Weaver Calls Clinton Attacks Absurd, Says Her Campaign is in Disarray

Bernie 2016

Bernie Sanders’ campaign manager, Jeff Weaver, issued the following statement in response to false claims by the Clinton campaign:

“It is very disturbing that, as the Clinton campaign struggles through Iowa and New Hampshire, they have become increasingly negative and dishonest. No, Bernie Sanders will not dismantle health care programs in America. He believes in health care for all. No, Bernie Sanders is not ‘attacking’ Planned Parenthood. He believes Planned Parenthood is an outstanding organization and wants to increase its funding. No, Bernie Sanders is not ‘protecting’ the gun lobby. He has a D- record from the NRA.

“Today’s attack from Secretary Clinton, whose super PAC received $15 million from Wall Street, is even more absurd. Bernie Sanders, who has never accepted corporate PAC money in his life, is now accused by Secretary Clinton of taking ‘about $200,000 from Wall Street firms.’ How do they reach that false and absurd conclusion? They assume that every nickel Bernie Sanders received from the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee for his Senate campaign came from Wall Street. That is obviously preposterous.

“Bernie appreciates the help he has gotten from the DSCC, whose funds come from millions of Americans’ individual contributions, labor organizations, environmental groups, women’s organizations and others. To say that every nickel that Bernie received came from Wall Street is beyond preposterous. It is laughable and suggests the kind of disarray that the Clinton campaign finds itself in today.”

    This is a Repeat of 2008, same talking points, same lies, same dirty trick, same boring people. Excepts this time it’s Bernie & WE Don’t like it. How do we attack the Clinton’s & their friends? Send MORE money to Our Bernie, it drives the Clinton’s crazy, just like it did in 2008! This weekend those attacks on Our Youth & Women went to far, so we’ve decided to shut her down by avoided her at the Polls heading off to Bernie’s lines.Another thing, wait until the Youth read the headlines about The F.B.I. told the WORLD today that yes, they ARE Investigating HER. Court Day tomorrow as well about those Emails.All WE have to do is stay focus & keep it moving, because I think The Judge will shut her campaign down!
