Liberal Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren backtracked on previous comments she made accusing Hillary Clinton of “rigging” the 2016 Democratic primary; telling a local news station there was “some bias” in the election but it was mostly “fair.”
Warren was speaking with MassLIve.com when she was pressed on her previous statements over Donna Brazile’s tell-all book, where the former DNC chief claims Hillary Clinton “secretly stole” control of the party nearly a year before she was officially the nominee.
“I agree with what Donna Brazile has said over the last few days; that while there was some bias at the DNC, the overall 2016 primary process was fair and Hillary made history,” said the Senator.
“[Tuesday] night’s election results across the country, including in Massachusetts, showed us that Republicans had money and power,” she deflected. “But, Democrats had our voices and our votes, and we used them. People from every corner of the Democratic Party won and that’s a win, not just for Democrats but for democracy.”
Warren’s comments are in stark contrast to her words from just days ago, telling CNN’s Jake Tapper she believed the 2016 election was “rigged” by the Clinton campaign and was effectively stolen from Bernie Sanders.
