Asked if DNC system was rigged in Clinton's favor, Warren says 'yes'

Trump calls for criminal probe after Donna Brazile claims Clinton campaign took 'control' of DNC

In an interview Sunday on ABC's "This Week," Brazile appeared to appeared to backpedal a little, telling interviewer George Stephanopoulos that "I found no evidence, none whatsoever" that the state primaries were rigged to benefit Clinton.

After Clinton's fainting spell, some Democratic insiders were abuzz with talk of replacing her - and Brazile says she was giving it considerable thought.

The Washington Post, which has obtained a copy of the book, ran more highlights yesterday, including that she had considered replacing Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine as nominees with Vice President Joe Biden and running mate Senator Cory Booker at the last minute, after Clinton almost fainted on September 11, 2016.

She also denied the 2016 primary was rigged, pushing back against assertions she found the Democratic party nomination process rigged. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., unfairly during the primaries.

But "I thought of Hillary, and all the women in the country who were so proud of and excited about her".

Brazile says her relationship with Mook got so bad that she told Clinton's chief administrative officer Charlie Baker, "Charlie, I'm about to kill Robby and it ain't going to be pretty".

Brazile also writes, according to the Post review, that she wanted to replace Clinton and Vice Presidential Nominee Sen.

The agreement between the Hillary Victory Fund, Hillary for America, and the DNC stipulated that Hillary would control the "party's finances, strategy, and all the money raised" in exchange for Clinton raising money and investing in the DNC, Brazile said.

Brazile also reportedly says she can not remember sending an email, as a paid CNN contributor, to the Clinton campaign sharing potential topics and questions in advance of a town hall event the cable news network was hosting, nor does she have a record of sending it. "I didn't want a Plan B. Plan A was great for me".

A former Clinton aide confirmed Brazile made the comment, but doesn't believe a call focused on hiring McMahon occurred. "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".

They added that they "do not recognize the campaign [Brazile] portrays in the book".

"This happened, we knew it happened then, now is the time to go forward", Weaver said on CNN at the time. "I got sick and exhausted of people trying to tell me how to spend money", she said.

Brazile said she had no regrets penning a tell-all, and when Stephanopoulos questioned whether her account is helpful to the Democratic Party, she took umbrage. "For those who are telling the me to shut up, they told Hillary [Clinton] that a couple of months ago". Go to hell. I'm going to tell my story.

On Sunday, Perez responded to the complaints, saying Brazile never had the power to restore the ticket as Clinton was not damaged.
