Pretty clear pattern of the first story out of the Bernie campaign usually being a lie and then needing to be walked back a few days later.

It is incredible that Sanders' and Warren' campaign are doing a better job at boosting Biden's chances than Biden's own campaign. Get it together guys.

The leak of this was such a non-issue, I don't understand why they'd bother lying about it. After what Warren pulled yesterday this shit looks like peanuts.

Oh. Looks like they were real. The campaign never officially denied the veracity of the documents.

The stuff in them were pretty tame and generally accurate.

So if I'm reading this article right, it was used for a single day before being pulled back? Still not a good look to try and deny it, especially considering the script itself doesn't even seem to have been that terrible.

"people who support her are highly-educated, more affluent people who are going to show up and vote Democratic no matter what” and that “she's bringing no new bases into the Democratic Party.”
This is from the article. Are these the vicious, dirty attacks that Sanders' team is unleashing on Elizabeth Warren?

wait, so if i am reading this right, its anti-warren and not anti WOMEN right? I did not read in this article that he said shes un-electable because shes a women, but because of per politics.

At first i read that tag line as "anti-WOMEN" had to re-read it a few times

Sanders does something that has plausible deniability : Indefinite defense force

Sanders does something that has no deniability : "lol it's nothin"

From the sounds of it, it was technicallly more pro-bernie than anti anyone in particular but there were optional sections to try and convert supporters of each of the remaining candidates

So incredibly sloppy.

Was wondering yesterday is this would explain the "leak" from Warren's camp. ie, gloves are off, so we might as well throw punches

Sounds like miscommunication then.
Or obscuring the truth if this was actually a deliberate, concerted effort by the Sanders campaign (ie, signed off by him or someone high up) to begin attacking Warren and hoping no one notices. Though it seems like a bizarre and uncharacteristic tactic from the Sanders camp to knowingly do this and then clumsily backpedal the moment it's brought to light.

it's not even an attack, it's a true factual statement
Yes, but there had been an agreement between their campaigns (I'm pretty sure) not to do this sort of stuff, however accurate. Thus the response from Sanders and his campaign.
