**CNN severs ties with Donna Brazile**

CNN says it is "completely uncomfortable" with hacked emails showing that former contributor and interim Democratic National Committee chairwoman Donna Brazile shared questions with the Clinton campaign before a debate and a town hall during the Democratic primary, and has accepted her resignation.

Hacked emails posted by WikiLeaks show Brazile, whose CNN contract was suspended when she became interim DNC chair over the summer, sharing with the Clinton campaign a question that would be posed to Hillary Clinton before the March CNN Democratic debate in Flint, as well as a possible question prior to a CNN town hall, also in March.

In a statement, CNN spokeswoman Lauren Pratapas said that on Oct. 14, the network accepted Brazile’s resignation.

9. He's also not identified as a Trump spokesperson by CNN.

Which is what he is.

7. IF she did give the questions to Hillary then I see why

They've allowed far shittier stuff but they've got a point with this.

I'm glad she left those media whores anyway.

10. Ok, but why the silence on the main issue?

 

Brazile, with the knowledge of the Clinton camp, engaged in activities which "undermined our democracy," yet nobody wants to discuss it on this site?

How would this site respond if it was known Trump got questions ahead of time? Shame on all of you. We should be able to question our leaders, for good and for bad, and any site which suppresses such discussion is contributing to the problem.
