When it comes to the crumbling narrative about Russia, people on the left are starting to blame each other. In an interview with Vermont Public Radio this week, Bernie Sanders even pointed a finger at Hillary Clinton for not telling people what he claims they knew.
The Washington Free Beacon has the details:
Sanders Blames Clinton for Not Informing People About Russian Meddling: ‘They Had More Information About This Than We Did’
In an interview on Vermont Public Radio, Sanders took issue with a listener’s question that made it seem as if he knew about Russian bots promoting his candidacy at the time he was running.
“If he was aware that Russians were trying to promote him and divide Democrats against Mrs. Clinton, why did he not communicate this to his supporters?” the listener asked Sanders.
“This was not supporting me any more than they were supporting groups like Black Lives Matter that are fighting for social justice,” Sanders said.
“I did not know that Russian bots were promoting my campaign,” Sanders added. “Russians bots were not promoting my campaign. What we found out is that in April and May, it appeared that there were lots of strange things happening, attacking Hillary Clinton.”
The interviewer asked Sanders why he and his campaign did not tell his supporters about Russian interference if they knew Moscow was meddling to sow divisions.
“I would say that the real question to be asked is what was the Clinton campaign—they had more information about this than we did, and at this point, we were working with them,” he responded.
"I did not know Russian bots were promoting my campaign."
"The real question to be asked is" why the Clinton campaign didn't do something.
