The liberal stalwarts have been critical of the former president for accepting a massive speaking fee to a Wall Street audience…
Disgraced former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) told the leaders of her party, Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT), to “mind your own business” regarding their criticisms of former President Barack Obama’s $400,000 fee for speaking to a Wall Street group.
After being shown both criticisms during an interview on CNN’s “Erin Burnett OutFront,” Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz fired back that “it is none of anyone’s business what someone who is a member of the private sector decides to accept in terms of compensation.”
“With all due respect to anyone who chooses to comment publicly on what Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, or anyone earns as a member of the private sector,” she said, “it’s just, like, MYOB — it’s none of your business.”

The criticisms echo those of Sanders from the 2016 presidential primary, in which the Vermont senator lambasted Hillary Clinton for raking in millions in paid speaking gigs, particularly those to financial institutions, after her stint at the State Department and before she launched her presidential campaign.
Sanders and Wasserman Schultz famously butted heads during that primary, and Wasserman Schultz eventually was forced to resign her post as DNC chair after email leaks showed her pulling the strings for Clinton in the primary.
Still a member of Congress, Schultz’s decision to attack Warren and Sanders is the clearest sign yet that Democrats’ 2016 divisions fester to this day.
