Sanders declares in the statement today that it’s “nonsense” to say such a thing. This is how he responded to calls to denounce the violence from his supporters:
Our campaign has held giant rallies all across this country, including in high crime areas, and there have been zero reports of violence. Our campaign of course believes in non-violent change and it goes without saying that I condemn any and all forms of violence, including the personal harassment of individuals. But, when we speak of violence, I should add here that months ago, during the Nevada campaign, shots were fired into my campaign office in Nevada and an apartment housing my campaign staff was broken into and ransacked.
He proceeds to denounce the supposedly unfair delegate system in Nevada in which the state Democrats “used its power to prevent a fair and transparent process from taking place.”
