Former DNC interim chair Donna Brazile is holding nothing back, attacking every top Democrat in her path. Her new book highlights how Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Debbie Wasserman Schultz “leeched” the Dem Party “of its vitality.”

Brazile lays out how selfish trio sucked the vitality out of party
The Democratic party was “leeched it of its vitality” by Former President Barack Obama and others in the lead-up to the 2016 election campaign, according to Donna Brazile, former interim chair of the Democratic National Committee.
“We had three Democratic parties: The party of Barack Obama, the party of Hillary Clinton, and this weak little vestige of a party led by [Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz] that was doing a very poor job getting people who were not president elected,” Brazile writes in her new book “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House,” released Tuesday.
Many of the revelations in Brazile’s book revolve around the deep debt the Democratic party was facing at the end of Obama’s presidency and the lengths it had to go to to survive a national presidential race. Obama’s use of party funds for private pollsters and focus groups drained the party, and Wasserman Schultz’s leadership as party chairman failed to address the problem. Clinton then bailed out the party in order to gain control of it, according to Brazile.
“This was not working to strengthen the party. He left it in debt. Hillary bailed it out so that she could control it, and Debbie went along with all of this because she liked the power and perks of being a chair but not the responsibilities,” Brazile said.
Obama, who swept the 2008 Democratic presidential primary away from then-senator Clinton, didn’t have the same connection to the DNC that other party leaders had.

Donna Brazile tells Democratic critics of her 2016 tell-all book to ‘go to hell’
Former interim Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile dismissed critics of her scathing new 2016 campaign memoir.
In an interview on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday, Brazile brushed off Democrats telling her that she was reopening wounds of the 2016 Democratic primary, saying that if she had waited to release her book, Democrats would accuse her of impacting the 2018 midterm elections.
A longtime Democratic operative, Brazile was tapped to lead the embattled DNC after former chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigned in July after leaked internal emails that showed key members of her organization speaking critically of Sen. Bernie Sanders in his primary fight against Hillary Clinton.
