"Did the #DNC seriously just swap the Chair fired for anti-Sanders bias with a different anti-Sanders official?" the former government contractor tweeted.

He included in the tweet an image of an email between a reporter and Donna Brazile, the DNC vice chairwoman who will serve as interim chairwoman following Wasserman Schultz's resignation at the end of this week's Democratic National Convention.

In the email, the reporter asked Brazile if she would be able to talk about the fight between the Sanders campaign and the DNC over adequate representation on the party's Platform Committee.

In response, Brazile said: "I have no intentions of touching this. Why? Because I will cuss out the Sanders camp!"

Wasserman Schultz announced on Sunday she would resign at the end of the convention. The Florida congresswoman still planned to open the convention, but on Monday she abandoned those plans after she was booed at an appearance before her home-state delegation.

On Monday, Brazile apologized for the emails that attacked the Sanders campaign. 

“On behalf of the party, I wanted to apologize for the salacious and sensitive, very mean-spirited emails that were referenced to in the WikiLeaks,” she told Fox News on Monday.

But Brazile said the Democrats must not let the messages divide them ahead of the general election.
