Fox News’ Tucker Carlson went at CNN for the second night in a row, revealing that in an editorial call, CNN head Jeff Zucker was “fuming” and “enraged” over Donna Brazile’s revelations that made the Clinton camp look bad.


The Daily Caller co-founder recalled how in an article for Politico, former DNC interim chair Donna Brazile “described how the  Hillary Clinton campaign basically took over the DNC during the Democratic primaries. The next day, which was last Friday, CNN chief Jeff Zucker held a conference call with some of his senior programming staff. He had seen Brazile’s Politico piece and according to a very good source was ‘fuming’ and ‘enraged.'”

“‘Brazile is a liar,’ he said, and suggested that CNN’s news shows should demonstrate that she is. At least one participant on that call described plans to have Donna Brazile on CNN, and in fact CNN producers did try to book Donna Brazile. So far she has not appeared on the network. That is all factual. We await CNN’s denial of any of it,” he added.

This comes after Tucker revealed Monday that CNN was instructing its staff to discredit Brazile in response to the former interim DNC head making Hillary Clinton look bad. (RELATED: Tucker Reveals CNN Told Hosts To Discredit Donna Brazile To Cover For Clinton [VIDEO])

Carlson also teased his upcoming interview with Donna Brazile on his show on Fox News Channel Wednesday night.
