Former DNC chairwoman Donna Brazile said on Tuesday that she was told just before the election that she “did not need to know” about the infamous Steele dossier project financed by the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign.
Appearing on “The View,” Brazile was asked whether she was aware that the DNC was providing partial funding for the report, which was commissioned by opposition research firm Fusion GPS.
Brazile gave a jumbled response, but said that she asked a question about the investigation on Nov. 4, several days before the election.
“I asked one question on November 4th, and I was told that I did not need to know, and so no, I did not know,” Brazile told Meghan McCain, a host on the ABC show.
Brazile said she was kept in the dark about the dossier because “I did not control my money.” Brazile, who was appointed interim DNC chair in the summer of 2016, published a book on Tuesday that blasts the Democratic party for allowing the Clinton campaign to control its finances.
