Donna Brazile mulled trying to replace Clinton with Biden as nominee

Donna Brazile mulled trying to replace Clinton with Biden as nominee

And while the DNC maintained "the authority to make the final decision" on senior staff in the communications, technology and research departments, the party organization said it would choose "between candidates acceptable to HFA".

The agreement established rules and guidance around the separate joint fundraising agreement Clinton's campaign signed with the DNC.

In an interview on "Meet The Press" Sunday, the current DNC chair took issue with Brazile's claim that she considered attempting to replace Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton after she struggled to walk while leaving a 9/11 memorial event in 2016.

Geraldo Rivera said this morning that the newest revelations about Hillary Clinton and the DNC are the "nail in the coffin" when it comes to the Clintons and the Democratic Party.

Members of the Clinton campaign have since penned a letter responding to Brazile's claims, saying "Donna came in to take over the DNC at a very hard time".

"George, for those who are telling me to shut up, they told Hillary that a couple months ago".

The document provides context to a bombshell book excerpt published earlier this week by interim DNC chair Donna Brazile, which alleges that an unethical agreement was signed between Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign and the DNC to keep the party financially afloat. "You know what I tell them, 'Go to hell.' I'm going to tell my story", an emotional Brazile said on ABC's This Week with George Stephanopoulos.

While Brazile's forthcoming book, "Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns that Put Donald Trump in the White House", has been condemned by the Clinton campaign, she maintains that her decisions and role had "nothing to do with the Hillary campaign".

Brazile called the eventual hacking of the DNC "worse than Hurricane Katrina" for her in regard to the emotional toll it took, but said she wishes she had done more.

She also wrote in her book that Clinton's Brookyln campaign headquarters lacked so much passion and energy that it felt like "someone had died". It is particularly troubling and puzzling that she would seemingly buy into false Russian-fueled propaganda, spread by both the Russians and our opponent, about our candidate's health. What's more, the Sanders team posits that the joint fundraising agreement they signed with the party was never acted on.

To be sure, the scathing criticism of one long-standing Democrat on other members of her own party comes at a bad time - days away from the Virginia gubernatorial race featuring Republican Ed Gillespie against Democratic Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam.

'New Donna B book says she paid for and stole the Dem Primary.

'Nothing in this agreement shall be construed to violate the DNC's obligation of impartiality and neutrality through the Nominating process.

"We have to do better is what we have to do", Perez said.

"We do not recognize the campaign she portrays in the book", reads the letter, which was signed by top aides like Clinton's confidante Huma Abedin, former campaign chairman John Podesta and former campaign manager Robby Mook.
