Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is said to have once told fellow presidential primary rival Sen Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) that he believes a woman cannot defeat President Donald Trump in a 2020 general election contest.

CNN, citing sources with knowledge of the situation, reported on Monday that Sanders made the remark during a meeting at Warren’s Washington, D.C., apartment in December 2018.

The article goes on to state the following:

RELATED — REPORT: BERNIE SANDERS RESPONDS TO TRUMP’S POLLING SURGE TWEET

Per CNN:

The two agreed that if they ultimately faced each other as presidential candidates, they should remain civil and avoid attacking one another, so as not to hurt the progressive movement. They also discussed how to best take on President Donald Trump, and Warren laid out two main reasons she believed she would be a strong candidate: She could make a robust argument about the economy and earn broad support from female voters.

Sanders responded that he did not believe a woman could win.

The description of that meeting is based on the accounts of four people: two people Warren spoke with directly soon after the encounter, and two people familiar with the meeting.

The Daily Caller points out that CNN is citing “four anonymous sources with no direct knowledge in order to call Bernie Sanders sexist.”

From the Caller:

CNN’s report cites four anonymous sources, none of whom were actually in the room for the conversation in question. In Lee’s own words, the sources were “two people Warren spoke with directly after the encounter, and two people familiar with the meeting.” Warren’s own communications director, Kristen Orthman, who joined her team in 2017, declined to comment on the story.

The only actual quote in the piece came from Sanders himself, who emphatically denied CNN’s claim.

Sanders issued the following statement to CNN:

“It is ludicrous to believe that at the same meeting where Elizabeth Warren told me she was going to run for president, I would tell her that a woman couldn’t win. It’s sad that, three weeks before the Iowa caucus and a year after that private conversation, staff who weren’t in the room are lying about what happened. What I did say that night was that Donald Trump is a sexist, a racist and a liar who would weaponize whatever he could. Do I believe a woman can win in 2020? Of course! After all, Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump by 3 million votes in 2016.”
