Former Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Donna Brazile told the women of ABC’s “The View” on Tuesday that she was told that “[she] did not need to know” about the DNC’s work with Fusion GPS in the run-up to the 2016 election.

Asked by Meghan McCain if she knew the DNC was funding the infamous Russian dossier, Brazile responded: “I asked one question on November 4th, and I was told that I did not need to know because I did not control my money.”

Brazile said that she did not see Fusion GPS on the list of DNC expenditures.

Pressed on the morality of using Fusion GPS, who paid Russian sources for information, the former DNC chair stayed mum, only saying non-citizens should have no role in U.S. politics.

“I was not involved in the hiring of this firm. I did not know about the existence of this contract,” she said.

Brazile then defended the practice of opposition research and compared the Fusion GPS contract to Donald Trump, Jr.’s meeting with Russians in Trump Tower in June 2016.
