DNC Chair Says Hillary Did No Wrong Selling State Dept Power For Donations: “We Often Criminalize Behavior That Is Normal”

Via Real Clear Politics:

RADDATZ: I want to move to The Clinton Foundation. There was major news about Secretary Clinton this week. Newly released e-mails obtained by ABC News show that Clinton Foundation officials looking for invitations for major donors to State Department events, including a presidential speech, including sitting next to Vice President Biden.

Do you see any problem with that — ?

BRAZILE: You know, based on what I have seen, I understand that there’s a — just a new round of fresh eyes looking at more e-mails that might be released. I’ve been dealing with another situation involving e-mails that were leaked, private information that has been put out in the public —

RADDATZ: Let’s stick with The Clinton Foundation —

BRAZILE: — well, I got to stick with what I know. I’m not an official of the State Department.

RADDATZ: — do you have a problem with that commingling?

BRAZILE: First of all, Martha, the way I look at it, I’ve been a government official. So, you know, this notion that, somehow or another, someone who is a supporter, someone who is a donor, somebody who’s an activist, saying I want access, I want to come into a room and I want to meet people, we often criminalize behavior that is normal. And it’s — I don’t — I don’t see what the smoke is.

I understand why it’s being discussed. But like I said, I’ve been dealing with another situation, another e-mail situation. The DNC was the victim of a cybercrime, an attack. And that has been my focus, not the focus of another round of e-mail controversies.

    Deny the truth by crying about the hack yet deflect attention away from the corruption found during said hack lifelong democrat but now I see why people hate my former party.

  • Gary M. Marino

    It isn’t that we often criminalize behavior that is Normal - It’s that Hitlery normalizes behavior that is Criminal.

    Asking for access versus SELLING access is the difference you moron!

    She should have been locked up YEARS ago..
    Mainstream LYING Media has been used as a BRAINWASHING WEAPON as far back as WW1 &2.. but it’s NOW wearing off and the PEOPLE are THINKING for themselves.
    She’s a criminal.. she shouldn’t even be a candidate.. she should be in prison with her husband and Obama.. and lest we forget the Bushs’ for all their contributions to DEATH of humanity both near & far.

    They’re ALL corrupt.. They can take their One World EVIL SATANIC Order and sit on it..
    Trump wants NATIONAL… borders and American’s first.. No pea-brain reporter can change that… Hillary wants to ‘continue’ where Obama left off x5 until America is destroyed and controlled by George Soros…
    There best be a REVOLUTION if they TRY TO PLACE HER IN THE WH.. if not..
    America will be lost forever!

    • djbarry

      Um, what are her crimes, exactly?

      • Jerry Allen Test

        IT MIGHT BE EASIER TO ASK,.. WHAT IS SHE NOT GUILTY OF!

        We know she has MURDER and TREASON STITCHED UP!

        • djbarry

          Okay, I’ll bite. Who did she murder?

          • John Long

            The one thing we can point to at the moment, is severely unethical behavior, Lying to the public, and gross negligence with classified material…(Which people of lesser power and money have gone to prison for)
            But remember there are a lot of Mafia families that were career criminals and murderers that managed to stay out of prison their whole lives…
            I’d say that she is in the same bracket as those people.
            But since you asked….just during this election cycle 5 people that were associated with her have either committed suicide or been killed on the street, but yet no belongings were taken, so robbery was not the motive…you take it from there.

  • Douglas Moose

    So, in Chicago, the “normality” of murder and other violence means we should decriminalize it there?

  • Brian

    Defending the indefensible. What a twatwaffle.

  • Don Gramza

    How about interviewing someone currently employed by the State Dept?? That way, you are not wasting my time with non-relevant people. Are you new at conducting interviews, or just obtuse????

    Hillary has ingrained her hateful campaign against Iran because she’s a millionaire by money given to her by criminal police - state monarchies, to continue encouraging more fracking by selling land in American to those companies exploiting mineral resources, such as prestigious forests, or Native American homelands.
    These hedgemonies like SAUDI ARABIA, UKRAINE, UAE, QUTAR have given her millions to prep her up for presidency-
    BOEING (the second biggest defense contractor of drones & weapons, in the US),* Barkley Capital, Goldman Sachs, Pfizer, Dow, Walmart, Monsantos, Cheveron, G.E., BANK OF AMERICA, CITIES GROUP, MORGAN STANLEY, UBS, Bank of California, & other massive news corporations have given her millions & thousands for her support of them to exploit corporate interests & big interests. She advocated for mass incarceration of African Blacks during whites exploiting what to do with BLACK racism in the south in the early 80s…she fought for Goldwater (at a young gullible age) who was backed by KKK Southerner way after the African Americans were fighting for civil rights, way after the freedom rights movements…AFTER THE historical speeches ” I have a dream” & all the marches singing “WE SHALL OVERCOME!”…
    SHE NEVER TOOK PART IN THE FREEDOM MOVEMENT—ONCE POSTING A PICTURE OF OBAMA IN A TURBIN, & LAUGHING AT A BLACK MAN BEING LYNCHED BY A HUGE GROUP OF WHITES IN A MOVIE FILM!-
    SHE WAS BOUGHT UP BY SOUTHERN PRINCIPLES OF HER FATHER—-& SHE CONTINUED EXPLOITING POOR FARMING BLACK PEOPLE IN OTHER COUNTRIES THAT BILL CLINTON & HILLARY BECAME RICH OFF-OF- DURING HIS CAMPAIGN, BY THEIR FOUNDATIONS BUT KEEPING POOR AFRICAN FARMERS POOR TO THIS DAY! HER TWO FAILED CRIMINAL BROTHERS—one of them during that time sat on the Board of Directors to keep this exploitation running smoothly.
    ☆DO NOT VOTE FOR CLINTON!☆
    *For the same reason our country invests money in Israel as Israel manufactures it’s own sophisticated drones to practice on the Palestinians & how effective the kills are-have sold drones to other countries for their killing capabilities!**NO MORE—-3.1—3.8 or 4.5 billion tax dollars to Israel YEARLY!-STOP CONGRESS!**

  • John Long

    So it has been proven that the DNC rigged the Primary Election, so I am wondering is that different than the actual election, or is there some other reason that the architect of that fraud is working directly for Hillary now, and not in jail?

  • cherylu2010

    More worried about the leak about the crime, than the crime itself. Wow. We live in strange times. I wonder if she understands what she is saying. Livint in some kind of bubble world.

  • John L. Battey

    The problem is that Democrats too often normalize behaviors that are criminal.
