Interested to watch Bernie Sanders?’s wife explain her position?
Watch NowThe Sanders campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Jane Sanders said the decision was not an easy one, but that she had never been told to leave the campaign.
“I’m not going to get into the specifics of what happened and why,” she said.
“I just don’t feel comfortable saying that.”
Jane Sanders, 45, was previously the chief of staff for Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.), a senior Democratic senator, and served as a senior adviser to the Clinton campaign.
In an interview with ABC News last month, she said her husband had tried to dissuade her from joining the campaign because he didn’t believe she had the “experience” to be in the campaign, and that she was “not going to be a part of the process.”
“There were so many things that we knew that were incorrect,” she told ABC News, including a “sloppy” decision by campaign staffers to use a $2,700 credit card to pay for their travel expenses to New Hampshire in October.
“We thought it was something we should have known.”
Jane’s role at the campaign was initially to lead a group of advisers, including her husband, to help organize the event and prepare for it.
But when the campaign announced its campaign headquarters in Des Moines, Iowa, the two began to coordinate their own events.
Jane Sanders then stepped into a senior role at campaign headquarters as a “political director,” but was asked to stay on in a “chief of staff” role to help coordinate campaign activities.
A number of other campaign staffers have also left over the years, including chief digital strategist Ben Tulchin, deputy campaign manager Lauren Hochstein, senior communications director John Burton, communications director Adam Green, director of strategy Liz Mrazek and chief policy adviser Michael Briggs.
The Sanders campaigns spokespeople have not commented on the matter.
Jane said the couple had never discussed the campaign at length and did not share their thinking on how best to handle the transition.
“We were just sort of in the moment,” she added.
“You know, there were things we thought we should’ve known and things we didn’t.
We were just kind of doing our best.”
The Sanders’ transition team has been under scrutiny after it emerged that Jane Sanders was not given a “confidential” email account to use.
The email was reportedly opened by a staffer at the Clinton presidential campaign who worked in the field, according to The Hill, which reported that a staffer there opened the account after the Sanders campaign informed him the account was “secret.”
The email included Clinton’s full address, but the Sanders’ team told ABCNews.com that the Sanders camp had never asked Jane to turn over the account.
Jane was the second person to leave her job with the campaign last week.
Former campaign communications director Matt Barresi left his job on Thursday after reportedly working on “very limited” campaigns for former president Barack Obama and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).
Barresi, who had been a campaign aide for former Sen. Jim Webb (D) from 2009-2014, was also given a secret email account, ABC News reported.
Barresi’s departure follows the resignation of deputy communications director Jessica Kourkounis.
Barreis also left the campaign after reportedly speaking out about the DNC and its role in the 2016 election.
Barely one week after she was fired, Jane left the Clinton camp on Friday, ABC reported.ABC News’ Peter Sullivan, Alana Abramson, Brianne Gowan, Mary Clare Jalonick and Ryan Struyk contributed to this report.
