Donna Brazile: The Real Reason Hillary Clinton Is Not President is 'Russia'
Brazile says former secretary of state 'was the main victim of that attack'
Political analyst and strategist Donna Brazile told News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” that Hillary Clinton is not the president because “the country was attacked” by Russia.
Brazile, who still hasn't let go of the Russian collusion narrative, claimed Clinton "was the main victim of that attack.”
Former DNC interim chair Brazile was then asked about Hillary being the keynote speaker of a cybersecurity summit:
“Let me just say this; she understands the threat. I’m sure she will talk about the remedies and what we should do going forward.
"As a former secretary of state, she understands part of our arsenal to defend our nation is not just having bombs and all this other stuff.
"We have to have a good cybersecurity strategy.”
She continued, “The reason she’s not in the White House today is the country was attacked, and she was the main victim of that attack.”
Co-host Jedediah Bila challenged Brazile:
“A lot of voters feel she’s not in the White House because she lied about sending emails over an insecure server.
"She missed whole states; she decided not to go to certain states.”
“I agree there are also reasons number 1, number 2, number 3, but I guarantee you one of those three is because the Russians attacked the United States of America.”
The Democrat said Obama and administration did “everything they could” to deter interference from Russia.
"I think they did everything they could without sounding all of the alarm bells,” Brazile said.
“If Obama did more on Russian meddling, she said, critics would have accused him of trying to help his former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, in her race against then-candidate Donald Trump,” Fox News reported.
Clinton and the Russia blame game
Last year, Hillary discussed Russia's alleged hostile actions in the 2016 election:
“I think I was an obstacle to their plans to undermine and disrupt our democracy.
"I think I was an obstacle to their efforts to try to impose greater authoritarian control in Russia, go after people who were opponents of Putin’s, whether they were in the LGBTQ community or in the press, and I think that they wanted to get me out of the way.
"And the question I think is worth asking: why did they want to get me out of the way? What is it they are trying to accomplish now?”
