Well, isn’t this convenient. This explains a whole lot.
The CNBC executive who oversaw the catastrophic Republican presidential debate in Colorado is married to a Hillary Clinton 2016 donor.
Breitbart News reported that CNBC vice president of communications Brian Steel was the “executive on hand” at Wednesday night’s debate. Steel previously worked in the Bill Clinton White House for Vice President Al Gore and held three different positions in the Clinton administration, including two in Clinton’s Department of Justice.
