“I think she should resign, period,”  said Sanders to George Stephanopolus on ABC’s “This Week.” “And I think we need a new chair who is going to lead us in a very different direction.”
She “should not be chair of the DNC, and I think these emails reiterate that reason why she should not be chair,” the Vermont senator added, referring to a massive email leak that painted a picture of bias against the Democratic Party officials
The fallout was that late Saturday night, news emerged that Wasserman Schultz would not preside over or speak at the DNC convention in Philadelphia this week.
