Donna Brazile is out at CNN amid allegations that she gave Hillary Clinton's campaign questions before a CNN debate and a CNN-TV One town Hall. Confirming Braziles dismissal, CNN said it was completely uncomfortable with her conduct.
The email was sent ahead of the town hall where Clinton and former rival Bernie Sanders faced off in Flint ahead of the MI primary.
Brazile's contract with CNN was suspended in July, when she was appointed interim DNC chair. "It's so tragic. And what's worse, some homes have not been tested and it's important to encourage seniors to also get tested", the email read. In an email sent to Podesta in early March, she wrote that a question would come from a Flint, Michigan, woman who is dealing with that city's water crisis.
Wikileaks has been releasing emails from the account of John Podesta, the Clinton campaign chairman. A woman did ask about her and her family and others being poisoned by drinking lead-contaminated water - along with the people of both Flint and D.C.
Democratic National Committee Chair Donna Brazile confers with Senate Minority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) before the third and final presidential debate in Las Vegas, on October 19.
Brazile previously denied allegations that she gave the Clinton campaign information about debate questions ahead of time, according to media reports.
New information from WikiLeaks shows Brazile fingered her source for the question as Roland Martin, who helped moderate the forum. "Godspeed to all my former colleagues".
And then there is also this follow-up to a previous email in which Brazile promises even more debate questions.
Left unresolved is how Brazile would have received advanced copies of the debate questions that were supposed to be closely guarded, if the e-mails are genuine.
Brazile was either alluding to the leaked emails showing her corruption, or to the FBI re-opening an email investigation into Clinton's private email use, which Brazile described as "an 18-wheeler smacking into us".
The former secretary of state responded, "Well, I agree completely". He answered questions about the foundation and foreign donors, saying: "There is no doubt in my mind that we have never done anything knowingly inappropriate in terms of taking money to influence any kind of American government policy".
