The Democratic National Committee is prepared to shell out nearly $2 million to Hillary Clinton’s Onward Together organization for her coveted email list; signaling a further split between the Clintons and the DNC.
According to a bombshell report from the Intercept, desperate Democrats believe the former candidate’s list is pivotal in retaking the House during the 2018 midterm elections… and they’re willing to pay for it.
The DNC is prepared to spend $1.65 million for the voter data, while the Democratic Congressional Campaign payed over $700,000 to simply rent the material for the upcoming election.
“Clinton is legally entitled to rent her list to the party, rather than hand it over as a gift, but in 2015, Barack Obama gave his email list, valued at $1,942,640, to the DNC as an in-kind contribution,” writes the Intercept.
Former DNC chair Donna Brazile reportedly confirmed the hefty price tag, saying “tough negotiations between the Clinton campaign and the DNC. I wanted to bring back our assets. I wanted to get as much from them as they got from us.”
