CNN announced on Monday that they have accepted the resignation letter of acting Democratic National Committee chairwoman Donna Brazile, after revelations that she gave questions to the Clinton campaign ahead of a CNN debate and CNN-TV One town hall.
CNN spokeswoman Lauren Pratapas issued the following statement about Brazile’s departure:
“On October 14th, CNN accepted Donna Brazile’s resignation as a CNN contributor. (Her deal had previously been suspended in July when she became the interim head of the DNC.) CNN never gave Brazile access to any questions, prep material, attendee list, background information or meetings in advance of a town hall or debate. We are completely uncomfortable with what we have learned about her interactions with the Clinton campaign while she was a CNN contributor.”
Brazile, who is an ardent Clinton supporter, has denied passing along any debate or town hall questions to the campaign. But the WikiLeaks revelations of her emails to Clinton campaign manager John Podesta and communications director Jennifer Palmieri show that she did exactly that, further exposing the lengths to which Hillary Clinton is willing to go to in order to win the election next week.
