Elizabeth Warren accused Bernie Sanders of calling her a liar before a national television audience during a post-debate exchange in which she refused to shake his outstretched hand, according to audio released by CNN.

The Democratic presidential rivals are both progressives who had steadfastly refused to attack each other for more than a year on the campaign trail.

But that changed on Monday, when Ms Warren said that during a private meeting between the two in 2018, he disagreed with her that a woman could win the presidency.

I think you called me a liar on national television

Mr Sanders, a senator from Vermont, has denied that, and did so again during Tuesday night’s presidential debate, which was hosted by CNN and the Des Moines Register and held in Iowa, whose first-in-the-nation caucuses are on February 3.

Ms Warren stood by her account and said it was time to confront the larger issues of sexism in politics.

That exchange lasted only a few minutes, but after the debate was over, Ms Warren, a Massachusetts senator, approached Mr Sanders, who put out his hand for her to shake. Instead, she confronted him, and the two talked briefly in tense tones.

Let’s not do it right now

Neither campaign would confirm what was said Tuesday night, but CNN released the audio on Wednesday. As she is refusing his extended hand, Ms Warren repeats, “I think you called me a liar on national television.”

Mr Sanders gently brushes her with his hand, then says, “Let’s not do it right now.”

“You want to have that discussion?” he continues. “We’ll have that discussion.” Ms Warren replies, “Anytime.”

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

The exchange was interrupted by fellow candidate and environmentalist Tom Steyer, who said, “I don’t want to get in the middle of it” and greeted Mr Sanders as the senator walked away.

Ms Warren’s and Mr Sanders’s aides have for days attempted to de-escalate the feud as some progressives worry that ill will between the cause’s two leading voices will ultimately hurt both of them and could benefit more moderate Democratic presidential hopefuls such as former Vice President Joe Biden and former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
