Donna Brazile: "I found no evidence" election was rigged

Donna Brazile, the former interim chair of the Democratic National Committee, said she "found no evidence, none whatsoever" that the Democratic primaries were rigged in favor of Hillary Clinton, dialing back an earlier statement in a Politico tell-all that the DNC was "rigging the system" for Clinton. Brazile made the comments in an interview on ABC's "This Week."

  • On getting hacked during the election season: "This was worse than Hurricane Katrina in terms of the emotional toll."
  • On threats received during the campaigns: "When Donald Trump would attack me ... the threats were just unbearable ... I got every different kind of security device. I had to get my home swept, the DNC swept twice. It was horrible."
  • On Trump's calls for the Justice Dept. to investigate Hillary Clinton: "I think he needs to look at his own house before he tries to clean up someone else's."
