Fiery Megyn Kelly Grills DNC Chair on Allegation of Leaked Town Hall Question
Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Donna Brazile reacted to allegations from a WikiLeaks-released hacked email that apparently showed her receiving a question for Hillary Clinton prior to a primary town hall debate.
"You had this question on March 12 that verbatim was provided by Roland Martin to CNN the next day," Megyn Kelly said.
Brazile maintained she never got any questions from CNN ahead of the event.
"You got the [John] Podesta email showing you messaging the Clinton campaign with the exact wording of a question asked at the March 13th CNN town hall debate," Kelly responded.
"As a Christian woman, I understand persecution. But I will not sit here and be persecuted because your information is totally false," she answered.
Brazile then countered that she does not trust the authenticity of the messages in the emails because they were stolen before being released by WikiLeaks.
"So you deny it?" Kelly asked, noting that her former colleague at CNN, Jake Tapper, called the apparent exchange "unethical".
"I am not going to try to validate falsified information. I have my documents. I have my files, thank God I have not had my personal emails ripped off from me...and given to some criminals to come back altered," she said.
"I never get [questions] from CNN," she said.
