Donna Brazile, the interim head of the Democratic National Committee who was dismissed from CNN for leaking debate questions to Hillary Clinton, has been revealed yet again to have passed two more questions to her party’s nominee.
In a fresh batch of emails from the inbox of Clinton campaign chair John Podesta, Brazile was revealed to have sent the campaign a question to be asked to Clinton, and another one for her primary season rival Bernie Sanders.
In the March 12, 2015 email, sent one day before a CNN-sponsored debate, Brazile sent this question that would be asked to Clinton:
“Secretary Clinton, yesterday in St. Louis, you spoke at carpenters and others ‘who built this nation.’ Both you and Senator Sanders depend on big union support. President Obama pushed for a massive infrastructure bill that would mean millions of jobs for in this area. Yet many of these trade unions have locked out Blacks and other minorities for years. Will you call a meeting with them before November, and if you win, when you are president, to demand that the trade unions stop freezing Blacks and others from these good paying jobs?”
This is the second question she sent the campaign to be asked to Sanders:
“Senators Sanders, you and Hillary Clinton have often talked about the problem of income inequality. Many other Democrats have. Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr. has talked about the lack of economic upward mobility for Black and other minorities in Silicon Valley and corporate America. Yet Power Pac Plus did a study showing that four years ago, the Democratic Party spent $514 million on consultants, and only 1.7%, or $8.4 million went to minority-owned firms or firms with at least one minority principle. How can the public be assured that either one of you or the Democratic Party can fix income inequality when the same party practices it?”
Both questions were in fact asked during the debate.
The email is the third to be released by WikiLeaks since last month showing that Brazile, who was a contributor to CNN at the time, was feeding questions to Clinton.
CNN cut ties with her last month in light of the scandal.
