Dem. Candidate Bernie Sanders learned that Russia was helping his campaign for president and he responded with a video message for them. The story originally broke on The Washington Post, but according to CNN - it still remains unclear exactly how Russia is helping Sanders' campaign, and well - if they're actually helping at all or if it's just a speculative conspiracy to cause some election chaos.
This comes right when Bernie Sanders starts picking up steam against his Democrat candidates and even surges towards the lead for the Democrats.
There are some who also believe that Moscow is "taking steps to help President Donald Trump win" according to CNN. However, that too remains unclear and unproven.
Bernie Sanders told some reporters in California a message regarding Russia and the election coming up.
"It was not clear what role they're going to play. We were told that Russia, maybe other countries, are going to get involved in this campaign, and look, here's the message to Russia: stay out of American elections," Sanders said.
"And what they are doing, by the way, the ugly thing that they are doing, and I've seen some of their tweets and stuff, is they try to divide us up. That's what they did in 2016 and that is the ugliest thing they are doing -- is they are trying to cause chaos, they are trying to cause hatred in America."Get Yours Now!
The Vermont senator speculated that the news broke on Friday afternoon in order to have an impact on Saturday's Nevada caucuses, in which he is a leading candidate.
Two of Sanders' centrist Democratic rivals seized on the news, with Michael Bloomberg's campaign calling Russian support for Sanders a "no-brainer" for Moscow. (CNN)
Of course we should take this with a grain of salt. When it comes time to vote, the only person responsible for your vote is YOU, and you can vote for anyone you wish and never tell a single person about it.
No one is responsible for your decision in the voting booth besides yourself.
