Fox News Channel's Sean Hannity discussed on his show Thursday night former Democratic National Committee chairwoman Donna Brazile's claim that her party rigged the Democratic presidential primary in favor of Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders. In an article on POLITICO that excerpted her new book “Hacked,” Brazile alleges that Clinton that in exchange for raising funds for the DNC from Hillary Victory Fund and Hillary for America, Clinton would thus “would control the party’s finances, strategy, and all the money raised.”
Hannity reacted, saying, "This shows just how low the Clintons will go to get what they want," adding that it was a "rigged and stolen election."
On Thursday evening, President Donald Trump tweeted his disgust over the revelations. The president wrote, “Donna Brazile just stated the DNC RIGGED the system to illegally steal the Primary from Bernie Sanders. Bought and paid for by Crooked Hillary...This is real collusion and dishonesty. Major violation of Campaign Finance Laws and Money Laundering - where is our Justice Department?”
Hannity said, "This Clinton crime family - because that's what they really are - and their political machine [were] willing to put all ethics aside, do nothing, anything, everything they could do to mow down ... anybody that stood in their way." Hannity said that if there had been evidence that Trump had rigged the Republican primary, the "alt-left mainstream media" would have demanded investigations. "This is by far the worst thing - and I've covered the Clintons for years - they have ever done," Hannity said. He called former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton "the most unethical person I have ever seen in my entire life."
"This disgrace will follow her the rest of her life."
