Leaked audio has revealed a tense exchange between top Democratic candidates vying for the party nomination to take on USA president Donald Trump in the country's election later this year. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in the progressive feud with Sen. Moments earlier Warren had refused to shake Sanders' hand. The two senators seemed to have a heated and brief exchange before Sanders appeared to throw his hands up, turn and walk away.

Let's say Warren, having rebooted her campaign with her debate exchange on gender and her case that she's the best unifier, wins Iowa.

Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, the two leading liberal presidential candidates, accused each other of calling the other a "liar" in an extraordinary exchange caught on a CNN microphone moments after the end of Tuesday's presidential debate. In 1999, it took five weeks for the Senate to acquit then-President Bill Clinton, although a White House official told reporters that Trump believes it will be finished in just two weeks.

"I think you called me a liar on national TV", Warren said again.

Speaking about the accusation Warren leveled against Sanders ahead of the Democratic debate in Iowa, Cobb said he was not going to "guess and say who's right and who's wrong". If you want to have that discussion, we'll have that discussion.

Mr Sanders then adds, "You called me a liar", before concluding, "All right, let's not do it now".

Views of the Sanders-Warren battle are hardening fast and tensions are running hot as supporters for each candidate retreat to their corners to accuse the other side of playing dirty. What stopped her becoming president was not Americans' refusal to vote for a woman, but the vagaries of the USA electoral college, which requires candidates to win a majority of states not votes. Bernie Sanders after the debate and said he'd called her a "liar" over their disagreement about a private meeting in 2018.

In a recent post, Sanders For President moderator Kevin Moore announced that all CNN content will be removed from the community for the foreseeable future because CNN "have abandoned their journalistic integrity". The implication was that Warren was making the whole thing up, or had an interpretation of what was said that was significantly different from his.

Senator Steyer said: "I don't want to get in the middle".

"I heard a question wrong at a very noisy press conference", Warren told former "Meet the Press" host David Gregory during a Herald-sponsored debate with Brown on October 1, 2012. "They are bringing him out of so important Iowa in order that, as a Senator, he sit through" the trial, giving Biden a "strong edge", Trump added. Collectively they have lost 10 elections.
