Yet the states kept less than half of 1 percent of the $82 million they had amassed from the extravagant fund-raisers Hillary's campaign was holding, just as Gary had described to me when he and I talked in August. When the Politico story described this arrangement as "essentially ... money laundering" for the Clinton campaign, Hillary's people were outraged at being accused of doing something shady. Bernie's people were angry for their own reasons, saying this was part of a calculated strategy to throw the nomination to Hillary.I wanted to believe Hillary, who made campaign finance reform part of her platform, but I had made this pledge to Bernie and did not want to disappoint him. I kept asking the party lawyers and the DNC staff to show me the agreements that the party had made for sharing the money they raised, but there was a lot of shuffling of feet and looking the other way.When I got back from a vacation in Martha's Vineyard, I at last found the document that described it all: the Joint Fund-Raising Agreement between the DNC, the Hillary Victory Fund, and Hillary for America.The agreement--signed by Amy Dacey, the former CEO of the DNC, and Robby Mook with a copy to Marc Elias--specified that in exchange for raising money and investing in the DNC, Hillary would control the party's finances, strategy, and all the money raised. Her campaign had the right of refusal of who would be the party communications director, and it would make final decisions on all the other staff. The DNC also was required to consult with the campaign about all other staffing, budgeting, data, analytics, and mailings.I had been wondering why it was that I couldn't write a press release without passing it by Brooklyn. Well, here was the answer.
that sounds like wishful thinking from conservative entertainment.
the dnc was already purged to satisfy the sanders people. it may not have succeeded in satisfying them, but if you think their issues with the dnc will distract them from their fight trump, you are badly misreading them.

they don't feel shit on by the dnc as much as they feel shit on by trump. if you think their focus will be something other than trump, you've got it wrong.
I think I posted about this in the election thread last year. This story has been out there for awhile. The only new part is Brazile throwing Hillary, her campaign and DWS under the bus about it.Is this Brazile's way of making it clear that the funding of Fusion GPS was all on Hillary since her campaign had complete control over DNC cash?Is it related to the 4 still sealed indictments?Either way I have a lot more respect for Brazile for writing this article.

Just make sure you have the barrel aligned with your brainstem or else you'll spend the rest of your life pissing through a catheter.
