Donna Brazile, who was fired from her contributor role at CNN in 2016 after it was revealed she gave debate questions to Hillary Clinton’s campaign, wrote a blistering op-ed about her former organization, the Democratic National Committee (DNC), for Politico Magazine on Thursday.

Brazile, who stepped into the role of interim DNC chair after Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) was forced to resign, revealed the poor state of a DNC that was in grave debt and completely run by the Clinton campaign when she took it over in mid-2016.

What’s more, though, Brazile attacked just about every major figure in the Democratic Party, laying blame at their feet for the DNC’s current, sorry state.

Here’s a list of who she blames in a short op-ed for Politico:

  • Former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz: “had not been the most active chair in fundraising … Debbie was not a good manager … In my experience she didn’t come to the officers of the DNC for advice and counsel. … She had stuck lots of consultants on the DNC payroll … I knew that Debbie had outsourced a lot of the management of the party and had not been the greatest at fundraising.”
  • Former President Barack Obama: “President Barack Obama’s neglect had left the party in significant debt … Obama left the party $24 million in debt … Obama’s consultants were being financed by the DNC, too.”
  • Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton: “As Hillary’s campaign gained momentum, she resolved the party’s debt and put it on a starvation diet … Clinton’s headquarters in Brooklyn [did] as it desired … Hillary’s campaign was grabbing money from the state parties for its own purposes … Hillary would control the party’s finances, strategy, and all the money raised … I had visited states around the country and I found a lack of enthusiasm for her everywhere”
  • Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook: “[Brazile:] ‘You’re telling me that Hillary has been controlling it since before she got the nomination?’ … ‘That was the deal that Robby struck with Debbie,’ [Clinton CFO Gary Gensler] explained, referring to campaign manager Robby Mook.”
  • Amy Dacey, the former CEO of the DNC: “The agreement—signed by Amy Dacey, the former CEO of the DNC, and Robby Mook with a copy to Marc Elias—specified that in exchange for raising money and investing in the DNC, Hillary would control the party’s finances, strategy, and all the money raised.”
  • The Obama coalition and millennials: “I had to be frank with him. I did not trust the polls, I said. I told him I had visited states around the country and I found a lack of enthusiasm for her everywhere. I was concerned about the Obama coalition and about millennials.”

Brazile’s new book, “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns that Put Donald Trump in the White House,” will be published on November 7. It’s sure to spread some more blame around.
