Sanders Team denies advancing Biden Prosecutor story as Biden supporter says the former VP is "ready to kill Bernie"
Members of Joe Biden's inner circle are increasingly convinced that Bernie Sanders' campaign is behind at least one of the explosive charges of physical misconduct recently brought against the former vice president – and in the words of a prominent funder, Biden now "ready to kill Bernie."
In an article on Friday, former Nevada governor Lucy Flores accused Biden of inappropriate sexual behavior during an election campaign in 2014, saying that Biden "[ed] made a slow kiss on the back of my head."
Flores Sanders advocated in a Facebook post from 2016, served on the board of Sanders-focused Our Revolution group and publicly championed him. She also appeared at a rally for Democratic presidential candidate Beto O & Rourke.

. And in a dramatic, tense moment, a leading Democratic source, The Daily Beast, openly said Tuesday that Biden's team believe the story that another similar message followed a Connecticut woman "out of the Bernie world." 1

But Sanders campaign manager Faiz Shakir emphatically denied any suggestion that the senatorial team or his allies were behind Flores history, and told Fox News about an earlier statement on the matter.
"Neither the campaign of Bernie Sanders nor anyone involved, planted, planned, persuaded, spoiled, or otherwise urged Lucy Flores or anyone else to tell her story. Point, point, sentence end. I do not want to hear it We did not matter, "Shakir said.
" But that's why my blood boils, "he added." We've heard through allusions and rumors that this campaign somehow consisted of Lucy Flores her story told, and it is deeply disrespectful and shameful that every time a woman comes by to tell her story there has to be some kind of hint or intimation that person is doing this out of a political agenda and or that person possibly lies.

. Shakir continued, "We've been through the Donald Trump campaign. A number of women came forward to tell their stories, and they were fired, criticized, and torn to shreds by the United States President at the highest level in the country. Christine Blasey Ford We have seen that it must be a Dianne Feinstein facility, it is dismissive and disrespectful that whenever a woman comes in, the first suggestion is that she must have a political agenda. "
In In his own fiery statement on Monday, a Biden spokesman urged the charges against the vice president, saying many photos of Biden had been misinterpreted – even after some of the women appearing in them – while other obvious "smears and counterfeits
But the spokesman, Bill Russo, criticized "Law." Trolls, "and left no hint that he referred to Sanders.
In response, House spokeswoman Nancy Pelosi stated that Biden's problems did not trigger disqualification – even as she gave some unsolicited advice on how to avoid landing in one of the other "inappropriate" situations.
"Just pretend you have a cold," Pelosi said during a Politico event on Tuesday morning. "I'm a straight-leaning club member, I pretend to have a cold, and I have a cold. Join me in the Club Arm Club." The team has publicly argued with other Democrats. Earlier this year, a senior Sanders consultant, Hillary Clinton, called team members "the biggest holes in American politics," saying neither Clinton nor her staff were "nice people."
