Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) told Anderson Cooper that interim DNC chairwoman Donna Brazile "showed an enormous amount of courage" in telling the "the truth" about her time at the helm Wednesday night on CNN. However, Sanders said it is time to "go forward," "not to look backward."
ANDERSON COOPER, CNN: And just lastly, the reporting last week about the agreement the DNC had with the Clinton campaign. Senator Warren said it was proof the primary process was rigged. Donna Brazile, who was the source of this story now says it wasn't rigged.
Let me ask you, was -- in your opinion, was it rigged?
SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: Look, Donna Brazile showed an enormous amount of courage in describing the truth as she saw it when she came into the leadership of the DNC. I don't think there's any sane human being who doesn't believe that my campaign was taking on the entire establishment including the DNC.
But, Anderson, to be very honest with you -- my job, our job is to go forward, is do everything we can to defeat this right wing agenda of the Republican Party in the Trump administration, not to look backwards.
COOPER: Senator Sanders, appreciate your time. Thank you.
