Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) contradicted her earlier statement that the 2016 Democratic presidential primary was rigged, now telling MassLive that the contest was “fair.”

Warren’s walk-back puts her in a precarious position as the far-left remains livid over allegations from Donna Brazile that the Clinton campaign had stacked the deck against Bernie Sanders.

She did maintain that the Democratic National Committee “may have shown ‘bias’ in 2016.”

Warren, who has become a high-profile figure in Democratic Party politics, largely dismissed claims that the DNC essentially “rigged” the primary and nomination process to benefit Clinton.

The senator contended Wednesday that although she agrees with things former DNC interim Chairwoman Donna Brazile has alleged in her new book, she thinks the 2016 contest between Democratic candidates was fair — an assertion which appeared to contrast her previous remarks on the subject.

“I agree with what Donna Brazile has said over the last few days; that while there was some bias at the DNC, the overall 2016 primary process was fair and Hillary made history,” she said in an interview.

If Warren decides to run in 2020, she may find backlash from the left over her refusal to fully criticize the DNC.
