"From time to time I get the questions in advance," current DNC Chair, Donna Brazile, wrote to Jennifer Palmieri, Hillary Clinton's Campaign Communications Director. Brazile's email was sent March 12th, the day before the 9th debate in the Democratic Primary aired on CNN.

This and another key email from the John Podesta email dumps provided by Wikileaks expose Brazile's unethical activities - in effect "rigging" the debates by providing her candidate with the questions in advance. CNN's reputation was tarnished given Brazile's paid status as a "CNN Contributor" which ought to raise the question of news entities having political operatives on their payroll in the first place. But Brazile's ethical transgressions go beyond her association with a major television news outlet. As then Vice Chair of the Democratic National Committee Brazile was prohibited from acting on behalf of any particular candidate prior to the Convention formally nominating the Party's choice. Brazile, now the Interim Chair following Debbie Wasserman-Schultz's disgraced exit following similar Wikileaks revelations, is now in charge of enforcing the Party's "Neutrality Clause" (Article V, Section IV of the DNC Charter). [See]

"I rarely hear it. I'll send a few more," added Brazile, indicating that this email would be followed up by further advance disclosures of the debate questions. ("I rarely hear it" was a reference to Clinton's stock position/statement on the death penalty - an issue of concern for the campaign and the topic of this particular question).

Brazile, despite the unambiguous evidence, not only pulled the Russia-baiting deception in response, but outright attempted to deny both that she improperly used her DNC position to favor Clinton (her response was she emailed both candidates) and that she provided Clinton the questions in violation of her position with CNN.

We know from another scandolous leaked email from the Podesta files that this was not the first time Brazile did this.

This email was sent on March 5th ... the day before the seventh primary debate - a Town Hall in Flint, Michigan. The subject matter was again of prime concern for the campaign as it had to do with Clinton's response to and positions on the Flint Water Scandal. The Campaign was scrambling to work out, as is seen in the Podesta emails during this week, Hillary's response to this issue in general. What we now know is that the private citizen who asked this Town Hall question, Lee Ann Walters, was still not satisfied with the prepped answer Clinton gave live during the Town Hall "debate." (SEE:

Again the emails themselves speak volumes that cannot be silenced by party-speak propaganda and sleight-of-hand tricks of sophistic rhetoric. The emails provide details such as verbatim text of the question as read and details, as in this, of the person submitting and asking the question.

So the question, in light of Brazile's angry outbursts feigning denial, is will there be further emails released from the Podesta dumps revealing her delivering upon her promise to "send a few more"?

Analysis of the database and what has been released suggest that there is a possibility of this. But if any there won't be many - at least directly from Brazile's account itself.

One person cannot change it all - but it takes at least one person to change the world. I've tried at least.
