Elizabeth Warren admits the Democratic Party was rigged against Bernie Sanders

In an excerpt from her book that was provided to Politico, Brazile explains how she was tasked with investigating the DNC after hacked emails suggested the Clinton campaign fixed the nomination.

Former Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Donna Brazile revealed groundbreaking information Thursday regarding the workings of the party during the 2016 election and nomination process.

She wrote: "By September 7, 2016, the day I called Bernie, I had found my proof and it broke my heart".

Brazille said she eventually discovered that Clinton had entered into a secret agreement with the Hillary Victory Fund, Hillary for America and the cash-strapped DNC that in exchange for raising funds Clinton "would control the party's finances, strategy, and all the money raised".

With the D.N.C. millions of dollars in debt after Barack Obama's 2012 re-election bid, the organization was in desperate need of cash, leaving the party with little choice but to rely on Clinton's donors to recapitalize. The campaign had the DNC on life support, giving it money every month to meet its basic expenses, while the campaign was using the party as a fund-raising clearing house, ' according to Brazile.

"Either he's going to succeed by bringing Bernie Sanders and Bernie Sanders' representatives into this process and they're going to say it's fair, it works, we all believe it", she stated.

Donna Brazile has torn open an old, persistent wound within the Democratic Party.

"What we've got to do as Democrats now is hold this party accountable", Warren said, adding that the current DNC chairman, former Labor Department Secretary Tom Perez is "being tested".

Sanders himself has somewhat toned down his criticism of the DNC during that span, but what he says - especially given he seems to want to run again in 2020 - will go a long way in determining how the party moves forward.
