Wasserman Schultz’s Tone Was ‘So Casual’ When Telling DNC About Hacking


Former Democratic National Committee (DNC) chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz did not seem particularly concerned about the cyber breach that led to Wikileaks’ publication of internal emails, her successor Donna Brazile writes in her new book.

That’s when she got around to telling them at all, waiting more than a monthafter first learning of it in April. Then she refused to apologize to those affected by the breach. Brazile writes:

On June 14 Debbie invited the Democratic Party officers to a conference call to alert us that a story about hacking the DNC that would would be published in the Washington Post the following day. That call was the first time we’d heard that there was a problem. Debbie’s tone was so casual that I had not absorbed the details, nor even thought that it was much for us to be concerned about. Her manner indicated that this hacking thing was something she had covered. But had she?

Two top Obama administration officials told Brazile that the DNC had rebuffed the FBI’s offers to help deal with the hack. Susan Rice “told me I had to take this very seriously,” Brazile writes.

“It took a long time for the FBI to get any response from the party,” Rice said. “Make sure that the DNC cooperates fully with the investigators, promise me that.”

Eric Holder, then the attorney general, told her “the DNC was not very responsive to the FBI.”
