Donna Brazile, the former interim Democratic National Committee chairwoman, has been hired by Fox News to serve as an on-air political commentator. She made her Fox News debut on “Daily Briefing with Dana Perino” on Monday.
Brazile was formerly a contributor at CNN but was fired after a December 2016 Wikileaks report found she had shared topics that would be covered during a televised town hall against Bernie Sanders with presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. At first Brazile denied sharing the information with the Clinton campaign but later admitted to the leak calling it “a mistake I will forever regret.”
In an op-ed for Fox News, Brazile said she is “excited to share my perspective and views with the Fox News audience and to help shape the dialogue at this important juncture in our history.”
“Will I agree with my fellow commentators at Fox News? Probably not. But I will listen. Will I question some of their assertions about hard-working Americans, low-income people and issues like climate change? Absolutely. But I will do so with civility and respect,” Brazile wrote.
Brazile will not be involved in any debates or town halls hosted by Fox News, according to the network.
