Campaign Manager Jeff Weaver announced the suspensions Saturday night, hours after the DNC restored the campaign's access to the primary database of democratic-leaning voters.

DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz said:

"The Sanders campaign has now complied with the DNC's request to provide the information that we have requested of them. Based on this information, we are restoring the Sanders campaign's access to the voter file."

The DNC previously cut off the campaign's access to the database, saying it inappropriately accessed Hillary Clinton's campaign data during a security failure in the database software, which the Sanders campaign somewhat admitted to.

The campaign also fired one of the four staffers involved but says the data wasn't accessed in a way that would give Sanders an unfair advantage.

The decision to reopen access to voter data came a day after Sanders' campaign filed a lawsuit against the DNC. Despite the agreement, a person familiar with the situation told Politico the campaign would not be dropping the lawsuit.

The DNC says it will continue to investigate the data breach so that it doesn't happen again.
