Interim Democratic National Committee chairwoman Donna Brazile lashed out at CNN for dismissing her as a political commentator for allegedly giving Hillary Clinton advance notice of questions for a primary debate against Sen. Barry Sanders, The Roanoke Times reported.

"CNN never gave me a question," Brazile said during a speech at Hollins University. "I wish CNN had given me some other things, like the ability to defend myself rather than ripping me a new one."

Brazile took over as DNC chairwoman in the summer after Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz stepped down over leaked emails revealing attempts to undermine Sanders' presidential campaign.

Following the latest revelation, Sanders' supporters launched an online campaign for Brazile's resignation, according to USA Today.

Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean and Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, who worked on Sanders' presidential campaign, are already campaigning to succeed Brazile, whose tenure is scheduled to end in March.

During the speech at the women's college, Brazile also said that after Clinton came so close to becoming the first female American president, women should dedicate their lives to reach greater achievements, the Times reported.

She said she was in grief after Clinton's loss, but stressed that a female president cannot be that far off.

"While she did not reach that highest ceiling, did not break it all the way through, all of us have shattered glass in our hair," Brazile said. "Despite the darkness of the times, the difficulties, I remain hopeful that I will see that light. And I believe we still will see, in our lifetimes, a female president of the United States," encouraging the audience to never stop fighting for change.
