Top Sanders official: 'Senator would never support the trashing of any candidate'

A top official for Sen. Bernie Sanders's (I-Vt.) 2020 campaign on Monday responded to reports that the campaign was urging volunteers to “trash” Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.). Nina Turner, co-chairwoman Sanders's presidential campaign, maintained in an interview with Hill.TV that the Vermont senator “would never support the trashing of any candidate,” and that he has “never directed anybody to do such a thing.” “I was really sad to see that because as Senator Warren laid out that Senator Sanders knows her — she knows him. She knows that he would never do anything like that so when she says he sent out his volunteers, nothing could be further from the truth,” Turner said.
