Sen. Sanders admits impeachment trial may hurt his presidential campaign

As the joint flagbearers of progressive politics, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren rebuffed any suggestion their friendship was under threat ever since declaring their rival candidacies for the United States presidency.

In a confrontation caught on camera after the debate, Senator Warren refused to shake Senator Sanders' hand, but the audio of their interaction was unable to be heard by the audience.

Mr Sanders, a senator from Vermont, has denied that, and did so again during Tuesday night's presidential debate, which was hosted by CNN and the Des Moines Register and held in Iowa, whose first-in-the-nation caucuses are on February 3.

Because Donald Trump knows "the kind of things" Bernie Sanders might tell Elizabeth Warren in a private conversation? McCarthy's reference to superdelegates was especially notable: some Sanders supporters are under the mistaken belief that Democratic superdelegates derailed the senator's 2016 candidacy, which is not what happened.

The words used by the candidates were not audible to viewers, but CNN said audio of the exchange had been found Wednesday. In a CNN story published earlier that day, four sources had said Sanders had told Warren in the meeting a woman couldn't win.

Warren: "I think you called me a liar on national TV".

I don't know exactly what Sanders said to Warren a year and a half ago, but there have been three major-party US presidential tickets with women on them, and all have lost.

However, the pact appears to be lying in tatters, after Ms Warren accused Mr Sanders of calling her a liar on national TV. And Sanders and Warren being stuck behind their desks at the Senate trial for the next few weeks, not even able to speak (crash dummies, anyone?) could help Biden.

"Thirty years ago, she was a Republican", said Nina Turner, a co-chairwoman for Sanders's campaign. Bernie Sanders engaged in a "he said, she said" battle regarding a conversation the two progressive candidates had in 2018, when both were about to embark on their campaigns.

New Jersey Senator Cory Booker, who ended his 2020 presidential campaign Monday, weighed in on the clash on CBS This Morning, saying that "nobody should be attacking their character".

Klobuchar and Warren said they planned to vote in favour of the USMCA. "You called me a liar". "You told me-" he said. "So my view is, of course a woman could win the Presidency". Look at the men on this stage.

And Sanders apologized previous year after several campaign aides were accused of harassing women.

"I think I read it on the front page of the Messenger", she said.

"Elizabeth Warren is a very good friend of mine", Sanders told the New York Times. Collectively they have lost ten elections.
