“We could have a long conversation just about Debbie Wasserman Schultz and how she’s been throwing shade at the Sanders campaign since the very beginning,” Sanders's campaign manager, Jeff Weaver, said on CNN.


“Whether it was the debate schedule that were very few and far between and scheduled on weekends when no one was going to be watching them, whether they shut off Sanders’s access to his own data and we had to sue them in federal court to get them back, whether it was these joint fundraising agreements with the Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonDemocrats ask judge for quick ruling on McGahn subpoena Hillary Clinton: 'Every day Stephen Miller remains in the White House is an emergency' The Memo: Centrists change tone of Democratic race MORE campaign which are taking money from the state parties and giving it to the DNC.”

Weaver added that the Sanders campaign's issues are largely with Wasserman Schultz rather than the DNC itself.

“I’ve got to say — it’s not the DNC,” he said. "By and large, people at the DNC have been very good to us. Debbie Wasserman Schultz is really the exception.”

Wasserman Schultz, a Florida lawmaker, on early Wednesday said that Sanders’s campaign had not adequately denounced violence from its supporters in Nevada last weekend.

“With all due respect, when there is a ‘but’ in between a condemnation of violence generally and after the word ‘but’ you go on to seemingly justify the reason that the violence and intimidating has occurred, then that falls short of making sure that going forward that this kind of conduct doesn’t occur,” she said on CNN’s “New Day.”

Sanders on Tuesday accused the Nevada Democratic Party of abusing its power and unfairly hurting his campaign last weekend.

“The Democratic leadership used its power to prevent a fair and transparent process from taking place,” he said in a statement, adding that claims his backers in Nevada were violent are “nonsense.”
