CNN has parted ways with Donna Brazile, the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee and a longtime contributor, after leaked emails revealed she shared debate questions with Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
In a statement issued Monday, the network said it was “completely uncomfortable” with her actions.
“On October 14th, CNN accepted Donna Brazile’s resignation as a CNN contributor,” a spokesman said. “CNN never gave Brazile access to any questions, prep material, attendee list, background information or meetings in advance of a town hall or debate.”
“We are completely uncomfortable with what we have learned about her interactions with the Clinton campaign while she was a CNN contributor.” (RELATED: Donna Brazile Shared Additional Debate Questions With Clinton Campaign, Identified Her Tipster)
The emails, which were hacked from Podesta’s Gmail account, reveal that Brazile provided town hall questions to the the Democratic nominee’s campaign for a debate in March that was co-hosted by CNN and TV One.
She also shared a question with them from a debate hosted by CNN the week prior.
On Sunday, Brazile tweeted “let this end soon.”
Please God, let this end soon
