Oh, there is a big scandal brewing right now that it is going to hit the Democrat party hard and could end up ending the campaign of at least one candidate.

CNN published a report that sources inside the Warren camp are claiming Bernie Sanders, in a private meeting, told Warren that a woman cannot win this election.

Spreading Rumors

The story broke late Monday night and it has been gathering steam ever since.

According to the report, Sanders and Warren, who are friends, held a private meeting prior to announcing their candidacies.

The two wanted to clear the air to ensure they would not personally attack each other during the campaign.

Since both of them are considered progressives, they did not want to hurt the chances of either of them providing fodder for Trump were one of them to win the election.

When the story blew up last night, Warren backed up the story of the inside source that spoke to CNN.

Warren stated, “I thought a woman could win; he disagreed.”

Now, Warren has been throwing some darts the last few days since her campaign has been tanking, so let’s just say the allegations against Sanders were not exactly met with open arms.

The Rebuttal

First to rebuke the allegations was, of course, Bernie Sanders.

Sanders told CNN, “It is ludicrous to believe that at the same meeting where Elizabeth Warren told me she was going to run for president, I would tell her that a woman couldn’t win.

“It’s sad that, three weeks before the Iowa caucus and a year after that private conversation, staff who weren’t in the room are lying about what happened.

“What I did say that night was that Donald Trump is a sexist, a racist and a liar who would weaponize whatever he could.

“Do I believe a woman can win in 2020? Of course! After all, Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump by 3 million votes in 2016.”

There was also support across the board for Sanders from both the media as well as his fellow candidates.

Tulsi Gabbard was among the first of those to stick up for Sanders…

This is not going to play out for one of these two and my best guess would that Warren is going to come up on the short side of things.

She is a desperate candidate and Sanders is clearly taking her momentum away from her campaign.

History has also proven Warren to be a liar, so the public sentiment is more than likely going to be behind Sanders on this one, which means Warren’s days are officially numbered.
