Donna Brazile Dedicates Book To "Patriot" Seth Rich

After a leaked excerpt from her new book “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House” revealed that Donna Brazile feared for her life after the murder of former DNC employee Seth Rich, Axios has reported that Brazile provides more grist for what her former political allies have dismissed as “right wing conspiracy theories” in the book’s introduction.

Nestled among the usual platitudes about thanking friends and family, Brazile dedicates her book to Rich’s memory, describing him as a close colleague and “patriot”.

Rich was murdered in July 2016, two weeks before Wikileaks released a trove of emails stolen from the DNC’s servers that, among other embarrassing details, suggested that the DNC was engaged in widespread rigging of the 2016 Democratic primary to favor “front-runner” Hillary Clinton.

“In loving memory of my father, Lionel Brazile Sr.; my beloved sister, Sheila Brazioutlanle; my fearless uncles Nat, Floyd, and Douglas; Harlem’s finest, my aunt Lucille; my friend and mentor, David Kaufmann; my DNC colleague and patriot, Seth Rich; and my beloved Pomeranian, Chip Joshua Marvin Brazile (Booty Wipes). I miss y’all."

Rich, 27, a former data analyst at the DNC, was fatally shot while walking home late at night in Washington, D.C. The police believe the shooting was a robbery gone wrong. But Brazile says in her book that she was “haunted” by Rich’s death because she feared shadowy elements associated with the Clinton campaign may have played a role in his death as retribution for leaking the emails.

As Newsweek points out, media reports had characterized Rich as a low-level staffer, and his parents wrote in an opinion piece for The Washington Post in May claiming the idea that their son leaked the emails to Wikileaks was ridiculous because his position didn’t grant him access to sensitive data.

Brazile mentioned Rich during a Sunday appearance on ABC News’s This Week with George Stephanopouloson Sunday. She told the host about her critics: “They don’t know what it was like to be over the DNC during this hacking. They don’t know what it’s like to bury a child. I did: Seth Rich."

During the interview, Brazile softened her claims that the DNC rigged the primary (though, tellingly, party leaders have said they will reexamine the role of “joint-fundraising agreements” which Brazile alleged helped the Clinton campaign assert financial dominance over the DNC). She also said that her critics in the party can “go to hell."

"I'm not on the payroll, George. I care about my country. I care about our democracy," Brazile said. "And I say go to hell, because why am I supposed to be the only person that is unable to tell my story?"

Through spokesman Brad Bauman, the Rich family said in a statement, “Since Seth was murdered, Donna Brazile has been a great friend to the Rich family and has been extremely supportive of the family’s efforts to find Seth’s killers."

Of course, Democrats have lined up to rebut Brazile’s claims. More than 100 former Clinton campaign aids signed an open letter accusing Brazile of falling for “Russia-fueled propaganda” in what appears to be a feeble attempt to discredit her.

Already, a trove of bombshell allegations included in the book have been widely reported thanks to leaked excerpts, and a teaser chapter that Brazile published as an essay in Politico. For example, Brazile revealed that she considered replacing Clinton and running mate Tim Kaine with Joe Biden and Corey Booker after Clinton fainted at the 9/11 memorial. She also levied accusations of sexism and racism at former Clinton staffers, and - most shockingly of all - revealed that the Clinton campaign took advantage of Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s absentee leadership of the party to make the DNC financially dependent on Clinton.

hacking didn't "put Trump in the White House" as she puts it.  A vast majority of voters in all the right states who hated the corrupt and treasonous Hillary Clinton are who put Trump in the White House with a landslide number of Electoral College votes. Hillary being a scumbag and the corrupt DNC rigging their own primaries and the endless list of other lies, corruptions, broken laws, treason, murder, etc. etc. etc. are what "put Trump in the White House" along with Trump vowing to do a lot of good things most American people wanted done....one of which was to clean the swamp and put Hillary and many others in prison for a very long time.And it looks like that very well may happen.

I am actually thinking about buying her book. It takes a lot of guts to publicly go against Hillary and her nefarious back stabbing minions. So what if Brazille is a Dem? Haven't we always said here there is only 1 party, and that we shouldn't get caught up in the 2 party division meme? Wouldn't everyone be cheering a Republican who wrote a book like this?

Now that I've thought about this a bit, this might be a cunning maneuver that actually hurts the reds.The Clintons have been treasonous thugs for literally DECADES and the blues and MSM don't give the slightest fuck about any of it. Brazile's book has put a big spotlight on poor Seth Rich and the circumstances surrounding his murder.If the red team, with all their majorities, does nothing about this, as usual, well you get the picture.

Now she's just fucking with us.  Either she's making a very public statement to the Clinton camp that if anything happens to her she's got the goods on the Seth Rich murder to nail them...or she's using it to foment controversy and awareness to sell more books.  If it's to sell books she's a scumbag...if it's awareness of a murder, she's an accomplice and validating every conspiracy theory for the past 50 years that the government will kill to keep it's secrets.  Come on Donna...clear your conscience and let's bring down the Clinton shitshow once and for all.

Maybe, but she must have thought long & hard about setting all those bridges on fire. While she probably got a nice, fat advance, she had to know exactly what she was doing, and can never go back. She, has been a warrior for the Blue causes for 30 years, and rose from the trenches as a true believer. What she saw during the election process obviously caused her to do a lot of soul searching. I think what we have is a highly pissed woman scorned. She seems to have reached the “I’m mad as hell, and I’m not going to take it anymore.”

"And it looks like that very well may happen."I will believe it when I see them being perp walked into prison.  Until then, I'd still say its long long odds, that any of these people spend any time in prison.  Who's the last person involved in all of this thats made it to prison?  Only Anthony Weiner, and only because he couldn't keep his snake in the cage.

If I had the extra money, I would buy Donna’s book, in addition to Ann Coulter’s book “Adios America.” These are likely two very different books, lamenting the state of this country from different angles without mincing words. Like a lot of former Democrats, I would have enjoyed telling the DNC (Democrat Neoliberal Club) to go to h-e-double-tooth-pick, as we say in the South. A lot of people want to say it. Donna said it in the public square. Go Donna! Keep leaving the corporate-owned sycophants in the MSM agog. The DNC = a bunch of globalist careerists on the other side of the Uniparty.
