Election HQ Baier: New WikiLeaks Contradict What Brazile Told Megyn Kelly After Debate
Today on Your World, Bret Baier offered Neil Cavuto an update on the scandal now surrounding interim Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Donna Brazile, due to WikiLeaks email revelations.
Brazile previously worked in a capacity for CNN, before being chosen to replace Rep. Deborah Wasserman-Schultz (D-Fla.), who resigned in July, prior the party's convention.
However, newly-disclosed email conversations show that Brazile allegedly gave the Clinton campaign advance notice of questions that would be asked of the former secretary of state in a CNN forum.
"Megyn Kelly questioned her [after the debate moderated by Fox's Chris Wallace] about the WikiLeaks email [that mentioned her]," Baier said she was "seen providing the Hillary Clinton campaign a specific, detailed question that would be asked... at a CNN town hall."
Baier recalled how Brazile told Kelly she was instead the subject of persecution, and that she cast doubt over the email because it may have been adulterated by the Russians.
"Well, now, today, WikiLeaks is out with other emails--if [Brazile] gets more of these [questions], she'll send them on."
"She sends the question to a CNN debate to the Clinton campaign before it happened, one week earlier, in Flint, Michigan," Baier said, "basically saying in this email that she did what she [told Kelly] she didn't do."
Baier also said that, in a previously-unaired portion of an interview with Donald Trump and Gov. Mike Pence, hours before the FBI's announcement last week, the Republican nominee remarked that if RNC Chairman Reince Priebus "got caught like Donna Brazile had", per the interview with Kelly, "it would be the biggest story".
Trump told Baier that Brazile should resign from the DNC, the anchor of Special Report said.
