WASHINGTON — Another leaked email from WikiLeaks showed Democratic National Committee chairwoman Donna Brazile shared a debate question in advance with the Hillary Clinton campaign.
According to documents released Monday, Brazile sent Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri an email titled, “One of the questions directed to HRC tomorrow is from a woman with a rash,” the night before the March 6 primary debate in Flint, Mich.
“Her family has lead poison and she will ask what, if anything, will Hillary do as president to help the ppl of Flint,” Brazile wrote.
The next night, a mother whose twin boys stopped growing and whose daughter lost her hair during the Flint, Mich., water contamination crisis, ased a question to Clinton and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.
“After my family, the city of Flint and the children in D.C. were poisoned by lead, will you make a personal promise to me right now that, as president, in your first 100 days in office, you will make it a requirement that all public water systems must remove all lead service lines throughout the entire United States, and notification made to the — the citizens that have said service lines?” Lee-Anne Walters asked.
WikiLeaks has been releasing emails from the Clinton campaign after hacking into camapign chairman John Podesta’s Gmail account.
An earlier email showed how Brazile tipped off the campaign about a question at a town hall event later in March.
That exchange showed Brazile sending Palmieri the text of a question about the death penalty with the subject line: “From time to time I get the questions in advance.”
After Palmieri responded, Brazile wrote back: “I’ll send a few more.”
The question was asked verbatim the next night.
Brazile was a CNN contributor at the time but took over as interim DNC chairwoman in July. After the email revelation, she resigned Oct. 14.
“We are completely uncomfortable with what we have learned about her interactions with the Clinton campaign while she was a CNN contributor,” the network said in a statement.
