“As I saw it, these three titanic egos – Barack, Hillary and Debbie – had stripped the party to a shell for their own purposes,” she added.
Brazile said Obama, Clinton and Schultz loved the Democratic Party dearly and sincerely but “leeched it of its vitality and were continuing to do so.”
In another portion of the book, which was highly publicized, Brazile stated that she found "proof" that the DNC rigged the nomination process in favor of Clinton over Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). Several Democrats shared their support of Brazile's claim, including Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.). Warren told CNN's Jake Tapper on Friday, "What we've got to do as Democrats now is we've got to hold this party accountable."
Brazile walked back her statements on Sunday, telling George Stephanopoulos of ABC's "This Week," "I found no evidence. None whatsoever."
Brazile took over as interim chair for the DNC in July 2016 after Schultz was forced to step down, the result of an email leak that revealed DNC staffers aided Clinton's campaign over Sanders' in the primary. Schultz later argued that the primary was "by the books" and "followed the rules." A WikiLeaks email leak a few months later revealed that Brazile provided Clinton's team with some key details of the presidential debate questions ahead of time.
