Ms. Brazile then called for an investigation into Mr. Trump's possible ties to Russian Federation while also stressing that her emails to Ms. Clinton's campaign were not a case of "playing favorites".
"And this week, Donna Brazile, that good Christian woman, finally finds redemption and confesses that she passed on debate questions to her girlfriend, Hillary, which didn't do Hillary much good, which shows you how bad Hillary really was as a candidate", Pirro said.
She explained, "I$3 n October, a subsequent release of emails revealed that among the many things I did in my role as a Democratic operative and D.N.C".
"Her family has lead poison and she will ask what, if anything, will Hillary do as president to help the ppl of Flint", wrote Brazile, who served as the Democratic National Committee's (DNC) interim chairwoman this past summer. "Despite the strong, public support I received from top Sanders campaign aides in the wake of those leaks, the media narrative played out just as the Russians had hoped, leaving Sanders supporters understandably angry and sowing division in our ranks".
Brazile lost her position at CNN as a contributor, and was harangued by the accusations throughout the campaign until the election, where Clinton lost the electoral count but garnered more votes than Trump in the popular vote.
Despite her partial contrition, however, Brazile framed her admission in the Time essay with blaming the government of Russian Federation for Donald Trump's victory in the general election. Bernie Sanders, D-Vt.
In an email to Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri dated March 12, 2016, Brazile wrote in the subject header, "From time to time I get the questions in advance". After Palmieri responded, Brazile wrote back: "I'll send a few more".
So, Brazile is anxious that it looks like she was showing favoritism to Clinton, not that she was subverting the veracity of the news organization she worked for, the fairness of the democratic process, and the journalism she now wants to hold Trump accountable.
"CNN never gave me a question".
"I have not opened up any of the Wikileaks". I'm not John Podesta.
The WikiLeaks hack, Brazile said, is evidence that there must be a continued investigation into Russia's interference in the presidential election. "Your information is totally false".
The leaks occurred while Brazil was working for the cable news station, which immediately cut ties with her when the scandal broke.
