(NEWSER) – The Democratic National Committee has agreed to restore access to voter files for the Bernie Sanders campaign, cooling tensions in what Politico calls a "civil war" within the party over the Sanders campaign's improper accessing of Clinton campaign data.

The DNC agreed to restore access soon after the Sanders campaign made good on its threat to file a lawsuit but the two sides described the development in very different ways, reports the Washington Post. The Sanders campaign said the DNC had "capitulated" and "reversed its outrageous decision," while the DNC's statement said it had decided to restore access because the Sanders campaign had agreed to "fully cooperate with the continuing DNC investigation of this breach."
