Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) apologized to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during Saturday’s Democratic debate for his campaign’s breach of Clinton campaign data.
“Does Secretary Clinton deserve an apology tonight?” moderator David Muir asked Sanders.
“Yes, I apologize,” replied Sanders.
Sanders added that in addition to Clinton, he wanted to apologize to his supporters.
“This is not the type of campaign that we run,” Sanders said, adding that he has fired the individual responsible and also will fire any others found responsible for the breach as well.
Sanders said that the DNC overreached in its decision to suspend his campaign from its own data.
The Sanders and Clinton campaigns have been involved in a legal dispute with the DNC over the breach. Sanders called the dispute “resolved” and said that he hopes Clinton will join him in calling for an independent investigation.
