DNC Chairman Tom Perez appeared on Fox News’ “Special Report with Bret Baier” Tuesday, saying that their constituents “want to move forward” from the recent revelations made by former DNC interim chair Donna Brazile, asking for the party to come together, as per Fox News.
“I’m working hard to make sure we build a party that works for everyone, that unites everyone and we’ve seen the party coming together in places like Virginia,” Perez told Baier.
In her recently published book, Brazile alleges that the DNC and Hillary Clinton have made an agreement that gave the Clinton campaign control over the committee’s funds. Brazile suggested that the deal were majorly in Hillary’s favor in the upcoming primaries against Senator Bernie Sanders. Brazile has since dismissed claims by Sanders’ voters that the primaries were rigged against the Vermont lawmaker.
“[I] haven’t gotten one question about Donna Brazile,” Perez added. “What I’ve gotten from voters is unity. They want to move forward … As for me at the DNC, I’m all about making sure we do everything, every day to earn the trust of our voters.”
Moreover, Perez stood by the DNC’s funding of Fusion GPS, the group that engaged former British MI5 spy Christopher Steele to compile the infamous Trump dossier that reportedly contains dirt on the US President and his ties to Russia.
“As I understand it, you’re doing opposition research in the course of a presidential campaign,” Perez said. “We had a law firm doing that research … the DNC and the Clinton campaign were paying for that research and as part of that research, they obtained this information.”
“If you’re not doing opposition research in a presidential campaign, you’re committing malpractice, especially when you’re talking about Donald Trump who had a lot of very, very irregular ties in Russia. And because he wouldn’t release his tax returns or business records, we had to do what we had to do.”
