Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lambasted the Democratic National Committee on Wednesday for not giving her enough help during the 2016 presidential campaign against President Trump.
Clinton told Recode's Code Conference she received "nothing" from the DNC, adding they were on the "verge of insolvency" and had nearly no helpful data operation.
"We set up our own campaign, had our own data operation. I get the nomination, so I'm now the nominee of the Democratic Party. I inherit nothing from the Democratic Party," Clinton said. "I mean, it was bankrupt. It was on the verge of insolvency. Its data was mediocre to poor, non-existent, wrong. I had to inject money into it."
Clinton then talked about how the Republican National Committee emerged from the 2012 election and invested over $100 million in their data operations, helping them leapfrog the Democrats.
"They basically said, 'We'll never be behind the Democrats again,'" Clinton said.
The DNC was mired in controversy throughout the campaign, which culminated in the resignation of Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., as chairman during the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. Supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., for the Democratic presidential nomination believed the DNC was biased in favor of Clinton during the primaries.
