Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Tom Perez refused to answer questions about whether the fundraising agreement between Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the DNC was fair during an interview on Tuesday.

Former interim DNC chair Donna Brazile revealed that the DNC and Clinton campaign had a joint fundraising argument that gave the Clinton campaign control over the Democratic Party’s finances, strategy, and personnel, and in return, the Clinton campaign would bail the DNC out of its financial debt.

Bloomberg News‘ Kevin Cirilli asked Perez whether he thought the controversial fundraising agreement between the DNC and Clinton campaign was appropriate.

“I have been out in Virginia for the last four days,” Perez began as he avoided answering the quesiton. “I put 700 miles on the car, and with all due respect, nobody is asking about what happened back in 2016. They are all moving forward.”

Cirilli interjected asking Perez if the fundraising agreement should have been allowed to happen.

“Again, the memorandum you referred to also has a very explicit clause that says this only applies to the general election,” Perez responded. “We have to build trust in the process….in everything we do, and I accept responsibility for that, and we have taken responsibility for that.”

Cirilli followed up by asking Perez if he thought the fundraising agreement was fair and whether a similar agreement will be allowed in 2020.

Again, Perez dodged Cirilli’s question about the fundraising agreement, making it the third dodged question of the interview.
