“I haven’t read (Brazile’s) book. I have great respect for her and Hillary Clinton,” Pelosi told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union.”

“But, not knowing the facts of what it is, I would hope there’s another side to the story. But that’s neither here nor there. It’s almost a waste of time, except for people to put their view of it on the record.”

When she took over as interim chairwoman, Brazile said she learned of an agreement between the DNC and the Clinton campaign that would allow the latter to control the party’s finances and fundraising.

Pelosi said on Sunday she doesn’t get involved in recruiting candidates for presidential elections, instead focusing her efforts on getting Democrats elected to the House of Representatives.

She hopes the DNC will work on getting party members “up and down the ballot” elected, she said.
