The former campaign manager for Sen. Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign said he had no idea that Hillary Clinton’s campaign was effectively running the Democratic National Committee months before Clinton secured the Democratic nomination.
That revelation was made in a new book from former DNC Chair Donna Brazile, who said Clinton’s campaign took complete control of the DNC when it still wasn’t clear Clinton would be the nominee.
Brazile called that situation “unethical,” and said it amounted to “corruption” in her mind when she discovered it.
“It was obviously a shocking revelation,” Jeff Weaver, who ran Sanders’ campaign, said on CNN Friday.
“It was pretty clear that they were on the Clinton side … I don’t think any of us imagined that there was actually a formal arrangement giving the Clinton campaign control of the DNC,” he said.
Sanders supporters complained that the DNC was in the tank for Clinton all along, a suspicion that Brazile seemed to confirm on Thursday.
Weaver said he has talked to Sanders about it, but said in terms of next steps, Sanders’ team would continue to work with members of Clinton’s team and others to reform the DNC in time for the 2020 election.
