RUSH: Here we go, this is Donna Brazile, a paragon of virtue, ho-ho-ho-ho, Donna Brazile, part of the Democrat National Committee that helped rig the game against poor old Crazy Bernie, and this we know. Was it the Russians? Yes, we think it was the Russians who unearthed the fact that Debbie “Blabbermouth” Schultz and Hillary were working together to screw Bernie Sanders. They didn’t even deny it. “Blabbermouth” Schultz had to quit.
Brazile is accused in the WikiLeaks document dump of sharing debate questions with Hillary Clinton, something we can totally believe would happen because they are not confident of Hillary in any public appearance. So Megyn Kelly, who herself joined in the unison of “can’t believe what an idiot Trump is” last night eventually left it and went to Donna Brazile and hammered her. It was redemptive of sorts. And we have a couple of sound bites here.
Set this up. It is after the debate. Megyn Kelly, Fox News, talking to the current chairwoman of the Democrat National Committee, Donna Brazile, about the WikiLeaks release of hacked emails that shows she received a debate question for a Democrat primary debate in advance of the event and found a way to share it with Hillary — well, with the campaign.
Megyn Kelly says, “You were accused of receiving a –” you’ve got to hear her answer on this, by the way, if you can follow it. It’s a lot of noise. It’s in the pink room there after the — what do they call it, greenroom, spin room. But you’ve gotta hear this woman. This is classic in how they obfuscate, deflect, deny. It’s a seminar in and of itself.
So she says, “You were accused of receiving a debate question before a CNN town hall where they partnered with TV One. Then you had this question on March 12th. The verbatim was provided to Roland Martin on CNN the next day.” So really the allegation is not that she got the question from CNN, that she got it from Roland Martin, who used to work at CNN and is now laboring away in obscurity at something called NY1. I think they found Roland in the black hole that Don Lemon was looking for the Malaysian Flight 370 and they gave him his own show when they found him in the black hole. So here is Brazile’s answer to this.
BRAZILE: Well, Kelly, since I play straight up and I’ll play straight up with you, I did not receive any questions from CNN, let’s just be very clear.
KELLY: Where did you get it? Where did you get it?
BRAZILE: First of all, what information are you providing to me that will allow me to see what — what you’re talking about? Everybody —
KELLY: You got the WikiLeaks released a March 12th Podesta email showing you messaging the Clinton campaign with the exact wording of a question asked at the March 13th —
BRAZILE: Kelly, Kelly, Kelly —
KELLY: — CNN/TV1 town hall debate. Where did you get it?
BRAZILE: You know, as a Christian woman, I understand persecution, but I will not sit here and be persecuted, because your information is totally false. What you’re telling the American people —
KELLY: I’m getting it from Podesta’s email.
BRAZILE: Well, Podesta emails were stolen. You’re so interested in talking about stolen —
KELLY: So you deny it?
BRAZILE: — material, you’re like — you’re like a thief that want to bring into the night the things that you found.
RUSH: (imitating Brazile) “You’re like a thief that want to bring into the night the things that you found that was stolen. The Russians did it, it was stolen, Kelly, it was stolen.” Does she think her name is Kelly Megyn? “Kelly! Kelly! I’m telling you, as a Christian woman I know what it is to be persecuted with stolen! Where you get it? I can’t see it, where you get it? You got it into the night!” This just classic. So Kelly then says, “Okay, well, who gave you the question?”
BRAZILE: Megyn, once again I’ve said it and I’ve said it on the record and I’ll say it on the record and I’ll keep saying it on the record. I am not going to try to validate falsified information. I have my documents. I have my files. As I said repeatedly, CNN, in the 14 years I was associated with CNN, I’ve never received anything. I’ve never get documents from CNN.
KELLY: In that email you offered the exact question that one of the moderators, Roland Martin, then proposed the next day.
BRAZILE: I can only tell you one thing, ’cause as you know, this whole episode is under criminal investigation. A lot of those emails I would not give them the time of the day. I’ve seen so many doctored emails.
RUSH: (imitating Brazile) “I’ve seen so many doctored emails in the middle of the night, the middle of the night, persecution, and I haven’t seen ’em, but I’ve seen a lot of ’em, and I don’t know what you’re talking about.” It’s just classic. I mean, you’ve got all the built in defensive techniques. “As I Christian I understand persecution. It’s stolen. It was in the night. It’s under investigation. You’re thieving me, and you’re demanding, I can’t even see what you got, Kelly.”
