When asked by CNN’s Jake Tapper if she believed the Democratic primary was rigged in favor of Clinton – Warren replied with a simple ‘Yes’.
Tapper was asking Warren about former Democratic National Committee (DNC) chairwoman Donna Brazile’s new book in which she says she found evidence that Clinton’s campaign fixed the Democratic nomination system in her favor.
In an excerpt from her book that was provided to Politico – Brazile explains how she was tasked with investigating the DNC after hacked emails suggested the Clinton campaign fixed the nomination.
Brazile said she discovered an agreement between the DNC – the Clinton campaign and Clinton’s joint fundraising committee that said the campaign would ‘control the party’s finances – strategy and all the money it raised’.
The agreement was signed in August 2015 – almost a full year before Clinton became the party’s official nominee.
Warren said the allegations are a ‘real problem’ and called on new DNC chairman Tom Perez to unite the party.
