Bernie Sanders already has his revenge planned for Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
Wasserman Schultz has done everything in her power to rig the Democratic presidential nomination for Hillary Clinton and Sanders has taken notice.
Right now he can, and just did, support her opponent, but if she keeps her position as Congresswoman from Florida, he says that he will make sure she is cut from being DNC chair in the future.
In an interview set to air Sunday with Jake Tapper on CNN’s State of the Union the Vermont senator struck back by saying he is backing Wasserman Schultz’s primary opponent, Tim Canova, in the race to be the representative of Florida’s 23rd district.
“I favor her opponent,” Sanders told Tapper. “His views are much closer to mine than is Wasserman Schultz’s.”
If she managed to be victorious he would use his power to affect her position as DNC chair.
“Let me also say this, in all due respect to the current chairperson, if elected president, she would not be reappointed to be chair of the DNC,” he said.
The comments come as the party is reeling from the tense battle in Nevada in which Sanders supporters booed Clinton surrogate Barbara Boxer mercilessly and demanded a recount of Clinton’s victory.
Wasserman Schultz fired back in a statement Tapper tweeted on Saturday in which she laughably claimed she has been, and will stay, neutral in the primary process.

For all the talk of the Republican Party being splintered, it is becoming increasingly tough to see how the Democrats will ever get on the same page before the November election.
