Democrat officials want Hillary Clinton to give back $1.65 million the Democratic National Committee (DNC) agreed to give her in exchange for her campaign email list and other supporter-prospecting resources.

The DNC made the deal with Clinton last year for the materials, but, Democrat leaders want her to refund the money, The Huffington Post reports:

“In February 2017, the DNC agreed to pay Clinton’s group Onward Together $1.65 million for her campaign email list, analytics, donor data and related items, The Intercept reported on Wednesday. The cache of material was worth more than $5 million; Clinton’s campaign made an in-kind donation of resources worth $3.5 million, and the DNC paid for the rest.

“Now, a number of Democratic Party officials, including some state party chairs and DNC members, want Clinton to retroactively donate the campaign materials to the DNC and return the money that the party organ gave Onward Together.”

Clinton should return the $1.65 million “for the love of the party” and because it’s “the Christian thing to do,” DNC officials say.

Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill says the DNC has more than gotten its money’s worth from the materials.
