Anonymous Sources Claim Sanders Told Warren A Woman Couldn't Win

Elizabeth Warren made another stunning revelation against fellow Democratic presidential contender Bernie Sanders that he had told her earlier that a woman could not win the 2020 U.S. election. Also not on the stage is former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

"Elizabeth Warren is a very good friend of mine", Sanders said.

Amid fresh warnings that progressives in the USA should be on guard against efforts by the corporate media to sow division between the Warren and Sanders campaigns, CNN came under fire Monday afternoon after publishing an unsubstantiated hit piece that cited anonymous sources-not even in the room at the time-claiming Bernie Sanders privately told Elizabeth Warren in 2018 that a woman could not win the presidency. Democrats need to reunite our party and that means pulling in all parts of the Democratic coalition.

While some claimed to be requesting refunds, Warren supporters said the hashtag encouraged them to donate more money to her campaign. She said she was "disappointed" Sanders was instructing staffers to "trash" her.

According to Solomon, "Keeping eyes on the prize this year will require a united front that can strengthen progressive forces, prevent any corporate Democrat from winning the party's presidential nomination, and then go on to defeat Donald Trump". "Bernie knows me and has known me for a long time".

CNN reported Monday that, according to four sources, at the 2018 meeting, Sanders had told Warren that he did not believe that a woman could win.

Mr Sanders, a senator from Vermont, vehemently denied making the comment. "After all, Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump by 3 million votes in 2016". Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, who has had several strong debates, will be looking for another opportunity to highlight her candidacy as she remains mired in the middle of the pack in polling.

The script said Ms Warren was a candidate for "the elite", Mr Buttigieg had no black supporters, and "nobody is really excited" about Mr Biden. He noted that each campaign employs hundreds and "people sometimes say things they shouldn't".

It was much the same in a September poll by Fox News in which half of Democratic and likely Democratic voters said they preferred a candidate who would fundamentally change the political system, while just about as many said they wanted a return to the political system before Trump's presidency. "Elizabeth Warren. Warren is at 17%; Buttigieg, 16%; and former Vice President Joe Biden, 15%".

"[The media wants] to anoint the person who's going to win and that's what they do", Gutfeld said on "The Five". "And it looks to me like Democrats are fired up to take out Trump".

Sanders also stepped up his criticism of the foreign policy record of former Vice President Biden, the choice of the Democratic Party establishment for the presidential nomination, citing Biden's 2002 vote for the Authorization for Use of Military Force resolution that gave the green light for the Bush administration to invade and occupy Iraq.

Critics of the reporting, which immediately sparked prominent headlines elsewhere and gained traction on social media, said the story is the kind of irresponsible journalism created to sow division and little more. The godfather of the group, Representative Seth Moulton, a former Marine Corps officer and Iraq war veteran who won a House seat in 2014 and later founded VoteVets, a political action committee to recruit former military-intelligence operatives to run for Congress, was briefly a presidential candidate a year ago.

The two agreed that if they ultimately faced each other as presidential candidates, they should remain civil and avoid attacking one another, so as not to hurt the progressive movement. "Of course!" Sanders said in the statement.

"This fire was started", Chamberlain said, but "it can be put out by leadership by example from the top".
