But they’re doing it.
Via Daily Wire:
Longtime Democratic strategist James Carville absolutely exploded during an appearance on MSNBC Saturday night, calling Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) all but inevitable nomination as the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, “political suicide,” and suggesting that Vladimir Putin is “happy” that the Democrats are helping to get President Donald Trump re-elected.
Carville was addressing stories that floated Saturday, indicating that Russian operatives were gaming the system for Sanders, helping to seed social media conversations and press voters to cast a ballot for the Vermont socialist. So far, there appears to be little available evidence for the claim and it’s not clear where the claim originated. NSA chief Robert O’Brien told CBS’s “Face the Nation” that “I haven’t seen any intelligence to support the reports that were leaked out,” though a lawmaker reportedly pressed security officials for evidence of the claim in a briefing on Saturday.
President Donald Trump, speaking Sunday, blamed Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the Democrat in charge of the House impeachment inquiry and, later, the prosecution in the president’s Senate impeachment trialo, of deliberately leaking the information in order to convince Democrats not to vote for Sanders.
