Report: Bernie Sanders Briefed that Russia Trying to Help His Campaign

U.S. officials have warned Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) that Russia is attempting to boost his prospects of winning the White House in 2020, sources familiar with the matter told the Washington Post.

President Donald Trump and Congressional lawmakers have also received briefings regarding the Kremlin’s efforts to help Sanders, reports the Post. In a statement to the newspaper, Sanders called Russian President Vladimir Putin a “thug” and said he stands “firmly against” any efforts to interfere in U.S. elections

“I don’t care, frankly, who Putin wants to be president,” Sanders said. “My message to Putin is clear: stay out of American elections, and as president I will make sure that you do.”

“In 2016, Russia used internet propaganda to sow division in our country, and my understanding is that they are doing it again in 2020. Some of the ugly stuff on the Internet attributed to our campaign may well not be coming from real supporters,” he added.

A spokesperson for the Sanders campaign would not comment on the nature of Russia’s attempted efforts to help the Vermont senator.

Never saw that coming, didja?
Sure, if you are an uninformed fool who only reads wingnut blogs.

But informed people read about the same thing happening in 2016 years ago.
Yep, no difference between what Putin and Bernie want.
Yeah, I know that's your talking point of the evening. Please, embarrass yourself all you like.
Not my fault Putin is cheering for Bernie.

My, my. You'd think Bernie would WELCOME the support from his buddies, the Soviet Socialists. Does that mean that if Bernie should win he'd be another illegitimate president? :eek:

Not Bernie's, either. Or trump's. The difference being, your cult leader invites it, condones it, and even assists in it. which you love. So, no idea what you are whining about. I get it: This thread is you expressing jealousy.

This would be a huge scandal if Sanders asked for the help and had people trying to capitalize on it.

In 2016, Russia pushed conspiracy theories about the DNC being unfair to Bernie in order to stir division in the party. They are doing it again. This will place an additional burden on Bernie to disavow any claims by Russian botts, It's unfair that he should have to go to that trouble, and it might even hurt his chances of winning the nomination, but it shows how a man of integrity like Bernie differs from the orange pig that is president now.
