She began investigating whether Clinton "rigged the nomination process" as emails hacked from the DNC and published by WikiLeaks previous year had suggested, she said in an except of her new book coming out next week that appeared Thursday in Politico. Elizabeth Warren said she believes that the Democratic National Committee was "rigged" in favor of former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton during the 2016 primary.

"I was in agony as I dialed him", Brazile wrote of the September 7 phone call.

Brazile found out why when she finally laid her hands on the joint fundraising agreement between the DNC, the Hillary for America campaign, and the Hillary Victory Fund.

The agreement-signed by Amy Dacey, the former C.E.O. of the D.N.C., and Robby Mook with a copy to Marc Elias-specified that in exchange for raising money and investing in the D.N.C., Hillary would control the party's finances, strategy, and all the money raised.

Brazile found that her predecessor, Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, had allowed Clinton's headquarters in Brooklyn take care of the party's massive debt - which she claimed was up to $24 million after Barack Obama's 2012 campaign - and the other officers were kept in the dark about it.

While the agreement was technically not illegal, Brazile wrote that it struck her as "unethical".

He told authorities he had dropped Wall off on an island several hours after their voyage began. He later changed his story to say she had died of carbon monoxide poisoning while on board.

"If the fight had been fair, one campaign would not have control of the party before the voters had decided which one they wanted to lead".

Following Debbie Wasserman Schultz's July resignation ahead of the 2016 national convention, Brazile stepped in to helm the Democratic Party.

In Clinton's book "What Happened", she blamed Sanders for inflicting "lasting damage" to her campaign during the Democratic primary season, opening the door for Trump for using the "Crooked Hillary" slogan in his campaign, CNN reported.

"Either he's going to succeed by bringing Bernie Sanders and Bernie Sanders' representatives into this process and they're going to say it's fair, it works, we all believe it", she stated. Brazile describes how she informed Bernie of what she learned, and he "took this stoically". As details of the arrangement emerged in the spring of 2016, the joint fund-raising effort drew a great deal of scrutiny from the Sanders camp, the Vermont senator's supporters, and the state party committees that signed on.

"But what we've got to do as Democrats now, is we've got to hold this party accountable", Warren said.

She says Wasserman Schultz ignored her board of directors, including on the bombshell development that Russian Federation hacked the DNC's emails. In other words, Hillary Clinton basically controlled the DNC long before she was formally nominated, which means that Bernie never had a shot, no matter how strong his movement. "We would go forward".
