the time is short, and the issues are so important, I have decided to leave the campaign.”

        3. Donna Brazille — running the smartest campaigns since 1988!

        And her excuse for the regrettable behavior is that she was certainly willing to be helpful for either campaign.

        If only the Sanders had asked her to illegally pass-along some of CNN’s confidential information!

        Maybe they did — she claims that “the Russians” orchestrated the whole thing with selective leaks. They left out all of the ones with her and kittens apparently.

        4. Yep! She only regrets being caught and what that's meant for her power and

        influence. Thanks for the info about th Dukakis campaign. Some people never change.

        10. Wow, I never knew that

        She’s a complete sleazebag, then. Nice.

        What if I want to tell you to leave me and my beloved ones in peace

        But you only understand the language of the sword

      5. And I'll never forget.

      The only thing she’s really sorry about is getting caught. What else did they get away with that we haven’t found out about yet?

      I would prefer not to.

      7. If you watched the debates it was obvious.

      Bernie would listen to every question fully and then respond.

      Clinton would be interrupting with an answer before the question was even half finished.

      It was a dead giveaway.

      8. She regrets that she's a washed up has-been

      And now she tries to slander and sling mud at the people who beat her. Sleazy doesn’t begin to describe her and I’m sure that’s why Hillary hired her.

      9. Interesting. Is this the same D. Brazile, who claimed that the

      Russians distorted those e-mails? Ah, but now it is easier to

      just tell the truth for a short moment, even though it debunks

      her whole “Russia, Russia” story after that admission.

        12. In her eyes, it doesn't. She was on The Daily Show one evening this past week,

        pushing a trainload of revisionist history.  She was still talking about “Russia!” and “explained” handing out the debate questions by saying

        a) she’s a political operative (really?  that was your job at CNN??)

        b) “we don’t know” what she was saying to the Sanders campaign (implying that she also gave them the questions)

        c) she was working for the good of minorities (once again implying that Bernie isn’t)

        All in all, it was a nauseating performance and Trevor Noah helped her do it.  I can remember when you could get more honest news out of the first ten minutes of The Daily Show than you could out of day’s worth of CNN, even if it was wrapped in snark.  Now, it’s just another propaganda organ.

      11. Really?

      I didn’t know that the Russians hacked the voting machines or told your candidate not to campaign in Wisconsin or in rural parts of Pennsylvania where the election was lost.

      Shut up and have some gumbo, lady!

      13. We probably have Donna to thank for Bush "winning" in 2000, too.

      When she was supposed to be Gore’s campaign manager. Donna Brazile: making sure the worst candidate wins and losing campaigns for decades!

        15. When losing means many people suffering, she has no right to stay in politics

        She should’ve retired at that point.  That was a colossal loss which eventually ushered the national security state and the present era of wars.

      16. Ugh

      She will forever regret getting caught and being reminded about it at every turn. I don’t believe for one moment that she regrets giving Hillary an advantage by giving those questions to her. Brazile is a unethical liar and people with any integrity should shun her at every opportunity.

      17. ‘I Will Forever Regret’…

      …‘getting caught.  And I will forever hate Wikileaks for finding out and worse, for sharing the information with the American people, especially those who voted for Bernie (or tried to, anyway) in the Democratic primaries.’

      18. Centrist Underground's three resident trolls forgave her and started morale

      beatings ASAP. Why can’t more people be like that?

      20. And yet she was not fired as interim chair of the DNC.

      She regrets it but apparently neither she nor the party think that it was serious enough to have her removed as interim chair.  Unbefuckinglievable.

      21. Uh huh, sure you do. If she believes that, I believe it.
