“I’m going to tell my story.”
The implosion of the Democratic Party continues apace. Former DNC chair Donna Brazile appeared on “This Week” on Sunday and had some choice words for Democrats who are angry about the allegations she made in her new book about the rigged 2016 Democratic primary.
Members of Hillary’s failed campaign published an article on Medium on Saturday night accusing Brazile of spreading Russian propaganda:
Open Letter from Hillary for America 2016 Team
We were shocked to learn the news that Donna Brazile actively considered overturning the will of the Democratic voters by attempting to replace Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine as the Democratic Presidential and Vice Presidential nominees. It is particularly troubling and puzzling that she would seemingly buy into false Russian-fueled propaganda, spread by both the Russians and our opponent, about our candidate’s health.
Donna came in to take over the DNC at a very difficult time. We were grateful to her for doing so. She is a longtime friend and colleague of many of us and has been an important leader in our party. But we do not recognize the campaign she portrays in the book.
The 2016 presidential campaign was unlike any in our history. It was very difficult for our candidates and our staff. We are very proud that throughout the campaign and the aftermath the staff stuck together, worked as a team, and did the best we could for both Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine.
When George Stephanopoulos asked Brazile about this, she didn’t hold back.

Donna Brazile to Critics: “Go To Hell”
Do I regret taking on a job, for the second time in my life as chair of the party, cleaning up everybody’s mess, taking all of the incoming, being unable to spend the funds that I raised, being on the road 100% of the time, being hacked by the Russians, being harassed with death threats, do I regret any of that?
This was worse than Hurricane Katrina in terms of emotional toll, but do I regret standing up for what is right, helping Hillary Clinton, helping the Democratic Party, let me just say this: As somebody who went through a hacking experience, being able to tell the truth about what happened with the Russians, do i regret any of that? No, I wish I could have done more…
To those who are telling me to shut up, and were telling Hillary that a few months ago:
Go to hell.
I’m going to tell my story.

Does anyone think these rifts in the party will be healed by 2018 or 2020?
