The new interim chair of the Democratic National Committee, Donna Brazile, is no fan of the Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ campaign, a leaked email shows.

Brazile was emailed on May 13 by a Washington Post reporter to comment on the “fight between the Sanders camp and DNC over adequate representation on the platform committee and others ahead of the convention.” (RELATED: Debbie Wasserman Schultz To Step Down As DNC Chair)

Brazile then forwarded the press inquiry to DNC officials and wrote, “I have no intentions of touching this. Why? Because I will cuss out the Sanders camp!”

The same WikiLeaks release of nearly 20,000 emails contained multiple instances of Florida Democratic Rep. Wasserman Schultz talking negatively about Sanders and his campaign. Wasserman Schultz is currently the DNC chairwoman but will resign at the conclusion of the Democratic Party convention Thursday.
