Elizabeth Warren was nowhere to be found during the 2016 Democratic primary. She never came to the aid of Bernie Sanders. She only endorsed Hillary Clinton once she was safely the nominee.
Now that Donna Brazile has let the cat out of the bag about the rigging of the primary for Hillary Clinton, Elizabeth Warren is just shocked.
Mandy Mayfield of the Washington Examiner:
Elizabeth Warren: ‘Yes,’ the DNC was rigged to favor Hillary Clinton
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., responded with a firm “yes” to the question of whether she believed the Democratic National Committee was rigged to favor the presidential nomination of Hillary Clinton.
“Very quickly senator, do you agree with the notion that it was rigged?” CNN’s Jake Tapper asked.
Former DNC Chairwoman Donna Brazile said that that the Clinton campaign gained control of the DNC’s finances and operations to defeat Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., in the 2016 Democratic primary, according to a book excerpt published by Politico on Thursday.
Brazile cited “proof” on an agreement she discovered between two Clinton campaign funds and the DNC, in which money would be exchanged for control over DNC finances and strategy.
Paul Crookston of the Washington Free Beacon has more of her comments:
“This is a real problem, but what we’ve got to do is, Democrats now, we’ve got to hold this party accountable,” she said. “When Tom Perez was first elected chair of the DNC, the very first conversation I had with him is to say, you have got to put together a Democratic Party in which everybody can have confidence that the party is working for Democrats, rather than Democrats are working for the party.”
She said the test facing Perez will be to ensure a fair process for Sanders, who is not a Democrat, and his “representatives.”
“Either [Perez] is going to succeed by bringing Bernie Sanders and Bernie Sanders’ representatives into this process and they’re going to say it’s fair, it works, we all believe it, or he’s going to fail,” she said. “I hope for Democrats everywhere, I hope for Bernie and for all of Bernie’s supporters he’s going to succeed.”

Bernie supporters must be outraged by this. Where was this Elizabeth Warren during the primary?

Something has happened and it's very bad. To have them all turn on Queen Hillary at the same time is too coincidental. https://t.co/P84TztNfaI

Also, this Warren quote tweeted by Hillary didn’t age well…
