Donna Brazile worked on the political campaigns of Jesse Jackson, Walter Mondale-Geraldine Ferraro and Dick Gephardt before serving as the Chair of the Democratic National Committee.
Brazile made headlines after the 2016 election when she said that Hillary Clinton had worked to rig the DNC presidential nomination in 2016.
In a move that surprised me, Brazile has become a contributor to Fox News.
While appearing on The Daily Briefing, Brazile defended the Obama administration and said they did everything they could handle the Russian attempts to influence the election.

Breitbart – Donna Brazile Defends Obama over Russian Meddling in 2016 Election: ‘Did Everything They Could’ – Longtime Democrat operative and newly minted Fox News contributor Donna Brazile defended former President Barack Obama and his administration over Russia meddling in the 2016 presidential election, saying she believes they did “everything they could.”
“I think they did everything they could without sounding all of the alarm bells,” Brazile said on Fox News’s The Daily Briefing.
“If Obama did more on Russian meddling, she said, critics would have accused him of trying to help his former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, in her race against then-candidate Donald Trump,” Fox News reported.
“He was in a box,” Brazile said of the former president.
“Perhaps President Trump is in a box,” she added, before calling for action to prevent future meddling…
If Brazile is telling the truth, then please explain why it wasn’t a big deal until AFTER Trump won the election?
There were numerous reports indicating that the Obama administration knew about the Russian attempts to influence the 2016 months before the election took place.
Personally, I believe that the Obama administration did little to nothing to stop the Russians from interfering in the 2016 election because they were so convinced that Clinton that would win.
