According to this afternoon’s edition of The Weekly Standard, shots were fired into Nevada campaign office of Bernie Sanders in the run-up to the Nevada primary on Feb. 23. In addition, an apartment in which some of his campaign staff lived was broken into. According to The Weekly Standard :
“The Democratic presidential candidate did not explicitly blame his rival, Hillary Clinton, for the actions.”
The revelation was made today when Sanders responded to a number of criticisms by the Clinton campaign that Sanders’ people had a:
“… penchant for violence.”
According to a Sanders’ release:
“Within the last few days there have been a number of criticisms made against my campaign organization. Party leaders in Nevada, for example, claim that the Sanders campaign has a ‘penchant for violence.’ “
“That is nonsense. Our campaign has held giant rallies all across this country, including in high-crime areas, and there have been zero reports of violence. Our campaign of course believes in non-violent change and it goes without saying that I condemn any and all forms of violence, including the personal harassment of individuals.”
“But, when we speak of violence, I should add here that months ago, during the Nevada campaign, shots were fired into my campaign office in Nevada and apartment housing complex my campaign staff lived in was broken into and ransacked.”
I support Sanders’ contention that his real supporters have been non-violent types.
This reporter’s observations have been that although the violence-prone demonstrators at many of the Donald Trump rallies – especially the cancelled rally in Chicago on March 11, 2016 – have sometimes held Bernie Sanders signs, all evidence points to the fact that they were not real Sanders supporters, but most likely those funded by George Soros monies and hired through advertisements on Craig’s List.
These folks were then instructed to appear to be Sanders supporters in an effort to discredit two birds with one stone – both Sanders and Trump.
I’m still reporting from Washington. Good day.
