Former interim Democratic National Committee chairwoman admitted in a Time.com column on Friday that she did share CNN town hall topics with the Clinton campaign while employed by the network, and says that doing so was a mistake that she will never forget.
Brazile wrote about the WikiLeaks emails that led to her resignation from CNN:
“Then in October, a subsequent release of emails revealed that among the many things I did in my role as a Democratic operative and D.N.C. Vice Chair prior to assuming the interim D.N.C. Chair position was to share potential town hall topics with the Clinton campaign. I had been working behind the scenes to add more town hall events and debates to the primary calendar, and I helped ensure those events included diverse moderators and addressed topics vital to minority communities. My job was to make all our Democratic candidates look good, and I worked closely with both campaigns to make that happen. But sending those emails was a mistake I will forever regret.”
In November, Brazile denied that she was given any questions by CNN and lamented how the network treated her after the emails came to light:
“CNN never gave me a question. I wish CNN had given me some other things, like the ability to defend myself rather than ripping me a new one.”
