The Clintons didn’t want to leave anything to chance. If they did Hillary might lose.

The truth is the rigging of the 2016 DNC presidential primary began long before the contract was signed between the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Victory Fund in August 2015, as implied by Donna Brazile. It actually began as early as the start of 2014.
In February 2014, Former President Clinton and Hillary Clinton announced their commitment to support the “Voter Expansion Project“, the new DNC initiative announced in the winter of 2013. Beyond a short blurb in NPR, this project and its relevance to the ever-unfolding events of Hillary Clinton’s failed second run for president remains largely unexamined.
The Clintons were central to the Voter Expansion Project, which the DNC officials believed would appeal to their donor base; and that, in turn, “would help the Clintons raise money to help extinguish the DNC’s nearly $16 million in debt left from its 2012 effort to re-elect President Obama”. The Clintons pledged to help retire that debt, but as it turns out, they did not. Instead, according to Donna Brazile’s book excerpt published by Politico, they used this debt as an opportunity to exploit campaign financing laws and contractually take over the operations of the DNC in August 2015, a year prior to Hillary becoming the official DNC nominee for President. When Brazile audited the DNC books, she discovered former chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a staunch Clinton loyalist, continued to pay high retainer fees to consultants and firms syphoning money to people and organizations that displayed fealty to the Clintons or their neoliberal ideals.
“Neoliberal.” Love that. Hillary is both a neoliberal and a neocon at the same time.
