DNC Chair Brazile Says Question About WikiLeaks Emails Is ‘Persecution,’ Questioner ‘Like a Thief’

During the Fox News Channel’s coverage of Wednesday’s presidential debate Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Donna Brazile told anchor Megyn Kelly she was “like a thief” for asking about an email released by WikiLeaks showing Brazile giving the Clinton campaign a question from a CNN town hall in advance, and that “As a Christian woman, I understand persecution, but I will not sit her and be persecuted, because your information is totally false.”

Brazile denied that she received any questions from CNN in advance. After being asked where she got the question, Brazile asked for information “to allow me to see what you’re talking about?”

Kelly pointed to the WikiLeaks exchange showing her giving the exact wording of a question asked at a CNN town hall to the Clinton campaign.

Brazile then stated, “As a Christian woman, I understand persecution, but I will not sit her and be persecuted, because your information is totally false.”

She added, “Podesta’s emails were stolen. … You’re like a thief that want[s] to bring into the night the things that you have found that was in this data.”

Asked again who gave her the question, Brazile responded that she wasn’t going to validate “falsified information.”

She further stated, “[A]s far as I know, that, CNN has never provided me with questions, absolutely, ever.”

Brazile concluded that she wouldn’t give a lot of emails any time, and that she has seen “so many doctored emails. I have seen things that come from me, at 2 in the morning, that I don’t even send. There are several email addresses that I once used. And I’m so sorry that we have — this has not been verified. This is the — nobody will — this is under investigation.”
