- A new book from former DNC Chair Donna Brazile alleges that Hillary Clinton essentially hijacked the Democratic party and shut out her opponents out of the 2016 primary. Trump seized on this news with early morning tweets bashing Clinton for a litany of scandals and calling on the FBI to investigate her.
President Donald Trump on Friday weighed in on the latest round of infighting within the Democratic National Committee to again bash Hillary Clinton over a laundry list of past scandals and suggest the FBI investigate her.
“New Donna B book says she paid for and stole the Dem Primary,” Trump tweeted in one missive from his Friday morning tweetstorm, referring to former DNC leader Donna Brazile.
Brazile, in an excerpt from her upcoming book “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House” published in Politico, outlined how she said the Clinton campaign effectively hijacked and controlled the path to the Democratic nomination.
Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren later concurred that Clinton had indeed established an effective monopoly on the party.
“What about the deleted E-mails, Uranium, Podesta, the Server, plus, plus… People are angry. At some point the Justice Department, and the FBI, must do what is right and proper. The American public deserves it!” Trump tweeted.
The FBI, in declining to bring charges against Clinton, called her handling of her email server “extremely careless.”
During the campaign, Trump often accused Clinton of rigging the nomination process against her main challenger, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.
“The real story on Collusion is in Donna B’s new book. Crooked Hillary bought the DNC & then stole the Democratic Primary from Crazy Bernie!” Trump tweeted separately.
“Pocahontas just stated that the Democrats, lead by the legendary Crooked Hillary Clinton, rigged the Primaries!” Trump tweeted, referring to Elizabeth Warren by his nickname for her, Pocahontas. “Lets go FBI & Justice Dept,” Trump concluded.
