"To see that the Hillary Clinton campaign was funding the DNC and in return demanded total control of the DNC before she was the nominee, shows how truly broken the DNC was", Mrs. McDaniel said on Fox News, referring to the Democratic National Committee.

In an excerpt from her new book, Brazile said she found "proof" that Clinton rigged the nomination process and that it "broke her heart". Brazile details how she vowed to investigate whether or not Hillary Clinton's people "rigged the nomination process", which Brazile suspected was the case, but she wanted to dig into the matter to ward off any Russian shenanigans.

In the passage, Brazile outlines how she first discovered the joint fundraising agreement between Hillary Clinton's campaign and the DNC that created 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 said she wasn't aware of the committee's financial chaos - it was about $23 million in debt - when she took over, blaming Wasserman Schultz for her lack of interest in "controlling the party".

"When a Politico story described the arrangement as "'essentially ... money laundering' for the Clinton campaign, Hillary's people were outraged at being accused of doing something shady", Brazile wrote, per Politico. I explained that the cancer was that she had exerted this control of the party long before she became its nominee. The catch was that former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the entire apparatus of the DNC was at the control of the Clinton Campaign, serving as an extension of it under the false pretense of neutrality.

Even Apple Can't Believe Apple's Q4 Results
Apple ( AAPL ) posted strong fourth-quarter earnings, topping Wall Street estimates and forecasting healthy gains for early 2018. Most Australians buyers are expected to buy the premium iPhone X on a contract, however, which could prove more challenging.

"Had I known this, I never would have accepted the interim chair position, but here we were with only weeks before the election", write Brazile.

Right around the time of the convention the leaked emails revealed Hillary's campaign was grabbing money from the state parties for its own purposes, leaving the states with very little to support down-ballot races.

Ms Brazile said joint fundraising committees were created between the DNC and both the Clinton and Sanders campaigns during the 2016 election cycle. She now calls this "a mistake I will forever regret". "What we've gotta do as Democrats now is we've got to hold this party accountable".

In an interview with CNBC, Mr Perez said, "We're moving forward", when asked about the Ms Brazile's allegations.

She says she urged Sanders to urge his supporters to back Clinton anyway, and says she told him she had concerns about Clinton holding together the Obama coalition. "I really want to say he's being tested, and the real answer to whether or not he passes that test is whether or not Bernie Sanders' representatives in these negotiations walk away satisfied".
