An interesting but overlooked detail in the ‘Brazile Dossier’ is the revelation that Barack Obama plunged the Democratic National Committee into hitherto unheard-of debt. So, because they were trying to fix this quietly via a secret deal that gave Hillary Clinton control of party finances, Clinton, Biden and Obama all must have been in on the agreement to give away control of the DNC’s election fundraising apparatus to Hillary.
According to former interim DNC chairman Donna Brazile in Politico:
Obama left the party $24 million in debt—$15 million in bank debt and more than $8 million owed to vendors after the 2012 campaign—and had been paying that off very slowly. Obama’s campaign was not scheduled to pay it off until 2016. Hillary for America (the campaign) and the Hillary Victory Fund (its joint fundraising vehicle with the DNC) had taken care of 80 percent of the remaining debt in 2016, about $10 million, and had placed the party on an allowance.
I question Brazile’s timeline that she didn’t know too. But either way, she doesn’t blame Obama for anything – no candles lit and gospel music played by Brazile to deal with that betrayal, even as she discloses in plain sight that Obama’s debt was the triggering event that let Clinton take over the party.
Brazile and everyone else involved know that Obama is so untouchable as a symbol of the Democratic Party that they can freely admit he was responsible for this massive debt without anyone in the media or Democratic politics holding him responsible for ceding control to Hillary.
