Nearly 100 members of Hillary Clinton’s campaign team blasted Donna Brazile’s take on the 2016 presidential election and her reported consideration of removing Clinton from the Democratic ticket.

"She is a longtime friend and colleague of many of us and has been an important leader in our party," the staffers wrote of the former interim chair of the Democratic National Committee in an open letter published Saturday night on the website Medium. "But we do not recognize the campaign she portrays in the book."

Senior members John Podesta, Robby Mook and Huma Abedin signed the letter.

Brazile in her book says she was weighing replacing Clinton and running mate Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia with Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey after Clinton fainted during a Sept. 11 commemoration ceremony in New York last year. She called the fact that she and everyone else had not been told of Clinton's health "shameful."

Brazile then backpedaled.

"I thought of Hillary, and all the women in the country who were so proud of and excited about her. I could not do this to them," she writes.

The Trump campaign used Clinton's health to question whether she had the stamina to stay in office.

"It is particularly troubling and puzzling that she would seemingly buy into false Russian-fueled propaganda, spread by both the Russians and our opponent, about our candidate's health," the former campaign officials said in the letter.

Brazile's book "Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House," is scheduled to be released Tuesday.
