Donna Brazile, the interim Democrat National Committee chair who was caught feeding debate questions to Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in the WikiLeaks emails, was more or less forced out of her role as a contributor to CNN, according to the network.
Brazile had originally left the network on a temporary basis when she had accepted the role at the DNC. However, according to Politico, Brazile offered her resignation last month. It was made public on Monday.
“On Oct. 14, CNN accepted Donna Brazile’s resignation as a CNN contributor. (Her deal had previously been suspended in July when she became the interim head of the DNC.),” a statement from CNN spokeswoman Lauren Pratapas said.
“CNN never gave Brazile access to any questions, prep material, attendee list, background information or meetings in advance of a town hall or debate. We are completely uncomfortable with what we have learned about her interactions with the Clinton campaign while she was a CNN contributor,” it added.
While Brazile’s departure was technically a resignation, the language of CNN’s statement made it clear she wasn’t likely to continue at the network either way.
Brazile had originally come under fire when an email showed she was passing on questions to Hillary Clinton’s campaign during the primary debate season.
Brazile tried ducking the charges through various rhetorical parries, but things got worse for the embattled DNC chief when another email surfaced Monday saying, “I’ll send some more” in relation to debate questions.
It seems unlikely the DNC job is going to be a permanent one for Brazile. During just a few months at the helm, her handling of the WikiLeaks email dumps and the fallout from Clinton’s email investigation has been a disaster on par with “Battlefield Earth.”
In addition, I don’t think her options in the media are going to be too numerous, considering that she was apparently working as a de facto mole for Clinton and her campaign.
It’s hard to picture career opportunities for someone so scandal-ridden. Her only options seem to be either retiring or becoming the Democrat nominee for president.
