Wasserman-Schultz Reacts Angrily to Claim That She's Biased
In a May 2016 email, Wasserman-Schultz reacted to news that MSNBC anchor Mika Brzezinski was calling on her to step down because she was biased against Sanders. Wasserman-Schultz responded: "This is the LAST straw. Please call Phil a Griffin. This is outrageous. She needs to apologize." Phil Griffin is the MSNBC president. She had even reached out to Chuck Todd of NBC's Meet the Press
