More evidence from emails published by WikiLeaks has been found that appears to indicate interim Democratic Party Chairwoman Donna Brazile may have indeed leaked debate questions to Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
Brazile has previously been accused of leaking questions to Clinton, claims she has denied.
According to WikiLeaks, in March, Brazile sent an email to Clinton's campaign chair John Podesta and communications director Jennifer Palmieri telling them that Clinton would be asked a question in an upcoming debate about the water crisis in Flint, Michigan.
The email’s subject line read: “One of the questions directed to HRC tomorrow is from a woman with a rash.”
“Her family has lead poison and she will ask what, if anything, will Hillary do as president to help the [people] of Flint,” Brazile purportedly wrote.

She went on to express concern about the water crisis: “Folks, I did a service project today. It's so tragic. And what's worse, some homes have not been tested and it's important to encourage seniors to also get tested.”
At the March 6 Democratic debate, a woman named Lee-Anne Walters whose family was impacted by the water crisis asked both Clinton and her rival Sen. Bernie Sanders if within their 100 days as president they would “make it a requirement that all public water systems must remove all lead service lines throughout the entire United States, and notification made to the - the citizens that have said service lines.”
Clinton replied that “I want us to have an absolute commitment to getting rid of lead wherever it is because it's not only in water systems, it's also in soil, and it's in lead paint that is found mostly in older homes.”
Brazile is a former contributor for CNN. A spokesperson for the network said Monday they are "completely uncomfortable” with her discussions with the Clinton campaign while she worked for CNN. The network suspended Brazile's contract after she became DNC chair, and Monday announced that she will not return to the network as a contributor.
