(National Sentinel) Election 2016: Following an episode in which Hillary Clinton fainted during last year’s grueling presidential campaign, former DNC boss Donna Brazile said she considered replacing her with then-Vice President Joe Biden.
Clinton fainted while attending an outdoor ceremony in New York City marking the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. But Brazile, then the interim Democratic National Committee chairwoman, had already known that Clinton has pneumonia, she wrote in her upcoming book, according to The Washington Post, which got an advance copy.
It’s just the latest revelation Brazile has made regarding Clinton, former President Barack Obama, and others tied to the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee. Earlier reports noted that Brazile blamed Clinton and Obama for draining the DNC of funding and leaving it broke.
Also, in an op-ed published last week, Brazile, who once served as an advisor on both of Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign and ran Vice President Al Gore’s unsuccessful 2000 presidential campaign, claimed she has “proof” that Hillary Clinton rigged last year’s Democratic presidential nomination to steal it from rival Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont.
Brazile noted that while some were trying to figure out whether Clinton rigged the process to favor herself over Sanders and a former Democratic Maryland governor, she found out that the committee was in dire financial straits.
“When I was asked to run the Democratic Party after the Russians hacked our emails, I stumbled onto a shocking truth about the Clinton campaign,” she said.
A former member of the Clinton campaign hit back at Brazile in a post at the blog site Medium.
“We were shocked to learn the news that Donna Brazile actively considered overturning the will of the Democratic voters by attempting to replace Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine as the Democratic Presidential and Vice Presidential nominees,” reads the opening of the letter by Jesse Ferguson. “It is particularly troubling and puzzling that she would seemingly buy into false Russian-fueled propaganda, spread by both the Russians and our opponent, about our candidate’s health.”
Despite Clinton’s insistence that Russia “colluded” with the Trump campaign to “steal the election” from her, there is still no evidence of any collusion, despite more than a year’s worth of investigating by the FBI, U.S. intelligence services and several congressional committees.
