"On October 14th, CNN accepted Donna Brazile’s resignation as a CNN contributor," the network said in a statement.

"CNN never gave Brazile access to any questions, prep material, attendee list, background information or meetings in advance of a town hall or debate," the statement continued.  "We are completely uncomfortable with what we have learned about her interactions with the Clinton campaign while she was a CNN contributor." 

A hacked email published Monday by WikiLeaks appeared to show Brazile, now the interim head of the Democratic National Committee, sending a debate question to Clinton's presidential team.

In the email dated March 5, 2016 — the day before a CNN-hosted debate in Flint, Mich. — Brazile, then a CNN contributor, appeared to give a heads up about a question to John Podesta, the Clinton campaign chairman, and Jennifer Palmieri, its communications director.

"One of the questions directed to HRC tomorrow is from a woman with a rash," Brazile wrote in the subject line.  "Her family has lead poison and she will ask what, if anything, will Hillary do as president to help the ppl of Flint." 

The email was stolen in the hack of Podesta's email account. 

Another email leaked earlier this month appeared to show Brazile sending a town hall question to the Clinton campaign. 

"From time to time I get the questions in advance,” says an email to Palmieri dated March 12. 

Brazile has rejected the allegations. 

“As a longtime political activist with deep ties to our party, I supported all of our candidates for president. I often shared my thoughts with each and every campaign, and any suggestions that indicate otherwise are simply untrue. As it pertains to the CNN Debates, I never had access to questions and would never have shared them with the candidates if I did," Brazile said in a statement. 

The Hill reached out to Brazile for comment on the latest leak but has not received a response.
 
Brazile on Monday tweeted farewell to her CNN colleagues.
