Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass) told CNN News on Thursday that she believes the 2016 Democratic presidential primary was rigged in Hilary Clinton’s favor. Warren was asked by CNN’s Jake Tapper if she thought the presidential primary was rigged to favor Clinton. Warren didn’t hesitate to reply “yes”.
Tapper’s questions come after former Democratic National Committee (DNC) chairwoman Donna Brazile’s latest book is released, where she discussed evidence found of the primary’s slant in Clinton’s favor.
According to Brazile, a document was discovered in her investigation that revealed an agreement between Clinton’s campaign, her joint-fundraising committee, and the DNC that gave Clinton control over the Democratic party’s finances and strategies. This agreement was signed in August 2015, a full year before Clinton was nominated as the party’s candidate.
Brazile blasted this agreement, admitting that it “wasn’t illegal” but saying it “sure looked unethical”. She wrote that while it was not a criminal act, she felt it killed the party’s integrity.
