Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) backtracked Wednesday after previously saying the 2016 Democratic presidential primaries were “rigged.”
Warren told MassLive.com on Wednesday that she believes the allegations in former acting Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile’s new book, but said while the allegations showed “bias” in Hillary Clinton’s favor, the primaries did not rise to the level of being “rigged.”
“While there was some bias at the DNC, the overall 2016 primary process was fair and Hillary made history,” she said.
A week earlier, the senator was asked by CNN’s Jake Tapper whether she agreed with Brazile’s allegation that the process was “rigged” in Clinton’s favor. “Yes,” she answered simply.
