Sounds like Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe may have another video in the offing.
President Donald Trump tweeted about Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) who is presently surging in a tight race for the Democratic presidential nomination.
Wow! Crazy Bernie Sanders is surging in the polls, looking very good against his opponents in the Do Nothing Party. So what does this all mean? Stay tuned!

Then O’Keefe responded, teasing that something big was about to come out on Sanders.
Stay tuned everyone. Something very big is going to happen.

It looks like there are going to be multiple drops. Pass the popcorn!
There have already been a lot of videos floating around the internet about Bernie and his trip to the Soviet Union and some of his more outlandish radical statements from the past. So guessing, this will have even more pop.
Sanders has been running a strong second to Joe Biden and is leading or tied in the first two primary states, Iowa and New Hampshire, according to USA Today. If he were to win those, he could catch a lot of momentum.
That’s why some are positing the theory that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s three-week delay of the impeachment articles might not just have been about trying to force concessions from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), but perhaps in part about keeping Sanders and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) off the campaign trail with the impeachment trial in Washington, D.C., in a bid to help Biden.
Not like the Democratic establishment hasn’t tried to rig things against him in the past, as everyone remembers from 2016. It’s not to hard to imagine that someone might have considered the timing in all this. Pelosi did end up conceding, getting nothing out of the whole game-playing except the delay.
Both Biden and Sanders have liabilities for the Democrats for the general election. The smart money says that Trump will walk away with it if Bernie is the nominee because, among other things, the American public is still not ready for a socialist.
From Daily Wire:
In a recent interview with Politico, Jim Messina, Barack Obama’s 2012 campaign manager, warned Democrats that if Sanders is the Democratic nominee that Democrats will struggle across the board in national elections.
“If I were a campaign manager for Donald Trump and I look at the field, I would very much want to run against Bernie Sanders,” Messina said. “I think the contrast is the best. He can say, ‘I’m a business guy, the economy’s good and this guy’s a socialist.’ I think that contrast for Trump is likely one that he’d be excited about in a way that he wouldn’t be as excited about Biden or potentially Mayor Pete or some of the more Midwestern moderate candidates.”
It’s hard to imagine Biden making it through without major gaffes, although he’s survived a ton of gaffes and even improper touching allegations
All things being equal and where they stand now, it’s quite likely Trump will walk away with it whether it’s either one of them.
But if anything further drops on either one of them, in a tight race, it could make a difference.
