An email published Wednesday suggests that the interim chair of the Democratic National Committee had the text of a proposed question before a town hall event with Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders earlier this year.
Donna Brazile, the chair, is then thought to have shared the question with the Clinton campaign.
The email, which was provided to Politico, contains the exact wording of a question that one of the town-hall moderators, TV One’s Roland Martin, sent to CNN producers before the town hall. It matches the language in an email Brazile sent to the Clinton campaign one day earlier.
That email was part of the recent WikiLeaks release of Clinton campaign chair John Podesta’s leaked emails. In the email, sent to Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri, Brazil said that she “gets questions in advance.”
On Tuesday, the DNC pushed back on the idea that Brazile leaked any questions to Clinton ahead of the town hall hosted by CNN and TV One. Brazile had at one point been a CNN contributor.
