Former interim chair of Democratic National Committee (DNC) Donna Brazile admitted that the DNC had made investments on behalf of Hillary Clinton’s campaign during the Democratic primary on Monday.

Brazile was on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” to tout her new book, “Hacks,” which makes several startling revelations about how the DNC rigged the 2016 Democratic primary in favor of Clinton.

In a recent Politico op-ed, Brazile revealed the existence of a joint fundraising agreement between Clinton’s campaign and the DNC, which allowed the Clinton campaign to have input on how the DNC spent its funds during the 2016 presidential election.

The Clinton campaign alleges that this agreement was only for the general election and not the Democratic primary.

NBC’s Willie Geist asked Brazile if this claim by the Clinton campaign was indeed true or if the DNC used those funds from the joint fundraising agreement during the Democratic primary to help the Clinton campaign.

“The paper said the general election. What I found was that they had already started to make investments in technology, in research, and in communications,” Brazile responded. “By hiring consultants to start doing that, by beginning the general election process before a nominee is chosen, I found that unacceptable and in the book, I used the word ‘unethical.'”

Geist asked Brazile if this put Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) at a disadvantage during the Democratic primary.

“I believe it put the democratic process under the spotlight. Whether you’re Martin O’Malley, Bernie Sanders, Lincoln Chafee or Jim Webb, that’s not fair,” Brazile told Geist.

“Was it a fair fight, yes or no,” Geist asked Brazile.

“I believe it was a fair fight. Ultimately the voters decided,” Brazile responded.

MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough immediately interjected that they doubted that the Democratic primary was a fair fight.

Geist followed up by again asking Brazile whether the Democratic primary was a fair fight, citing Brazile’s previous suggestion that the financial agreement gave Clinton an advantage.

“It gave her a strategic advantage on starting the general election internally,” Brazile said.
