DNC Meeting: Staffer Accuses Brazile of Being 'Part of the Problem'

DNC Meeting: Staffer Accuses Brazile of Being 'Part of the Problem'

A Democratic National Committee staff member yelled at interim chief Donna Brazile during a meeting Thursday, alleging her actions helped Donald Trump win the presidency.

According to The Huffington Post, a staffer named Zach asked Brazile a question while she was providing a post-election update to roughly 150 employees of the organization.

"Why should we trust you as chair to lead us through this?" the man asked, reports the Post. "You backed a flawed candidate, and your friend [former DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz] plotted through this to support your own gain and yourself."

Brazile came under fire recently for leaking questions to the Clinton campaign ahead of a Democratic primary debate in March. At the time, she was working for both the DNC and as a commentator for CNN, which hosted the debate in question.

CNN cut ties with Brazile after the story was made public last month.

On Thursday after the staffer named Zach posed his question to Brazile, he declined to let her answer and continued to speak, reports the Post.

"You are part of the problem," he said. "You and your friends will die of old age and I'm going to die from climate change. You and your friends let this happen, which is going to cut 40 years off my life expectancy."

He then left the room.

Wasserman Schultz resigned from her post over the summer after hacked emails released by WikiLeaks showed the party favored Clinton over Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders as its nominee.

Brazile declined to comment to the Post about Thursday's incident, saying, "As you can imagine, the individual involved is a member for the staff and I personally do not wish to discuss our internal meetings."
