Donna Brazile’s new memoir created a stir last week when she said the Democratic National Committee rigged the 2016 nomination process in favor of Hillary Clinton.
…and the hits keep a’coming.
As interim chair of the DNC, Brazile said she held secret deliberations to discuss the possibility of setting into motion the process to replace Clinton after the presidential nominee nearly fainted in September, according to The Washington Post.

Talk about an October surprise!
In her book, “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House,” Brazile wrote that she was looking at then-Vice President Joe Biden or New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker as possible replacements.
“Again and again I thought about Joe Biden,” Brazile said, before acknowledging she just couldn’t pull the trigger.
“No matter my doubts and my fears about the election and Hillary as a candidate, I could not make good on that threat to replace her,” she wrote.
More from The Post:
Brazile describes in wrenching detail Clinton’s bout with pneumonia. On Sept. 9, she saw the nominee backstage at a Manhattan gala and she seemed “wobbly on her feet” and had a “rattled cough.” Brazile recommended Clinton see an acupuncturist.
Two days later, Clinton collapsed as she left a Sept. 11 memorial service at Ground Zero in New York. Brazile blasts the campaign’s initial efforts to shroud details of her health as “shameful.”
Describing Clinton’s campaign as “anemic,” Brazile said it had an “odor of failure,” in part because the candidate was struggling to appeal to white working-class voters.
In the end, it was their bond as women that may have saved Clinton.
“I thought of Hillary, and all the women in the country who were so proud of and excited about her. I could not do this to them,” Brazile wrote.
Team Hillary is pushing back hard against Brazile’s bombshell revelations, accusing her of selling out and hurting the Democratic Party in the process.
