Senate Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi left a press conference without taking questions Thursday, the same day former interim Democratic National Committee (DNC) chair Donna Brazile blasted their party.
The minority leader’s decision to not take questions from the press comes the same day as a piece Brazile wrote for Politico, where the former interim DNC chair scorched the Democratic party including former President Barack Obama and Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Brazile claims Hillary has been controlling the DNC Victory Funds since before she got the nomination. Brazile also said the funding arrangement with HFA and the Victory Fund agreement was unethical and it compromised the party’s integrity.
Brazile cited “proof” on an agreement she discovered between two Clinton campaign funds and the DNC, in which money would be exchanged for control over DNC finances and strategy. Tapper asked Warren to speak into the DNC chairwoman’s statements.
“We’ve got to hold this party accountable,” Warren told Tapper. “When Tom Perez was elected to chair of the DNC, the very first conversation I had with him was to say, ‘You’ve got to put together a Democratic Party in which everybody can have confidence that the party is working for Democrats rather than Democrats working for the party.'”
“This is a test for Tom Perez,” Warren continued. “And either he’s going to succeed by bringing Bernie Sanders and Bernie Sanders’s representatives into the process, and they’re going to say it’s fair, it works, we all believe it, or he’s going to fail. And I very much hope he succeeds. I hope for Democrats everywhere. I hope for Bernie and all of Bernie’s supporters that he’s going to succeed.
Nancy Pelosi held a press conference to blast the Republican party’s tax plan claiming it’s a #BillionairesFirst plan which would ultimately be a nightmare for working families.
Instead of taking questions from the press afterwards like she normally does, she quickly walked off the stage.
Democrat corruption can only operate in darkness. As soon as they are exposed for their evil ways, they run and hide.
Tune in live as I discuss Speaker Ryan’s disastrous #BillionairesFirst tax plan and the nightmare it will create for America’s hard-working families.
