Democrat analyst out at CNN over debate question leaks to Clinton

Democratic National Committee Chair Donna Brazile at the third US presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in Las Vegas on October 19, 2016CNN said Monday it had parted ways with Democratic strategist Donna Brazile after hacked emails released by WikiLeaks showed that she shared questions with Hillary Clinton’s campaign ahead of events sponsored by the network. Brazile, who has long worked as an analyst for the news channel, had been on leave since agreeing in July to serve as acting chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee. On Monday, WikiLeaks revealed she sent an email to top Clinton aides on the eve of a primary debate with Bernie Sanders hosted by CNN in the Michigan city of Flint, which is facing a crisis over elevated lead levels in its water.
