CNN’s Wolf Blitzer said Thursday that it’s “shocking” that Hillary Clinton rigged the Democratic National Committee to secure her own presidential nomination.
Of course, Bernie Sanders supporters have long alleged that the primary was rigged in favor of Hillary Clinton, and former DNC chair Donna Brazile — who finally revealed the rigging — was at one point caught feeding debate questions to Clinton.
In an interview with Democratic Indiana Rep. Andre Carson, Blitzer contended that it’s a “shocking revelation” that Clinton essentially bought off the DNC in exchange for control of the party’s finances and strategy.
Rep. Carson seemed unbothered by the story, stating that he thinks Brazile is “brilliant” and looks forward to reading her book.
Blitzer expanded on the implications of the revelation to the congressman, explaining that the DNC is not supposed to take sides in a presidential nomination process. But Carson contended he knows nothing about the deal.
