CNN had the backup recording system rolling at the Democratic Debate as it picked up the tense exchange between Bernie Sander and Elizabeth Warren.

From CNN:

I think you called me a liar on national TV," Warren can be heard saying.

"What?" Sanders responded.

"I think you called me a liar on national TV," she repeated.

"You know, let's not do it right now. If you want to have that discussion, we'll have that discussion," Sanders said, to which Warren replied, "Anytime."

"You called me a liar," Sanders continued. "You told me -- all right, let's not do it now."

After their exchange, fellow Democratic candidate Tom Steyer, who had been standing behind the two senators, can be heard saying, "I don't want to get in the middle. I just want to say hi Bernie."

A spokesperson for the Sanders campaign declined to comment on the audio. A spokesperson for Warren's campaign did not respond to a request for comment.

There must be a misunderstanding in the context of whatever occurred between these two progressives. But Bernie was saying the right things before many.

I think we should put this one to rest and remember Warren's excellent comment.

So ... rather than "call her a liar", Sanders was supposed to admit to something he never did? Is this the level we've sunk to? Warren should hang it up. Or maybe she's in the race to split the so-called progressive vote into two non-viable camps. Will she start getting $400,000 a pop to speak to corporate CEOs like Obomber? This whole charade could have been orchestrated by Trump. Only he didn't have to bother.

Hello Egberto, I agree. The progressive wing of the Democratic Party has two excellent candidates. I rank them Liz Warren first and Bernie Sanders second. But I will proudly vote for Warren or Sanders in November. I also agree it is time to move on from the fight; the Trump folk have been stoking the flames by pitting Bernie against Liz on twitter.

Don't count Hillary out on that stoking. Let's not forget they have huddled in the past as well as present and let's not forget the Chameleon Warren makes decisions based on her political career, even using falsehoods, and let's be reminded the Superdelegates don't come into play until the 2nd ballot at the convention. If Warren can keep Bernie from gaining 51% on that first ballot, which I believe Hillary is betting on, it could open it up for a major push for Hillary on that 2nd one. Her psychotic ego still thinks she deserves to be on that throne and Warren will play that game if she is told she would be on the ticket as V.P.
