The latest Wikileaks dump of includes communication between now-interim Democratic National Committee chairwoman Donna Brazile forwarding the Clinton campaign information about Bernie Sanders when she worked as the DNC’s vice chair during the Democratic primary.


Brazile sent the Clinton team information in January 2016 an email from the Sanders camp, originally sent by Sarah Ford, Sanders’ deputy national press secretary, declaring they’re having a “Twitterstorm” for the Vermont senator’s African-American outreach team.

“FYI” Brazile wrote to the Clinton team. “Thank you for the heads up on this Donna,” replied Clinton campaign spokesperson Adrienne Elrod.

Prior Monday and Tuesday’s most recent Podesta e-mail dumps,  Brazile told The Daily Caller on Sunday night she had not seen of the Wikileaks e-mails and pointed the finger at Russia as the culprit behind the “cybercrime.”

Brazile’s predecessor, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, was forced out of the DNC chair position back in August when the DNC email server hack revealed her own collusion with the Clinton campaign.
