DNC Chair [crscore]Debbie Wasserman Schultz[/crscore] fought back against criticism from the [crscore]Bernie Sanders[/crscore]’s campaign insisting, “the Sanders campaign unfortunately doesn’t have anything other than bluster at the moment that they can put out there.”

Appearing on CNN’s “Wolf” with Wolf Blitzer Friday, Wasserman Schultz said, “The Sanders campaign has acknowledged that they have inappropriately accessed data to which they were not entitled, proprietary information that was the property of the Clinton campaign. That’s not in dispute.” (RELATED: Sanders Campaign Manager: DNC ‘Actively Attempting To Undermine Our Campaign’ [VIDEO])

The DNC chair then claimed that the Sanders campaign “refused to provide” an analysis and information about what information was improperly accessed. As such, Wasserman Schultz said “we are initiating an independent audit, because that is the only way that we can make sure that we can protect our significant asset that is the voter file and its integrity.”

Wasserman Schultz then explained, “I guess that the Sanders campaign unfortunately doesn’t have anything other than bluster at the moment that they can put out there, because what they are doing, what they have done, it’s like if you had, if you found the front door of the house unlocked, and someone decided to go into the house, and take things that didn’t belong to them, and then when they were caught, they still insisted on having access to the house.”

According to Wasserman Schultz, “the only way for us to at the moment to make sure that we analyze what amount of information was taken, and that we can prevent and make sure that the Sanders campaign no longer has access to it is to suspend their ability to manipulate it.” (RELATED: DNC Is Protecting Hillary With Weekend Debates, O’Malley, Sanders Complain)

Because the Sanders campaigned signed an agreement when they purchased access to the DNC data, “we are following the agreement that both parties entered into. This is certainly not unreasonable, and it is actually the only way that we can ensure that we protect the integrity of the voter file.”

Wasserman Schultz reiterated what she said earlier in the day on MSNBC claiming, “I can be quite certain that if the shoe were on the other foot, and the Clinton campaign had inappropriately accessed Sanders campaign proprietary information, I’m confident that is the same decision they would expect from us and it is the same decision that we would make if the shoe were on the other foot.” (RELATED: DNC Chair: We’re Treating The Sanders Campaign The Same Way We’d Treat Hillary… If She Did Something Wrong [VIDEO])
