By Daily Caller. 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders dodged answering a question Wednesday on why he has not released his full health records.
The Vermont senator pointed out at a presidential debate Wednesday night that 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg has also had health issues.
“Sen. Sanders, when you were here in Las Vegas in October, you were hospitalized with a heart attack,” one of the debate moderators said. “Afterwards you pledged to make quote all your medical records public.”
“You’ve released three letters from your doctors, but you now say you won’t release anything more. What happened to your promise of full transparency?” the moderator continued. . .
“Let me tell you what happened. First of all, you’re right, and thank you, Las Vegas, for the excellent medical care I got in the hospital two days,” he said[.]
Bloomberg had an irregular heartbeat & stents. But I've seen no record of attack. Checking now.pic.twitter.com/iW5Ag2xbUt

Bernie Sanders Suggests Online Attacks From Bernie Supporters Might Be the Russians
By Daily Caller. Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders suggested Wednesday that online attacks attributed to his supporters, known as “Bernie Bros,” might be the Russians trying to “divide” Americans.
Sanders made the argument during the Democratic primary debate in Las Vegas after taking criticism for not doing more to prevent his supporters from attacking others online.
“We have over 10.6 million people on Twitter and 99.9% of them are decent human beings, are working people, are people who believe in justice, compassion and love,” Sanders began, adding that the vast number of attacks and ugly remarks could really be attributed to a very small percentage of people.
“I disown those people, they are not part of our movement,” Sanders continued, noting that his own campaign staffers were not immune from attacks. “Let me also say — what I hope my friends up here will agree with — is that if you look at the wild west of the Internet, talk to some of the African American women on my campaign … And find the vicious, racist, sexist attacks that are coming their way as well. So I would hope that all of us understand that we should do everything we possibly can to end the viciousness and ugliness on the Internet. Our campaign is about issues. It’s about fighting for the working families and the middle class. It is not about vicious attacks on other people.” (Read more from “Bernie Sanders Suggests Online Attacks From Bernie Supporters Might Be the Russians” HERE)
