Turning to Warren, Phillip asked a question whose premise was that she didn't believe Sanders - a rare implied rebuke of a major presidential candidate by a debate moderator.

During this week's Democratic presidential debate in Des Moines, Iowa, Massachusetts Sen.

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 Sanders as the senator walked 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.

CNN released audio of the exchange late Wednesday, revealing that Warren accused Sanders of calling her a "liar on national TV". Then Sanders was condemned for allegedly expressing doubts, during a 2018 conversation with Warren, that a woman can win the White House.

Sanders responded that Warren, in fact, had called him a liar but said they should discuss the incident another time. "If you want to have that discussion, we'll have that discussion", Sanders said, as Warren replied, "Anytime".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) announced Thursday that the trial will begin in earnest on Tuesday, Jan. 21, but it's not clear how long the trial will take.

Sanders, a USA senator from Vermont, has been on the defensive this week after Warren accused him of telling her in a 2018 meeting that a woman could not win the White House in 2020. "Bernie Sanders' authenticity, honesty, and movement for equality is the antidote our nation needs now".

The two have been feuding for days over what was said during a private December 2018 dinner at Warren's Washington apartment.

"You called me a liar".

Sanders said: "You called me a liar". "I disagreed", she said. To defeat Trump at the end of this year, Democrats need to ensure black, Latino and suburban voters are excited to vote against the Republican president.

She pointed out that the two women onstage, herself and Senator Amy Klobuchar, were the only two candidates to have won all their elections, while the men onstage had collectively lost 10 races.
