As previously reported, Schultz announced she would resign her post as chair of the DNC after emails leaked by Wikileaks suggested she showed bias against former Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.

Edward Snowden today questioned if Schultz’s interim replacement Donna Brazile is also biased against Sanders.

“Did the #DNC seriously just swap the Chair fired for anti-Sanders bias with a different anti-Sanders official?” Snowden tweeted.

The tweet included an image of a leaked email between a reporter and Brazile, also the DNC vice chairwoman. The reporter asked Brazile if she would be able to discuss the fight between the Sanders campaign and the DNC over adequate representation on the platform committee.

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

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.
