Warren Agrees With Trump: Election Was 'Rigged'

Potential 2020 White House contender Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., said Thursday she agrees with Donna Brazile's bombshell assertion the Democratic Party's 2016 primary was "rigged" in favor of Hillary Clinton.

In excerpts from Brazile's upcoming book, "Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House," the former interim chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee described an "unethical" agreement between Clinton and the DNC in which the candidate's campaign traded funding for increased control of the platform, Politico reported Thursday.

"The funding arrangement with [Hillary For America] and the victory fund agreement was not illegal, but it sure looked unethical," Brazile wrote, referring to Clinton's presidential campaign committee, Politico reported.

"If the fight had been fair, one campaign would not have control of the party before the voters had decided which one they wanted to lead," she added. "This was not a criminal act, but as I saw it, it compromised the party's integrity."

In remarks Thursday to CNN’s "The Lead" with Jake Tapper, Warren called Brazile's revelation "a real problem."

Then pressed on whether she believed the Democratic primary had been "rigged" in Clinton's favor, Warren replied: "Yes."

"What we've got to do as Democrats now is, we've got to hold this party accountable," she added.

President Donald Trump used the Brazile shocker to repeat his "crooked H" dig, tweeting Clinton "bought and paid" for the primary.
