Former interim Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile says in her new memoir that "it broke [her] heart" when she found proof that Hillary Clinton's team had rigged the 2016 Democratic nomination process, a claim Brazile later withdrew. The assertion brought immediate rebukes from Clinton aides, who said she misrepresented the campaign. Brazile joins us to talk about the primary, the state of the DNC and her controversial new book, "Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-Ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House."

Donna Brazile,
former chair, Democratic National Committee; campaign manager, Gore-Lieberman 2000; author, "Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in Office"; fellow, Harvard's Kennedy School Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy
